1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme/442 Paint Code 65 Flame Orange Convertible selling at “No Reserve” on a quick 5-day auction If you have been looking for that classic muscle car investment to restore then this rare classic muscle car convertible may be exactly what you’ve been looking for. When this convertible was new this was not your Father’s Oldsmobile unless you had the cool Dad on the block. I don’t know of any guys out there that wouldn’t love a Flame Orange 442 convertible.
There is a new fuel pump and this Rocket engine fires right up with an electronic ignition. That upgrade is typically a welcome addition after the point set-up is removed. I never cared for Edelbrock carbs, so I would suggest a nice original Quadrajet for a replacement.
The heater blower motor control panel works on all 3 speeds. A brand new ignition was installed by the previous owner, so two brand new ignition keys come with the car. The interior looks to be all original, and in nice condition as seen in the pictures.
I didn’t have time to work on them to line them up correctly, but the hood does latch down tight with the primary latch for shipping. The 442 grille’s are original factory 1972 genuine GM grille’s. The convertible top does work from the switch in the dash, and I was able to put the top down and get it back up, but I believe the top motor will need some more fluid to go up and down fast.
