Based on a handsome second-generation Oldsmobile Cutlass, this restored and tastefully modified convertible from 1970 has been transformed into a striking and luxurious pro-touring muscle car. Shaved emblems and moldings enhance the clean lines of the laser-straight body, featuring a wet-sanded Chrysler 300 Cool Vanilla finish, topped with classic black 442-style hood and rear-deck stripes. New chrome, a top-quality Haartz cloth convertible top, a Pearl White top boot, 20-inch five-spoke KMC rims, and new rubber complete the exterior package.

The rebuilt “Rocket” 350 V-8 breathes through a new Flowmaster dual exhaust system and is mated to a rebuilt THM 350 automatic transmission. Hotchkis suspension components, including front and rear anti-sway bars and rear lower control arms provide superior handling, along with a new set of front and rear shocks. Braking is upgraded with new SSBC 2-piston front calipers.

The interior is trimmed in new Pearl White seat covers from Year One and equipped with front bucket seats, an Oldsmobile centre console, a solid wood-rimmed steering wheel, new white-faced Dolphin gauges, and a high-end custom JL Audio stereo system. Billet Specialties window cranks complete the interior details.

A complete and integrated package combining the best classic and modern features, this 1970 Cutlass pro-touring convertible has travelled only an approximate 5,100 miles since completion and benefits from excellent care. It shows and performs great with the right sound, the right stance, and captures attention wherever it goes. As the commercial used to say, “Oldsmobile…Escape from the Ordinary!”
