1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 ConvertibleThis is a real-deal 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 Convertible with an enhanced 455ci V8 and four-on-the-floor. So you already it's a dream muscle machine even before you check out how awesome everything is from the sleek paint to the bright interior.
Azure Blue is a light color with a radiant finish that seems to really draw attention to this premium Olds. That's especially true because this factory-correct color has been given a high-quality respray that even makes it smooth to the touch. The light loves to roll off the sheetmetal and highlight the iconic curves of the Cutlass design. So it's awesome to have a convertible that loves to go out in the sunlight like this one. Plus, you get even more shine from the well-done brightwork package with form-fitting bumpers, large dual exhaust tips, and 15-inch Cragar wheels. It's a look that both sporty and brilliant.
The newer white convertible top looks great against the light blue - the full impression is like a sunny day sky. So you'll be quite happy when you flip the switch, and it powers down to reveal an equally nice white interior. In fact, it's a well-done full color package. Because while the seats and door panels are done in white, the carpeting is done in a deep blue to hide more dirt from your shoes. And this coordinates with the kick plates and dash for an attractive total sea of blue and white. You'll enjoy vintage details, including the wood-like trim and AM radio that's still on display. But what really makes this one irresistible is how much of a driver's machine it is. You have classic Olds performance pieces, like the four-spoke sports steering wheel (power steering) and large round gauges featuring a tic-toc-tach. These are joined by nice upgrades like the cleanly installed auxiliary readout trio and the Hurst floor shifter.
While the exterior has plenty of nice blue, the blue that you'll like be showing off the most is the block of the big 455 cubic-inch V8. It's so bright in the dark engine bay that it looks like this muscle machine is radiating power. And this one certainly is thanks to upgrades like a Holley Street Avenger four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Torker 455 intake, and a wicked set of long tube headers feeding the dual exhaust. Even the fundamentals are well-done with an electronic ignition, new alternator, tidy wires, and newer lines. This mighty V8 fires up nicely, and you take full control of the power and rumbling soundtrack thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. You can see from the undercarriage photos that even the bottom of this car is looking fresh. Plus, you'll spot nice features, like the boxed rear trailing arms w/sway bar, 12-bolt rear end, and power front disc brakes.
This is a clean and bright presentation of a seriously powerful 442. So if you love open-top driving of a with plenty of muscle behind it, call today!
