1949 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight

Low Reserve - 1949 Oldsmobile 98 convertible. I am the second owner of the car. Was a gift to Miss Indiana in 1949.
Runs and drives. Carburetor needs a tuneup as I tried and got all out of sync. All new suspension (over $8k of suspension work just done). All new arm shocks, ew engine & transmission mounts. New radiator (those who know these cars knows how expensive those are). Paint was a respray in 1980. it is OK but not perfect and has some spots. Engine compartment very clean. All original numbers matching car.
The Oldsmobile 98 had all of the upgrades. Power top and windows (hydraulic), ower seats (YES hydraulic seats). I just rebuilt the hydraulic system so all is good there (new pumps on the top, ines etc). The convertible top has no tears or rips and closes securely.
No rust on this car. I did replace the spare tire well because of some water that in the spare tire compartment. Frame is great.

The interior looks to be a recover and has some flaws but looks ok. Clean title.
