Description for Oldsmobile Cutlass 1968

hello my name is Robert - first off i am a ASE certified master mechani, ASE master certified in collision and pain, and diesel repair . ive been around cars for 30 years and am familiar with them all from AMC all the way to Zuk a European truck ive worked on in the past . trust me ive been around them all - im not a expert at any of them but well versed for sure . I've owned probably about 50 over these 68-72 GM A body cars from 454 Chevelle and montes to 68 -72 455 gto's, and even a few GS400s and 455s . several olds 442's as well.
Anyways here we go with the gorgeous 1968 olds w31 replica . ram rod 350 . * In the early 2000's this car was restored and still will turn heads and win awards at local car shows - it shows a bit of wear but not very much - who ever did this car did it right ! i have a 3 ring binder about 3 inches thick of receipts, picture, color selections chip, documents and such . a car that has held up this well for 16 years after being restored is a excellent sign of good work. is the car perfect ????- no is it perfect for its age - pretty damn close.the paint shows no sand scratc, the bodywork is straigh, there is no rust outside of a 3-4 tiny tiny bubbles on the etgeof the rocke, that you have to look at from multiple angles to find smaller than a pinky finger nail and no where near coming through . There is a door ding on the drivers door - about the size of a pointer finger nail - barely noticeable and no paint is chipped - The the car looks like a million dollars with the black vinyl to, the deep red pain, and black interior and gorgoues wheel and tire combination . After going through the 3" binder i found that the body work and paint work was all performed at a very reputable shop (any metal that needed rust repair was cut out and replaced with new metal ) . all the jambs where properly painted and look great(many cars have sprayed over weather-strips door latches and door hardware latch bolts - quick indicator of shotty quick work ) - this car has door and trunk jambs look proper and professional just like the exterior paint . The trim is nice on the car and the bumpers look like they have been re-chromed for sure . all the glass is in good shape as well . these are the cosmetics the guy i bough the car from gave me 2 of the 20 trophys the car has won at many car shows - he said he wanted to keep them but was nice enough to give me 2 . my grade 9 out of 10
** the interior is immaculate - the 4 speed console is just the nicest console in any muscle car ive owned - polished chrome with rocket emblem and locking console doo, gorgeous black bucket seat, door panel, perfect dash and headline, ralley pack gauges with working factory tach . i cant stress how nice the interior is . my grade 9 out of 10
**the frame and underside and trunk floor are perfect - no patch or hacked up floors - all original tight and rust free - frame is solid and in great shape with no pitting . pop the trunk and it looks like new inside on top and under the trunk floor mat .
** pop the hood and its equally impressive - the correct color (HI COMPRESSION GOLDEN ROCKET V8) stands out and looks amazing . the engine has been rebuilt to w31 specs with a more street friendly camshaft - has original ram rod #5 big valve head, hi tension valve spring, flat top piston, headers with real nice sounding dual exhaus, correct large w31 harmonic dampe, and dual inlet correct air cleaner with under bumper ducts . The engine bay is painted properly and looks super super nice - factory points distributor along with proper hose clamps . The 350 rocket in this car is a impressive runner - it runs like a real 350 rocket should run, never overheat, and always hold great oil pressure . The little w31 spec 350 will be pulling you back into the seat in every gear and shifting through a rebuilt m20 4 speed is the most fun ever! 9.5 out of 10
** 391 rear axle posi rearend with factory boxed control arms and rear anti sway bar - handling and steering effort is a breeze through the gorgeous steering wheel . brakes very goo, heater and gauges all work, lights and electric all proper and insulated . very clean wiring .
in summary - this car needs nothin, looks gorgeou, and was done right in the early 2000s . its not perfect but again its damn close - and I guarantee if you take it to local car shows it will collect many many more trophy's like it has in the past . I'm asking $31, 000- you wont find much more fun and better looks for the $$$ out there . i don't want to sell the car but I have moved to a new home and all practically all the roads are dirt stone roads and they would destroy this car - I also don't have the garage space so the car has been sitting outside which is just tough to see as well . it needs a new home and its very hard to let go but i have a Jeep in my sights .
I washed the car on one of our warmer days - still at 30 degrees the water was freezing up on me and causing me some grief . the car will detail out and look much much better if you spend a bit more time in the right weather conditions . some of the under hood insulation stuck to some ice on the core support. you can see that in 1 picture cover and pulled a but off .
I have a clear title in my nam, I have the binder along with the glovebox paperwor, and i will assist in loading the car for you or your transporter . i cant think of a lot more but please ask any questions now - i wont tolerate guys that "NIT PICK" after a purchase to try and lower the price down . I'm here to provide any other pictures or even a video of the car running etc. I sell everything AS-is no matter what it is . no refunds or any returns or bullcrap . the deposit is due in 24hr, and full pay in 7 days . no exceptions . i will immediately mail out the title once payment clears with tracking info .
