Over the years, the Cutlass name was used by Oldsmobile as almost a sub-marque, with a number of different vehicles bearing the name simultaneously. This was probably shrewd, because the Cutlass name had great equity and became one of the most popular nameplates in the industry in the 1970s. However, the proliferation of Oldsmobile Cutlass models caused confusion in the market-place in the 1980s, when four different vehicles (the Cutlass Calais, Cutlass Ciera, Cutlass Cruiser, and Cutlass Supreme) all shared the name. Those Cutlass models each have their own pages: A marque (French for brand and pronounced as mark) is a brand name, most commonly used for automobile brands. ...

Origins of the Cutlass

The first Oldsmobile Cutlass was an experimental sports coupe designed in 1954. It rode a 110 in (2794 mm) wheelbase, and had a dramatic fastback roofline, with a stock Oldsmobile V8 engine. Its platform was quite similar to the later compact Olds F-85, which was not introduced for seven more years. 1995 Buick Riviera coupe A coupé (from the French for cut) or coupe is a two or four-seater car with a fixed roof and two doors. ...

General Motors began developing its first compact cars in 1956, beginning with the Chevrolet Corvair. The following year a second series of somewhat larger cars was planned for Buick, Oldsmobile, and Pontiac, what would be termed "senior compacts." They would share the same body shell and lightweight engine. Oldsmobile designer Irving Rybicki began work on the Olds model in 1957. It finally went on sale in 1960 as a 1961 model.

The Oldsmobile, dubbed F-85, shared a new A-body platform, using a 112-inch (2845 mm) wheelbase and still-novel unibody construction, with the Buick Special and Pontiac Tempest. It was Oldsmobile's smallest, cheapest model -- some two feet (60 cm) shorter and $451 cheaper than the next-smallest Olds. The F-85 had double wishbone front suspension and a four-link live axle in the rear, suspended with coil springs all around. Standard engine was the new small V8, all aluminum, displacing 215 cu. in. (3.5 L). With a two-barrel carburetor, it was rated 155 hp (115.6 kW) and 210 ft·lbf (284 N-m). Transmission options were initially three-speed manual or the newly introduced three-speed Roto Hydramatic. The F-85 had drum brakes of 9.5 in (241 mm) diameter.

1961

The first-year F-85 was offered as a two-door sedan, a four-door sedan in base or Deluxe trim, or a four-door station wagon with either two or four seats, in base or Deluxe form. Initial sales were somewhat disappointing, but were soon picked up by the May introduction of the Cutlass sports coupe (a pillarless two-door hardtop), sporting unique trim, an interior with bucket seats and center console, and a four-barrel version of the V8 engine, rated at 185 hp (138 kW). This engine was optional on other F-85s, as was a four-speed manual transmission. 80,347 F-85s were built in total. A notchback full-size luxury sedan. ...

Car Life magazine tested a F-85 with the standard engine and automatic transmission, and recorded a 0-60 (0-96 km/h) time of 14.5 seconds, with a top speed just over 100 mph (160 km/h). They praised its construction, but found its steering too slow and its suspension too soft for enthusiastic driving.


1962

The existing F-85 models returned, and a convertible was added to the line-up in September, available in both standard and Cutlass versions. Overall F-85 sales rose to 97,382, with the Cutlass displacing the four-door Deluxe sedan as the top-selling model.


Bigger news was the arrival of the Jetfire model, a Cutlass hardtop with a turbocharged version of the 215 V8 rated at 215 hp (160.4 kW) and 301 ft·lbf (407 N-m), bucket seats and console, unique trim, and a vacuum gauge mounted in the console (where it was almost invisible). Although much faster than a standard F-85, the Jetfire was criticized for having the same soft suspension as its less-powerful brothers, for its lack of a tachometer and other instruments, and for the poor shift quality of both the automatic transmission and the optional four-speed. Car and Driver tested an automatic Jetfire and obtained a 0-60 time of 9.2 seconds, with a top speed of 110 mph (176 km/h). The Jetfire's high cost (nearly $300 over a standard Cutlass coupe) and reliability problems with its turbocharged engines limited sales to 3,765. “Turbo” redirects here. ...

1963

A modest restyle for the 1963 model year added four inches (101.6 mm) to the F-85's overall length, increasing it to 192.2 inches (4882 mm). Three-seat station wagons were dropped. The Jetfire and its turbocharged V8 returned, for what would be its final year. Overall sales climbed again to 121,639, of which 53,492 were Cutlasses.

Disappointing sales of the compact F-85, along with the introduction of Ford Motor Company's intermediate Fairlane in 1962, prompted GM to enlarge the senior compacts for the 1964 model year.

The new intermediate F-85 now rode a conventional body-on-frame chassis with a perimeter frame. Wheelbase grew to 115 inches (2921 mm), overall length to 203 in (5156 mm), and weight by more than 300 lb (135.7 kg). Both the aluminum V8 and the Roto Hydramatic were discontinued in favor of a new cast-iron small-block V8 of 330 cu. in.

The body styles of the previous model returned, and a new Vista Cruiser, a stretched-wheelbase (120"/3048 mm) version of the standard station wagon featuring a raised rear roof and tinted skylights, debuted on February 4, 1964. The 442 model, derived from the BO-9 police package, was also introduced in April 1964, as an answer to the new intermediate musclecar market created by the Pontiac GTO that same year. The Vista Cruiser was a station wagon built by the Oldsmobile Division of General Motors from 1964 to 1977, which was based on the Oldsmobile Cutlass/F-85 model, but had a longer full-sized car wheelbase (120-121 inches) than the intermediate sedan chassis (115-116 inches) it was... is the 35th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Sales increased to 167,002 for 1964, not counting Vista Cruisers.


For 1965 a modest facelift increased overall length to 204.3 in (5189 mm). A bigger 400 cu. in. (6.6L) engine was included with the 442 option, based on the newly introduced 425 cu. in. (6.9L) engine from the full-sized Oldsmobiles while the Buick 225 cubic-inch V6 and Olds 330 cubic-inch Jetfire Rocket V8 were carried over from the previous year with increased power ratings for the V8 options. Sales increased again to 187,097. 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 The Oldsmobile 442 (pronounced four-four-two) was a muscle car produced by the Oldsmobile division of General Motors. ...


The 1966 models were slightly restyled again. The Buick V6 was replaced on base models by an Oldsmobile-badged "Action-Line 6" version of Chevrolet's 250 in³ "Turbo-Thrift" straight-6 engine. New that year was the Cutlass Supreme four-door hardtop sedan also dubbed the Holiday Sedan by Oldsmobile, the first such bodystyle for Olds' intermediate line.

Major news for 1967 was the availability of optional disc brakes and the three-speed Turbo-Hydramatic to supplement the two-speed Jetaway. An unusual new model was the Turnpike Cruiser, which used a two-barrel carburetor and mild camshaft with the 400 in³ (6.6 L) engine and a (numerically) low axle ratio for efficient and relatively economical freeway cruising.

1968

The F-85/Cutlass underwent a major body restyle in 1968, as did all other GM A-body cars. Oldsmobile's was penned by the styling studio headed by Stan Wilen. Two-door and four-door models now rode different wheelbases: 112 inches (2845 mm) for two-doors and 116 inches (2946 mm) for four-doors. Ostensibly, this change was to allow more individual styling, although several engineers were quoted off the record as saying the 115-inch wheelbase had created problems with uncomfortable "freeway hop" owing to its resonant frequency. Overall length shrunk about 2.6 inches (66 mm), but curb weight rose approximately 75 lb (34 kg). Two-door F-85 and Cutlass models adopted a semi-fastback roofline with a massive rear end. This 1968 Ford Mustang has a fastback body style. ...

Base model remained the F-85, with mid-level Cutlass S, and upscale Cutlass Supreme, as well as the 442. A limited-production model was the Hurst/Olds, a special 442 marketed by Oldsmobile and Hurst Performance. The H/O combined the 442 suspension package with the big 455 cu. in. (7.4 L) V8, not ordinarily offered in Cutlasses because of a GM policy limiting intermediates to engines of 400 cu. in. (6.6 L) or less.

Hurst Performance Inc. ...


Engine options were similar to the previous year, although the Cutlass's V8 option was expanded to 350 cu. in. (5.7 L). The variable-pitch stator feature of both optional automatic transmissions was discontinued.


