1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass S

This was running as a daily driver for a senior in Wisconsin when put away 9 yrs ago. She was not original owner, she bought it because it was purple.
Once home I will begin prepping cleaning tuning etc and cost goes up accordingly . 6-28-19
I would rather sell as is to. Someone who will take care if it and maybe continue its life for years to come .
I have many original parts, bumpers, trim, lots trim. Valve covers, dash bezel etc. not sure if this helps but there you go. Also have some original glass, and intake w carb but its still located in WI so depending on when I get it back down here I will throw it in no extra cost.
So whats your offer 😀
DUE to an Overwhelming response of idiots offering $1500 etc. we will just start at 10,000 or best offer
I am not trying to part this out in any way shape or form
I Will be cleaning and getting it ready to go updating with pictures and text as it happens
7-02-19 Update
Simple car wash, before it started storming.
Starts runs drives stops, no smoke! I put top end engine cleaner in cylinders and let sit for a few days.
Changed oil, flushed cylinders, drained fuel, changed spark plugs, and it started right up. Had high idle for longer than normal, but finally kicked down. After cooling and restarting hours later it was closer to normal.
Brakes suc, shocks are useless, motor purs, holds leak down test on all 8!
Has rear main seal oil leak, not bad at all, but its there.
Tons of power, runs so smooth would not know it was not fuel injected. Instant response.
I have a lot more pics and video of motor running and walk under frame on both sides, its in great shape.
YouTube vids
SO far I noticed the following
Olds 5.7 350 Rocket 4bbl
Headers, Cherry Bombs? I would swap to Flow Master for better sound.
Newer oil pan, valve covers, timing cover and most all top end gaskets have been replaced.
Carb was rebuild months before it sat, and it shows it by purring.
Newer belts, hoses, tires like new, no sign of rot, still have tabs.
Newer starter, alternator and pulleys.
The body work is very nice, needs a good buff or detail to make paint pop.
Body panels need aligning along with the hood seems like some one was in a rush when installing, simple alignment issues. Floor boards have new cut in panels, and trunk is same with some kind of rubber sealer on top, looks nice.
If I kept this car I would install 4 wheel disc brakes $890 Summit Kit. New shocks, add a limited slip to rear end. Align panels, and add a kick'n sound system.( sound done :)
Maybe a better dress kit for motor
So $1500 plus sweat and your riding in style.
UPDATE 7-8-19
Drove Cutlass for 2 hours local . Runs great, shifts awesome. Changing master cylinder and bleeding/ flushing brake system today.
Replaced head unit with Sony. New 6x9 speaker, am, 12" rebuildable aluminum sub woofer.
Some chrome polish and repaired exhaust hanger.
Added K&N air filter, and oil filter re changed oil using Amsoil
8-3-19Installed a cheesy purple led kit. ( had many asking why did it not have one? not my thing)
Just keeps getting better and better
Will now star, ru, driv, stop and sound good.
Purple led's being added this week under hood and under car
I can help deliver for a fee depending how far.
I will consider offers over the going rate to end early.
This car is able to be viewed please contact me to schedule.
I have a bunch of original parts that are included, spare tire & rim ( brown) air cleaner, valve covers, misc chrome trim, misc interior panels. just a bunch of original stuff from this car.
