For Sale: 1940 Oldsmobile Antique in Kentwood, Michigan

Vehicle Description

I have always thought that the Pre-War 70 Series Oldsmobiles had amazing styling and were perfect Pre-War starter collectable cars. 1940 was also a very big year for Oldsmobile and GM as this was the first year for the Hydra-Matic Transmission. Being new, they did not sell many due to skepticism however it had a lot of people looking and would soon win over the population years later. The 230 6 Cylinder is as reliable as they come and were known now and then for smoothness, torque and overall decent fuel economy. You will be getting a screaming deal on this car at this price as I feel that the paint work alone today would cost what you can own this car for. This Olds has been gone through from bumper to bumper with what I think is very nice paint, all new window and door seals etc.... , and all the glass is in great condition. This Olds starts easy every single time and idles instantly, its smooth and quiet and has plenty of power. The underside has some surface rust on some of the components as to be expected, the tires and brakes are good and the Hydramatic is very smooth. The interior is good, as is the headliner. This vehicle is on consignment from a Oldsmobile collector and rumor has it that there is a folder of paperwork including restoration that needs to be tracked down. If you are in the market for a very nice Pre-war collectable that is ready to be enjoyed either on tours or parades or just to look at, then this car needs a second look.
