1967 Cutlass....... another project I didn't need.

Saw this languishing on Craigslist at some guy's little independent salvage yard for 8+ months on and off. Had been asking way too much.

Decided to go look at it as I was gonna be at the LKQ nearby anyway.

The guy took my low-ball offer, said it was finally time to let it go.

It's 99% complete, un-altered. The 330 V8 looks like it'll run with fresh gas, a tune up and carb cleaning. Trans worked when parked, hoping 15 years of sitting didn't destroy it. Gas tank is FUNKY and somehow got crushed upward so I may just buy a reproduction tank, easy swap out.

Found a set of Olds Rally wheels with new tires for cheap..... The ad listed them as 15's but when I went to buy them, there were 2 15's and 2 14's. They look good on the car.

I'll get it running, see if it'll move under it's own power then send it off to become someone else's project.





Still has all 4 "T-3" headlights.



Wheels & tires mounted.

Could be fun to do a "barn find" NASCAR look to it........

Yup, you don't need that.

You must have the most understanding wife possible with all of the project vehicles you drag home.

1966 front ends look way better. The marker lights / turn signals between the headlights is just an odd look, should be in the bumper. None the less, it's a cool looking car.

What are you trying to get out of the olds? Did you get it running?

Haven't touched it. Still pre-title right now.

Well PM me a price and how difficult the title would potentially be. I know some people looking for something like this and I'll pass it on.
