Finished in red over a black vinyl interior, this 1966 Oldsmobile Cutlass was built in Lansing in the last week of March, 1966. The Cutlass was a solid Oklahoma car prior to restoration under the last owner’s care. Since that time, it has been a competent and very reliable driver and beloved member of the family fleet.
Eight years ago, the car was treated to a frame on restoration, which included a mechanical rebuild, bare metal respray and modern drive train. The Cutlass is equipped with power steering, power brakes, air conditioning. The car is a solid driver and comes complete with good condition original glass and a new windshield. The trim on the car has been redone as well with new chrome and straightened and polished stainless trim. The interior has been refurbished including new seat covers, a new headliner, new door panels and rebuilt gauges. Everything on the dash functions properly and the the stereo has been updated with a modern digital unit that fits in the factory location
The Cutlass is powered by a GM Performance Ram Jet 350. With a rated output of 350 hp at 5,200 rpm and 400 lb-ft at 3,500 rpm, it’s not the craziest motor that GM builds, but it will move this classic cruiser with gusto. The motor runs off of the bulletproof MEFI computer, and the 9.4:1 compression ration works great on pump gas. The motor uses a GM serpentine belt system to drive the powersteering, AC, alternator, water pump, which is much more reliable than a V belt set up.
