1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme/442 "Code 25" Astro Blue Convertible W-30
This Oldsmobile is the perfect classic droptop to enjoy this spring and throughout the upcoming summer. If you have been looking for a beautiful classic convertible that you can instantly become a fan favorite at the local car shows in your area then this rare convertible may have your name on it! These 1970's muscle cars have incredible investment potential, and have been referred to as rolling bank accounts. The year 1970 was the pinnacle of the muscle car era and in most models the very most sought after year. Remember, When the top goes down the price goes up!
This convertible was stripped to bare metal and the body was painted in code 25 Astro Blue. I believe that color code was only available in 1970. When I made the purchase this body had its original paint. It was dull and faded needing a long overdue restoration after almost a half a century in existence. This car was rustproofed from the factory with Zeibart, so that's why I believe the body stayed in such good condition for being close to 50 years old. I had my local body shop remove both bumpers and the chrome before the original paint was stripped to bare metal. After the body was prepped and primed the black base coat was applied to the scoops of the ram-air hood as well as along both sides of the car for the W-30 stripes. The fineline tape was then applied for all of the W-30 stripes. After the body was painted with a full gallon of Astro Blue the fineline tape was removed, and four coats of Dupont clear coat were applied to bury the stripes under the clear coat to bring out the mirror finish as evident from the pictures.
The dual snorkel W-25 ram-air hood has the steel frame with brand new chrome twist downs. There is nothing like driving down the road looking at those twin scoops. I personally believe this hood is the best looking hood of all the hoods on any of the old muscle cars. A brand new front bumper and a brand new rear cut-out bumper were both installed with brand new 1970 442 grilles. The body received brand new 442 emblems, and brand new W-30 emblems to make this classic look like a real W-30. The dual exhaust system has a brand new pair of chrome trumpet exhaust tips running out the rear of the new cut-out rear bumper. Whenever this droptop is fired up it sounds wicked to say the least.
The Black convertible top is brand spanking new with brand new padding, and the full brand new set of rubber convertible top seal gaskets. This convertible top does have the brand new back glass window option as well. All of the convertible top components are present.
The original bucket seats were showing wear as well as the back seat. I had the front bucket seats and the rear seats professionally reupholstered. They should stay in great shape and be nice and comfortable for many years to come. The entire interior still shows in very nice condition as seen in the pictures. This car came from the factory with TILT WHEEL AND POWER WINDOWS. Who doesn't love to have those rare options in an old muscle car? Each of the power windows works from their own switch and from the master switch on the drivers door. There is an aftermarket cruise control set-up on the turn signal lever that was period correct for back in the day, but I saw no signs of any of the cruise control system under the hood to engage the cruise control. The original dash pad is in very nice shape. I saw no cracking anywhere. Even the original chrome dash surround piece is still in place. Fortunately this dash was never cut up like was typically done to these cars back in the day. The original AM radio is still present, but not hooked up, so the sound system will be left up to the winning bidder. The correct woodgrain insert for the year 1970 only on top of the console is brand new. All the other woodgrain around the interior was in good condition, so those are original. The door sills are brand new, so when you open the doors it looks sweet as you step into the car. A complete set of brand new window gaskets were installed by a professional interior shop. I tried to have everything on this body either replaced or restored.
