Description

With all the hype surrounding auctions and matching numbers and collector car ""investing,"" it's easy to forget that 98% of the hobby is made up of simply nice classic cars like this 1969 Oldsmobile Cutlass S convertible. Stylish in sinister black with a top that goes down and an original V8 that sounds great, what better way to enjoy a sunny day than behind the wheel of this fast, fun, and very good looking ragtop?

General Motors got the formula right with the A-bodies, and that includes the Cutlass and its unique blend of style and performance. Proportions were exactly right, and in Oldsmobile's case, the Cutlass is simply the best-looking thing to come out of the BOP studios that year. Treated to a very nice paint job in 2007, it looks great in simple black, and it's refreshing that it wasn't turned into some kind of mutant 442 clone, but instead embraced its heritage as a beautiful Cutlass S droptop. That means no graphics, no racing stripes, just a clean, straight body with a glossy shine and a great look. It appears that this one has been well-maintained since it was completed and offers straight bodywork that highlights the flared fenders and chrome strip along the tops of the fenders. It shows some wear, of course, because it's impossible to resist a vintage drop-top on a sunny day, and this Olds is more than happy to join you on your daily commute to work as well as to the car show on Sunday. Chrome and trim are very good, including the cool headlight assemblies and awesome grille, the newer bumpers, and all the stainless was professionally buffed.

The black bucket seat interior is simply what you want to make a black car look the coolest, and it's in very nice shape with firm support on the seats and very clean OEM replacement upholstery throughout. Luxury-oriented Oldsmobiles are not a new thing, but this one offers a great combination of options that you wouldn't expect at this price, including power windows, factory A/C, a center console, and a power convertible top. The original radio is still in the factory slot in the dash, but it has been supplanted in favor of a Custom Autosound AM/FM/AUX unit that's hidden out of sight and controlled via remote. The gauges are housed in their own round pods ahead of the driver and the dash is free of cracks, while the stock steering wheel sits atop a tilt column and remains in good original condition as well. Plush black carpets look great framed by shiny door sills, and the black convertible top folds easily with the touch of a button and hides under a matching black boot. Out back, the spacious trunk offers fresh mats (including that cool Oldsmobile scripted one) and a full-sized spare in case of emergencies.

Oldsmobile's Rocket 350 was no slouch in the performance department, and the block under the hood is in fact the numbers matching unit. Topped with what appears to be the original 4-barrel Quadrajet carb, it has a very OEM look, right down to the gold engine enamel on the block and valve covers, and the black snorkeled air cleaner decorated with correct Olds Rocket 350 decals. We'd recommend a modern carburetor to fully take advantage of the burly Rocket 350, but as it sits the Olds still starts quickly and drives great, and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by how pleasant of a ride it really is. Power steering and firm power front disc brakes are welcomed options for this classic droptop, and the Flowmaster dual exhaust below produces a wonderfully subtle muscle car soundtrack. It's backed by a TH350 3-speed automatic that was rebuilt in January of 2019 and a heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end with street gearing, so it moves with authority, but cruises easily at modern highway speeds. Classic Rally SSII wheels always look awesome, with these wearing white-letter 225/70/14 BFGoodrich radials.

Complete with build receipts and owner's and service manuals, this is a clean, handsome ragtop that runs great and always delivers a good time. This car offers a lot more than its reasonable price tag would suggest. Call today!
