1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Convertible

1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Convertible

When I think Cutlass, I think of the 1984 Cutlass Supreme seen below. The near-premium personal-luxury coupe was almost absurdly popular in its day, and was usually the best-selling car in the Chicago area every year.

I imagine anyone of a certain age sees a different car when they hear the model name Cutlass. First used by Olds back in 1961 as the top trim level on the compact F-85, the Cutlass badge has adorned almost countless body styles and price points in the maker’s lineup.

Indeed, the Cutlass has been a coupe, sedan, convertible, station wagon, and has seen service as a compact and midsize car. The following are just a few of the specific models to which the Cutlass moniker has been attached:

1954 Cutlass Concept

The Cutlass name was also applied to this 1954 Oldsmobile concept car.

  • F-85
  • Hurst
  • 4-4-2
  • Supreme
  • Salon
  • Calais
  • Ciera
  • Cruiser/Vista Cruiser

The Cutlass name was last used by Oldsmobile in 1999, applied to small sedan which was pretty much a clone of the contemporary Chevrolet Malibu.

While 12 ads don’t do the Cutlass legacy justice, we think we’ve collected a decent representation of the vehicle’s broad history down below. If you have any thoughts on the Cutlass, share them below.
