1951 OLDSMOBILE "98"  Convertible

This is the rare 98 series convertible which shares the same main body with Cadillac of the same year

The car has nice patina and could be recommissioned and used as is

The engine runs well. however the brakes will need attention due to long term storage

Oldsmobile introduced the "Rocket" OHV V8 303 cu in in 1949 and it became the choice engine for many Hot Rods of the 1950s

The Olds looks like a "custom" straight from the factory and is extremely rare which makes it an ideal alternative to a Cadillac. Buick. Pontiac. Chevy of the period or a 49 -51 Mercury 


Original Vehicle ex -ARIZONA
