1968 Oldsmobile Cutlass custom Additional Info:

Up for auction is my 1968 Oldsmobile Cutlass 350. This Olds has had performance and convenience additions during a father and son complete frame-off rebuild in 2004. She has had light use up to recently witha refresh service, clean, and tune up just recently finished. Under 10,000 milesare on the carsince resto-rebuild. A few parking lot dings were repaired and the whole car has been buffed-out. It looks great, runs great, and drives great and will not disappoint.

She is clean and a very fast and fun-to-drive muscle car that gets a lot of attention without being garish.

There is a full list of upgrades and work done below, but the highlights are:

  • Attractive 1968 Hurst Olds 'themed' finish, including black and silver paint scheme, under-bumper Ram air intakes, W-30 red front wheel wells, and new reproduction interior

  • Machine-balanced Oldsmobile 350 small block, with aftermarket cam, manifold, roller rockers, carburetor, headers and exhaust, and ignition. Shaved heads to make 11:1 compression

  • Modern 6-speed overdrive transmission along with a 4:33 posi-traction rear-end make it quick and fast

  • 4-wheel disc brakes and best-option retrofit control arms and sway bars all around make it composed and pretty darn fun around the corners. Car can’t decide if it is Pro-touring or Pro-street
