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 three different vehicles (the Cutlass Calais, Cutlass Ciera, and Cutlass Supreme) all shared the name.

1973

The F-85/Cutlass was redesigned for 1973-1977 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 Cutlass Salon was added in 1975 as an upscale model - this was the first Oldsmobile with the 'international' flags emblem which was later carried into the Cutlass Ciera line.


For 1975, Cutlasses used the Oldsmobile 260 V8 with a 5 speed manual transmission (T-50 - optioned in 1976 and 1977) or optional automatic transmission (TH-200 or TH-350). 1975 (MCMLXXV) was a common year starting on Wednesday (the link is to a full 1975 calendar). ...

1978

The 1978 Cutlass moved to a new version of the G-body with a shorter wheelbase. A mild restyle came in 1981. This Cutlass was lighter than earlier versions at around 3300 lb (1500 kg). The G-body version offers enough engine compartment room for larger engine swaps quite easily and this is the best way to gain back performance from this emission-choked year. 455s from earlier years will fit with minimal modifications and if the car was originally a 260, the engine mounts will line up when swapping a 455. Some G-body Cutlasses were powered with a Chevrolet 305 (5.0 L) to which the popular 350 Chevy and big block 454 Chevy also fit easily.

About 3000 Cutlass Calais coupes were equipped with the Hurst/Olds W-30 package.


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.

1997

1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass GLS

The simple Oldsmobile Cutlass name was revived in 1997 for a version of the new Chevrolet Malibu, replacing the Cutlass Ciera, and was exclusively sold in the United States. This model used the 107 in wheelbase GM N platform. 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 unique optional chrome wheels. 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. 1997 (MCMXCVII in Roman) is a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ...
