Cutlass Supreme Brougham
ONE-FAMILY OWNED CUTLASS, ALL-ORIGINAL, WELL-PRESERVED, 62K ACTUAL MILES!!
Perhaps it's because there are no more Oldsmobiles being built, but the list of future collectibles will surely include cars like this 62k actual mileage, one-family owned 1985 Cutlass Supreme Brougham. From new, these cars have enjoyed a cult following, perhaps due to their classic yet sporty styling, large dose of luxury, and effortless road manners.
As is the case with many old cars, people didn't treat these like anything special when they were new, and as a result, finding a clean one like this Olds can be a challenge. Fortunately, it hails from a warm, dry climate and shows off its fantastic condition with shiny white gray paint and bright red pinstripes. There's no evidence of rust or panel patching, and those wide, heavy doors open and close as easily today as they did 30 years ago. The angular styling has aged quite well, and with the 1985 updates such as the fine-mesh grilles and chrome headlight bezels, it enjoys a semi-performance look that was a hallmark of Oldsmobile in its glory days. The chrome bumpers still look fantastic, showing no evidence that this car was "parked by feel" by an elderly owner, and all the bright stainless trim shines up nicely. And we have to admit that we like the lack of a padded roof, which makes it look a lot more contemporary and a lot less geriatric.
Inside, it's pure Oldsmobile luxury thanks to a wide split bench seat and lots of legroom. With standard burgundy GM mouse fur upholstery, it remains in excellent condition with no rips or tears and very few signs of UV damage, which is rare in any car with red upholstery. In fact, the back seat looks virtually new and the carpets and door panels have been carefully preserved by a conscientious owner. Wood accents warm up the all-gray interior, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel combines with a ton of power accessories to offer a luxurious experience. Factory A/C, a tilt wheel, power windows and locks, and a rear defroster are also included, with the original AM/FM radio still pulling duty in the center stack. A standard Oldsmobile instrument panel monitors the basics of speed and fuel level, and the 62,335 miles shown are indeed authentic. One of the hallmarks of a full-sized luxury car is trunk space, and the cargo bay on this one is very nicely kept and still carries its original space-saver spare and jack assembly.
Power comes from the corporate 3.8 liter V6, which is both unobtrusive and effective in its role aboard the Cutlass. Smooth and torquey, it gives the car great road manners, and thanks to years of development, cruises in virtual silence at any speed. The engine bay is extremely clean, more evidence of a good life with a caring owner, and it has not been modified save for a dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers that give it a great voice. The A/C still uses good old R12 refrigerant for maximum effectiveness, and all the factory equipment, including the air cleaner, is fully intact, which is always a good sign. The chassis and floors are clean, with no signs of life in the rust belt and the 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission delivers surprising fuel economy on the open road. Body-colored Oldsmobile Rallye II wheels add to its sporty countenance, especially with 14-inch BFGoodrich blackwall radials on board.
