Oh man, you have my all time #1 car on my wish list....1972 Olds Cutlass 442, and in red too. Just needs the rear wing to be complete.

My wife wants a Rallye green '72 Cutlass convertible, we've been looking for a nice one for over 10 years.

Those Cutlass from that era were known to be very rust resistant. There weren't a lot of them around but I remember seeing them in the 80s still in great shape when most of the cars of that age were rusted away, especially the Fords. We are in the salt belt here and use mucho road salt. The Fords of the early 70s would rust through in 2-3 years. A lot of those cars are southern US cars that have been imported. Many still have state plates on them.

I sold my 72 Cutlass S  for parts cause it was so rusted. Quarters were both gone, holes in front fenders, doors and trunk lid were rusted out from underneath and worst was the rear window rusted out all the was around frame. I so wished I still had that car. 

My neighbor has a Red 70 442, man I about wreck the Tahoe every time he has it out.
