1964 Oldsmobile Cutlass F85 For Sale

I have owned this beautiful, rare, classic Oldsmobmile for the last 15 years. This car speaks for itself. Beautiful interior - console, bucket seats, power windows. Original engine replaced with an Oldsmobile 350 - fully rebuilt 15 years ago when installed and currently has approximately 40K miles on it. 3 speed turbo 350 tranny with approximately 30K miles on it. Carter 4bbl carb. Paint is 2 years old. No rust - car has been garaged. Complete new brake system, including master cylinder. This car runs excellent and is built for performance or comfortable cruising. Maintained and continually upgraded by knowledgeable owner. I love this car, but am in need of money and garage space currently so that is why the price is set a little low. Asking $10,000. My loss your gain. This car is ready to drive anywhere now and needs nothing. Financing and shipping available through 3rd party. I am in Oceanside, CA (San Diego County). Call Kurt (owner) at (619) 829-5175 for additional information about this car or send a pm here. Thanks for looking.

Thanks for pointing that out - in ads elsewhere I put the price in the heading so I missed that. I just added it - asking $10,000.

Hey folks, I'm interested in getting the opinion of the Oldsmobile experts on this forum. I have my Cutlass F85 advertised at $10K, but have received little response from the various websites I have it advertised on. In your experience, what do you think the value of this car is? I have had it for 15 years and am in it for a bit over $9K. $6K invested recently on paint, gaskets and misc. stuff. Honest opinions are welcomed! Here is a link to a site where I have 24 photos posted to give you all a better idea of what condition the car is in. http://www.autotraderclassics.com/cl...ationId=440313

Thanks in advance for any input!

Your problem is obvious - it's the Chevy wheels...

Seriously, that's a very solid car with nice options. Is that an aftermarket A/C under the dash in addition to the factory parts? What year is the 350? I'd say $10K is not unreasonable as an asking price. I looked at a very similar car (but on the east coast with some body issues and without the options) that had an $8K asking price. That car didn't sell too quickly, either.

Thanks for your input, Joe. Here ya go:

(1) Good eye - those are Chevy wheels! I knew I couldn't fake the Olds experts out here. Those things came with the car and, since I kind of like them, I kept them on all of these years - with the Chevy insignia and all. As you might be able to see, they now for the first time have the Oldsmobile insignia (basically heavy duty metal stickers). I have spent money on this car over the years on other things as I figure someone will want to put some really nice wheels on the car to suit their taste anyway.

(2) That is an aftermarket heater under the dash. The car doesn't have AC. I thought the car just needed a new heater core and bought a new one, but it is missing quite a few other hard-to-find parts for the original heater system as well. At least the control panel and levers are there on the dash so it looks like the original set-up is there. It is possible to get the original system working again, but I opted for the aftermarket system primarily in the interest of getting a defroster working quickly and because I just couldn't find all of the parts needed within a reasonable timeframe (my mechanic couldn't either). This heater works very good - probably too good for Southern California weather.

(3) The motor was put in the car by the previous owner - a mechanic and shop owner. He had it professionally rebuilt. From what I can tell by looking at the block numbers, it is likely a 1977 era Oldsmobile 350. I don't know how interchangeable parts are between the 1964 330 and 1970's era 350, but it appears some are as I have purchased some basic items (i.e. exhaust manifold gaskets, thermostat housing, etc.) indicated for the 1964 330 that fit this motor fine. This engine has proved very reliable for me over the years - from a couple long drives to being an 'almost daily driver' for the first couple of years I owned the car.

For the last decade or so this car has just been a pretty thing in my garage that I drive about once every two weeks to stretch her limbs. It has also been a bit of a hobby to tinker around with it, maintain and upgrade it. I'm not desperate to sell yet so I'll probably sit on it for a couple months at this price as it is hard to find a this model of Oldsmobile in this condition for this price. I might be persuaded to part with her for a little less, but that would certainly hurt as I have grown fond of this car over the years. I can honestly say this is the longest I have ever owned any car and I've owned A LOT of cars over the years. Thanks again for your thoughts on this. The objective feedback is much appreciated!

To be blunt, it's a nice car, however in this economy all values are depreciated for an Olds that is nothing special. You have to get someone to fall in love, cause it's basically worth what someone is willing to write a check for, and a value you are willing to accept.

I've been in the market for a 64 or 65 for a few years. Had a 64 and had to sell it for money to go back to school (ouch). Things being what they are, if the car was closer to stock - engine, original seat covers, console shifter, and factory air/heat, you may be able to get closer to your asking price. Ken

This car does have the console shifter, but the other items you mention are not stock. A lot of items on this car have been replaced with performance upgrading in mind. I think the previous owner valued performance over classic stock

Note that the car does have factory A/C vents in the dash and the A/C box on the firewall. The compressor apparently got misplaced when the engine was swapped, however.

Hello folks. I received a couple of offers on this car, but I'm dropping the price again to see if I can get a little closer to what I'm comfortable with. I'm now asking $6,000. Car will likely be sold by Friday of this week. Thanks!

I am the new owner of this car!

Bought it from a buddy of mine a year ago. Love cruising this car around. Going to be doing a 6.2L fuel injected LS3 soon with an overdrive trans.

Congrats on the car. Consider offering the Olds engine here so it can stay with people who would appreciate it. Good luck and welcome to CO.

Awesome BigBHova! I loved that car for 15 years. I am glad she found a new owner to care for her. Fun car that gets a lot of looks as I'm sure you know. I hope you enjoy the old beast. Cheers from an ex-owner.

I'll post the engine for sale once I've got all the parts ready to swap it out.

I'd like to swap a 6l80e auto trans, but that requires cutting the whole tunnel out of the floor boards and modifying it.

I'll probably just build a beefy 4l60e transmission and keep it controlled by the stock computer. I can pull the engine forward so there extra room for the tranny, and just shorten the drive shaft for it.

Just finished a swap with my brother on my fathers 67 el camino. My brother did most of the work, he swaps cars as a weekend hobby / side job .

That's too bad on the chubby motor in the Olds. Now it is not an Oldsmobile any more. It's a want-a-be chebby.

Beautiful car. Too bad you're going to give it a "mee too" LS swap.

Don't mind the comments, many here are Oldsmobile purists and it hurts to see an engine swap such as the one you are considering. Good luck though and like oldstata mentioned, post a thread about the swap in the non-olds powered section.
