1967 Oldsmobile Cutlass Coupe
1967 Oldsmobile Cutlass Coupe
Oldsmobile, the General's humble technology division, definitely did its fair share to glorify the rise of Detroit. And this sweet original Cutlass is a prime example of their much lauded “bar brawler in a tuxedo” sales mentality. Yes, it could have been your grandfather's or Father's Olds, but neither of them would be fooling around in some stuffy powerless large piece of Detroit iron that is sluggish, not with this example.
Featuring a numbers-matching drivetrain, a rare Antique Pewter on Black color combination and seemingly mostly original, this Olds is one of the coolest A-Bodies around our halls of Classic Auto Mall. And if you're looking for a solid, road-ready classic that'll turn heads, and you'll not have to fuss with, then this is your cruiser to go up main street, and at a very reasonable price to get in the game.
Featuring its original paint, it has dulled to a beautiful Antique Pewter patina, which shows a few dents and dings, but overall well preserved for not having a respray. A restored black vinyl top sits above all this gracefully aged steel and sports the coolest “flying buttress” tops as it comes to rest on the rear quarters. Chrome shows some age, but is not rusted, just dulled and a little pitting thrown in for character. The bumpers imbedded into the body for a more streamlined look, have a trim piece attached on either side which runs from bow to stern, connecting the bumpers, truly original, with some uneven gaps to give it personality. Speaking of personality, chromed spoked wheels, speak loudly on all 4 corners, and are wrapped in medium white sidewall radials…Smokinn!
A split bench draped in 60's two toned gray cloth zig zag pattern, with stitched black vinyl uppers and smooth bolsters, and a bit of splashy chrome trim to boot, and we are firmly planted in late 60's GM design. Speaking of this design, a glance at the dash, in its black and brushed stainless simplicity, has the original radio and simple controls all there and functioning. Upholstery shows a few stains and scuff marks but is in overall good original condition. All this floats in a sea of black carpeting below, and a tight vinyl headliner above.
Appearing restored to original factory gold block and valve covers, a decal emblazoned air cleaner sporting Jet Fire verbiage, covers this 330ci V8 which is believed to be the original power plant. A 2-speed Jetaway (don't you just love these midcentury jet age names?!) automatic graces the rear of the engine. Supple rubber hoses and clean clamps suggest that it has been kept up on the maintenance front.
Surface rust and a bit of invasive rust in areas can be noted. Floorpans are good, frame shows some surface rust, and rockers have rust as well. All original underneath with the factory rustproofing, and power drum brakes all around.
Wonderful dulled patina, some preserved interior, a bit of rust where one would expect it underneath, and a very nice power plant, this time capsule can take you back in time to an era where we were shooting for the moon, in social upheaval, and going through our growing pains as a country. GM found its stride in this preserved example of your Father's Oldsmobile, now follow in his footsteps.
