1964 Oldsmobile Cutlass F85 Convertible -
Original 330ci V8 w/Automatic Transmission - Power Top - Power Steering - Original Color Combination -
The Cutlass F85 models had a few more option boxes ticked when ordered from GM than the base Cutlass. One such option was a more powerful engine, in the form of a 'ultra-high compression' 330ci V8. This particular car is finished in the original color combination of Tahitian Yellow over black, still has the original engine under the hood, and has a number of great options. in the form of power top, power steering, and power brakes.
A Tahitian Yellow (Paint Code K) finish covering the exterior suits this car well. It is the original color of the car, although it has been repainted once at some point recently. The paint job was professionally done with care - this isn't just a quick in and out Earl Scheib paint job. The surrounding trim, and brightwork is in great condition as it gives some interest to the simple styling of this attractive, yet slightly slab-sided Cutlass. Color matched wheels with hubcaps, and white stripe tires finish off the exterior styling.
Inside this F85 is a black vinyl interior (Color Code 960) which includes bucket seats, a single bar steering wheel, original radio, a few added auxiliary gauges, and a handful of F85 badges. The dashboard features a sweeping speedometer just to the left of a perforated metal trim panel at the center of the dashboard. The power top switch is neatly installed within the metal trim panel, just above the AM radio. A plethora of trunk space is available in the rear of the car, even with a full-size spare tire in there.
“Ultra-High Compression” scrawled across the bright red air cleaner quickly catches your attention when looking under the hood. The red air cleaner sits atop a 4BBL carburetor, and just below that, the original engine assembly finished in gold sits nicely in the tidy engine bay.
This Cutlass F85 is a great package, offering a number of options and engine just a step above a base Cutlass. Add the originality of this car and the convertible, you've got an awesome classic cruiser that is sure to turn heads and spark nostalgia.
