Steve Wirth's '71 Cutlass S
I purchased this car in 1998 for $1400.It was in pretty good mechanical condition with 130000
miles so i assume it was rebuilt at some point in time.I wish I had gotten more info
from the buyer but now I cannot locate him.Iam currently restoring the vehicle to original
condition.the interior was redone in 1999 and I am doing the exterior in 2000.The rear quarters
were replaced, front fenders were patched with new sheet metal and the car was completely stripped
and repainted inside and out . ! changed colors from burnt orange to pearl white.This paint job has
3 coats primer,9 base coats and 3 clear coats. It is accented with gold pinstriping.Next year I
plan on rechroming bumpers and replacing single exhaust with new dynomax system.The engine I am
going to keep as original ,350 4bbl.
these are pictures of the car before and after.
PS ihave already put all the engine goodies in the other oldsmobile I am restoring a
1971 cutlass supreme 400 hp and 500ft lbs. of tourque.body work is next project for this
vehichle but parts are expensive up here in canada.
