Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is very pleased to be able to offer
one of Oldsmobile's crown jewels, this absolutely gorgeous 1961
Oldsmobile Starfire convertible! The Starfire was the
top-of-the-line Oldsmobile in 1961, and was available only as a
convertible. Performance cars were just coming into their own and
Oldsmobile jumped in with a sporty convertible that packed a
muscular 394 CID "Starfire" V/8 powerplant, special trim and
beautiful bucket seats to create what became known as "the
gentleman's express". Each example of this Oldsmobile was very
nicely equipped, with plenty of standard features including a
console-mounted tachometer, power steering, power brakes, power
windows and a power convertible top to name a few. Only
approximately 7,600 Starfire convertibles were ever produced and
they were noted as being the first full-size American production
vehicle to feature an automatic shifter on the floor, and this
example of that shows very well! Finished in a rich Garnet Mist
metallic over Garnet red interior with a maroon canvas top, the
Starfire is a time capsule of classic Americana when style &
elegance ruled the roads. From the "Jet Era" of automotive styling,
the 1961 Starfire has the stylings that made Oldsmobile's top of
the line convertible an instant classic. These early 60's
Oldsmobile's have really become highly sought after in recent years
and this one will be no exception.
