1977 Oldsmobile Cutlass Apparel and Accessories by Legend Lines
New grilles highlighted all 1977 Cutlass models reverting to an upright grille/front end while the more aerodynamic slanted front end was only offered with the 4-4-2 option. "Oldsmobile" nameplates in a new sans-serif typeface replaced the former script ones. Inside was a slightly revised instrument panel with the clock relocated to the right side of the dash above the glovebox. This also marked the introduction of Oldsmobile's new mechanical digital clock. The Chevrolet inline six was replaced by Buick's 231 V6 standard on all models, while the 260 and 350 Rocket V8s were carried over. The big-block 455 Rocket V8 was discontinued and replaced by a new small-block 403 cubic inch Rocket V8. Transmissions included a three-speed manual, five-speed manual or three-speed Turbo Hydra-matic. 632,742 Cutlasses were built in 1977, the highest production for the model.
