Description

1979 OLDS CUTLASS CALAIS T-TOPS WORKED!!!

THIS IS A CAR THAT I HAVE OWNED FOR OVER THIRTY TWO YEARS
IT IS NOW CONSIDERED AN ANTIQUE. IT HAS BEEN METICULOUSLY KEPT
AND GARAGED DURING THIS TIME PERIOD.
I BOUGHT THIS CAR BACK IN 1981 WITH 15000 MILES ON IT AND DROVE IT AS MY EVERYDAY CAR FOR ABOUT FOUR YEARS. I THEN PUT IT AWAY AND ONLY DROVE IT OCCASIONALLY ON NICE DAYS. THE 86000 MILES ARE THE ORIGINAL MILES
THIS CUTLASS WAS THE SPORTY MODELDUBBED THE CALAIS THAT CAME WITH BUCKET SEATS
FLOOR SHIFTER AND CONSOLE AND A GUAGE PACKAGE INCLUDING A TACHOMETER. IT WAS THE SAME CAR THAT OLDSMOBILE MADE THE HURST OLDS FROM.
THIS PARTICULAR CAR WAS EQUIPPED WITH A CHEVY 305 ENGINE FROM THE FACTORY, A FACTORY POSI REAR AND FACTORY DUAL EXHAUST. A
PRETTY COOL CAR IN STOCK CONDITION.
SINCE THEN IN 1995 I DECIDED TO MAKE THE CAR FASTER THAN IT ALREADY WAS. SO THE ENTIRE DRIVETRAIN HAS BEEN PROFESSIONALLY
REPLACED WITH HIGH PERFORMANCE EQUIPMENT.
HERE ARE SOME DETAILS:
THE ENGINE IS A CHEVY 350 CID V8 EQUIPPED WITH A CRANE CAM, ROLLER ROCKERS, HI RISE EDELBROCK MANIFOLD, EDELBROCK 600 CFM PERFORMANCE SERIES CARBURATOR. THE EXHAUST STARTS WITH HEDDMAN HEADERS TO TURBO MUFFLERS TO CHROME TIPPED TAILPIPES.
THE TRANSMISSION IS A TH 350 THAT HAS BEEN WORKED AND HAS A SHIFT KIT. CHIRPS SECOND GEAR!!! THE FACTORY POSI REAR NOW HAS 3.73 GEARS SO IT WILL JUMP OFF THE LINE BUT STILL DRIVE DOWN THE HIGHWAY. ALSO A MILD STALL SPEED CONVERTER FITS NICELY INTO
THIS COMBINATION. ALSO, WE PUT IN A TRIPLE CORE RADIATOR TO ASSURE THERE WOULD BE NO OVERHEATING. THIS CAR RUNS STRONG!
ALL THIS WORK WAS DONE UNDER A THOUSAND MILES AGO. I HAD THE WORK DONE IN PHILADELPHIA. SO THE CAR HAS BEEN DRIVEN FROM THERE TO THE ATLANTIC CITY AREA WHERE I RESIDE NOW. IT HAS SPENT MOST OF IT’S TIME SITTING IN THE GARAGE SO I HAVE JUST REPLACED THE BATTERY WITH A FRESH NEW INTERSTATE BATTERY. SO IT STARTS UP EVERY TIME!
THIS CUTLASS ALSO HAS SOMETHING IN IT THAT IS EXTREMELY RARE.
AN ORIGINAL HURST OLDS DUAL GATE SHIFTER AND TRIM PLATE WITH LIGHT IN BRAND NEW CONDITION! I FOUND THIS SHIFTER RIGHT AFTER I DID ALL THE WORK TO THE DRIVETRAIN. IT CAME IN THE ORIGIONAL GM BOX AND WENT RIGHT INTO THE CAR. TRY TO FIND ONE OF THESE SHIFTERS. BELIEVE ME IF IT’S NOT IN A HURST OLDS YOU WON’T.
MUSIC COMES FROM A KENWOOD AM FM CASSETTE POWERED WITH AN AMP IN THE TRUNK. NOT MUCH BY TODAY’S SOUND SYSTEMS BUT QUITE
ADEQUATE.
REMOVABLE GLASS T-TOP ROOF PANELS MAKE THIS CAR REALLY FUN TO DRIVE WHEN THE WEATHER IS NICE. THE AIR CONDITIONING UNIT HAS BEEN REMOVED FOR PERFORMANCE BUT I STILL HAVE IT SO I CAN PROVIDE IT.
TO GIVE YOU SOME KIND OF IDEA WHAT KIND OF LOVE IS IN THIS CAR,
OR YOU COULD ALSO SAY WHAT KIND OF NUT I’VE BEEN WITH IT, TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THE PICTURES. LOOK AT THE FACTORY OLDS RALLY WHEELS. THERE ARE BRAND NEW LUG NUTS AND BRAND NEW BEAUTY RIMS. I ALSO STILL HAVE THE OWNERS MANUAL AND BROCHURE FOR THE 1979 OLDSMOBILE PRODUCT LINE.
OBVIOUSLY THIS CAR HAS BEEN WITH ME FOR A LONG TIME SO IT IS VERY HARD TO PART WITH. BUT IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A CAR OF THIS TYPE YOU WILL POSITIVEY NEVER FIND ONE EQUIPPED LIKE THIS OR IN A CONDITION EVEN CLOSE TO THIS ONE!!!
GOOD LUCK BIDDING!!!
