1968 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 W-30 Frame Off Project

What you see is a complete frame off restoration that was started at a shop and not finished. The shop that had the car closed down and the car was put in storage and I picked it up. The body was a rust free car that needed very little body work.The car was taken off the frame and the frame has been restored and painted. This car is a real W-30 with buckets and a console, rally gauges, and a wood wheel. None of these parts were with the car. What you see is what you get, no other parts. There is no engine or transmission. The car has a new trunk lid, but no hood. It looks like a factory automatic (which is kind of rare) that was converted to manual and is now in the process of going back to original. As you can see in the pictures the console bracketappears to be that of an automatic and also original to the car. The tunnel has already been patched. Installed in the car are new red inner fender wells.The old pair were junk, as you can see one in the back of one of the pictures.I don't think you will find another car this clean, if you have a rusty project this is perfect for you.Just restoring the frame alone is a big cost, add in a clean body with all of the body work done and you can see someone has spent some money.All you need is a hood and you're basically ready for paint.
