As time goes by you gotta wonder how many jewels like this are left ?? The amazing original trim and straight body lines are awe inspiring! Yes, this one looks as good and/or better in person! What a Sweetie Pie with around the world style! The Olds designers must have worked overtime creating the chrome & badges for these specimens! This Babe was built at the Oldsmobile plant in Southgate CA, and spent most of it's life in the Los Angeles area before being sold to a collector in Washington State about 10 years ago and is now residing in sunny Lake Havasu City, Arizona!!

She is a former showroom GM display car!At that time, it had a see-thru hood,all the chrome on the engine, such as the valve covers, vacuum lines, trans/oil dip sticks, battery cover, fan, pulleys, and fan shroud, are all 1950 chrome, done by the Oldsmobile division of GM. Under the hood resides it's original 303 CU IN engine, and 3 speed hydro-matic transmission.She even sports her original carb, generator, starter and radiator.It has been upgraded with dual exhaust with glass packs and has that wonderful Olds sound!

The Whistle Straight Body Color is a Seafoam green, and is almost identical to original 1950 Olds color.The Front/Rear bumpers have been re-chromed and the rest of the factory chrome is amazingly original! In order to achieve her sleek stance, she has been lowered with 2 Fatman Fabrication, front drop spindles (also known as dropped uprights)and the rear has been lowered 3 with new springs (original uprights and rear springs included).She rides perfectly and it does not affect the ride or front alignment. Finishing off that classic feel and smooth ride is new Coker Classic radials with wide white walls and 1953 Olds Fiesta spinners! It's original Rims, Hubcaps and Factory Fender Skirts are not installed but are included! Sporting all NEW Windshield, Front Door Glass and front/rear windshield gaskets! Hop inside to a wonderful NEW Interior and headliner, done inoriginal type material and style. All original dash trim is spectacular!

In closing, this is an exceptional survivor with an incredible presence!! Beauty's like this awaken old memories and are getting super hard to find! So step up and enjoy the ride!! Let the below known items and 3 web pages of detailed pictures tell the rest of the tale!! BUY NOW!!

Known Items: Adult Owned, Free and Clear Arizona Title. The exterior body is rock solid, professionally re-finished, whistle straight lines and the doors JUST CLICK!! Most of the factory chrome is superb with minor expected age/patina. The undercarriage is driver quality and the floor pans are solid originals with minor common repaired rust spots from the top side (see sub-page) due to wet carpet @ some time in her life. Starts, Runs and Drives Excellent!!! Now as I always say, Not Perfect and Not New (none are) but this car had me talking to myself as I visited myself in the wonderful trim! This is a NICE CAR!!
