Sharp looking 50s convertible that's affordable!

Great looking 50s convertible! This is an affordable car that will turn heads.

EXTERIOR: This is a great 10 footer meaning from ten feet away it looks gorgeous, when you get up close you can find flaws. It shows well because the body is very straight and fits nicely. The paint is a very polished, glossy finish. Over all the chrome and moldings are all shiny and straight, but also not perfect. It has the big mouth grill, rocket hood ornament and emblems and optional spotlights with mirrors. The white convertible top is in good shape. Windshield is new. BF Goodrich radial white wall tires are on red rims with original hubcaps.

INTERIOR: It looks like it was restored real nice awhile ago. The seats are firm and upholstery fits real nice. The door panels are nice, clean and straight. The metal has been repainted. The visors are excellent. The chrome across the dash looks very good. There there are some cracks in the steering wheel. Red seatbelts were installed front and back.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: 324-240 hp motor with 4 barrel carb, correct air cleaner and rocket valve covers. Everything looks real nice like it's been taken apart and restored. The fire wall was painted red. The generator looks restored, blower motor looks new. It features power steering and power brakes. The battery is new with a disconnect and it is bolted down properly.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It's not new but it's respectable. It has a complete, original liner kit. It does have a jack and spare. The well liner looks new.

UNDERSIDE: The bottom of this car is very respectable. The floors, inner rockers and braces are clean, smooth metal painted semi-gloss black. The bottom of the motor is clean and painted. In 1956 the big story at Oldsmobile was a major redesign of the Hydramatic (Oldsmobile calls it the Jetaway). It shifts better and has "park" like modern cars. It has a custom aluminum fuel tank. The dual exhaust system with glass pack mufflers looks recent.

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.
