This 1967 Oldsmobile Cutlass Convertible is equipped with a 5.2 litre eight-cylinder engine with an output of 320 hp. The previous owner states an unwarranted mileage of around 85,000 mls, the general condition of the vehicle allows for this information to be plausible.
The paintwork presents itself in gold-metallic and goes well with the interior, bearing a black leatherette trim.
Particularly noteworthy are the fully functional electric fabric top in beige, the silky smooth automatic and built-in “Flowmaster Exhaust System” all of which help make the perfect cruising experience for up to five people complete.
This real classic was imported from the US west coast to Germany, where new TÜV (9/2016) and H-appraisal reports have already been issued.
What we’ve got here is a rock-solid convertible which, according to its previous owner, holds no surprises and is definitely a rare sight on German roads.
These were – by American standards – “compact” midsize cars which came as 4-door limousines and station wagons, as well as 2-door coupés, hardtops and convertibles. On the engine side, they were equipped with the standard six-cylinder and V8 engines off the GM group shelves, never lacking in capacity – all the way up to 7.4 litres, if that’s what you asked for.
Until 1988, a total of five generations of Cutlass models were released. Later, the name became some sort of sub-brand for Oldsmobile cars of various kinds. In 1999, the name was finally dropped.
Here in Germany, well-preserved, original Cutlasses have long become exotic rarities in collectors’ hands.
