The paint, body lines, chrome and upholstery is absolutely amazing. It is equipped with the famous Olds Rocket V-8, 303 cubic inch with 135 hp and a Hydramatic transmission. aThe convertible top, power windows and seats are operated by a single hydraulic system. Options include dual spotlights and ultra rare bumper guards.Oldsmobile once again was a pioneer when, for the 1949 model, they introduced their Rocket engine, which used an overhead valve V8 design rather than the flathead "straight-eight" design which prevailed at the time. This engine produces far more power than the other engines that were popular during that era, and found favor with hot-rodders and stock car racers. The basic design, with a few minor changes, endured until Oldsmobile redesigned their V8 engines in the mid-1960s.
