1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme/442 Paint Code 65 Flame Orange selling at “No Reserve” If you have been looking for that classic muscle car investment to restore over the cold winter months then this rare Classic Muscle Car Convertible just may be exactly what you have been looking for. When this convertible was new this was not your Father’s Oldsmobile unless he were the cool Dad on the block. I don’t know of any guys out there that wouldn’t love a Flame Orange 442 convertible.
This particular model was factory ordered with many more options than your average Oldsmobile convertible back in those days. The seller I purchased this car from told me that the mileage is correct at a mere 88,511 original miles. I always look at the wear on a brake pedal and by the looks of the brake pedal pad I do believe that the mileage is original.
The quarter panels can use some work, but all four wheel opening moldings are still on the car. This is an original power window car, but before I made this purchase someone had swapped out the doors from another car. The swapped out doors on the car were originally blue, but were red when I made the purchase.
The OldsFaqs website made the statement that there is no such thing as a fake 442 in 1972. All 1972 442 convertible models started life as a Cutlass Supreme, since the 442 was an ordered option. Whether a Cutlass Supreme Convertible was factory ordered as a 442, or dealer installed, or a private owner installed all the 442 options, they are all considered Cutlass Supreme or Cutlass S bodies.
