If you were in high school in the mid '50's to the mid '60's and this was your ride - you would have been "KING OF THE HILL".

You can still be "KING OF THE HILL".

After years in storage this rare Oldsmobile is ready for your garage.

Nosed. decked. lowered 3" and fitted with these timeless Fiesta spinners we love the look of this classic. This cool mild custom runs and drives very nicely. There are a few mechanical issues that any "backyard mechanic" can fix. the rear wheel cylinders. the right axle seal. the rear axle seal and the carburetor leak. The left tie rod has play. all these concerns are normal for a car that was stored for some time.

This is a great cruise night classic that has tremendous upside potential and at our price it won't break the bank - a win/win.


Only close offers will be considered.
As with all the cars we offer. we encourage independent inspection.
