I don't know why I labeled it 1967. 1976. Fat fingers I guess.

I saw the title and got really curious! I went ahead and made the edit. Nice restoration project.

Paint being buffed out. Bumpers and other chrome. Still waiting on front grill. Time to assemble bumpers. Insides sand blasted and powder coated. Bad photo of car I know. I'll get better photo with camera and not phone some time:

Bumpers done, working on filler. The rubber on the front bumperets are kind of rough so I will probably 3D print those.Image titleImage title

Bumpers help. Need to work on T-Top seals. No one makes the correct one. I have 3d printed some trim pieces and have a plan to put something together.Image title

Absolutely beautiful car! I just joined the site today and was looking through some of the recent posts. I was born in 68 and my earliest memories of cars are from the early to mid 70’s. My grandfather owned a 75 cutlass very similar to yours. I don’t have a lot of knowledge about the Cutlass beyond 72 (and not a tonof knowledge for 72 and earlier) but have always loved the body style from the 60’sall the way through the late 80’s. I imagine the 455 is pretty rare for 76 (I’m just making the assumption it’s original) and I love the paint work you’ve done! Is that the original color combination and/or design?
