1931 Oldsmobile Deluxe Patrician Sedan

Some classics just do it right when it comes to making sure they look authentic without appearing too tired or over-restored. This 1931 Oldsmobile hits this sweet spot, hich is particularly tough to accomplish with a pre WWII-sedan.This was built at the dawn of The Great Depression, ut Oldsmobile refused to lose its flair. The Venetian Blue has been updated over this car's long lifetime, ut that's hard to tell because it's always been done with period-correct lacquer. The white pinstripe helps set up the great-looking whitewall tires and white spoke wheels. Plus, ne of the best-looking features of this era was having the spare tire mounted within the front fender, nd this one has it on both sides so everyone can admire this premium touch. The black fenders complete the right appearance for this period, ut this also gets the premium treatment with the optional matching trunk hanging off the rear. The front end looks distinctive with dual horns and amber accessory lights. Even the brightwork is done perfectly. It's beginning to show a bit of patina so that everyone at the car show knows you are trying to keep this rolling art as original as possible.Open the suicide doors, nd it still looks like 1931 inside. The cloth was replaced a while ago just enough to erase decades of use, ut long enough time has passed so peering eyes will likely assume its all original. It's tan color, ntricate pattern, nd opera lighting in the rear once again feels like this car was out to buck the Depression feeling. The dash panel has the same great blue as the exterior, nd each pod of the full gauge package looks like a miniature sculpture. More importantly, ow often did you get readouts for water, il, nd power back in the early '30s? Classic motoring also means a large grippy steering wheel and real wood in the trim.Under the hood is exactly the kind of engine bay you'd expect from a time machine that's approaching its 85th birthday. The 197 cubic-inch straight six motor show all signs of being original, nd the dark green paint sets it off nicely for the car shows without being too flashy. This car has barely crested 25,000 original miles (believed to be), hich means it has some interesting potential for the ultimate survivor title. But then again, his car is for more than just being fun while parked. This classic Olds is a true runner with a three-speed manual transmission that's geared to get you around town with ease, nd even the gas tank was swapped for a new stainless steel one to keep everything running smoothly.This beautiful sedan is one you'll be proud to show off, nd when people ask for more information, e'll even give you maintenance records and restoration receipts to keep them impressed. Time to get your hands on a stunning blue time capsule.
