We want to start a new series of posts here on cartips.com called way back Wednesday… and you guessed it, it’s going to be on Wednesdays.
We’re going to dredge up old cars from the past and take a look at how far we’ve come.
To kick things off as the name suggests we’re going to take a look at the Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme.
Oldsmobile isn’t around anymore, but you can still find a ton of their cars on the road.
Because they made some kick ass cars! Sure once we hit the 90’s the value you’d get from an “Olds” dropped significantly, but from the 60s straight through to the late 80s Olds made some quality cars… and I’ve owned two of them.
Back in the 60s, almost all “family sedan” type cars came with a V8, and the Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme was no different. This beauty came in either 4 door hard top, two door coupe, or a 2 door convertible, sported a 4 speed manual or a 2 or 3 speed automatic, and a 330 cubic inch Oldsmobile V8.
The original sticker price? Only $2,713
I’ve personally owned both a 1966 Oldsmobile Cutlass and an 1985 Olds Cutlass Supreme… in fact, the title photo for this post is a photo of my 1966 Olds Cutlass.
Here are some photos from the Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme’s hayday:
