1955 Oldsmobile Ninety-EightHere is one of the best restored 1955 Oldsmobiles in the country. Top of the line and loaded with features. It also comes with an interesting, documented story. It has had the same owner since 1956. We have photos, original title, invoice and warranty from 1956. Because of the personal attachment to this car, the owner spent an irrational amount of money restoring it to high, high standards. He has since passed and now you have the opportunity to own an incredible car.
EXTERIOR: Desirable hardtop design with no window pillar in the middle. Factory born, rare color combination: bronze- shell beige. The body is amazing. It is absolutely straight with no damage or rust. The paint is polished like glass, it looks like you could reach your arm into the paint. Better then new! Literally every piece of stainless is straightened and polished like chrome. Every single piece of chrome has show finish. I mean every piece- the wiper base is rechromed the arms and blades are polished. The frames around the windows were rechromed. All new glass with factory light tint. Every gasket, window seal and weatherstrip was replaced. It has optional door edge guards and fuel door trim. The jambs are meticulously restored, latches and hardware look new. The rims are painted to match the car, hubcaps are pristine and the whitewalls are reproduction of the originals.
INTERIOR: Amazing! The seats have been rebuilt, they are firm like new. Correct upholstery with chrome flecks and piping fit without wrinkle. Door panels match the seats, both are beautiful. Correct tight loop carpet. Overhead it has new white perforated headliner and matching visors. It has the chrome ribs and all the chrome trim around it looks new. There is a cool looking ashtray on the back of the back seat, you open it and it even looks new inside. The dash area is not just very nice, it's restored like brand. It has optional padded dash and it was professionally restored. It looks to me like every piece of chromeon the dash was sent out and replated. The gauges are restored like new, even the clock works. The metal trim was repainted smooth and glossy. Inside the glove box looks new, the steering wheel is perfectly restored including the chrome horn ring. It has wonderbar radio with a foot control button on the floor. I even laid on the floor and looked up under the dash, no surprise it's restored like new too. The metal that nobody will see is painted, heater box was restored, new firewall insulation. All of the wiring is new and it is updated with a modern fuse block with push in fuses. The interior lights work. It is as close to perfection as you can get.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Restored like brand new. The Rocket 324 4 barrel V-8 runs as smooth as a mouse in slippers. Every component looks like new. The motor was neatly painted the correct green and has Oldsmobile Rocket painted yellow on the valve covers. All new wiring. Features include power steering, power brakes, electric wipers and windshield washers. The firewall is painted body color with a glossy finish. The trim tag is polished. The nuts and bolts are new. New battery with proper bracket. It looks like it did the day it rolled off the showroom.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Pristine metal is painted a smooth, glossy finish. The spare rim is painted and has a 5th matching white wall tire for a spare. The jack has been restored and all of it is mounted properly. Trunk light works, new wiring, weatherstrip is like new.
UNDERSIDE: The bottom of this car has been cleaned up and painted very nicely. The body was off the frame. The floors and frame are smooth clean metal. The brakes have all been redone at the time of restoration, emergency brake cable system is hooked up. It has a correct exhaust system. The fuel system has been replaced. It looks like the front end was go e through. It has correct spiral shocks in back. Rear leaf springs look new.
The restoration is amazing. It is so nice I feel privileged to drive it. I took it home and it drove like new. If you are like me and really appreciate high quality, this car will make you very happy!
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
