Oldsmobile Cutlass (A-body). 1978–81 (prod. n/a). 4-door sedan, 2-door coupé, 5-door wagon. F/R, 231 in³ (V6 OHV), 260, 305, 350 in³ petrol, 260, 350 in³ diesel (V8 OHV). Successor to one of the world’s top selling cars, downsized in response to fuel crisis, though with comparable interior room, while trunk space actually went up. More reliable. Smaller diesel underpowered. Aeroback four-doors for 1978 and 1979 only, but were not successful; notchback replaced the shape for 1980, though coupé stayed with its Aeroback look. Salon coupé had the 442 performance option for 1978–9. Merged into Cutlass Supreme line in 1982 when Oldsmobile fielded the Cutlass Ciera in the intermediate market.
