Hello, This is a True Time Capsul, first owner had it until 2001 when the second family bought it. The owners took it to many shows and collected several trophies, with one being the First Place in Unrestored class at the Concours d elegance in Missouri in 2003. The car has all the original paint, interior, spare tire and Rare 12V headlights. All the original paperwork with owners manual, numbered keys. All the paint is original! 100% Rust Free! Never Repaired or Damaged!
The paint has a few light spots, great patina, the interior is a 91/2 out of 10. The carpet has only slight wear, door panels are perfect, no marks or warping at the bottom. One armrest has very few wrinkles. If you look at the milage chart you will see that it was parked from 1988 till 2001 when the second owners purchased it. This chart was taken from all the receipts for repairs. They kept everything purchased or repaired. A complete rebuild of transmission was done in 2003 along with the brake system, treadle vac and master system. I went through the fuel system and the tank, cleaned and a new liner to protect it. All the glass is great with no cracks, window roll up and down smoothly!! No fizzy cans was used under the hood, original paint on everything. I have judged many shows and I usually do the Factory Original Class and I’m telling you that it would be very hard to beat this Rocket!! This Olds is 65 years old and would be hard to tell from a car 5 years old! There is no dents, scratches, door dents or stainless dents. It has always been garaged and babied like a family member! Please look closely at all the pics and let me know if you need any other information!
