Description for Oldsmobile Cutlass 1983

Introduced to mark the 15th anniversary of the first of its kind to hit the market, this 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Hurst/Olds is just 1 of 3001 produced and marks an important time in Oldsmobile's history as a sort of "keeper of an era." At the time of its release, Detroit was moving away from the more traditional big engine, rear wheel drive cars and the venerable Cutlass brand was literally split into two distinct factions - the front wheel drive... Cierra, with its modestly-sized line of engines, and the more traditional G-type Cutlass Supreme line on which this Hurst/Olds is based. This one takes the original formula and kicks it up a notch with a built Olds 403 V8 and a whole host of other upgrades and improvements, it's better just to ask us for the list. The two-toned, black and silver paint job, scooped hood and rear spoiler are just some of the visual cues telling you this is no garden variety Cutlass. It's a sharp looking color scheme and, combined with the opera window in back and a set of retro-look wheels, it exudes plenty of mid-'80s cool. It's easy to see why Oldsmobile ran out of this special edition pretty quickly when it was offered. This '83 still shows itself off quite well with a convincing deep shine from all angles. The chrome trim around both the front and rear windshields appears very much on point and the commemorative, special edition decals still look impressive. It retains a very well-kept appearance after more than 35 years of service, with body panels that are all well-fitted and show nice uniform gaps. Take a look from the front and you'll see a pair of tinted fog lights looking back at you, another indication that this Olds is special. The sunroof is a nice feature to have, giving you the option of an open-air feel during more appealing weather. Inside, you'll find a very comfortable dark red interior. The cloth, high-backed buckets in front and bench seat in back are well-padded and there's an appreciable amount of legroom for passengers both fore and aft. The creature comforts you'd want including power seats, power windows, tilt wheel and air conditioning are all here, as well. Slide into the driver's seat and look down towards the center console and you'll see a truly inspired feature: the Hurst/Olds "Lightning Sticks" shifter. Configured unlike any other, the Lightning Sticks allow the driver to manually operate the automatic transmission, a very cool precursor to paddle shifters that would come along decades later. In front of you, you'll find a very clean and easy to read instrument cluster along with an assortment of gauges and controls that extends over to the center console. In back, the spacious trunk area is in great shape, lined with an unwrinkled and unstained expanse of carpeting bearing the commemorative Hurst/Olds insignia. In the place of the original 307 V8 you will find a built Oldsmobile 403 V8, bored .024 over, with Keith Black high compression pistons, Lunadi hydraulic roller cam, roller rockers and ported & polished heads. Fortified with a Holley 770 Ultra Street Avenger 4-barrel carb with electric choke, an Edelbrock intake manifold and valve covers and MSD ignition and a Dewitts Black Ice aluminum radiator with dual electric fans to keep it all cool. The fuel system is also EFI ready with an electric in-tank fuel pump. The transmission is a built TH200R with a 2400 stall converter and a lockup kit. The lightning rods have been rebuilt and work fabulously, and the 10 bolt rear end consists of an Eaton True-Trac diff with 3.73 gears and Mosier 28 spline rear axles. The suspension has been upgraded with a multitude of parts from UMI including tubular upper/lower front control arms, tie rod adjusters, boxed lower control arms, solid sway bars front/rear and rear control arm reinforcements, Bilstein shocks with Eibach 1" lowering springs all around, and new GM brakes all around. It rides on a set of 17 inch polished torque thrusts from Retro wheels wrapped in 235/45 in front and 275/40 radials in back. Like mentioned above, there are more details than we can list. But if you're looking for a great looking, awesome running, well-appointed mid-'80s cruiser with some bona fide collectability? Check out this 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Hurst/Olds. Call today!
