About Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon
The Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon was a vehicle that was released in 1973. It was constructed on the brand-new A-body chassis. It was a high-end luxury sports sedan with parts like a newer suspension and an international flags emblem for the first time. The Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon was the model year that set a record for the most sales for the Oldsmobile brand. It's easy to understand why, with its sleek aesthetics and a variety of model options.
In 1973, the Cutlass Salon series was redesigned based on GM's new A-Body platform. The range consisted of the Cutlass Salon. Although parts like the roof lines were common to the other GM divisions, the Cutlass Salon body had two convex curved lines characteristic of Oldsmobile design. One started behind the front wheel, crossing the tailgate and curving upward toward the rear, and the other curved downward just before the wheel and continued the curved quarter line behind the rear wheel. This model had optional Strato seats with high backrests and integrated headrests. They could swivel 90 degrees for easy entry and exit for the driver and passengers.

The new Salon package started out as a 4-door Colonnade sedan. In 1974, a 2-door hardtop coupe joined the lineup. It was a luxury package with a high-end look. Parts like the front disc brakes were standard on every Cutlass. The standard engine was a 350 Rocket V8 with 180 horsepower and a 270 horsepower 455 V8 with a hotter cam and W30-style heads.
In 1975, the Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon was equipped with two smaller engines to appeal to fuel-efficient buyers in the wake of the fuel crisis. All engines were equipped with catalytic converters and were to run on unleaded gasoline in the United States. Canadian buyers could opt out of the catalytic converter. The side exhausts are somewhat more angular and are divided into eight sections on each side. The headlights now have an integrated grille. The new two-piece taillights are vertically divided. The Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon has chrome trim on the hood. A fuel gauge is optional. It has a redesigned front end, with its split grille and new rectangular headlights. These parts became a trademark in later years and remained so until the late 1980s.
