1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme
1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme
It started automotive life innocently enough in 1961. An upscale model within a new line of compacts designed–in part–to stem the rising tide of cheap, economical imports, while stealing sales away from Rambler. Not coincidentally, production of excessively large, mid-priced cars had been floundering since the late Fifties. But this humble start for Oldsmobile's Cutlass belied its eventual impact; the badge had longevity on its side, becoming the most popular car in America in the process. Its secret recipe for success was an open book for decades: Put simply, it was the biggest bang for the buck, in the right size, with a face that everybody loved.
Named after the familiar short curved blade sword used by swashbuckling sailors, this Cutlass in 1992 form comes to us in excellent condition. Plenty of new parts recently put into it and recent mechanical work brings her up to snuff. Not your father's Oldsmobile, it's a 2 door Cutlass Supreme.
Bathed in screaming aqua, all panels are straight and true. The rounded front of the car looks much like scowling eyebrows for the hood as they overhang the rectangular headlights tucked just above the neoprene body matching bumper. This bumper has horizontal ribs within its design, and these ribs carry the entire circumference of the car residing just above the rockers on either side, and through the rear bumper. Gaps are nicely minded, safety glass has black surrounds, and a nice panoramic B pillar window offers up plenty of wide vista viewing as the world goes by in the rear bench. On the back large tail lighting resides on each corner and flanks a nice sized trunk. Paint overall is very good, and some snappy 5 lug wheel coverings are on all 4 corners.
A swing of the doors and we see expertly molded plastic and vinyl in dark gray, which is a nice contrast to the exterior aqua making up the tops of the door panels. On the bottom is dark gray carpeting, and within are controls for power locks, windows and a side view mirror joystick and shiny door actuating handle. A bit of paint chip off is noted on the driver's door near the jamb. Inside high-backed styled bucket seats in pristine broadcloth velour are flanking a center console, also in gray. A gray broadcloth velour rear bench is behind the buckets and is fairly easily accessible for the passengers that are destined to sit there. Upfront the original analog gauge black dash with instrument inset in front of the wheel, and controls in the center in rectangular boxes is the mantra for this dash. We note a mere 58,325 original miles on this vehicle. No cracks, runs drips or errors for the dash top also in dark gray. Gray carpeting does a clean sweep through the interior and above a gray headliner is nice and tight.
Under the hood is unrestored although clean with some dust and dirt but no rust 3.1 liter V6 mill. It has multiport EFI and a TH440-T4 4-speed automatic transmission. A 3.33 final drive is on this model.
Underneath straight rust-free steel stamped floor pans and solid unibody construction abound. No rust, just aqua factory overspray and organized brake fluid lines along with the exhaust keep things very simple. Independent front and independent with copies-rung suspension in back provide the ride, and power disc brakes are all around.
With plenty of recent service description documents, this car started quickly and off to the test track in a flash where it performed like a blue, (uhhh ummmm AQUA), streak! Solid braking which was bias free, good handling and a comfy broadcloth interior with all working accessories which is a good thing.
The consignor cared enough about this vehicle to make sure it was in tip top shape prior to its arrival and taking up residence in our hallowed halls. Now here for the taking, a true Oldsmobile and a new REO so you can pass it on to your grandson!
