The oil crisis of 1974 was still fresh in people's minds as they looked for economical transport...so Chevy, Pontiac, Olds and Buick offered versions of this right-sized car. This one happens to be for sale..it looks like the low mileage claimed! 305 c.i. engine and automatic, and the interior looks absolutely new. Appears the car was originally sold in Philadelphia and has the inspection stickers of that area. A neighbor of mine years ago had the Chevy version that was a hatchback.
1964 Chevelle Malibu SS Convertible Blu
Outstanding is the way I'd describe this car! First year for the Chevelle.
The owner has added A/C, a practical necessity for this area. The
interior, exterior and underhood area are flawless.
1965 Chevy Biscayne 2Door 396 Blk
What a car! The owner obviously knew what he had, and he kept it! It has
a history on the track. The exterior and interior are mint. This car
qualifies as a definite sleeper...who knows, the guy pulling up to you in a
Biscayne probably has the 6 cylinder...guess again!
1922 Ford Model T Huckster Wagon
Ford made Model T's from 1908 to 1927, some 15 million of them! This along
with the depot hack was a truck modification of the vehicle for very
practical purposes. This truck brought wares to the consumer. Very simple
mechanics, very easily repaired. Ford really put America on wheels!
1957 Chevy Bel Air Hardtop Blu
A very nice example! It looks like the original automatic has been traded
for a three speed manual transmission because of the appearance of a
clutch. Note the color coordination of the interior, and the smart two
tone fabrics. Chevy really spared no expense on these Bel Air models,
making them very fashionable.
1959 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Flagship
This 1959 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight is finished in its factory colors of
Polaris White & Bronze Mist. It is powered by the 394 cubic inch Rocket V8.
They don't build 'em like this anymore! Lets ride! Filmed with Texas
Classic Cars of Dallas, another samspace81 classic car production.

Just waxed the car up before heading out to a car show. This was the first
time out of the garage since i got it re-painted. LOOKS AWSOME!!
1978 OLDSMOBILE CUTLASS SUPREME COUPE -- STRONG SALES CONTINUE
The whole 70's decade of Olds Cutlass' showed strong sales year after year.
The intermediate size Cutlass had several models. The Salon, Salon
Brougham , Supreme, Calais, Supreme Brougham and the Cruiser wagon came in
sedan and coupe models with the wagon as a 4-door. The Supreme coupe like
this one shown sold 240,917 units and total Cutlass models sold over
380,000. That's strong sales continuing. By purchasing a Cutlass you
could choose from 5 engines. First choice was a V6, 231 cid / 105 bhp.,
then V8's, 260 / 110, 305 / 145 - 165, and finally a 403 / 185 -190. A
buyer had a choice of ten different wheels or wheel covers. Padded roofs,
opera windows, plush velour or pleated vinyl interior, plenty of
pinstripping, power accessories galore were common features. All
Oldsmobile models did well yet again this year with strong sales of the
Starfire, Omega, Delta 88, Ninety Eight and Toronado. Yes, the seventies
were the pinnacle of Oldsmobile status, sales, popularity and quality.
After this decade, the decline slowly but eventually took place. Thanks
very much for viewing this splendid example of an Olds Cutlass Supreme
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.
