1973 Oldsmobile Omega Project Part 3
Here's the (almost) finished product after about a year of weekend work. I
say almost finished, because any car guy will tell you the project never
ends...there's always something more to be done! Interior was re-done,
almost everything under the hood replaced, trunk freshened up and a TON of
small detail work. Gonna get the A/C working next, but after that..who
knows. Maybe I'll just drive it for a little while. :)
1973 OLDSMOBILE OMEGA -- CLONED FROM THE CHEVY NOVA
In 1973 GM had the bright idea of utilizing the Chevy Nova chassis and body
for the new compact Buick Apollo and the Oldsmobile Omega. Both clones
look like a Chevy Nova except different front and rear end treatments. Of
course both of these clones like the Chevy Nova were at the bottom rung of
all three divisions. All three compacts came in a hatchback coupe, coupe
and 4 door sedan. This coupe is one of 26,126 made and had a price tag of
$2,613. Engines for the Omega were a L-head 6 with 250 cid and 100 bhp.,
and a V8, 350 cid with 180 horses. GM market share kept climbing, reaching
just over 52% of the domestic industry. The Omega replaced the final year
of the Olds F-85 which only came in a four door model and only 3,792 were
made for it's last year. While the Buick Apollo sales faltered, the Olds
Omega continued on through the 1984 model year and then replaced by the
Olds Firenza. All three compacts could be dressed up with a vinyl roof and
some power accessories. This example is hardly seen anymore and is in
excellent condition. My guess is that is was an one owner car most of it's
life and always maintained and garaged. I hope you enjoy this first year
clone, the 1973 Oldsmobile Omega and thanks very much for viewing.

The Cutlass Supreme was downsized for 1978, along with the rest of the
Cutlass line. An upscale Cutlass Calais model was added, differing from the
Cutlass Supreme only in minor trim details. The new notchback Cutlass
Supreme proved to be far more popular than the controversial fastback
Cutlass Salon coupe and sedan introduced at the same time..
Both the Cutlass Supreme and Calais were optioned with T-tops and/or a
factory sunroof, even on the base Cutlass Supreme coupe with the factory
radio delete option.
From 1978 through 1980, a high-performance 442 model was available, and for
1979, a special-edition performance model, the Hurst/Olds was offered.
These used the Supreme's notchback body, rather than the standard fastback
coupe's. Around 2,499 Hurst/Olds were produced - all were powered with an
Oldsmobile 5.7L (350 cubic-inch) Rocket V8 (not the diesel engine) sourced
from the full-size Delta 88 and Ninety Eight Regency. Also included in the
Hurst/Olds package was the Hurst Dual/Gate shifter for the three-speed turbo Hydra-matic transmission..
This was also the first year GM introduced the OBD-I computer controlled
engine management and emission control system.
The 442 option moved from the aeroback Cutlass Salon coupe body to the
notchback Cutlass Calais for 1980, with content upgraded from a mere
"appearance and handling" package back to a legitimate performance option
with content similar to the 1979 Hurst/Olds including its 350 Rocket V8.
This would be the last 442 until that model was revived in 1985, again on
the Cutlass notchback body, as a successor to the 1983-84 Hurst/Olds.
In 1981, the Cutlass Supreme coupe received an aerodynamic restyle (with a
"shovel-nose" front header panel), which, along with a higher rear deck,
decreased air resistance by 15%. It would continue with this basic
design until the final rear-drive Cutlass was produced in 1988. A 4-door
sedan was added to the Supreme lineup, with a new front end and a slight
taillight lens restyle (resembling a touch-tone dial or Rubik's Cube - this
lens style was used until 1984). It was this restyled body that (along with
the Monte Carlo, Buick Regal, and Pontiac Gran Prix) ushered in the
down-sized cars into NASCAR cup competition. While the Cutlass looked
almost identical to the Buick Regal (which scored 35+ victories in the 1981
thru 1985 seasons), the Cutlass (like the Dodge Mirada) didn't take one
checkered flag, and many teams moved away from it in 1983 to the Regal,
Grand Prix, and restyled Monte Carlo SS. This was a rude awakening to
Oldsmobile, which was getting used to wins on the NASCAR circuit.
The Cutlass Supreme parted mechanical company with the rest of the Cutlass
line in 1982, when continuing high sales convinced GM to continue
production of its rear wheel drive mid-size cars alongside the new
V6-powered, front-wheel drive A-body, known as the Cutlass Ciera. The
rear-wheel drive sedan and Cutlass Cruiser wagon became part of the Cutlass
Supreme line in 1982. The wagon was dropped for 1984 as a new Cutlass
Ciera-based model was introduced.
The Hurst/Olds reappeared on the Cutlass Calais coupe for two years, first
in 1983 as the black over silver 15th anniversary, and then as the silver
over black 1984 model. Both featured chrome wheels, red striping and a high
output Oldsmobile 307 V8 with 4 barrel carburetor, dual muffler Exhausts and Hurst's then new three stick
Lightning Rods shifter (the latter eventually becoming a magnet for
thieves.) All Hurst/Olds were automatics.
