With eight cylinders, room for six and a top that goes down, this 1967 Oldsmobile Cutlass convertible is the ideal summertime cruiser. Always respected for their combination of power and style, Oldsmobiles were high quality cars that earned their reputation the hard way-by being better than the other guy. This particular '67 Cutlass ragtop is a handsome, capable machine that delivers luxury and performance in equal measure, and it's a refreshing change from the long line of Chevelles and GTOs you usually find at the local cruise night. The color is simply called Gold, which implies that the guy responsible for naming colors at GM was taking a few days off when it was Oldsmobile's turn. No matter, because gold is a staple of the Oldsmobile palette and always looks good on the unique sheetmetal curves. In 1967, the Cutlass was Oldsmobile's bread and butter line, with a wide variety of body styles, but none are as handsome as the convertible. The paint job is several years old, and was applied to straight body panels offering factory-style fit and finish. Chrome is actually very good, including the unique Oldsmobile front end treatment where a two-tier bumper helps frame the headlights and grille. A bright strip of stainless parallels the body line around the fenders, and the stainless on the windshield surround still carries a decent shine. Original emblems, including the 'CS' badges representing Cutlass Supreme, hang in their original locations on the front fender and deck lid, adding their own upscale feel to the car. The handsome Parchment interior is the ideal complement to the gold paint, and with a front bench is spacious enough to bring five of your friends with you wherever you go. Few colors are more handsome than the mid-60s GM Parchment, giving any car an upscale look, and nowhere is that more apparent than on this luxury-oriented Olds. Contrasting black carpets are also newer, and were installed when the seats were re-covered several years ago, along with a new dash pad. Oldsmobile interior designers seemed like they wanted to give everyone in the front seat something to do, so the controls are spread out across a wide expanse of dashboard. Fortunately, everything is in good condition, with easy to read gauges and a modern AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit with a hidden Sony CD player in the glove box that feeds powerful Eclipse 6x9 speakers in back. Auxiliary gauges from Sun Pro hang under the dash in the usual location, monitoring oil pressure, temperature, and voltage. The tan convertible top is older than the restoration, perhaps even original, and while it folds neatly with the touch of a button, it is starting to show its age. Or, if you're like me, you just leave the top down all the time and never worry about it again-as far as I'm concerned, the top is only for emergency use. There will be no emergencies with the 330 cubic inch V8 under the hood, however. This car was built back when General Motors allowed each division to work independently and there was very little component sharing between the brands. As a result, the Oldsmobile V8 has a unique voice, delivering very respectable performance and legendary durability thanks to their high nickel content iron blocks. All Oldsmobile small blocks are painted gold, and the Jetfire air cleaner on this one leaves no question about what kind of engine it is. Power steering and power brakes were appropriate additions to the options list, and there's a new alternator providing the electricity. The engine was rebuilt 1000 miles ago and runs extremely strong, pulling the big convertible around with effortless ease. The transmission is a 3-speed automatic, which is an upgrade over the 2-speed Jetway automatic from 1966, and the entire chassis is very clean. The dual exhaust system features stock style mufflers that sound appropriately sophisticated for an Oldsmobile, and it rolls on a set of handsome Oldsmobile Rally wheels wearing 215/70/14 Firestone Firehawk radials. Oldsmobile fans already know this is a cool car, and if you're not yet an Oldsmobile fan but are looking for a cool drop-top cruiser this summer, you could do a lot worse than this one. Few GM brands straddled the performance/luxury line as skillfully as Oldsmobile, and this one's blend of handsome good looks, full-sized comfort, and strong performance on the street makes it a great partner for the hobbyist who likes to drive his cars. All the hard work has already been done, and a few smart upgrades make it a pleasure to drive-what's not to love? Call today!
