    Like I said I have known this car since it was one year old. Now I am suppose to believe that someone drilled all those holes down the side to put on all that chrome and not bother with doing the hood when it was less than a year old. It had its original paint when I strip it in high school in the mid 70’s. So you can understand why I am never going to believe someone did that to it.

    Here is a 1962 convertible for sale. https://www.ebay.com/itm/392769905173?ul_noapp=true

    You do realize that the side trim was factory-available on the F-85 convertible under option K-8, right? As the car in the ebay ad Jim linked shows – an F-85 convertible could have been ordered from the factory with the same chrome side trim as a Cutlass (or F-85 Deluxe), but it would have had F-85 emblems, not Cutlass emblems.

    O.K. I see, and I can believe it is possible that someone like the dealer put the Cutlass emblems on my car for a better sale. That car on ebay has the fancy steering wheel, back up lights, and a clock. Also you see how the oldsmobile is spelled with individual letters across the back. I wonder if that is a F-85 only thing, or do some Cutlass have it that way also?

    Read the option list. You could separately order all the trim pieces used on the Cutlass models when you bought a base F-85.
