1969 Oldsmobile Cutlass 455 S (Corey)
Last updated Nov 17, 2010
"New" addition to the family. You don't see these for sale or on the road very often over here, at least not with the larger 455 engine, so after seeing the sale add and some time of deep consideration, I decided to go and check the car out. I got a good deal on it so in the spring it will be mine.
Since I've never liked much of the look of the '68 442 and F-85 body styles, I was surprised how good this '69 Cutty looked. I really like the cars classic (semi-)fastback look and the vertical taillights are also a nice little detail.
The engine ran and sounded great and was in excellent condition, and even though I wasn't able to take the car for a test spin yet because of the amount of snow outside, with the recent mods, it can't be too bad.
Only thing I didn't like about the car is the original blue interior which doesn't match with the cars black/bronze paint job.
*Sold to make room for another project car.*
