What we've got here is a driver with some style. On the showroom floor now is this stately 1969 Oldsmobile Cutlass, with older green paint and an extremely clean interior. The 1969 Cutlass was one of America's best selling cars, being available in several different body styles. In 1968, the Cutlass received an extensive restyle featuring all-new sheet metal and a semi-fastback roofline. The 1969 F-85/Cutlass models received only minor trim changes from their '68 counterparts, namely a signature split grille with vertical bars and vertical taillights. Headrests became standard equipment and the ignition switch moved from the instrument panel to the steering column. This example is powered by a standard 350 C.I. V8 breathing through a 2-barrel carburetor, perfect for cruising. Torque from that 350 is delivered to the rear end through a 3-speed automatic transmission shifted on the column, good for seamless and smooth shifting. The exterior green paint with white pinstriping is older but is sure to turn heads up and down the block. The interior looks equally fantastic, being mostly-original and also extremely clean. The white vinyl bench seats compliment the exterior white pinstriping nicely! Options on this beautiful '69 Olds include power steering, air conditioning, a factory AM pushbutton radio, a heater + defroster, seatbelts, and a nice-sounding single exhaust system. The car rides on some chrome Oldsmobile factory-style wheels paired to a classic set of B.F. Goodrich RWL tires for a period-correct look. The Cutlass was a staple of American highways for decades, and this 1969 model harkens back to a time where you couldn't miss one looking up and down the street. With a big 350 C.I. V8 and a column-shifted automatic, this Cutlass runs and drives even better than it looks. Behind the wheel, it's easy to see why the 1969 Cutlass was one of America's best selling cars. If you'd like to step inside a real time capsule of a car, then we think we've got what you're looking for right here.
