The factory paint color is called Jade Gold (GM code S) which is actually a darker green color. The paint is absolutely gorgeous. There are no dings or dents and there never was. All chrome and trim pieces are perfect..... perfect! All four original T3 headlights are still on the car and work as they should. All glass is original including the vent windows.
The interior is also, perfect! Not a mark anywhere! No rips, open seems, not even dirt or a single stain to the seating, headliner, or carpet. The seating material is a work of 60s art and detail. The dash looks like it did when it left the factory in 1968 as does the dash pad. Everything works as it should however the gas gauge is off a bit. Other than that, the interior is flawless! The radio plays clear, the wipers, lights, signals and heat all work perfectly. The heater is hot and the air conditioning is cold. The windows roll up & down easily and the seats slide easily. Windows and seats are not power however it does have power steering and power breaks. There are seat belts for 6 passengers and shoulder straps in front. The mileage is accurate at just over 31650. When the windows are closed, you can literally have a conversation outside and not hear a thing from the inside. Thats Oldsmobile for you!
The smooth 455ci engine starts instantly and idles silently. You will not even know it is running when inside. Response is immediate and there is plenty of power in any gear. Brakes and tires are completely roadworthy and the power steering makes driving easy. The engine looks like new and has never been detailed.
The trunk is just like the rest of the car, perfect. The spare tire is the original and has never been taken down. The little rubber tips are still on the tire. The undercarriage is clean and 100% rust free.
The big plaque in the trunk shows the second owners name and some of the options and special features of the car. The second owner bought the car in 2006 from the original owners and kept records of every fill-up from the first day of his ownership. The AACA award plaque is on the front grill of the car. It also comes with its original Protect-o Plate, owners manual and build sheet.
This is a car that you must see to believe. Obviously we cant say enough about this car. Come on in and see for what all the fuss is about. You wont be disappointed!

Open-wheel racing cars come in a variety of sizes, and that includes the size of the engine and the vehicle itself. For example, in road racing, drivers often start in smaller and less powerful Formula Vee or Formula Ford cars and work their way up to Grand Prix racing. On America’s oval tracks, the progression […]
You don’t have to own or even ride motorcycles to appreciate them, and especially those of an older vintage, as mechanical marvels or for their amazing sculptural designs. And if we revere the pioneers of the automobile, what sort of pedestal should we reserve for those who first challenged what passed as roadways on two […]
Automakers boast of their vehicles’ lap times around the Nurburgring or over a 1-mile straightaway, and recently of the range of their electric-powered fleet. But Mercedes-Benz is claiming an automotive record of another sort as a pair of its Unimog U 5023 off-road vehicles have claimed driving at a height of nearly 21,962 feet. The […]

The kit follows the company’s earlier SV-inspired wing for the Lamborghini Aventador and its Classic Countach wing for the Lamborghini Huracan. The company says […]
Resto-mods have become hot commodities in the collector car market, offering the style and splendor of vintage vehicles with the drivability and reliability of the modern stuff. And while mid-century American cars are fading in value as their constituency ages, there are those 1950s cars that still excite any generation, such as the ‘55 Chevy. […]
There was much trepidation going into Arizona Auction Week 2020 following the bummer results from the Monterey collector car sales in August, when gross figures were down by nearly a third, and after a disappointing 2019 in general. But the numbers are in (mostly) and the overall results for Arizona’s collector car extravaganza and its […]

When is a motorcycle not a motorcycle but instead a car? Vintage motorcycle enthusiasts likely would say that the Ner-A-Car came closest. Carl Nearcher’s 2-wheelers were built on a low-slung steel chassis and had center-hub steering and some other car-like details. They were built in England and the U.S. in the 1920s, and there were […]
There are resto-mods and electra-mods and now we appear to need a name for what TDF is doing, taking Formula One racing chassis and installing its own powertrain with the promise of providing customers with “a package that is more reliable, useable and affordable to maintain.” That package is is TDF-1, which uses a 2011 […]
