This â€™72 Olds Cutlass has zero miles since itâ€™s frame-off restoration. Every bolt & nut has either been replaced or refinished. The odometer shows the 99k original miles prior to disassembly. The Cutlass retains all itâ€™s original rust-free body panels, other than the only General Motors approved OAI W-25 hood made by Troy Thornton. I have invested over $50k cash in this car, not to mention the labor cost. The buyer will not be disappointed with this car and the quality of the restoration.
