Description
 
The 1949 Oldsmobile Futuramic 88 (F88) Fastback Deluxe Club Coupe has arrived.



This is a 100% untouched original Survivor with only 56985 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 runs just as good.



This multiple NASCAR winning car has been credited as one of the first

Muscle cars and was there at NASCAR when it all began.



Many of the cars released in the years immediately following the conclusion of WWII were slightly revised prewar models. But not the 49 Oldsmobile Futuramic 88. Its styling was clean, simple, futuristic -- Futuramic



In 1949, Oldsmobile brought out the first overhead valve Rocket V8 and the rest is history. The engine in this car, re-wrote history starting at NASCAR winning the NASCAR Championship in 1949 and again in 1950 and 1951. Of the nine Grand National Championship races, the F88 won six of them. This car is a true NASCAR champion and a significant part of the American automobile and racing history.



We found this car 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.



The interior is immaculate. The odometer reads just under 57000 and is correct. The seats are like new without a single tear. Gauges are clear and all work properly. It is equipped with the famous Hydra-Matic automatic transmission on the column that shifts perfectly.



The engine is a 303ci Rocket V8. The first year for the famous Rocket engine. it runs beautifully. It starts right up using its original 6volt system. The idle is smooth and quiet. it stops as it should and needs nothing.



The body is 100% rust free and 100% original. 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 your looking at. There is a small dent that is shown in the photo as well as a paint chip in the front of the car by the front drivers side headlight (also shown). Everything else is amazing for a 65 years old car. All chrome and trim are in excellent condition. All badges, hood ornaments and emblems are still on the car.



Features include the large sun visors over the windshield, backup lights, AM radio, standard turn signals and heater. All optional equipment in 1949. Lights & gauges all work properly.
