1962 Oldsmobile StarfireThis 1962 Starfire is a very nice restoration of a totally rust-free Southern California car completed in 2005. It received more than 930 points in judging at the OCA National Meet in Seattle that year. I am selling the car for the widow of the life-long Olds collector who meticulously built it.
The restoration included complete dis-assembly but the body was not removed from the frame. Since 2005 the car has been stored in a climate controlled structure. Since 2005 the car has been driven only to car shows and has accumulated a little more than 6000 miles since the car was rebuilt. It operated flawlessly during the 3000 mile round trip from Riverside CA to Seattle in 2005.
The interior is immaculate. It has the correct original Starfire floor inserts in the carpet. The top is a very expensive fabric top done in the original blue color. The aluminum siding is original but very nice - some small nicks. The paint is flawless.
A couple of small issues with the car since the owner passed away: (1) there is a small oil leak in the area of the oil filter housing. (2) one or more wheel cylinders may be stuck from sitting since 2013.
The car is located in Riverside California and is available for inspection by appointment.
