In Greg's words:

>1972 Cutlass Supreme
>VIN: 3J57V2M235xxx,  Mfg. May 24, 1972
>Sequoia Green w/ C08 black vinyl roof
>Green cloth interior w/bench seat
>L75 455 ci engine w/ M20 4 speed transmission
>G80 3.23 posi rear end
>N67 Super Stock III wheels
>D35 Sport Mirrors
>N47 Power Steering
>U58 Stereo w/U57 8-track
>U35 Clock
These are the options the car came with. I am adding Power Disc Brakes and the Ralleye Suspension (the car is scary to drive with manual front drums). I will keep the original parts. The car currently has 53,000 original miles.

I bought the car in 1980 and am the 3rd owner. I have a letter from Helen Earley at Oldsmobile that states 77 Hardtops and 66 Convertibles were made with the 455/4-speed combo. The car had the original engine when I bought it but was modified with period speed equipment. It also had American  Racing rims and Borg Warner T-10 tranny. I have a correct M-20 for it and
most of the parts to restore it correctly. The body is currently off the frame as it is undergoing a full restoration. The body is in geat shape, and the frame and undersides are complete (pics below). The engine will be rebuilt. I am shooting for a Summer '05 completion date.