1969

The 1969 F-85/Cutlass models received only minor trim changes from their '68 counterparts such as a now-Olds trademark split grille with vertical bars and vertical taillights. Per federal safety regulations, headrests were now standard equipment and the ignition switched moved from the instrument panel to the steering column to lock the steering wheel when not in use, in common with all other 1969-model GM cars a year before the locking steering columns were federally mandated.


Engine offerings were unchanged from 1968, but a new three-speed Turbo Hydra-matic 350 transmission was added to the option list and available with all versions of the 350 in³ (5.7 L) Rocket V8, including the standard two-barrel 250 horsepower (186 kW) version, four-barrel "Ultra High Compression" 310 horsepower (231 kW) option and the 325 horsepower (242 kW) version included with the W-31 option. The old two-speed Jetaway automatic was still available with the Chevy-built 250 cubic-inch "Action-Line" six or the two-barrel 350 V8. The Turnpike Cruiser two-barrel 400 Rocket V8 was dropped and the four-barrel 400 engine from the 4-4-2 was available only in the Vista Cruiser wagons.


1970

The 1970 Cutlass came in seven body styles: the base F-85 two door sedan, as well as the two door hardtop offered in both notchback Cutlass Supreme and fastback Cutlass S and 442 body styles - a practice similar to Ford and Mercury intermediates of that time, which were offered in both notchback and fastback coupes starting in 1968. Also available were a four door hardtop, four door sedan, a convertible and a flat top station wagon called the Custom Cruiser, as well as the fancier Vista Cruiser station wagon.

With GM tossing out the 400 cubic-inch limit for intermediates and the 4-4-2 now coming standard with the larger 455 cubic-inch Rocket V8 from the big Oldsmobiles and previously used in the 1968-69 Hurst/Olds, Olds discontinued the 400 engine entirely and also offered the 455 as an option in the Cutlass S models and the Vista Cruiser wagons.


The same assortment of three- and four-speed manual transmissions were carried over from previous years with Hurst shifters used on floor-mounted three-speeds and all four-speeds. The two-speed Jetaway automatic transmission was discontinued entirely with the three-speed Turbo Hydra-matic now the sole offering for shiftless driving. Cutlass S coupes with the optional Strato bucket seats and Turbo Hydra-matic could be equipped with the Hurst Dual-Gate shifter in conjunction with the extra-cost center console.

1971

The 1971 model shared much of the same exterior sheetmetal as the 1970, but with a new hood, grille, and headlight assemblies, as well as new bumpers and taillights. Four new exterior body colors were offered, Viking Blue, Lime Green, Bittersweet, and Saturn Gold.


The famous "Rocket" V8 continued in several different sizes and power options, with both the large 455 and 'small block' 350 available with either 2 or 4 barrel carburetor. This was the last year for the 250 cubic-inch six cylinder engine, as it had not been a very popular offering in Olds intermediates. In 1971, all engines came from the factory with hardened valve seats, preparing for the upcoming mandate for unleaded gasoline that took effect with the introduction of catalytic converters on 1975 models. The 1971 Olds engines also featured lowered compression ratios and designed to run on regular leaded, low-lead or unleaded gasolines with research octanes of 91 or higher (equivalent to 87 octane by today's octane measurements).


1972

For 1972, there were minor style changes to the Cutlass, and the 442 reverted back to being a trim line (W-29 option) on the Cutlass instead of an individual model, as it was in 1971.


The primary changes to the 1972 Cutlass were the front grilles and the tail lights.


The new 1972 Hurst/Olds used the Cutlass Supreme notchback hardtop and convertible body. The straight-6 engine was retired temporarily, but returned to the lineup in 1975 following the 1973-74 energy crisis for two model years before it was replaced by a Buick-built 231 cubic-inch V6 in 1977, which was basically the same V6 previously used on some 1964-65 Olds intermediates.

The low-line F-85 series was down to a single four-door sedan and discontinued during the course of the 1972 model year due to low sales. This move also ended the use of the F-85 nameplate that dated back to 1961, although it would resurface a few years later on a base-line version of the compact Omega.

1973

The F-85/Cutlass was redesigned for 1973 using GM's new "Colonnade" A-body platform. The model lineup consisted of the Cutlass "S", Cutlass Supreme, Cutlass Salon, Vista Cruiser station wagon, and the 442 appearance package on the Cutlass "S" colonnade coupe.


