Karen Hart's '72 Cutlass


Here is my 1972 Cutlass. I bought this car 6 years ago for $400. As the story goes, it was in bad shape. Below is a list of repairs/restored parts.

Fun stuff: tires/rims
all new interior( doors, floor, seats, headliner,belts)
windows tinted

Necessary stuff:

new heater core
new A.C. compresor
new chrome valve covers
weather stripping
hood release
trunk repair
new grille
new radiator

Engine work:
R&R oil pump
R&R camshaft & lifters
R&R head gasket set
R&R high performance water pump
R&R timing chain
R&R exhaust manifold, heads re-surfaced

What I really want to do next is replace both bumpers. All my friends and family think I am crazy to put money into "An older car" while they all drive new vehicals. I love my Cutlass and would'nt trade it for anything! oh yeah, it's a 4-door too......
