1965 Oldsmobile Ninety-EightUp for auction is my brothers verynice1965 Oldsmobile 98 convertible. . The car sports its original425 CDI / 370 HP engine( its that or a 425/360 HP ). The car has only 89,090 on the odometer and my brother is the 3rd registered owner of the car.The Oldsmobile 98 convertibleis very rare having a limitedproduction run in 1965which was a one year only body style so you don't see these cars very often. She is highly original with only one repaint. The car is licensed and tagged in Tennessee in my bothers name and comes with a clear Tennessee state issued title. Also, the car is fully insured through Hagerty Classic Cars with an agreed value of $23,000. The car is now located at my house in Stanfield, NC 28163. Mechanically:The car runs and drives great.The car starts right up with no issues or smokeand purrs like a kitten.The car wasjustserviced this weekwhich included new sparks plugs,carburetor tuned and balanced,oil changed, new oil filter, new valve cover gaskets,new air filter,new windshield wiper blades, radiator coolant changedand all fluids toppedoff. Also,about 3000 miles ago the ignition wires, distributor cap, rotor button, fuel pump and all belts where replacedThetransmission shifts smoothlyup / down through all gears with no noises or clunks. The cardrives true and straight and the steering is tight and responsive.At this time I know of nothing mechanically the car needs other that to be driven and enjoyed.
