In 1970 Oldsmobile introduced a new Cutlass Supreme options called the SX Performance Package. The Y-79 option featured several 455ci engine options, a 400 Turbo Hydra-matic transmission, a cutout rear bumper with dual exhaust, special SX badges on the fenders and other goodies not found on a standard Cutlass Supreme. Order the right options and you had a 442 in disguise and avoided the high muscle car insurance premiums. At minimum you would own a rare muscle car that would only last until 1971.
As of February 5, 2017 there are 682 cars in the Cutlass SX Registry!
The SX455 Club is the official resource for all things Oldsmobile Cutlass SX. Since 2005, we have been registering as many SX cars as possible and documenting everything there is to know about these rare muscle cars.
In 1970 there were three 455ci engine options for the Cutlass SX. In 1971 there was only one Cutlass SX engine. These engines offered up to 365HP and 510lbs of torque!
The production numbers for this two-year-only (1970 & 1971) model are less than half of the highly collectable Oldsmobile 442 models, plus many of the Cutlass SX cars were sent to the junk yard crusher before the car became collectable. Finding or seeing a Cutlass SX is rare, even at the largest Oldsmobile Club of America annual nationals meet.
ALL 1970 and 1971 standard Cutlass Supremes and the Cutlass SX models had same basic VIN codes, so identifying a real Cutlass SX can be difficult. This website will help you identify a real Cutlass SX. If you are thinking about purchasing a Cutlass SX, do your research before you make an offer.
The Cutlass SX is certainly a unique and rare General Motors muscle car, and will continue to gain in popularity and value as more collector car enthusiasts discover these great cars. Sophisticated styling, luxury options and big block performance make the Cutlass SX a great gentleman's muscle car.
