1963 Oldsmobile Cutlass
Car for sale by Carroll St Auto & Collectibles in Manchester, New Hampshire 03102
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
A restyle for 1963 gave the car a more substantial look as well as 10 more horsepower (if the car was optioned with an automatic transmission). Thanks largely to that aluminum engine (considerably lighter than the more typical iron construction of the time) the F-85 Cutlass was a an impressively light car for its size, tipping the scales at just 2,618 pounds.
Here we have a gorgeous 1963 F-85 Cutlass convertible that has been restored to original condition. The color scheme of Saddle Mist with a tan top and saddle interior is stunning. The body panels are straight with even panel gaps and the doors shut with a satisfying click. The underside and trunk floor are both impressively solid while the various chrome and stainless trim looks great. Two sets of fender skirts, chrome and painted, are included. Inside, the handsome interior is likewise stunning and could be original given the correct colors and upholstery style.
Pop the hood and youll see that aluminum V8 in all its glory. This special engine is dressed up with chrome, Oldsmobile logo valve covers along with a chrome air filter lid. One turn of the key fires it up and it idles and runs smoothly, with plenty of pep thanks to, as Oldsmobile proudly proclaimed, its "ultra-high compression" of 10.75 to 1. The automatic shifts smoothly as well and overall the car runs and drives great.
