    It looks like a Cutlass, but without additional photos, I cannot be sure.

    I think it's a '73 Oldsmobile Cutlass 4-door hardtop......

    I'd start the bidding at US$400.....

    Fully restored, average retail is ~US$9000....., but it may take twice that amount of money to restore it.....

    I suggest you keep looking. There are better examples out there and also very inexpensive.
    Tech is correct with the model and year. That model only has moderate power. There were
    Hurst Olds 2 doors with 350 and 455 motors in that year. Even the 455 was at best a mild performer.
    I had a 75 Hurst Olds with the 455 and the first T-tops. A mild road car at best.

    Yep.
    We had one some years back with the 350.
    We wrote it off because of rust issues; it just wasn't worth the time, money, or effort to restore.
    I sent it to get media blasted; what was left we could have brought home in a bucket.
    As a matter of fact I've still got a brand new windscreen for one tucked away in my shed.
    We put the motor and box went into the '47 when the flathead gave up.

    You might consider, too, that Oldsmobile has been extinct for some years, now, and although parts are available, Oldsmobile specific parts will start to become scarce sooner rather than later, and in Europe you will have a hard time finding parts if you need them. Were I you, I would consider a different make, one that is still in production.

    You might consider following something like "Bring-A-Trailer" (link) https://bringatrailer.com/ to find a more popular model, and then arrange shipping to Spain (link) https://www.justlanded.com/english/S...mporting-a-car There are many similar stories on their site of people doing that, to various places around the world.
