Gross sales of the Oldsmobile Cutlass peaked throughout the 1977-1981 interval, with the Cutlass and Cutlass Supreme occupying both the #1 or #2 spot within the best-selling vehicle charts for many of these years. Again then, all Cutlasses lived on the 1964-vintage A platform, however the Cutlass household tree diverged into a number of branches starting when the Chevy Celebrity-sibling Cutlass Ciera debuted within the 1982 mannequin 12 months. After that, issues bought very complicated within the Cutlass world, with the Cutlass Supreme changing into a W-Body (and thus sibling to the 1999-2016 Impala) for the 1988 by 1997 mannequin years. Immediately’s Junkyard Gem from Denver is likely one of the strongest W-body Cutlass Supremes ever offered, and it even has a convertible prime.

The MSRP on this automobile began at $22,699, then bought bumped up an extra $995 for the LQ1 engine (that involves about $43,270 in 2021 {dollars}). In the meantime, a brand new 1993 BMW 325i convertible value $36,320 and had simply 168 horsepower (although it did have rear-wheel-drive and an obtainable guide transmission).

In 1993, Oldsmobile consumers might select between the W-Physique Cutlass Supreme or the unrelated N-Body Cutlass Ciera.

This automobile got here with the keys inside, which suggests it in all probability got here to this place as an unsellable dealership trade-in or an insurance whole.

Oldsmobile itself disappeared after 2004, proving unable to turn out to be the “Youngmobile” of GM marketers’ dreams.
