1969 Oldsmobile Cutlass W-31
1968 GM introduced their W31 Ram Air Cutlass S with its "Ram-Rod" 350 V8 Engine offering 325HP. The "Ram Rod" was distinguished by its functional ram-air intakes under the front bumper to feed power to its V8 Engine. The "Ram Rod" decals still adorn the air cleaner on this low production model. Dependent on the source, this is 1 of 569 units made.
OPTIONS: PS, Pwr Antenna, Tilt Wheel, Bucket Seats, Gauge Pkg, Rally Suspension, Spoiler, AM/FM Radio Ralley Wheels, 3:42 Posi Rear End, Rare induced air electric cooling motors, Enlarged Harmonic Balancer correct for W-31
EXTERIOR: GM Crimson Red ("52") with white painted stripes painted in 2-stage Base/Clear. The body fit & finish is exceptional and the paint is a strong 9 out of 10 for its merits. There are a few small touch-up worthy paint chips on the left door edge and center grille area. There is a scratch on the left quarter wheel arch that has been touched up and doesn't detract greatly from it's presentation. Strips are painted------not decals. The body is solid with no signs of rust or collision damage evident (see trunk photos).
All the trim is intact and in good shape.
All the glass is good except for a stone chip at left lower corner of windshield that is not in the field of vision.
Tires are about 50% worn and otherwise unremarkable. No curb rash to wheels.
All lamps work as they should but the left front park lamp needs a bulb.
Spoiler is present and makes for a great look on this muscle car. The functional ram air-scoops below the front bumper are what make this really aggressive looking.
INTERIOR: Black Dash and steering wheel are soft and free of any cracks or damage. The off-white vinyl interior is original, clean with no bolster wear or loose seams etc.
Headliner is intact (not loose or sagging).
Seats are comfortable.
All instruments work as they should including power antenna and radio.
MECHANICAL: 350 V8 (325hp) starts easily and roars. No oil leaks, runs out nice.
