said I would

Please bear with the newbie who was a pre 1980 HS graduate. I've been working on my '75 TMO (Y-76 variant) for a few years and it is now suitable for viewing, just the exterior. Fresh Horizon Blue paint and hand pinstripes. I still need to complete my swap from column to console shift, and all that goes along with that. Plus I have a few details to finish up. So I will be asking for help from the Classic Olds group. I tried to download pics of the "new" one, my blue original, and my next red TMO project but don't know if I was successful. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks db







75 Y-76 package just like the one I had back in the day (almost)



this was my first TMO

TMO stands for Trusted Men of Olds. It was a 1974-77 Oldsmobile Cutlass Special Marketing Edition; Y76. TMO must have been the the Central Illinois version. Below is a cut and paste from https://www.v8cars.hu/cutlass/stuff.php? Although he left out the TMO edition it is pretty comprehensive.

Y76 Special Option Package (on G37 Cutlass S Coupe)

Includes:
Chrome Sport Mirror - LH/ Remote Control,
Argent Colored Super Stock Wheels,
Body Accent Stripes,
Modified Roof with Special Landau Top,
Salon Steering Wheel,
Stainless Steel Top Band (77 only)
Special Order Codes - According to 1975 Oldsmobile Inspectors Guide

Includes:
CB1 - White vinyl landau roof with white roof & rear quarter panel stripes
T93 - Cutlass Supreme Rear lamps & quarter extensions
AB8 - Quarter plug
Cutlass Salon steering wheel

Mandatory with Y76:
DD3 - Sport Mirror - all chrome with body support matching body color
N71 - Wheels painted argent - code 301
Y70 - Body Paint Stripe - White - Fender & Door
BIG-4 appointments - 19X - black, 26X - blue, 44X - green, 63X - saddle or 73X – oxblood

I had one back in the late 70s, guess I'm re-living my teenage years.

Welcome, nice cars!
Like John said, have questions... many here have the answers. Enjoy your ride from the past.
Oldcutlass (Eric) put a sticky on a 73-77 thread as well to post in when you get a chance.
