BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED, LOADED, DEALER INVOICE, PROTECT-O-PLATE, WINDOW STICKER!
Is there some kind of support group for guys who love the Oldsmobile A-bodies too much? Because after you see this wonderful 1972 Cutlass Supreme, you'll probably agree that Olds got it right with this one. Sporty, elegant, and quick, it's the perfect combination of features for a guy who doesn't need 500 cubic inches and flashy stripes to have a good time in an old car. Throw in a trunk full of original docs and this one is our kind of keeper.
Oldsmobile called the color "Saddle Bronze" but we see it all over the place today on cars ranging from Ford trucks to high-end Lexus models. It works extremely well on the chiseled Oldsmobile's sheetmetal, looking exactly right for 1972 but also fashionable in 2013. Cool, right? You're also going to be pleased to see how straight it is underneath, so you don't need to make any excuses for this Cutlass, because it's every bit as nice as it appears in the photos. No stripes, no modified hood, nothing that gets in the way of the original look that is GM's best blend of performance and style of the era. A new vinyl top looks great and fits snugly with no worries because isn't hiding any of the usual stuff underneath. There's plenty of chrome acting as jewelry against the Saddle Bronze paint, plus the tightly-knit front grille and matching taillights that make it sparkle.
It definitely looks like a luxury car inside, where dark tan bucket seats add to the upscale atmosphere. The upholstery is in excellent condition, which is thanks to a combination of durable materials and excellent care. A center console is always a great option in an A-body, and the shifter is topped with a wooden handle for a bit of elegance that fits with the overall cozy feeling inside. Factory air is not unusual in these cars, but it sure is nice when you're out cruising or on a long road trip. Even the original AM/FM radio is in the dash, so it's comfortable and still stock so it'll be welcome at any show you attend without having to make disclaimers about modifications. The gauges with their clear black-and-white markings look great, the bright needles are still vivid, and here's a big surprise-the clock still works! Open the trunk and you'll find a very solid floor with correct spatter-finish paint and a matching full-sized SSII wheel and tire setup.
Guys who know Oldsmobiles know that the 350 inch small block is as durable as a block of granite and makes great torque that its siblings over at Chevy and Pontiac envy. With a unique sound, it fires easily and offers a slightly lumpy idle that hints of performance to come. The engine was recently detailed with a fresh coat of Oldsmobile Gold paint, a restore air cleaner, and new ignition components, but otherwise looks like a very well-maintained machine that has never needed major surgery. It's backed by a TH350 3-speed automatic and a set of 2.73 gears in the 10-bolt rear, so it just loafs along at highway speeds, making it the ideal car for long road trips. A big part of the Cutlass's sporty demeanor comes from those cool SSII wheels, which wear 215/70/14 white-letter radials.
Nicely documented with original dealer invoice, Protect-O-Plate, window sticker, and owner's manual, this is an extremely nice Cutlass that has a lot of provenance behind it. Is it any wonder why we love them so much? Call today!
