Description
 
The 1949 Oldsmobile Futuramic 88 (F88) 2DR Fastback Club Sedan This is a 100% untouched original Survivor with only 57152 actual miles. Nothing has been touched, changed or modified. EVERYTHING is exactly as it was when it left the factory in 1949. It is in incredible condition, especially for its age. It looks great and best of all, runs perfectly in every respect. This multiple NASCAR winning car has been credited as one of the first muscle cars and The First, "King of NASCAR". This car was KING when it all began. In 1949, Oldsmobile brought out the first overhead valve Rocket V8 and the rest was history. The engine in this car, re-wrote history starting with NASCAR winning the NASCAR Championship in 1949 and again in 1950 and 1951. Of the 9 Grand National Championship races in 1949, the F88 won 6 of 9. In 1950 it won 10 of 19 and in 1951 won 21 of 40. The '49 F88 became "the car to beat" until it was finally defeated in 1952 by the Hudson Hornet. The '49 Olds F88 is a true NASCAR champion and a significant part of the American automobile and American racing history. Ironically, we found both, this 1949 Olds F88 and a 1952 Hudson Hornet sitting in a garage in upstate NY. Both have been run occasionally over the past few decades and were well maintained throughout that time. The owner has now decided to pass them on to someone who will enjoy them as he did over the last two decades. (You can see the Hudson Hornet on our website and other related sites where this car is advertised) The interior is immaculate. The odometer reads 57132 miles and is actual. The seats are like new without a single tear. Full Gauges and speedometer/odometer are clear and all work properly. The dash and all knobs & buttons are as good as new. Doors close easily and tightly with that low toned thud that you want to hear. All glass is original and still show the original markings including the year that is stamped on every piece. Even the amazing front split windshield has the original markings on both sides as does the operational vent windows. All windows including the vent windows open & close easily. The trunk has all its original material as well. Features include the large external sun visor over the windshield and the two standard internal visors, clock, AM radio, factory turn signals, floor heater, interior lighting, back-up lights, dual air vents, defogger, washer wiper (wiper motor has been upgraded to electronic). Most features were optional equipment in 1949. Lights & ALL gauges work properly. The engine is a 303ci Rocket V8 pushing 135hp. It is equipped with the famous Hydra-Matic automatic transmission on the column that shifts perfectly. 1949 was the first year for the famous Rocket engine. The engine has the factory original 8A116329 code. The original GM carburetor is clearly marked and still on the car along with the factory oil bath air cleaner. The original 6volt system and original generator get this car started immediately. The ride is incredible. Steering is easy and there is absolutely no pulling at all. Step on the gas and you can feel the response. The idle is smooth and quiet. It stops as it should and needs nothing. This car is easily capable of short and long trips to anywhere in complete comfort for both the driver and passengers. THIS car will be in the upcoming movie "Jersey Boys". A picture of the car in a scene is shown in the last photo. The body is rock solid, 100% rust free and 100% original. Factory Crest Blue paint has faded over the years but still has a nice shine as the pictures will show. Remember, this is not todays 2 stage paint you are looking at. The paint on this car is 65years old and looks great. Overall, the condition is amazing for a 65 years old 100% original SURVIVOR car. All chrome and trim are in excellent condition. All badges, hood ornaments and emblems are still on the car and maintain a deep shine with n
