Andy Crotts '71 Cutlass
This is my '71 Cutlass. It belonged to a friend of mine several years
ago. It was originally a 350 2bbl car, no options except for air
conditioning and an 8-track.
It was originally gold, but he wanted to
paint it a color that would stand out, so he had it painted the '70
Dodge "sublime " color you see. Well he got married and his wife said
she refused to ride in such a "green" car, so one man's misfortune turns
into another man's gain. I got the car for $1,400! That included new
paint, complete new brakes, new turbo-350, and new exhaust, new p245/60R
14's...Thank you Christie, If you hadn't hated the sight of this car, no
telling what I might be driving.
I wasn't happy with the 350, and
another friend had a '71 Delta 88, 455 that needed rebuilt, so I got
started. I started with a .030 over bore job, 10.25/1 pistons, high
volume oil pump, Mondello cam, 488/496 lift, roller rockers, double
roller timing chain, W/Z exhaust manifolds, 2 1/2 inch exhaust, with 3
The carb. was rebuilt by the Holley rebuild shop,
and I found a 3.42,Olds, 10 bolt, posi. rear end. The car is daily
driven, I can't have a car like this and not drive it. I also added a
rear wing and new chrome cut out bumper and a rechromed front bumper. I
love this car. I just bought a '79 H/O and hope to send it to the car
show soon. Send me e-mail if you want to talk Oldsmobiles.
