The last year of the G2 Oldsmobile Cutlass is 1972; the convertible was a top seller for Olds and the best selling soft top in the the States that year, with 11,571 units manufactured, but it is also the last Cutlass convertible offered until 1990. A Hurst/Olds convertible is the Indy 500 pace car this year. The entry level engine for the Cutlass line is a 330 cu in (5.7 L) V8, or optionally the Rocket 350 cu in (5.7 L) is the second choice. The 442 is an Olds top performer and would be powered by the 455 Rocket, with 2 versions to choose from. There are three transmissions on the table as well, a 4-speed standard, a 2-speed automatic, or the Turbo 400 3-speed automatic.
