Manufacturer General Motors
Production 1966–1997
Successor Oldsmobile Intrigue
Class Mid-size

The Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme was a mid-size car produced by General Motors for the American market. It was always at the top of the Cutlass range. It began as a trim package, developed its own roofline, and eventually was mechanically divorced from the later, smaller Cutlasses.

The Cutlass Supreme was Oldsmobile's version of this bodystyle for that one year. For 1967, the Cutlass Supreme line was expanded into a full series that also included a two-door hardtop coupe, two-door pillared coupe, four-door pillared sedan and a convertible. Generally, interior appointments in Supreme models were more luxurious that lesser F-85 and Cutlass series cars and included a cloth or vinyl notchback bench seat with armrest in sedan models and all-vinyl bucket seats in coupes and convertibles.


For both years, the standard Supreme engine was Oldsmobile's 330 cubic-inch Rocket V8 rated at 320 horsepower with a four-barrel carburetor with transmission offerings including a standard three-speed manual with column shift, floor-mounted four-speed manual with Hurst shifter or a two-speed Jetaway automatic.


In 1967, the 400 cubic-inch V8 used in the Oldsmobile 442 was made available as an option on the Supreme, but with a more economical two-barrel carburetor and 300 horsepower rating along with a numerically lower rear axle and Turbo Hydramatic transmission as part of a "Turnpike Cruiser" option designed for economical high-speed highway cruising. 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 The Oldsmobile 442 (pronounced four-four-two) was a muscle car produced by the Oldsmobile division of General Motors. ...

The Cutlass and other GM intermediates were completely restyled for 1968 with wheelbases shortened to 112 inches for two-door models and lengthened one inch to 116 inches for four-door sedans and station wagons (with the exception of the glass-roof Vista Cruiser wagon, which rode on an even longer 121-inch wheelbase). The Cutlass Supreme, now the top-line Olds intermediate series was pared down to two- and four-door hardtop models with the pillared sedans and coupes dropped and the convertible moved to the lower-priced Cutlass "S" line. Also the standard Rocket V8 was enlarged from 330 to 350 cubic inches with 310 horsepower. The 1969 models received only a minor facelift with the same model and engine offerings.

For 1970, the Cutlass Supreme nameplate was switched to Oldsmobile's equivalent of the downsized Pontiac Grand Prix on the GM A platform, to give the division an entry in the burgeoning market for smaller personal luxury cars. As such, the two-door hardtop had a new notchback roofline, while lower trim-line Cutlass coupes had a near-fastback roof. The model remained in this role for virtually all of its production life. Unlike the Grand Prix and the also-related Chevrolet Monte Carlo, which had wholly separate bodies and names from their less expensive siblings, the Supreme used front and rear body parts from the standard Cutlass line and was always marketed as part of it. In addition to the two-door hardtop, the Cutlass Supreme series for 1970 also included a four-door hardtop sedan and regained the convertible bodystyle.

Supreme interiors were more luxurious that those of other Cutlass models, with a choice of a Custom Sport notchback bench seat with armrest in Osborne cloth or Moroceen vinyl or, at no extra cost, Strato bucket seats in Moroccen vinyl. Available at extra cost with the bucket seats was a center console with floor-mounted shifter for which the Turbo Hydra-Matic transmission could also be had with the Hurst Dual-Gate shifter commonly found in the division's musclecar, the Oldsmobile 442.

For 1970 and 1971, both the Cutlass Supreme coupe and convertible were available with the Code Y-79 high performance SX option package. The "SX" option included several versions of the larger 455 cubic-inch Rocket V8 borrowed from the Olds 442 along with the cutout rear bumper and exhaust trumpets, 442's rallye suspension (optional), distinctive SX badges and other features.


A W31 option added body color bumpers and a rear spoiler, distinctive stripes and badging, and a hotter camshaft with increased lift and duration for the 350 engine. The W31 option was offered on Supreme coupes only in 1968, but continued on lower-line F-85 and Cutlass S coupes through 1970.


