OMG

"PeteLeathersac" on sYc gave me a tip on a local car...........NOT A CHEVELLE!!!!!

Thanks "Pete" this came about mid meek and by mid day today my new car was in my garage. (My head is still spinning........)

I am now the proud owner of a Barn Find/Project:

1969
Model Number: 33677 Cutlass 'S' 2dr Club Coupe (Post Sedan/2 Door Post)

The colour is 57-57 Glade Green

The interior is 930 Blak Strato Bucket Seats, no console

The hood stripes were 10 Ebony Black back in day

The options are:
A51 Seat: Front Bucket
B32 Mats: Front Floor
B33 Mats: Rear Floor
B90: Molding: Door & window frame
B93: Molding Chrome door edge
FE2: Suspension system: ride and handling
G80: Raer axle: Positraction (Limited slip differential)
G92: Rear axle 3.42:1 ratio Heavy Duty
M20: transmission 4=speed manual - wide ratio
N10: Dual exhaust
P80: Tire: F78 X 14 Fiberglass belted whitewall
V02: Radiator: heavy duty
V48: Engine coolant - Increased protection (Antifreeze)
W31: W-Machine Package, Force Air Rocket 350 V8
W84: Aditional Fuel for delivery
Y73: Appearance option, Hood special paint.

The options are very cool, but that is just the beginning..........This car was purchased new locally and I became the second owner at noon today!!!!!!!!

The original owner and I are now best friends!!

The OO and his wife, daughter, and granddaughter all welcomed me to their home and sent me away with a car I will cherish. (I will check if they are willing to go public or stay private soon)

The OO sat down with the order/option book at the local dealer and ordered this car exactly as you see it here, he wanted a sleeper and even tried really hard to delete the hood stripes but was unable to. They had the car oiled and drove it one full year including winter, then for four summers he drove it(he used winter beaters to protect his W31). The car has been in his garage or storage facility literally since 1974ish.

The OO put a "Kicker Clutch" in it as well as a short straight handle on the Hurst shifter, he smiled from ear to ear as he explained how he could floor it, and pull on the shifter between gears, and KICK the clutch for a half a heartbeat to change gears

He took it to a local track at least once for time trials and his times were approx 14.2 seconds. He also put air shocks in the back and says they still hold air.

He put a Dixco(sp?)tach on the hood back in the day as he didn't want the tach from Olds as he said it was inside the clock, he called it a "tick tach". He only drilled the one hole, he didn't need to drill the extra holes for screws

When we went inside to write up a bill of sale today the family provided me with enough documentation to choke a Canadian horse!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bill of sale, POP, warranty booklet, and on and on, and on!!!!!

I am so excited to have found this car very close to home and plan to keep the family up to speed on the progress as this old girl comes back from hibernation to the road. This really is a dream come true for me, and I plan to enjoy my new car as we (Father and Son) repair and restore and bring her back to driver condition. During agonizing over this car a few nights ago my son asked if he could help work on the car........(tear)......he tipped the scales with Momma!!!!!!!!

So I guess I am an Oldsmo-vrolet guy now..........and proud of it!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ryan

PS - LOTS more pics to come!

Ryan congratulations! Love it! I spent my morning researching 1969 w31 Cutlass Supreme (I saw a 69 Cutlass Supreme on craisslist that had W31 decal on front fender. I determined it to be fake since it was a n A/c car) I understand you got a healthy cam in that 350. Not the tamer auto trans version. Awesome. Did your car come with the W31 decals on the front fenders?

I believe it should have had the W31 decals in the front fenders....unless the OO did not request them, for that sleeper look

The F85`s got the Ram Rod decal

Ryan, Well done. Congrats on your new find and F+S project. I foresee MANY special bonding moments ahead.
I assume, for the meantime, you and your son will be getting it road worthy so you can enjoy a bit of time with it before it gets torn down for the big restoration?

Congratulations Ryan...to scoop up a car like that after sitting for 40 years is a coup(e)...pun intended. I bet you know it will end up being your son's car one day. Lucky him!

I wonder what other cars Pete know about that are lurking and waiting for the right buyer?

Wow congrats. I dream of finding a car like that one day but being in little old New Zealand its a little hard to get immersed in what may or may not be available. You are a very lucky guy and I hope you and your son really enjoy your time together on this great post sedan. I am very envious. Mark

WOW!!! Congrats Ryan!!! Way cool!!!! I'm here to help, Bro. PM me or call anytime with questions or needs. Very happy for you, my friend. Great to have another Olds guy In the mix. Please call or ask before jumping in with feet.........some of the Oldsmobile stuff can be finicky and hard to find. The Olds guys are a great group and we all kinda know and look out for each other. Again, congrats and glad to help anytime.

 The original owner had the car painted early inlife, painted over the black hood stripes and the fender w31 emblems.

He gave me two NOS W31 emblems with the documentation file
