Ad Description
Up for sale is a real head turner classic car. We have a 1970 Olds Cutlass convertible. All original and runs excellent. The interior is in immaculate shape and the exterior matches. Runs amazing. The top is original so it would need to be replaced as the back window is missing and it is ripped in spots. The price is listed well below what other cars in this condition are selling for so jump on this one of a kind classic today before it is too late. Calls only please

Nice Cutlass. Bamboo is pretty when fresh.

Unfortunately, I ran across this ad three years too late. I may have purchased this car--the exact car I had the pleasure of driving in 1983-84. It still has one distinctive feature that allowed me to identify it: the dealer sticker on the trunk. The car was spectacular, but not original. In 1983, the car was rusted out and had to be completely rebuilt from the floor boards up. We retained the original color, Bamboo, but it was completely repainted. The convertible top is not the original; that had to be replaced in 1983, too. We added the tear-drop side mirrors and the Cutlass sport rims. We even had the AM radio repaired and reinstalled. Great car. I hated to let it go.

Joffroi, than you so much for commenting. I figured no one would see my post on a three year old ad, but I was so shocked to see the car again that I decided to write one anyway. My father was the dealer, which is why I recognized the sticker on the trunk. I still have some in a box packed away in a closet. In hindsight, I don't know why he invested so much into this car. It was in rough shape. In addition to what I mentioned, I think both rear quarter panels had to be replaced, and most of the chrome trim. Surprisingly enough, we were still able to get the quarter panels directly from GM thirteen years after the car rolled off the assembly line. The tear-drop mirrors replaced a single chrome stem on the driver's side, and the sport rims replaced hub caps. I'm a little disappointed the car was marketed as "all original" on this website. It was "original" to the extent that everything was stock, but it was completely rebuilt. I drove it during the summers of 1983 and 1984, and then we sold it at the dealer's auction in Flint, MI. As my father said, "we're in the business to sell cars, not to keep them." I think a dealer from Indiana bought it. It would be interesting to know how it made its way to Florida. Again, thank you for commenting.

Wow, thanks for posting this history about the car! Stories like this is one of the reasons I wanted to make this website. I wish I had more information about where it went next. Who knows, maybe it'll show up in another ad one day.
