    This 1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme is not a car that many would consider a good restoration candidate. However, this car has a very cool story in the fact that it is still owned by the man who bought it new, and he has been able to enjoy the car for many years. There have been many trends for mid-1980s General Motors G body cars like this, but the owner resisted, and has kept the car true to its stock form in most respects.

    The owner brought the car to us at the V8 Speed and Resto shop asking about some paint work. The car had suffered some hail damage and the original two tone paint job was starting to fade. He also reported that he did not like the wing on the deck lid, and that the stock 3.8 liter V6 engine was underpowered.

    Follow along as our team fixes the damage, repaints the car, and ditches the anemic 3.8 in favor of a 400 hp Holley Terminator EFI YearOne Power Crate engine as well as a myriad of other upgrades.

    The first step was to evaluate the condition of the paint and the hail damage.

    The crew carefully removed all of the trim pieces from the car, being careful not to crack or damage the brittle plastic retainer clips. They also removed items like the bumper covers and emblems.

    I love this era Cutlass. When I was in driving school, we drove brand spankin’ new 85 Cutlass Supremes. A cool comfy car.
