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

The Olds has a cleaner sportier look than the Cadillac of the same year.

1951 Oldsmobile 98 Convertible – excellent original survivor and an easy restorer  The car is from Arizona  so the body is straight & sound with the right amount of patina    303 Olds Rocket V8 Automatic. Engine runs well.      Power windows & seat. Power top.   The body is unrestored and EXCELLENT original condition. with EXCELLENT Panel Fit. Very minor localised rust in floor – possibly due to leaking under seat heater otherwise excellent body   The car appears to be complete from original air cleaner to hubcaps. If there is anything missing it will be minor.   Needs cosmetic restoration only given the sound condition of the body.   It is very difficult to find any original convertible which is 65 years old in such original unmolested condition with excellent factory panel fit and almost zero rust - virgin metal
Given the rarity and value of this model in the USA it would be unlikely that this vehicle could be imported at the present time for the  price of  $ 49. 99 OBO

This car on offer represents a rare opportunity and is a relative bargain when compared to the recent Shannons sale ( 29 Aug 2016) of a 1950 Cadillac Convertible (which shares the same main body with the Olds ) for $141. 00

The Oldsmobile powered by the legendary ROCKET 303 V8 is considered the sportier offering in the GM line for 1951

The Olds has less chrome clutter and a clean "custom" like grille compared to the Cadillac version which makes it look like a period "custom" car.

Don't miss this opportunity.  when compared to the  recent sale of the 1950 Cadillac Convertible this car is a BARGAIN !!! . with the potential to improve the car without over capitalisation.  

Any unrestored collector vehicle over 30 years old is sold as is . ith no warranties express or implied. The photos form part of the description.