1972 was the only year in which the Cutlass Supreme notchback hardtop could be equipped with the L75 455 and M20 four speed transmission, and only 77 of these cars were produced. All 1972 L75 455/M20 cars used the larger 2.07 valves and the W30 automatic camshaft. This gave the L75 455/M20 cars 270 net horsepower, as opposed to the TH400 automatic-equipped L75 cars, which produced 250 net horsepower.

In 1973, the Cutlass Supreme, like other GM mid-size cars, was redesigned. Hardtop models were replaced by new "Colonnade" styling with fixed center pillars. Concerns over proposed rollover standards caused many automakers to phase out their pillarless hardtops throughout the 1970s (this included the Ford Torino coupe) and convertibles, and the Cutlass was no exception. Cutlass Supreme coupes had a unique roofline not shared with other Cutlass coupes, as well as unique front end styling. For 1976, a new front fascia design with quad rectangular headlamps debuted. This new Cutlass design was highly successful, becoming one of the best-sellers of the time. The Cutlass line as a whole was America's best-selling car in 1976. By 1977, however, GM had downsized its full-size models, and the Cutlass Supreme was now nearly identical in size to the redesigned Delta 88. That situation would last only that one year, as GM planned to downsize the Olds Cutlass and other intermediates for 1978. Image File history File links 1977Cutlass4Door. ...

In addition to the Colonnade hardtop coupe, the Cutlass Supreme was also offered in a four-door Colonnade sedan (with six-window styling and frameless door windows) as well as six-and-nine passenger station wagons - the wagons with the woodgrain exterior trim were marketed under the Vista Cruiser nameplate previously used on Oldsmobile's stretched-wheebase station wagons with raised roof and skylights from 1964 to 1972. The Vista Cruiser was a station wagon built by the Oldsmobile Division of General Motors from 1964-1977, which was based on the Oldsmobile Cutlass/F-85 model, but had a slightly longer wheelbase than the cars it was based upon. ...


The Supreme Colonnade sedan was available in 1973 as the Cutlass Salon, which was an option package that included radial tires, upgraded suspension and reclining bucket seats upholstered in cordoroy trim along with color-keyed wheelcovers - designed as sort of a European-style luxury/touring sedan similar to the Pontiac Grand Am of the same period. For 1974, the Salon package was also made available on the Supreme Colonnade coupe and in 1975, the Salon was upgraded to a separate series available in both sedan and coupe. The Pontiac Grand Am was originally a mid-size car and later a compact car that was produced by the Pontiac division of General Motors. ...


For 1976, the Cutlass Supreme Brougham coupe was added to the line, featuring a more luxurious interior trim than the regular Supreme model with pillowed crushed velour upholstery and 60/40 bench seats similar to the larger Ninety-Eight Regency.

The Cutlass Supreme was downsized for 1978, along with the rest of the Cutlass line. An upscale Cutlass Calais model was added, differing from the Cutlass Supreme only in minor trim details. The new notchback Cutlass Supreme proved to be far more popular than the controversial fastback Cutlass Salon coupe and sedan introduced at the same time.

From 1978 through 1980, a high-performance 442 model was available, and for 1979, a special-edition performance model, the Hurst/Olds was offered. These used the Supreme's notchback body, rather than the standard fastback coupe's. Around 2,499 Hurst/Olds were produced - all were powered with an Oldsmobile 5.7L gasoline engine sourced from the full-size Delta 88 and Ninety Eight Regency. 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 The Oldsmobile 442 (pronounced four-four-two) was a muscle car produced by the Oldsmobile division of General Motors. ... 1979 Hurst/Olds W-30 Wikimedia Commons has more media related to: Oldsmobile Hurst/Olds Following the success of Hurst components in Oldsmobiles 442 models, Hurst Performance of Warminster, Pennsylvania, in collaboration with Oldsmobile, produced special-edition performance versions of the Cutlass Supreme, the Hurst/Olds. ...


In 1978, the Cutlass line featured taillights which had a lighted Oldsmobile rocket logo in the center.


