Cutlass F85 Restomod
VALUE PRICED RESTOMOD, GRAND NATIONAL 3.8 TURBO V6, AUTO, PS, P TOP, FRONT DISCS
Time to pay attention, because this is one of the most interesting custom builds we've seen in quite some time. On the surface, this is a 1963 Oldsmobile Cutlass F85 convertible. But beneath the skin lies the legendary fuel-injected and turbocharged heart of a '80s Buick Grand National.
The first-generation Cutlass is a great place to start this modification. As GM's compact offering, it is smaller and lighter than many others out there. But it also has great big car styling. This Cutlass has a commanding presence with wraparound chrome bumpers, full-length trim, and the broad grille can fully spell O-L-D-S-M-O-B-I-L-E in wide block letters. Its charisma is only heightened by a modern application of graphite metallic paint. This looks terrific in the sunlight (exactly what you want on a convertible) and it draws attention to all the well-creased sheetmetal. Plus, this modern color goes great with this car's dark side seen on the blacked-out alloy wheel and newer black convertible top.
If you like the way the car looks with the top up, then you'll love it even more when you take the power folding roof down. The black interior gives this total package a nice coordination inside and out. Plus, this has a nice original-style feeling on everything from the AM radio to the insignia door panels. And originality is quite a nice thing to have in an Olds. It means deeply bolstered bucket seats, a grippy steering wheel, and a speedometer as long as the horizon.
What really makes this one so special is what's under the hood. The 3.8-liter fuel-injected V6 turbo motor from a 1980s Buick Grand National is an impressive sight. After all, these turned those Buicks into Corvette contenders. This modern powerhouse was so cleanly installed that is almost looks like this Olds was born two decades later. And this thoughtful build also includes a large aluminum radiator and the Optima red top battery mounted in the trunk for better weight distribution. Because this brings serious power to the streets, you'll be glad to have features like a front disc brakes, a thick front sway bar, and Cooper Cobra GT tires. Plus, to make sure this is an easy cruiser, too, you have power steering and a three-speed automatic transmission.
Not only would you expect to pay a ton more for a Buick Grand National, you now also get that power package in a classic Olds droptop body. So this is the value-priced custom you know will be leaving us soon. Call today!!!
