History:


New at this. I am now 6 months into project.

Had my grandson in car and he loves it. He actually thinks that it is a race car.

It needs some body work on the fenders, but before I can get it done I need to save some money.

Additional Facts:

The Oldsmobile Cutlass was a very successful line of vehicles produced by the Oldsmobile division of GM. The Cutlass started out as an unibody compact automobile, yet it was most successful as an intermediate body-on-frame vehicle.

First introduced in 1964, the first-generation lasted until 1967.

The Cutlass was completely restyled for the second generation (1968 – 1972) with the 2-door coupe wheelbases being shortened to 112 inches (2,845 mm) and the 4-door sedans and station wagons lengthened by one inch to 116 in (2,946 mm) and also the glass-roof Vista Cruiser wagons which were lengthened even more to 121-inch (3,100 mm) wheelbase).

A minor facelift was applied to the 1969 models which consisted of vertical taillights and a new split grille. With the exception of a new 3-speed Turbo Hydra-matic 350 Engine which replaced the 2-speed Jetaway automatic engine, engine options remained unchanged from those available for the 68’s.

Headrests became standard equipment as per the new federal safety mandate and the ignition switch was installed on the steering column as opposed to the instrument panel enabling it to also function as a steering wheel lock. This ignition/steering wheel interlock was mandated by the federal government for all the 1970 models, so GM implemented this safety feature one year ahead of the government mandate.

For 1970 and 1971, the Cutlass Supreme convertible and coupe could be ordered with a high performance SX package (Code Y-79). Several versions of the 455 cubic-inch Rocket V8 could be specified within the “SX” option.

The L75 455 and the M20 4-speed transmission were available only in 1972 for the Cutlass Supreme hardtop and only a total of 77 of these vehicles were produced. 1972 was the final year in which Olds offered the Cutlass Supreme convertible and it was also the last year of the second-generation.

The Oldsmobile Cutlass lived on for three more generations (1973 – 1977) and (1978 – 1988) coming to an end in 1997 the end of the fifth-generation.

Side picture of the 1971 Cutlass Supreme. Not a great picture considering that the front is partially hidden and the rear is also somewhat hidden. This classic looks great on this picture even though there is a bit of rust showing on the fenders according to the owner. Click on the Pic to enlarge.
