We see a lot of vehicles roll through our showroom in various stages of condition, but the ones that always seem to show up in the best condition are the ones that come with only 1 owner or maybe 1-family owned. These vehicles always seem to show a ton of pride of ownership and very often aren't molested and are borderline time-capsules. Case in point, this gorgeous 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass 2 door hardtop.
What's unique is this Oldsmobile has never been offered for sale since 1972! Originally bought new in Charleston, West Virginia, This awesome car only changed hands once in 1993 when the son of the original buyer decided to take it off of his father's hands and restore it to his former glory. The beneficiary of a full frame off restoration, today this '72 is in incredible condition and received a nearly 5-year restoration that was finished in 2004.
The restoration included a full engine, tranny and rear-end overhaul. The original numbers matching engine was built with a pretty stock build beyond the addition of hardened valve seats and a mild cam. The original transmission was replaced with a TH350 and received a shift kit. The rear gear was pulled as well and replaced with a new auburn 3.73 posi and new axles. All of the mechanical work was performed by professionals in North Carolina.
The body had some minor rust in your typical spots so the owner replaced the front fenders, deck lid and patched the lower quarters. From there, the body was professionally shot in the correct Nordic Blue paint color and a new black vinyl roof was added. Take a look at the underside, you'll see this isn't your typically cut up classic car. This Olds has been baby'd its entire life and today looks incredible from the bottom side. Not to mention all new suspension was thrown on the car on both the front and rear.
Inside you'll find a brand new interior from the folks at Year one with new seat covers, new foam and an upgraded AM/FM/CD player on the dash. From the inside everything works the way it's suppose to including the ice cold A/C that has already been converted to R134 and all the gauges. You'll also see the his and her shifter, tilt wheel and new dash pad that really gives it an authentic 70's feel.
It's not too often that cars like this pop up, 1-family owned, original numbers matching engine, and extremely solid and cared for. What else could you want? Don't miss your chance to own this Classic! Call today!
