1962 Oldsmobile Cutlass F85 Post Sedan

I am excited to present this rare and unique 1962 Oldsmobile Cultass F85. Most have never ever seen one of these Oldsmobiles up close and personal.....this is one super cool eary Muscle Car. Below is a very honest description of the car.  I have done some recent upgrades to the car.....only to improve the looks and performance.

If anyone is interested in seeing this car in person.....I will be happy to arrange a viewing. The car is located in the Chicago Suburbs.

I guarantee you will be the only car guy at any given car show with a car such as this

Feel free to contact me at....(630) 699-5578

PRICE $19.5K OBO

GM's upscale compact the 1962 Oldsmobile Cutlass F85, one of the most technologically-advanced engines of the 60's, 215 cubic inch all-aluminum V8. Options include: positraction, power windows, air conditioning (needs to be put back in the engine compartment), original 4 speed T-10 transmission. The 4-sp is very scarce and desirable, because it had only a two month production run for the 1962 Model and it is a lot better than the normal lame automatic.  I think the car has been painted once, the innards (door jambs trunk, etc) look to be all original paint. The car runs fantastic, a small car, but offers big car comfort and performance on the highway. Good history behind this car, I bought it from a man that told me he bought from the original owner in Florida.

Body:

The car is a solid Florida car, very clean underbody. All the trim is there and in good condition. The paint looks good but has minor chips and scratches. Floors and trunk look great and are rust free and solid, the original positraction trunk label?  Very minor rust spots on the bottom of the wheel wells.

 Interior:

The interior is unrestored completely original, except replacement carpets, protected by aftermarket floor mats, and despite being a "compact" there's plenty of room for everyone. 4 new 14"  tires. Factory Tach gauge on the Factory Console works perfectly. All power windows, the Original Radio was converted to AM-FM with an iPod plug in the box by S&M Electro-Tech and Alpine amp and speakers. An electric antenna. A set of 60's style chrome add-on gauges, all work. A full size set of extra wheel covers and two extra factory tachs.

Engine:

Dan LaGrou of D&D spent 23 years in engine and chassis development at General Motors specializing in aluminum engines before he started D&D. The engine has been balanced and blue printed, to a streetable 244HP, I have the spec sheets. It has a Gener-Nator (replaced the generator); assembled with brand new high quality parts and stainless steel hardware.  The measurements are all of original standards thus allowing it to be mounted on the original brackets. A Gener-Nator will maintain and keep the battery in a fully charged state; provide the power you need for all your accessories as well as the ones you add on; control the voltage for optimum performance and not have you continuously worrying about you battery. It is NOT an alternator machined down and then stuffed inside a generator case.  It is, a very sophisticated piece of electrical equipment, to look stock and do the job of a modern alternator. Best of all, when you look under the hood, you see a generator not a modern looking alternator. It also has an original looking Delco Battery replica from Antique Auto Battery of Ohio, with original look repo battery cables. This small 215 cubic inch V8 is a primo rebuild by Mark and Dan LaGrou.

Thank you,

Dan

Correct, this one was ordered special.....you would not believe how well this engine and trans combo works together
She really loves the higher RPM's.

Plus...the fact that it a factory A/C car, 4 Speed with power windows in a Post Sedan. I have never ever seen one optioned like this one.

Trust me, I don't have to drive it to want it. I don't have a big enough barn or bank account to satisfy my love of cars. What's that saying? If I had all the money I've spent on old cars and parts, I would spend it on more old cars and parts. Lol.

 Brings to minds a similar comment: "I spent most of my money on fast cars and drag racing. The rest I just wasted." biggrin

I for one am amazed this car is still for sale. With all the comments you read of people complaining about the rising costs associated with our hobby, a car of this quality for less than 20k? It should be a no brainer for someone looking for a weekend cruiser.

 Well, if you just need someone to house it in a secure building, and take it out to keep the fluids circulating, I could probably help a Brotha out.  The old Special sedan would like to share space with another unloved,unwanted,unappreciated old post coupe.
