Description:

1968 Oldsmobile Cutlass S

With a sleek design, original V8 power, A/C interior, and that ideal vintage atmosphere, this 1968 Oldsmobile Cutlass S is a head-turning classic offered for quite a nice price. You're looking at ground zero for a styling revolution. 1968 was a new design for the Cutlass, and the sporty short-wheelbase "S" models got a swoopy Holiday Hardtop option. This was a design revolution that perfectly combined Oldsmobile's premium image with plenty of performance flair. It's arguably one of... the best classic car designs ever with the fastback profile, a hint of flying buttress, and chrome bumpers that integrate nicely into the overall design. You can see it so well on this example because it has been treated with the right respect. It was sold brand new only a few hours new from our showroom, and a half-century later, it has only averaged about 1,600 miles annually. It's this good care why the sheetmetal is so straight, and you can close the doors with authority. Plus, there have been some nice investment along the way. There was a professional respray of the factory-correct Scarlet Red to keep this looking bold, and the same goes for the upgrade to polished American racing Torq Thrust wheels. The interior is highly original and quite sharp-looking. Parchment color on the seats nicely showcase the intricate pattern. And the door panels do the same. This has plenty of room for family and friends, and you can keep them all comfortable (even when all the windows are down on this pillarless hardtop) thanks to the cold-blowing factory air conditioning. While the original AM radio is on display to keep the vintage atmosphere, your real tunes are coming from a modern AM/FM/CD stereo tucked away under the seat. So this is great for cruising all day long. Oldsmobile people know that the Olds 350 cubic-inch motor is something very special. They manufactured their own V8 engines during this era. Olds had a different construction than the more famous Chevy, and they have a terrific reputation for robustness. So it's great to see the numbers-matching motor still in place. Not only is that bright golden block original, but the two-speed automatic is belied to be as well. This has a four-barrel carburetor, dual exhaust, and likely a mild cam. That gives an extra hint of performance, but this Cutlass coupe never loses its Oldsmobile smoothness. Add in power steering and the grip of modern Kumho tires, and this is remains an easy all-around driver. The sale comes with some nice paperwork, including the original warranty card, line card, owner's manual, and other documentation. This is a bright and significant classic offered for a great price, so don't miss your chance. Call now!
