This 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass from Zanesville, Ohio and is currently being sold on eBay. The seller claims that this is a solid classic ride with only 33,880 miles. As of writing, the bidding war for this Oldsmobile is just over $1,000.
The owner has purposely left the dust that has accumulated for more than 10 years were it spent in a storage. According to the current owner, the original owner of this car was the father in law of his brother. This Cutlass would probably look like it was just a year old car with some thorough car wash. The Sears tires look like they are period correct tires as well. Very few minor damages are on the car which can easily be repaired. There is also about a half-inch rust spot on the bottom side of the passenger’s side door.
Does the hood look like it does not close well? Or maybe the seller just forgot to close it tight. The chrome does look like its rust free and will probably shine like new after some polishing. This Cutlass just needs some care to make it look like new.
The interior looks flawless as well. Even the pedal pads look like they haven’t been used much. The floor mats also look like they are still the original factory released ones. The CB radio that has been added by the original owner really gives it the 70s vibe. It also features a cruise control, although it is not the original one.

The black leather seats look really great as well. It is safe to say that the entire interior is all original with no major issues. Although the seller has noted that the rear speakers are not original.
According to the seller, the Rocket 350 Oldsmobile engine with the 4 barrel carburetor is still original, the same goes for the automatic transmission. The air condition has not yet been tested if they are still working but it won’t be that much of a trouble to fix. The seller also added that there is some paint peeling on the engine bay. There are brake fluids leaking near the brake booster, some brake lines will probably need replacements. There are also some minor oil leaks near the oil pan. After some minor flaws, the car still drives which is good news for anyone who is interested.
This 44 years old 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass is a solid survivor and it would not be surprising if the bidding wars will get higher.