The slope-backed Cutlass Salon was added in 1973 as an upscale model, first as a 4-door, then a 2-door in 1974.

1976

The Oldsmobile Cutlass became America's best selling car this year. A radically restyled front-end that year was carried over into 1977 and, with continuous refinements, lasted into the late 1980s. The sides were also re-shaped for a less contoured look.


Optional engines were the Olds 350 or Olds 455, but only with automatic transmissions. The Buick 231in³ V6 was added for 1977, replacing the previous inline 6. The Olds 403 replaced the 455 that same year. Manual transmissions returned, in the form of a 5-speed floor shift or 3-speed column shift. A 4-speed floor shift was also available on a limited basis.

1978

The 1978 Cutlass moved to the new version of GM's A-body with a shorter, 108 inch wheelbase. This Cutlass was lighter than earlier versions at around 3,300 pounds (1,500 kg), and it could be ordered with any of several engines built by GM's different divisions; a Buick 231 V6, Oldsmobile 260 V8, Pontiac 301 V8 or Chevrolet 305 V8s with either 2 or 4 barrel carburetors.


The '78 Cutlass lineup included the Salon & Salon Brougham fastback coupes and sedans and the formal roof Supreme, Supreme Brougham and Calais coupes. The Salons were styled more like imported hatchbacks than racey fastbacks (although they had a separate trunk), and they quickly proved to be far less popular than the notchback Supreme and Calais coupes. There were also 2-seat (6 passenger) Cutlass Cruiser and Cutlass Cruiser Brougham station wagons; both being smaller, more conventional replacements of the 3-seat (8 passenger) Vista Cruiser. All Broughams featured softer, quieter than standard rides, and trim and upholstery that was far fancier than base models. A factory T-top was optional, but only on Supreme, Supreme Brougham and Calais coupes. The 4-4-2 appearance and handling package, available on Salon and Salon Brougham coupes only, featured large lower body stripes and 4-4-2 decals outside, unique 4-4-2 seats and badges inside, and a taut performance suspension featuring quicker steering, heavier springs, stiffer shocks, a stiffer front stabilizer bar, a rear stabilizer bar and fatter tires. The Cutlass Calais used essentially the same suspension as the 4-4-2, but it also came standard with several other performance and touring options, including full instrumentation, an aluminum spoked sport steering wheel, reclining front bucket seats and a center console with floor shifter. Cosmetically, the 1978 line continued through 1979 with only slight changes front and rear.


Hot rodders find the smaller Cutlass' engine compartment is still large enough to make most engine swaps easy. If the Cutlass came with an Olds 260, earlier Oldsmobile V8s, including the 455s will fit with minimal modifications - even the engine mounts line up. Cutlasses originally powered by a Chevrolet 305 (5.0 L) permit an easy swap to the popular 350 Chevrolet and big-block 454 Chevrolet. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

1979

The same model lineup continued, with a revision of both the front grille and taillight lenses. A diesel-powered Oldsmobile 260 (based on the Olds 350 diesel) was optional; diesel Cutlasses had the "Oldsmobile Diesel" badges on the decklids, where gasoline-powered Cutlasses had the "Rocket" logo. The decklid (or deck lid) is the cover over the trunk/boot of motor vehicles that allows access to the main storage or luggage compartment. ...


About 3,000 Cutlass Calais coupes were equipped with the Hurst/Olds W-30 package, featuring aluminum wheels specially trimmed with gold paint, an exclusive console mounted Hurst Performance Dual Gate floor shifter, special gold over black or white two toned paint and an otherwise unavailable Oldsmobile 350 V8 with 4 barrel carb and dual outlet exhausts.

Cutlass Salon


1980

Both the Cutlass Supreme and Calais coupes received new header panels incorporating four headlights, mimicking the 1977 model. Sales of the Cutlass Salon (the base Cutlass) were dismal to which the aero-styled sedan and coupe led to 1980 as the final year of the base Cutlass Salon (the nameplate would be revived again in 1985 when the Calais was moved to the GM N platform); a formal notchback 4-door sedan (the Cutlass and Cutlass LS sedan) was introduced to which sales picked up. Sister division Buick did the same with their Buick Century sedan (the 1978 to 1980 Centuries shared the bodyshell with the Cutlass Salon). The 4-4-2 package was moved to the Cutlass Calais, and while it lacked the Dual Gate shifter, it was essentially a carryover of the 1979 Hurst/Olds, even having the Oldsmobile 350 V8.

