350 CID, TH350 TRANSMISSION, 10 BOLT REAR WITH 3.42 GEARS, POSI, NICE PAINT
Lots of car with a little price tag, this 1969 Oldsmobile Cutlass hardtop has a unique look and a torquey V8 that makes it a fantastic entry-level muscle car. The unusual paint, nicely appointed interior, and factory A/C certainly help, too!
Priced a Chevelle lately? This Olds does everything just as well for a lot less dough, and with the handsome neo-fastback look, it does it with a unique look. The striking medium blue paint was done just a few years ago and still looks fantastic, giving the Olds an appropriate grown-up look that suits its mission. I always like to see standard car that are permitted to be themselves instead of being dressed up as clones of their more-expensive siblings, and there's a lot of appeal in this Cutlass as it sits. You'll note that the deep shine and straight bodywork do their part to make it shine and the overall fit of the bodywork is quite good. Is it perfect? No, but you won't have any problem getting a good parking spot up front at the hottest spots in town when you show up in this Olds. The blacked-out grilles, fiberglass hood, and minimal badging will attract a lot of onlookers, too, because it's aggressive without being overbearing and there's just enough bright trim to remind everyone that Oldsmobiles were upscale cars, even the muscular ones.
The white interior with black carpets and dash looks great inside the blue bodywork and aside from a few minor upgrades, delivers an authentic Oldsmobile experience. The upholstery is in great shape and thanks to durable materials will probably last for years to come. Nice black carpets anchor the bright interior, and while almost everything inside is new, it's quite possible that the door panels are original and in very good shape. The wood-rimmed wheel warms up the interior and adds a racy flair, while the under-dash gauges enhance the rather basic factory setup, which is limited to speed and fuel levels. A factory radio still resides in the dash and looks good with its matching knobs, but for today's entertainment, there's also an AM/FM/CD head unit in its own pod beneath the dash. The trunk is surprisingly large and is finished with a simple gray mat that keeps everything tidy.
A small-block Olds is a very different animal from a small-block Chevy, and the Rocket 350 in this Cutlass makes torque just about everywhere on the tach. Fitted with a few performance-enhancing bits like an upgraded camshaft, Edelbrock intake, and a big Rochester 4-barrel carb, it makes this car feel 500 pounds lighter when you mash the throttle. The oversized open-element air cleaner was dressed with a reproduction decal and sits atop a nicely painted Oldsmobile Gold engine surrounded by a lot of new equipment. You'll note that there's a fresh alternator, a recent dual-reservoir master cylinder and power brake booster, and some new wiring. Long-tube headers connect to a fairly tame-sounding dual exhaust system, but that's really the point of an Oldsmobile, right? Power without the juvenile displays of horsepower? There's a TH350 3-speed automatic and a rugged 10-bolt rear with 3.42 gears on a Posi, so it doesn't mess around when you hit the loud pedal. Flashy chrome Torque Thrusts help it stand out and are wrapped in fat 245/60/15 BFG radials.
Go ahead, give an Oldsmobile a try. You're going to love the way it looks and once you crack the throttle, you'll forget all about the other A-bodies. Call today!
