The Cutlass Supreme was Oldsmobile's crack at the personal luxury car segment. It ran over five generations between 1966 and 1997 and morphed into a regular mid-size car. Of course, mid-size was all relative in America, where everything's larger than life. This 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Brougham hails from the fourth generation of the nameplate. With just 22,000 miles, it's a fine example of a time when land yachts ruled American roads.
Did you ever think that a mid-size car would be 200 inches, and yet, a two-door? That's precisely why vehicles such as this 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Brougham are called land yachts. This land yacht wears a baby blue paintwork with a white hard top. It rolls on a set of steel blue dished alloy wheels and features ample Oldsmobile badging. Quad headlamps up front and slim taillamps at the rear are all Eighties luxury hallmarks. The dark blue interior of this 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Brougham looks in excellent condition for its age. The seats could be mistaken for plush sofas from an upmarket furniture manufacturer, with their buttoned design and ample cushioning. You'll also find air conditioning, a radio cassette stereo, a cigarette lighter, power windows, power mirrors, cruise control, and adjustable instrument panel lighting. A column-mounted shifter performs gear selection, and there's plenty of wood trim on the dash and doors. The trunk carpeting appears to be in decent nick, save a little dusty. We can also spot the spare wheel nestled neatly to one side.
If you're thinking of burning rubber and cutting apexes in this 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Brougham, you'd better banish those thoughts right now. Those plush seats are for lounging as you steer this land yacht down the road. This car's got a 5.0-liter variant of the Oldsmobile 'Rocket' series V8 rated for 140hp and 250lb-ft. Curiously, it features a four-barrel carburetor. Drive goes to the rear wheels through an automatic transmission. Cruising is this car's specialty, as you use its low and mid-range torque to glide along the roads with nary a whimper from the tires.
