1956 Oldsmobile 88 Convertible. My grandfather has owned this car for 35 years and started this restoration, but due to health reasons he needs to sell. Has the original 324 v8 engine and automatic transmission. The engine was running and driving 15 years ago when the car was parked. The carburetor gummed up about 3 years ago. He believes the flywheel isn't right because there's a vibration when the car idled. Says the carb needs to be cleaned and gas tank cleaned and new gas. New tires, new windshield, freshly rechromed front bumper/grill. He repainted the interior about 6 years ago. He has a rear bumper from a donor car. The body is ready to paint. The hood, top bows and seat are also included, just not pictured. The hood is in primer. The top bows are painted. The seat is original and needs to be reupholstered. He does not have the canvas top or a carpet kit for the car, but everything else is there for the car. I can take more pictures for serious buyers. Clean title. Asking $27,500 or best offer. Located in Thief River Falls, MN.
