1961 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight

I purchased the car in 2001 from a well known low mileage collector in Miami, FL. The car had 19,000 what I believe to be original miles when I purchased it. It now has +/- 22,000 miles. The car has been garage kept as long as I have owned the car and is overall in very good shape.. We no longer use or have a place to store the car, so it is time to sell.

Below I will give you my best description of what issues I am aware of:

The car runs great and has no known mechanical issues. I recently had a transmission leak which has been repaired. It was a loose transmission line, nothing wrong with the transmission.The interior is all original. The cloth seats do have a fair amount of wear. The seat fill in the rear seat needs to be added to/replaced. Mice did get into the car and used seat cushion material in their nest elsewhere in my garage.

The car was repainted prior to my purchase and does have imperfections on the hood. The windshield has a slight scratch on the driver side from the wiper blade bracket (someone prior to my purchase must have run wipers for a second without a wiper blade). The front passenger window crank does work, but needs work. The vent window on drivers side also works but needs some work. All other windows function fully.

The chrome is all in fine shape and there is no body damage or rust.

Overall it is a great car and fun to drive. You get plenty of looks and comments from others on the road.

Would love to sell to someone who will enjoy it as much as we have.

The car is for sale locally and I reserve the right to end the auction at any time.
