455 BIG BLOCK V8, AUTO, BUCKETS, COLD A/C, POWER TOP, REALLY NICE SLEEPER OLDS!

GM's styling department was hitting on all eight cylinders in 1970, and this Oldsmobile Cutlass convertible is a great example of some of their finest work. With a powerful 455 under the hood, this convertible is a veritable sleeper that moves like a 442 but keeps everything under wraps.

Someone spent a pile of money getting this bright blue ragtop into top condition. All the body panels are factory-issue and thanks to his careful workmanship, they are incredibly straight and clean. The bright blue paint is popular on Oldsmobiles of this vintage, but they resisted the urge to dress it up like a 442, just to keep everything on the down-low. That means a flat hood, simple grille up front, and dual exhaust pipes discreetly tucked up under the bumper. Of course, Oldsmobiles always look sporty, but this one keeps the massive performance under wraps, making it incredibly entertaining for the driver. The doors open and close easily, the chrome is in great condition, and all the little stuff that makes Oldsmobiles stand out has been neatly preserved. Nobody will ever argue that this isn't a great-looking car!

The black vinyl interior features new seat covers and fresh carpets, so it measures up to the standards set by the bodywork. With bucket seats and no console, this is a relatively unusual Olds, too, with an interesting confluence of options that make it stand out. All the traditional Olds design cues are there, from the burled walnut appliques on the dash and door panels, to the gauge faces with brushed stainless inserts. You'll also be happy to discover cold factory A/C, a power convertible top that looks brand new, and nothing that gives away the secret living within. The gauges are a little faded and there's no radio, but that's also why this car is so affordable. Besides, whatever this thing carried for entertainment was going to get replaced anyway, right? All the weather seals are new, so it seals up like a new car and the trunk is extremely clean so you can buy with confidence that this isn't a rust bucket.

Wearing Oldsmobile Gold paint, the thundering 455 cubic inch V8 that lives under the hood makes a profound difference in this car's personality. Small block cars are pleasant enough, but this one offers a huge whack of torque at any speed and feels far faster than most of its siblings. They wisely kept it looking pretty stock, so many folks may not even notice the change, and as an Oldsmobile, things like power steering and power brakes were standard equipment. A TH350 3-speed automatic is a faithful travelling companion, spinning a 10-bolt rear end with street-friendly gears inside. Dual exhaust featuring Flowmaster mufflers rumbles with that unique Oldsmobile sound, enough to get your attention but never annoying. The floors are fresh replacements, and it even carries factory-style spiral shocks, so aside from the engine change, this one runs and drives just like any Olds you've experienced. Oldsmobile's Rally II wheels are some of the best-looking hoops of the period, with these wearing 225/70/14 white-letter radials for just a hint of aggression.

Fun ragtops are getting more expensive every day as the top-flight muscle cars prices soar out of sight. Pick up this Olds and enjoy it without worries, because it'll always be in demand. Call today!
