1949 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight

Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight .Where do I begin? This is an amazing opportunity to purchase a major future Ridler contender with most of the metal fabrication work completed. It is really down to finishing up some details. Let me first say that because of the caliber of this car and the potential for this car to compete for the Ridler award in Detroit that I am limited on a public aspect as to how much of the car can be shown here. I am happy to flood you with photos to any interested parties on a private level. The car started with a completely custom chassis with all C-6 Corvette suspension along with the LS engine and Automatic rear transaxle. The body has been completely reshaped with custom metal work done largely by Marcel and Son's including a completely scratchbuilt deck lid. All bright work is being custom recast into brass. Wheels are 20" one off designed to emulate the original hub caps. The underside is set up with complete undercarriage cover panels. the top is being engineered to work much like a modern top with a convertible top lid to house the top. This will be an amazing vehicle with over a quarter million already spent on the build. It is unfortunate that I am having to move this car as it would be a lot of fun to finish, however, I have to take advantage of the opportunity to purchase the property that my business is located on. Please call me with any inquiries or questions. Thank you for looking. Kevin @ Kevin's Restoration
