1954 Oldsmobile Starfire Convertible

In the days before muscle cars and Italian sports cars, Oldsmobile’s were some of the hottest cars on the road. This 1954 Olds 98 Starfire convertible was not only a fantastic performer in 1954, but it also combined luxury and muscle in a way that still resonates today.

Oldsmobile first used the Starfire name on a one-of-a-kind dream car that was shown at the 1953 Motorama auto show. Named after the Lockhead F-94 Starfire jet fighter, the original Starfire was a 5-passenger convertible that had a fiberglass body, a 200 hp (150 kW) Rocket V8 engine, and a wraparound windshield like that used on the top-of-the-line and limited-production 1953 Fiesta 98 convertible. The 1954-1956 Oldsmobile Starfire convertibles were the most expensive Oldsmobile’s offered during those years.

As the top of the line, the Starfire was beautifully dressed in dramatic lines and the two-tone paint accents the stainless side trim, all of which remains in fantastic shape. A tailored interior creates a clean and sleek look that captures the essence of the 50’s. Other great details include the rocket-like hood ornament, the globe emblem on the hood and trunk, and the jet-exhaust-looking taillight assemblies that definitely reinforce the ''Rocket” aspect of Starfire 98.

This 98 Starfire would be perfect for someone who has the ability to redo what needs to be done. The car needs some TLC; previous poor work to floor pans was done, the rockers, trunk area, and wiring need attention, along with the transmission.
