1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Station Wagon Additional Info:

For decades the trusty station wagon wasn't just a means of transportation, but rather a touchstone on wheels for scores of American families, ushering them to outings both near and far while offering seating accommodations along with plenty of room in back. Over the years, this specialized niche fell by the wayside, with only antique examples to remind us of its utilitarian awesomeness, so this 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Station Wagon is a truly welcome find. It's carrying enhanced power under... its hood to add pep to its step and offers a stunning custom paint job that turns heads everywhere it goes. A set of Torque Thrust wheels pairs with a custom maroon exterior to make for a vehicle that's sure to bring its share of double takes. We rarely see traditional station wagons on the road anymore, so there's a definite novelty factor already built into the equation and this '83 debuted long after the woodgrain sided classics we're more accustomed to seeing. Its slick maroon exterior with custom airbrushed faux trim is in fantastic shape. That custom-painted 3D trim runs from stem to stern and this one remains very level as it passes from fender to doors to rear quarter panel. With its assortment of chrome and tinted cabin glass still looking sharp and both the front and rear bumpers unblemished, this Cutty is a vital looking representative of a niche you won't likely see again anytime soon. The added roof ridges and cowl hood with dual stripes are about the only deviation from stock in view, and custom touches like that are huge giveaway that this Cutty is something truly special. Climb in and you'll likely be impressed at how tidy and fresh the brown interior still is. Both the front and rear bench seats are surprisingly clean, showing no pronounced wear or discoloration and still carrying plenty of padding to make longer treks comfortable. The carpet lining the floor below is plush, the door panels are clean, and while you can see subtle signs of both use and the passing years here and there inside, it's far less than what you'd likely expect. With two full rows of seating and some serious rear storage space to work with, this wagon is more than a mere novelty - it's a very practical vehicle that's come through the decades in unusually strong fashion. The factory gauges recessed inside the original instrument panel are still easily readable and have been augmented with several auxiliary units, including a pillar-mounted tachometer. Options include power windows and locks, cruise control, a tilt wheel, and a modern JVC AM/FM/CD/AUX head unit in stalled in the dash. Out back, the cargo area provides plenty of space, but you already knew that, because this is a wagon after all. Raise the hood and you'll see that the engine compartment looks neat and well-maintained. A powerful big block 455 cubic inch V8 was swapped in, and it's nicely dressed out in a chrome air cleaner and light blue valve covers and is surrounded by fresh hoses and wiring. It's armed with a 4-barrel carb and sends a nice deep exhaust note out of its Flowmaster mufflers - a pleasing sound you don't normally associate with station wagons. Behind the engine is a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive that's shifting in top form to round out a very solid drivetrain. Power steering makes this substantial vehicle easy to maneuver, while power brakes that position discs up front bring it to a stop in short order as needed as it transports people and cargo alike on its 15-inch American Racing Torque Thrust wheels that have been wrapped in 205/55/15 front and 245/60/15 rear BFGoodrich blackwall radials. This 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Station Wagon represents a bona fide slice of Americana that's been turned up to 11. It's rare that we come across classics this cool. Call today!
