1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass

This 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass convertible has a few interesting stories to tell. First of all, t's very neatly preserved by people who definitely thought it was something special. And second, t spent most of its life in single family ownership, aving been passed down as a cherished family heirloom. Of course, hat also overlooks the fact that the Cutlass was arguably the best-looking of the A-bodies and costs a fraction of its Chevrolet and Pontiac siblings.Perhaps Bamboo isn't the flashiest color for a muscle car, ut the Cutlass is about more than just horsepower. The blend of performance and luxury that Oldsmobile offered is embodied in this Cutlass ragtop. The body is sporty, ith dramatic curves, lared fenders, nd a handsome front end that was instantly recognizable as being from the rocket division. But it's a sophisticated kind of sporty, ot aggressive or over-blown, hich means no stripes or brash nicknames, ust an upscale look with a subtle paint job that still looks fantastic. The car has never been wrecked or rusty, o everything fits together exactly the way the factory assembled it more than 40 years ago. Even the chrome is still quite nice, ith no parking lot dings or signs of corrosion around the edges, hich is doubly impressive in a car that was actually, ou know, sed as a car for many years. Yes, t's been used and driven, o it's not perfect and there are some bumps and bruises, ut if you want a solid A-body that's led a good life, ou could do a lot worse than this pretty ragtop.Choosing a black interior with the Bamboo paint was the right choice, lthough I'm guessing the brochures of the time were pushing white interiors instead. Bucket seats, center console, nd factory A/C suggest that someone was feeling generous with the options list and had this Cutlass built just the way he wanted it. Other things, ike the burled walnut dash appliques, he stainless steel gauge faces, nd 4-spoke steering wheel were all standard Cutlass fare, nd the combination works really well. An AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit replaces the original radio, nd a matching black convertible top with glass rear window looks almost too nice to be original, ut it might be. It includes a matching boot that gives the Olds a finished look that's perfect for, ay, arades and sunny days. The trunk is pretty original with the factory mat still keeping things tidy and the spare tire looks to be quite recent. Oldsmobile's 350 cubic inch V8 shared exactly zero components with the Chevy version, nd thanks to its higher nickel content in the iron block, as proven to be virtually indestructible out in the real world. It has a distinctive sound all its own, sophisticated sound that's perfect for the Cutlass's dual nature. It's nicely preserved, ith gold paint on the engine, riginal air cleaner, nd a lot of new components that say someone loved to drive it. The floors are shockingly clean, nd the chassis is almost 100% original save for the exhaust system, hich interestingly enough hasn't even been converted to duals. Both the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and 12-bolt rear end have been recently serviced and the brakes were replaced within the past 12 months, o it's ready to enjoy. Classic Oldsmobile Rally wheels are painted a contrasting dark tan and wear 215/70/14 BFG radials.A neat car with a great story to tell makes for a fun hobby vehicle. The fact that it's a V8-powered A-body convertible is just icing on the cake. Call now!
