1969 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 Tribute Convertible

If you want high-visibility, maximum performance, and plenty of luxury, all with a side of open-air fun, then this 1969 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 Tribute convertible should grab your attention. It's beautifully finished in Nassau Blue with white stripes, and the strong-running big block 455 V8 and good list of Oldsmobile comfort and convenience features make it a great alternative to the usual A-body choices. Blue and white stripes on a Cutty convertible just feels right. So during... the restoration this '69 was torn down, smoothed, sanded, and prepped, then covered back in Code 53 Nassau Blue paint, and wow, does it look good! The two-stage urethane gives it a fantastic shine and the white stripes in traditional 442 patterns were painted on, not decals, then buried under the clear coat so it has a very smooth, seamless look. The hood bulges practically lend themselves to the stripe treatment and outlining the wheel arches with chrome trim and adding white rocker panel stripes makes the car look even longer and lower than it is. Correct 442 badges have been placed in all the right spots, so it'll take an expert and a look under the hood to prove it's not a real 442. Other parts like the bumpers, the grilles, and the cool Oldsmobile rocket side marker lights add up to a car that has a lot of visual appeal, even up close. The blue interior is obviously a perfect complement for the exterior and it's also been beautifully maintained, showing off mostly original, well-preserved parts. Code 943 blue vinyl is the factory spec inside, and it has an upscale feel that isn't often found with OEM parts, but Oldsmobile always went the extra mile when it came to their interiors. Both bench seats are comfortable and only show slight wear and tear, the door panels are in similarly good condition, and the blue carpets below are protected by heavy-duty rubber mats, just like the ones you got from the dealer. That OEM feeling is reinforced by the cool original steering wheel and round instrument pods inside the tidy, uncracked original dash ahead of the driver. The gauge markings are big and bright and the original gauges are aided by a couple auxiliary units below the dash, and there's a AM/FM/Cassette stereo head unit in the center of the dash, which powers speakers installed throughout the cabin. A nice-looking power white convertible top offers a glass rear window and the trunk is neatly finished with what might very well be the original mat and full size spare. Power comes from a stout 455 cubic inch Oldsmobile V8, which was offered for the first time in 1969 in the Cutlass and then quickly became THE motor to have if you wanted to plant big power. Reported to have been rebuilt less than 5k miles ago and wearing Oldsmobile Gold paint and a few dress-up parts, it's a fun, reliable, and torquey powerplant that suits this ragtop quite well. The engine bay is very clean, with a lot of newer parts, including the Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold, Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor, and an aluminum radiator up front keeping the big block nice and cool. Thanks to a full HEI system it starts with that familiar Oldsmobile starter chatter and settles into a nice factory idle, burbling through stock exhaust manifolds that feed the dual exhaust and factory-style chambered mufflers. It's linked to a quick-shifting 2004R 3-speed automatic transmission and a heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end, so the powertrain is reliable and durable. Very solid, undercoated floors mean this car will last forever and it sits on color-matched Rallye II wheels with 225/70/14 white-letter performance radials. If you crave attention, this Olds will deliver. But if you simply want a fun ragtop with a comfortable interior and plenty of performance, well, this is also an excellent choice for that. Either way, you're getting a lot of car for the money. Call today!
