RealRides of WNY (on the road) - 1972 Oldsmobile

Looking through old brochures and ads gives one the impression that the 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme convertible, like the one pictured here, wasn’t high on Olds’ sales priority list. It barely gets a mention in the full-line brochure, where the Lansing car manufacturer seemed more interested in pushing the cushy (and big-selling) formal hardtop model. This didn’t stop a present-day owner however, from advertising his “well-documented two-owner California” CS droptop recently in Hemmings for $29,900, “sold as is.” (They went for a starting MSRP of $3,433 and only 11,571 of them were built.) The advertised car, located in Houston, reportedly had only 27,310 miles on the odometer. The mileage on today’s dark brown RealRide, seen last summer on a trip to Kennebunkport, Maine, is unknown (to us, at least!).