1981

1981 brought a complete styling change to all GM A-bodies, including the Cutlass. The 1981 line consisted of Cutlass Supreme and Supreme Brougham coupes and sedans, Calais Coupes and Cruiser and Cruiser Brougham station wagons. Fastbacks were gone forever and the 4-4-2 was gone, but the line and its options were otherwise as it had been since 1978. (The Hurst/Olds and 4-4-2 were both resurrected in subsequent years.)


Sixth Generation: Cutlass Ciera and Cutlass Calais

1982 and beyond

The smaller Cutlass Ciera was introduced on GM's new front-wheel drive A platform for 1982, while the Cutlass Supreme remained on the (now renamed) rear-wheel drive G platform for six more years. The Hurst/Olds reappeared on the Cutlass Calais coupe for two years, first in 1983 as the black over silver 15th anniversary Hurst/Olds, and then as the silver over black 1984 Hurst/Olds. Both featured chrome wheels, red striping and a high output Oldsmobile 307 V8 with 4 barrel carburetor, dual muffler exhausts and Hurst's then new three stick Lightning Rods shifter (the latter eventually becoming a magnet for thieves.) After 1984, the Cutlass Calais moniker was lifted from the G-body coupe and applied to the new N-body Cutlass Calais coupes and sedans, so the sporty rear-drive Cutlass known as Calais from 1978-1984 became the 1985-1987 Cutlass Salon. Also, as they had done in 1980, and again without the special shifter, Oldsmobile carried the Hurst/Olds into the subsequent years with the 1985-1987 (Cutlass Salon) 4-4-2. For 1988, Oldsmobile decided to extend the life of the rear-wheel-drive Cutlass for one last trip around the block. They built a limited number of 1988 G-Special Cutlass Supreme coupes, naming them Cutlass Supreme Classic, as they were to be sold alongside the new front-wheel-drive (W-body) Cutlass Supreme.

The previously mentioned N-body Cutlass Calais, introduced in 1985, brought the number of distinct Cutlass models to three. In fact, in 1988 there were four completely distinct Oldsmobile car lines carrying a Cutlass badge: The A-Body Cutlass Ciera, the N-Body Cutlass Calais, The W-Body Cutlass Supreme, and the G-Special Cutlass Supreme Classic coupe.

The simple Oldsmobile Cutlass name was revived in 1997 for an upscale version of the new Chevrolet Malibu, replacing the Oldsmobile Ciera, and was exclusively sold in the United States. Exclusively built at the Oklahoma City Assembly plant, this model used the 107 in wheelbase GM N platform and being siblings to Pontiac Grand Am, Buick Skylark, and Oldsmobile Achieva. This model was a bridge between Oldsmobile's Achieva and Alero models, making this a placeholder model. It was also later regarded as a stop-gap measure to give Oldsmobile a model to sell below the larger Intrigue until the new Alero (also on the N platform) arrived in 1999. Panned by many as the 'Cutlibu,' it did differ in its Oldsmobile split-grille fascia, full-width rear taillamps, and its unique optional chrome wheels. Its base model also offered more standard equipment than the Malibu, like a split-folding rear seat and power locks. Production of the N-body Cutlass ended July 2, 1999, marking it as the last car to bear the Cutlass name. It was replaced by the Alero. The Alero also replaced the smaller but related Achieva.

Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1811 words)
When the Cutlass Calais became a separate model on the GM N platform in 1985 (as the Calais until 1988), the rear-wheel drive Cutlass Calais was rebadged as the Cutlass Salon (taking its name from the upscale Supreme coupe and sedan dating back to 1975, last used in 1980 as the entry level Cutlass).
The Cutlass Supreme's place in the Oldsmobile line was taken by the 1998 Intrigue, also on the W platform.
The W-body Cutlass Supreme was built in Doraville, Georgia from 1988 to 1995, and at the Fairfax Plant in Kansas City, Kansas from 1995 to 1997.
