1949 Oldsmobile 98

Sweet car! First year of the Futuramic styling with the original Olds rocket 303 engine - the one that started it all and forever changed Detroit engine design. Florida car most of its life. I have owned it about a year with the original intentions of hot rodding/resto-modding, but just can’t bring myself to do it.

Since I have owned it, I have had the master cylinder and all four wheel cylinders replaced, put in a new fuel tank, and converted the non-functioning hydraulic windows to electric. Before me, I was told it had a recent valve job,transmission and carb rebuild but very little use in the past 10 years. Had a mid-90s restoration included some minor floor/trunk repair, paint and interior. It still shows very well but is showing its age in a few spots. No rust anywhere on the car but normal wear you would expect for a car painted 20 years ago. Interior, again is in great shape for its age-with some very minor areas of wear. Top is in good shape, plastic window a little cloudy and hydraulics works fine. Car runs and drives as it should and collects tons of appreciation and attention. Don't buy this if you don't want to be noticed.

The following is not currently working- wipers, clock, radio.

I encourage you to inspect car before bidding as this is a 67 year old used car and does have some flaws. You are bidding to buy not inspect. I am 30 min from Columbus, OH airport. I prefer all questions to come via ebay – Message me and I will provide my cell # and email if you would like to discuss further. $1000 deposit required within 48 hours and balance within 10 days. Car is for sale locally, so I reserve the right to end the auction at any time.

Thanks and good luck - Rich
