The 73 Cutlass proved to be one of the best models the American manufacturer had constructed and it really succeeded in topping other models which were dominating the market at that time. Not only did it feature well designed interiors and eye catching exteriors, but it would also pack the engine power you would expect from such a beast.
Thus the new model would feature sheet metal which would render the looks of the 1973 Cutlass closer to that of European designs. There was also a new 7 inch diameter dual headlamps and also a split grille. The Cutlass S coupe and the base series had featured grille sections with a pattern of horizontal rectangles, while models like the Vista Cruise wagon and the Supremes would have vertical bars displayed. Going down to the fender ends you could notice a pair of vertical tail lamps (only in sedan models and coupes), which overall signaled a new design of the rear end. When it came to the rear bumpers, they were designed to comply with the barrier impact requirements asked by the government.
Inside the car you would find that the conventional bench seats would be the standard for the Cutlass. You could also have the option of choosing the type of cloth to house them in (Morocceen). Or if you wanted a sporty look, then going with the front bucket seats, again part of the Morocceen upholstery, would prove to be a good option for prolonged comfort.
When it came to the instrument panel, the designers decided it was a good idea to have it re-designed from scratch. Outlining the instrument panel’s center were 2 round gauges, and if you wanted a breath of fresh, clean air you could easily access the climate and audio controls on the right. Also, you could find 2 circular vents which would flank the upper edge of the glove-box lid, if you would look to the right of the dashboard.
