Heavy Metal: 1965 Oldsmobile Cutlass F-85

Remember when you could find 60s 2-door muscle sedans offered on craigslist for less than $5k?  Yeah, those were the good old days — but WAIT, you can re-live the glory days of cheap muscle by avoiding the over priced “collector” cars and getting a pile of junk like this 1965 Oldsmobile Cutlass F-85 offered for $4,750 in Naples, FL via craigslist.  Tip from Dascpcu.

The second generation Oldsmobile Cutlass started life as a compact, but sold in greater numbers when it was put on an intermediate chassis starting in 1964.  The new car rode on a body-on-frame chassis instead of the old unibody, but its new added mass brought refinement and character.  

Under the hood is what I assume to be a 330 cubic inch V8 mated to a powerglide
2-speed automatic transmission and a 10 bolt rear with 3.23 gears.  The
engine was rated at 250 horsepower when new and this one needs some TLC before you can terrorize the neighborhood.
