1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Convertible

For consignment, a 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass convertible in very nice condition. Nice paint, good chrome, a rebuilt engine and transmission, 4 wheel disc brakes and some go-fast goodies under the hood make this rocket of an Olds ready to shoot for the moon.


Straight steel side panels, and trunk and hood with consistent gaps and covered in a Burgundy Mist respray, there are very few faults to be noted here. Certainly not perfect, but amazingly preserved for a 21 year old paint job. A white canvas top covers the passenger compartment and is in good condition and has been fitted with a glass rear window. Up front a split grille is flanked by dual headlights on either side, and a large chrome bumper below. All is nice and tight and in good alignment with no rust or fading on chrome. The white canvas roof sweeps down to meet the trunk lid and bright shiny polishing trimmings surround the windshield as well as the passenger compartment. Bringing up the curved to a point rear, is a wrap-around bumper that has the taillights embedded within it. On all 4 corners are Oldsmobile Super Stock II chrome wheels with raised white letter BF Goodrich rubber.


Opening one of the doors we are greeted by very nice textured white vinyl with embossed panels and a small amount of thin nice chrome accents, window cranks, and black carpeting below. Slipping inside we get behind the original wheel atop a new tilt column which fronts a very clean and original dash. This presents to us in black and is loaded with plenty of wood appliquΓ© for the gauge cluster. Below and to the right of the cluster is more applique for the heat and AC, and centrally located in the dash is an AM/FM radio with the working original 8 track player below, meanwhile, in front of the passenger we see a glove box. All aligned perfectly. Fronting this dash are crisp and clean white bucket seats which are tuck and roll white vinyl with an applique topped black plastic console that holds the ball topped shifter racing in between the pair. The back has a matching rear bench that appears to never have been sat in and these all float in a sea of black carpeting. A shout out to the trunk with gray carpeted mat and full size spare tire. Sit back and turn on the AM/FM radio and breathe in the 1970 design you are now surrounded by!


The original and rebuilt 350ci V8 sits between the fenders and has been fitted with aluminum cylinder heads, an Edelbrock intake manifold and an Edelbrock 4bbl carburetor. A rebuilt TH350 3-speed automatic transmission behind, sits in a nicely patina and chrome finished engine bay. Handling the tire turning is a 10 bolt rear axle weighing in with 3.08 gearing and having been fitted with a W-27 aluminum differential cover.


Nice and straight with some undercoating and a bit of surface rust on the axle and suspension parts, but the frame is strong and sturdy. Independent coil springs for the front and a 4 link with coil springs is on back. Power disc brakes grace all 4 corners and headers send spent fossils to the rear of the car through a pair of Flowmaster mufflers.


She fired right up and ran like a champ on the test track. Smooth shifting and good solid quick stop braking is the norm for this car as is capable handling and wonderful acceleration. I took the liberty of having my tenure behind the wheel in top down guise and franky the only thing that could have made this drive perfect would have been if the AC was in operation, our consignor states that the system may need a charge. Otherwise a wonderful driver.

An extremely nice example from the year 1970. Cared for and garaged and tended to as needed. A beautiful white color inside and eye-catching burgundy for the exterior, with all surfaces in very nice condition. A well-preserved example, nearly like a new penny, turn the key and start enjoying 1970 all over again.
