1973 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme
While quite a few competing brands were scurrying to transition to lighter cars with smaller and more fuel-efficient powerplants - in the middle of the first of two '70s era Arab oil embargos - Oldsmobile doubled down on their belief that there were still plenty of American car buyers who would hold firm to their preference for having a V8 under the hood. Not only did they opt not to downsize their well-known nameplate, they went all in - focusing their creative department on a thorough redesign. Turns out, Oldsmobile was right. Breaking out of the starting gate with exceedingly strong sales, the "new look", fourth generation Cutlass would prove to be a resounding hit. This 1973 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme offers its next owner the chance to land a part of early '70s motoring nostalgia that still cuts an impressive figure, all with straight lines and a nice shade of paint.
With its long hood, half-length vinyl top and opera windows, this Cutlass is the epitome of mid-'70s cool. Wide and commanding from the front, it looks even more so with its single headlights positioned far apart, a distinctive two-part grille sitting between them. The Cameo White paint job is a great shade for this model, showing off all the ornate body contouring these fourth generation Cutlasses featured. It's got a nice even clearcoat sitting on top of that white paint, allowing it to shine from all angles. Despite its nearly 45 years of service, you'll notice those even gaps between its body panels, indicating it's looking straight and well-fitted. In both front and back, the bumpers show no obvious signs of abuse, the badging remains intact and the glass on all sides remains impressively clear. Its stance remains in stock configuration - relatively low to the road and level.
The black vinyl interior is a great example of '70s styling. By this time, bucket seats were higher and more supportive than their predecessors, and Oldsmobile took advantage of the extra canvas that additional vinyl provided, stitching in an elaborate pattern into the seat backs. The buckets straddle a functional center console that offers some useful storage space and houses a distinctive-looking floor shifter, which sports a design more like what you would see with its manual transmission counterparts. The dash area looks good, as well, with the pad up top still looking supple and showing no tears, and harboring a set of gauges that remain still easily readable. Another cool '70s styling cue is the position of the analog clock, which sits to the extreme left of the wood-patterned dash, adjacent to the door. This Olds is also equipped with an AM/FM unit that comes with iPod connectivity, so you'll have a near endless supply of music to cruise to.
Inside the still-stock engine compartment resides this car's original matching numbers 350 V8 that stands as a reminder of Olds's decision to stick to its proverbial guns as competitors were jumping ship en masse to smaller engines. It's topped with a 4-barrel carb, bolted to a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and breathes out of a set of stock headers that lead out to dual exhausts. Stopping capability comes via power brakes at all four corners - with disc brakes in front - and power steering makes for easy navigating. This sharp looking coupe sits on a set of stock 14" Oldsmobile rims, wrapped in BFGoodrich T/A radials.
