WHAT A GREAT LOOK! CLEAN TOO! 425 V8, AUTO, NEW POWER CANVAS TOP, READY 2 CRUISE
This 1966 Oldsmobile convertible might be the biggest bargain sitting in our showroom today. If you're reading this and the car appeals to you, call now, because I can almost guarantee that someone else is thinking the same thing you are and it won't be here if you wait.
Not some 442 mash-up, merely a clean, straight old ragtop with a lot of recent work. The intermediate Cutlass has great proportions and is just the right size for fun today. Grab some buddies and hit the road, there's room for everyone, but it's especially sporty at the same time. The fresh burgundy paint looks fantastic on the chiseled Olds body, and highlights details that you may not have noticed on these cars before. Note the kick-up behind the door that makes the rear quarters look like they're coiled and ready to spring, the subtle flares around the wheel well openings, and the simple hood that eschews scoops and stripes for simplicity. It's just as straight as it looks in photos, and clearly it's lived a good life, which is another reason you shouldn't wait to call; clean cars like this just don't grow on trees, you know. Chrome is also quite good, with a lot of it being refinished in the past, and overall the car has an outstanding look that's neither over-the-top nor a wallflower.
No disappointments inside, either. There are twin buckets with custom two-tone upholstery, a few tasty upgrades, and a performance vibe that's also very grown-up. The seats offer matching burgundy inserts that give it a very sporting look that neatly blurs the line between custom and OEM, and the mini console has a pair of aftermarket gauge to help monitor the engine's vitals. Round instruments give it a racy look, augmented by that three-spoke steering wheel that's the epitome of '60s cool. There's a lot of recent stuff here and as a result, the interior is quite nice and ready to enjoy without any additional investment. A digital AM/FM/CD stereo radio is a recent addition and sounds great top up or top down. And speaking of the top, it's new, too, and was done in black canvas instead of vinyl, so it looks expensive indeed. You'll also note that the trunk has been upholstered in matching black carpet to give it a very polished look overall.
V8 power in a '60s convertible is a given, with this one being a thumping 1965 date-coded 425 cubic inch V8 powerplant properly dressed in Oldsmobile Gold paint. Obviously there's a lot of money being spent here, and upgrades include an Edelbrock carburetor and Performer SSC intake that make tuning easy and probably add a few horsepower, too. There's also a big new aluminum radiator up front, and power steering and brakes are part of the Oldsmobile package. The engine bay is very nicely detailed with lots of new equipment and chrome, so you'll want to pop the hood every chance you get. The TH350 3-speed automatic transmission shifts nicely and links to the original rear end, making for a reliable powertrain that doesn't mind that healthy big block up front. The dual exhaust system has a mellow tone that suits the car perfectly, and it sits on classic chrome Cragar wheels and 235/60/15 Goodyear radials.
If you've read this far, you're probably already too late; someone has snatched this car up after seeing what an incredible bargain it represents. Or maybe you'll get lucky, just give us a call!
