1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass
It's a rolling example of mid-'80s style that's logged unusually light mileage and is well positioned to offer its nostalgia-inducing magic for miles and miles to come. This 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass is looking sharp, running great and will arrive with a clean AutoCheck on hand as backup that it's had the good fortune to avoid any collisions of note over the years. After more than 30 years of service, the burgundy shade draped over its exterior still looks impressively sharp. This Olds hasn't likely seen the inside of a paint booth since it first debuted, so this is almost certainly the very same paint it's been carrying since its start and you'd be hard pressed to find an example of a factory-issued counterpart of its vintage looking this impressive. In all respects, this Cutlass looks worlds more vital than a car of its age would logically have a right to - its painted-on pinstripes still offer a nice contrast to the rest of the exterior, the split front grille looks clean, the chrome trim around the windows and doors is shiny and shows no pitting, and the glass surrounding the cabin is in consistently good shape. The bumpers in both front and back still sit table-straight and show no evidence of having made contact with any immovable objects. Even the vinyl top, so often a sign of a car's exposure to the elements, has a supple, impressively fresh look to it. The CB antenna mounted at the center of the deck lid offers yet another touch of mojo from a bygone era. Take a look inside and you'll see an interior that's still in great form as it exudes its thoroughly '80s vibe. The burgundy crushed velour surfaces of the front buckets and rear bench seats really looks great and the padding just below is very much intact for plenty of comfort. Matching carpeting lines the floor and it, too, is in unusually clean shape, not showing the evidence of foot traffic you'd expect. Between the buckets is a center console that's a fitting reminder of its era as well - it features a recessed, specially designed area to hold a half dozen cassettes in queue for the factory AM/FM/cassette stereo still performing its duties in the dash. The stock Olds steering wheel sits on the column and the array of woodgrain accents throughout the cabin are still looking fresh and strong. The functionality on display inside is surprisingly high. The instrument cluster houses factory gauges that all perform as intended, the electric door lock and windows are in top form, the air conditioning blows strong and cold and even the CB radio mounted under the dash is completely operable. Just as is the case with every other aspect of this car, the engine compartment is as tidy and well-detailed as you could hope for. The original 5.0 liter V8 sits at its center, firing up quickly and running very smoothly. It's fed by a 4-barrel carb and teams with a 3-speed automatic transmission that shifts with precision. Power steering makes for easy navigation, while power brakes featuring discs up front combine with a recently replaced master cylinder to bring prompt stops. This unusually well-maintained mid-'80s Oldsmobile rolls on a set of stock 14" rims outfitted with Douglas all-season tires that have plenty of tread left, while the undercarriage looks nice and solid underneath. Thoroughly maintained and well-protected from the hands of time, this 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass is a truly rare find. Call today!
