Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme
This is a very solid and attractive automobile, white exterior with gold interior. Attracts very positive attention whenever I drive it. The car was purchased new by my father's cousin in 1969 and was her only car until she passed away in her mid-eighties, a couple of years ago. We have the order sheet she completed with the dealer - Palmer Chevrolet/Oldsmobile in Ocean City, New Jersey. This car was her pride and joy and was always garaged. The odometer reads 93,000 miles. We have about 75% of the records for the car and they indicate the mileage is probably higher. The car runs great and pulls really hard. the transmission shifts strongly. Sis took very good care of the car. The records show regular maintenance as well as records of parts purchased to keep up the car's appearance. The car is very clean inside and out. It is a solid number 3. You can drive and enjoy as is or restore it. Look at the pictures.
I believe the Cutlass Supreme became a notch-back after 1969 but this is a "Holiday Coupe" fastback body. The Supreme came with upgraded trim, courtesy lights, including the mirror map-light (which works). Engine is a 350 CID with factory 2bbl. carb. (burns regular gas). According to the order sheet she took a $38.00 credit to delete the standard issue high-output 4bbl. carb engine. Oh well - at least its factory original. This was Sis' only car and she drove it regularly. She had minor rust fixed a couple of times and had it repainted a few years ago. I believe she had the seats redone and the headliner replaced. When I acquired the car it had not been driven for a couple of years due to her declining health.
I spent the last two years doing a cosmetic and minor mechanical rehabilitation. We gave it a tune-up, new plug wires, battery, filters, thermostat, hoses and rebuilt the carburetor. New front brakes. Everything works. Many new parts were used to detail the car (window seals, trunk mat, hood pad, floor mats, dash shell, etc.). It has new tires and a used set of Super Stock II style wheels (original hubcaps go with the car). Sis also had a couple of fender benders (repaired) and accumulated some new exterior trim pieces which we installed. It has new front and rear bumpers. Also new grille, headlight bezels, and front marker lamps. I had some welding repairs done to the frame below the battery tray and the passenger side flooring. The car presents very well but is definitely not cosmetically perfect. The rockers show evidence of rust repairs and paint is bubbled at the right, rear wheel-well. Some cracks are visible in the paint. The windshield has a 2-inch crack near the base. It could benefit from a front end rebuild and new shocks.
This car is a real head turner. A good driver with an interesting history. Ready to enjoy this summer - and then you can tinker with it next winter! Serious inquiries only please.
