                MY STORY         I bought this car in 2004 after a lengthy search.   I am this vehicle's third owner. according to the seller.   I have owned it for 10+ years during which I undertook multiple restorations and modifications.   This Oldsmobile has been my pride and joy. turning heads and starting conversations everywhere I take it.   I will truly miss it. and will want to be informed of its progress from time to time.         WHY SELLING                  

       

        My reasons for selling it are:

                     

My son is in college now and my daughter will begin in 2016.   Accordingly. my wife and I will be downsizing from our large home that has plenty of parking. to a modest condo which will not have enough parking spaces to store this extra vehicle.

           

I no longer have the time to devote to planning its various repair and upgrade projects. shop for parts. and take it from shop to shop.

           

Sadly. corrosion is developing in several trouble spots. which I presume is the effect of the geography of my new home.   I bought this vehicle in central Wisconsin and I lived with this vehicle in Michigan for several years. which are relatively dry locations.   When I moved to Miami. near the ocean. the corrosion began.

           

Several mechanical problems have appeared and I no longer have the time or energy to rectify these. and even if I did. my wife is no longer willing to follow me to my mechanic and bring me back there when the work is done.

           

A new owner with adequate resources. especially time. tools. and skills. is needed to keep this vehicle running to and beyond its 50th birthday.   I simply cannot do it anymore.                 SPARE PARTS INCLUDED                

        Old radiator hoses (keep for emergency)

       

        Extra left and right front turn signal lenses. used but solid (from eBay)

       

        Extra mounting screws for headlight cover doors. a handful of used ones (to replace a few that are missing)

       

        Box of new amber bulbs for front turn signals (was a special order from NAPA)

       

        Two rear horizontal shock absorbers. new in box (sometimes impossible to source - these were bought from Fusick)

       

        Door jamb wire boots. 2 new ones in box (from Fusick)

       

        Two tilt/telescopic steering columns for future conversion (from eBay) (will need compatible steering wheel – not included)

       

        Exterior vent panel behind rear window. right in front of trunk lid (in case it is ever desired to remove vinyl roof and repaint)

       

        One extra wheel center cap

       

        Extra light bulb sockets and wires

       

        Extra rear window defogger blower motor assembly (from eBay)

       

        Extra NOS vacuum check valve (from eBay)

       

        Four new interior door lock chrome trim rings

        Recent professional appraisal

                        TEST DRIVE                   Contact me at the e-mail address seen at the top of this web page.   We will meet in Key Biscayne. Florida. which is next to Miami.   You will have to pay $1. 50 to cross the causeway into Key Biscayne.   I will provide a link to a Google map to our meeting location.   As I am a working professional. please do not be late.

Make sure to bring with you:

1) Your current. unexpired driver's license.   I will be taking a picture of it with my iPhone.

2) Proof of automobile insurance.   I will photograph that also.

3) Proof of sufficient funds available for a cash purchase.   A printout of your bank account statement dated the week of your test drive. will be adequate.             SALES TERMS                   For payment using cash. the transaction must be done at  the teller window of my bank branch.   The vehicle will then be yours.

For payment using your bank's cashier's check or a money order. the instrument must be inspected and approved by a teller or manager at my bank branch.   The vehicle will be yours when the funds appear in my bank account.

       

Sorry. no personal checks or other forms of payment will be accepted.

       

The title of this vehicle is clear. however the name on the title is that of a trust which I control.   This will delay somewhat the transfer of title to your name.   If this situation necessitates an additional fee for the title transfer. then this fee shall be paid by the buyer.   Additionally. buyer is responsible for the payment of sales tax in his/her state of residence.

       

My automobile insurance policy does not cover buyer.   My insurance coverage for this vehicle will be canceled after buyer hands over payment.

       

Buyer may arrange for transport of this vehicle at buyer's expense and risk.   Of course payment and title transfer have to be completed first.   As a favor to buyer. I will maintain the vehicle inside my garage after it is sold. and facilitate delivery to the auto transport operator. provided the operator comes to within one mile of my residence.   However my insurance policy covering this vehicle will have been canceled so buyer must assume all risk.

       

This listing will be withdrawn if vehicle is sold locally or through any of the other websites on which it is listed.

        NO WARRANTY                

WARRANTY INFORMATION.   This vehicle is being sold as is. where is. with no warranty. expressed. written. or implied. The seller shall not be responsible for the correct or incorrect description. authenticity. genuineness. or defects herein. and makes no warranty in connection therewith. No allowance or set aside will be made on account of any incorrectness. imperfection. defect or damage. Any descriptions or representations are for identification purposes only and are not to be construed as a warranty of any type.

The seller shall and will make every reasonable effort to disclose any known defects associated with this vehicle at the buyer's request prior to the close of sale. Seller assumes no responsibility for any repairs regardless of any oral statements about the vehicle. Thank you for looking. WHY 27. 00 The professional appraisal of $30. 00. minus a few thousand dollars          for repairs (loud exhaust. engine hesitation. and several rust spots).   And please note the very low mileage for a 46-year-old car: 40. 00.
