1969 Oldsmobile Cutlass S
General Motors obviously did a lot right in 1969. Almost everything the company produced that year has its own fan club and remains a staple at classic car shows. If the past few months are any indicator, Oldsmobile's Cutlass is a contender in the fight for Favorite GM A-body.
For consignment a project car. Any parts that are included in this consignment are photographed for you to peruse. Condition is definitely AS/IS, and there is plenty of work left to do on this project.
With body filler applied, sanded and primed we note plenty of repairs to the steel panels. Chrome bumpers, badging, and trim work are missing in action, and currently not on this car. What parts that are accounted for reside in the trunk and some research on the aftermarket or salvage market will definitely be in order to get this car in order. The 4th Cragar wheel is included but the tire has holes in it, so we needed to get this car to move so we attached generic wheel.
In need to a total restoration, although back bench looks as though it could have a thorough detailing and you would get away with it as original and in good shape. Carpets are missing, and the front bench has a seat cover installed. Dash is a total redux again with some missing parts.
According to our engine decoder, a 350ci V8 with a single 2-barrel carburetor atop, and a 2-speed Jetaway automatic transmission is on back. A 10-bolt rear is connected to the transmission. All this is in original unrestored condition, and has some parts missing.
Mostly rust free, although some previous repairs have been made to the rocker panels directly in front of the rear wheel wells. Floor pans, and frame appear to be solid and have no surface rusting.
Our attempted test drive was a failure, as we could not get a spark for the engine to fire. It will not start on either, so we can state that this car does not currently run.
A barn find, a project car, in need of TLC, call it what you want, this car will need a patient, ambitious restorer who has a knack for obtaining parts, can do some wrenching, as well as all aspects of the restoration process. It may be worth it though, as if carefully done, and completed, these cars have brought good money with previous sales.
