This deep black 1971 Oldsmobile Cutlass SX Convertible is powered by a 455 Olds V8 and arrived at the V8 Speed & Resto Shop with a turbo 400 automatic transmission. The owner wants to use this car often and make it a comfortable and reliable driver, so plans include a Holley EFI system and an overdrive transmission. However, he does not want to deviate from the classic original appearance of the car. Follow along as we improve the drive ability of this extremely sharp Cutlass!
We had an AWESOME night hosting the Red Bud Chamber Business After Hours. Local businesses had the chance to meet V8 Speed and Resto Shop owners Kevin and Kelle Oeste, and enjoyed shop tours seeing restorations and customized cars from all over the world. We’re happy to make Red Bud our home!
Special thanks to Route 3 Hut for providing a fantastic selection of spirits along with delicious appetizers by Kathy’s Wings-N-Things.
V8 Speed and Resto honors all Veterans, and we appreciate those who chose to be part of our team. We are fortunate to work on a variety of Classics and Muscle Cars for Veteran owners, as well. Thank you for your sacrifice and service to our country!