In 1979, the taillights on the Cutlass line dropped the rocket logo.


In 1980 the Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme (and Calais) went back to four headlights. A 4-door sedan was introduced (initially as the Cutlass and Cutlass LS) which outsold the base Cutlass Salon. The Supreme Brougham package was available on and off throughout 1978-1988 production. This was also the first year GM introduced the OBD-1 computer controlled engine management and emission control system.


In 1981, the Cutlass Supreme coupe received an aerodynamic restyle (with a "shovel-nose" front header panel), and would continue with this basic bodystyle until the final Cutlass Supreme Classic was produced in 1988. The 4-door sedan remained unchanged with a slight taillight lens restyle (resembling a touch-tone dial and/or Rubik's Cube - this lens style was used until 1984). It was this restyled body that (along with the Monte Carlo, Buick Regal, and Pontiac Gran Prix) ushered in the down-sized cars into NASCAR cup competition. While the Cutlass looked almost identical to the Buick Regal (which scored 35+ victories in the 1981 thru 1985 seasons) oddly the Cutlass didn't take one checkered flag, and many teams moved away from it in 1983 to the Regal, Gran Prix, and restyled Monte Carlo SS.

The Cutlass Supreme parted mechanical company with the rest of the Cutlass line in 1982, when continuing high sales convinced GM to continue production of its rear wheel drive mid-size cars alongside the new V6-powered, front-wheel drive A-body, now known as the Cutlass Ciera. The rear-wheel drive sedan (previously badged as the Cutlass LS) and wagon Cutlasses (Cutlass Cruiser) became part of the Cutlass Supreme line in 1982. The wagon (known as the Cutlass Cruiser) was dropped for 1984 as a new Cutlass Ciera-based model was introduced. 1963 Oldsmobile The Oldsmobile Cutlass was an automobile made by the Oldsmobile division of General Motors. ...

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 General Motors N platform (commonly called the N-body) was a front wheel drive compact car automobile platform produced from 1985 to 2006. ...


1987 was the final year for the rear-wheel drive sedan, and both coupe models received a restyled header panel with composite headlights. A Buick 231 was the base motor alongside the Oldsmobile 307. For its final year, the 442 package was moved to the Supreme model. The Buick V6 engine family, sometimes called the Fireball, is a large V6 engine used by General Motors. ...

1988 was the final year of production of a rear wheel drive Cutlass Supreme. The RWD coupe continued in production as the Cutlass Supreme Classic. The 2-door coupe (produced alongside the Chevrolet Monte Carlo at GM's Pontiac, Michigan plant) continued, until the new front-wheel drive version was released in December 1987. The Olds 307 was the only available engine. The Chevrolet Monte Carlo was an American mid-size car. ...

A front-wheel-drive Cutlass Supreme based on the GM10 platform (W-body) was introduced as a coupe mid-year during the 1988 production run, while the final year of Cutlass Supreme RWD coupes were still being produced. This new FWD model shared its 107.5 in wheelbase on the new W-body with the Pontiac Grand Prix, Buick Regal, and Chevrolet Lumina. As part of introducing the all-new FWD Cutlass Supreme, Oldsmobile secured their place to be the 1988 Indianapolis 500 Pace Car, the car that introduced the Head-Up Display to the world. 250 pace car replicas were produced, including 50 custom-made convertibles; some or most were used as festival or parade cars before and during the race. These 50 were turned into convertibles by Cars and Concepts of Brighton, MI. These custom convertibles were the first 50 cars released to the public with a Heads Up Display, and then subsequently recalled for reasons unclear. The 1988 and 1989 models were 2-door coupes. A sedan and a production convertible were added in 1990. Models included base (later called S), SL, and the sporty International Series. Throughout its run, the convertible was considered its own separate trim level.

The Cutlass Supreme parted mechanical company with the rest of the Cutlass line in 1982, when its great success persuaded GM to let it remain V8-powered and rear wheel drive on the GM G platform after the other Cutlass models had gone to the V6, front wheel drive A-body.
