1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass SupremeIt's hard not to get excited about an affordable 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme coupe that been restored with a custom paint theme inside and out. And the original Olds 350 V8 under the hood even gets an extra kick of power.
You know from the moment you lay eyes on this coupe that it's no ordinary Cutlass. It has a terrific paint theme that starts with a bold blue with a metallic element that loves the sunshine. There's a full black accent package laid on top of this. You have detailed black side stripes that really draw attention to some of this coupe's best profile lines. Plus, the dual racing stripe are fully panted on top, including the roof. This is joined by the blackout grille, headlight bezels, taillight trim, and tinted windows for a well-coordinated dark side. Big Weld Racing wheels and wide dual exhaust tips give it plenty of mean-looking pieces. Plus, there's an overall feeling of quality in the details, including the rockers and form-fitting chrome bumpers.
Inside is more of the custom presentation. Where the exterior was blue with black accents, the interior is dominated by black with plenty of blue details. This is a well-done look with thoughtful touches, like the Hurst shifter in the center console. And we like how the custom look of the front bucket seats still follows the classic Olds-style upholstery pattern. More of this correct-style presentation is in the four-spoke sports steering wheel and plenty of clean wood-like trim. This even appears to be a factory air conditioning car (it will need components and servicing to return the function.) So you just know this is the right one to roll down all the windows on this pillarless coupe and enjoy a long drive.
Oldsmobile people know that a Rocket 350 cubic-inch engine is something very special. They manufactured their own V8s in this era, and these are legendary for being hardy motors. So it's fantastic to see the original numbers-matching motor in the engine bay. But while this correct golden block looks great radiating from this dark and tidy setup, there's more here than just stock. The V8 inhales deeper with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with added authority and power as long tube headers feed the dual exhaust. It's a strong V8 that starts easy thanks to an HEI ignition. When you get you on the road, you also feel that this has the right features for a great all-around driver. It includes power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes, sway bars front & rear, and Firestone Firehawk tires with extra meaty rear ones.
This custom blue and black Cutlass is a cool and distinct coupe offered at a great price. Call today!!!
