Check out this 1970 Olds Cutlass that came into the shop for some love. The customer could hardly fit in his vehicle and it lacked all comfort.
The seat springs had been replaced elsewhere and the foam that was used was overly thick. This caused a seat that was way too stiff and way too high.
These things happen often when these cars are worked on by people who don't fully understand, or aren't used to the art of restoration. It takes decades of practice and experience.
When it comes to getting the work done right, you have to take it to the folks who know it best. The restoration experts at Thornton Muscle Cars know the proper parts to use, and how to install them.
He brought it in for us to replace the seats and hood. This car will be receiving a Thornton W25 OAI (ram air) hood. Look how great it turned out!
We have seat foams in production right now that will soon be installed. Even better news, you’ll soon be able to get your own. USA made, with factory contours that have been test fitted to be certain that it's all done to perfection…like everything at Thornton Muscle Cars. Keep an eye out for Thornton seat foams coming soon.
In the meantime, enjoy looking at the Cutlass 👍

Let’s compare! 🧐
A factory hood versus a Thornton Hood. Why the difference? The original hood required heavy body work to flatten out the wavy fiberglass. Fiberglass is known to dry over time causing a wavy appearance. 🌊
Often times original hoods are cracked or broken. Even the nicest original hoods tend to have stress cracks and/or spiderwebs that need proper repair, or else it will surface through the paint
However, this is not an issue found in a Thornton Hood. They are smooth with extremely minimal bodywork needed to be done on them. Why? A Thornton Hood is cured so that it won't warp over time. We use the latest and greatest technology in the fiberglass world: SMC (sheet molding compound). It is extremely strong and durable. 🦾
This is an enormous upgrade over the original hood fiberglass that was made with over 50 year old fiberglass technology.

If you've been following our stories, you saw it got its first layer of priming and sanding done. Here's the second coat of primer, now.
Does it look anything like it's previous posts, before repair? 😁

Assembling a Thornton hood takes a great amount of manual labor, patience, attention, and care. Don't forget about the passion! Just one of these babies can easily take up to two weeks+ to put together and complete. You don't find that devotion just anywhere 💪

Latches, window tracks, and regulators...gotta grease 'em up!

We've found that aerosol red grease does the trick. Gets into all of those hard to reach places, and will not dry out, which is definitely important.

It always comes back down to the little things, doesn't it?

This may be the most appalling picture I have ever come across from the internet. Yikes.
Gathering parts to fix my cutlass Looking for this hood with this bracing. 442 1971
Another beautiful Thornton master piece!
350 Jr manifolds, 2.5" pipe with single chamber Flowmaster mufflers. I'm pleased
I'm 62 I was lucky enough to have owned a lot of the cars you work on they were slightly used in 74
Any progress on 1972 silver X code? Great pics by the way!
Got them installed with no issues. For those of you that purchase gaskets you'll have to trim the gasket so the oil dipstick tube will fit properly. Remember to do this first so you don't bend the dipstick tube. What kind of dual exhaust system or brand do you recommend to compliment these manifolds. Has a great tone at idle but would like to hear it a little bit more while driving down the road.
They got to me with no issues I'll let you know once they're installed and running how they work out
Y’all have any plans in the works for more Thornton shirts? I don’t know why I don’t buy more than one at a time, because I wear them to death. 😉 Thanks y’all! Really enjoy your FB page.
Have always loved Oldsmobile. Though I drive a 72' El Camino. Easy on the egg throwing.🤭 :) Growing up as kids, mom had a 62' Olds 98'. We all loved that car! So many wonderful memories revolve around that 62' Olds, mom, my sisters, picnic outings, road trips. And the occasional "get in the car now kids"! "we're leaving and I don't give a damn what your father says"!
Thank you for going above and beyond for my family and all the wonderful service throughout the years! My family and I appreciate all the hard work and help we have received from all of you!
