For Sale: 1921 Oldsmobile Touring LHS in Lebanon, Missouri

Vehicle Description

Oldsmobile re-introduced the Model 43 for the 1921 model year after a brief absence as the Model 43A.  Initially the Model 43 was intended as an entry-level vehicle designed to compete with Chevrolet and Ford’s Model T, but with General Motors taking control of Chevrolet in 1917 the company decided to take Oldsmobile to a more upscale level.

The Model 43A featured a longer wheelbase than the early Model 43’s, sharing a frame with Buick.  A four-seat touring car, the vehicle was still powered by a four-cylinder engine.  Sales were brisk for the 1921 and 1922 model years, as over 28,000 Model 43A’s were produced making it a success for Oldsmobile and General Motors.

This 1921 Oldsmobile Model 43A was purchased by the present owner in June 1992.  An ardent supporter of the local school district and their athletic programs, the car was decorated using easily removed vinyl decals and for several years was a mainstay at the school’s home football games and towed a propane-fueled cannon that was fired to celebrate touchdowns and field goals.

The four-cylinder engine and three-speed manual transmission are operable and the car runs and drives, with mechanical brakes stopping the vehicle.  The yellow paint was applied under the present ownership to commemorate the school colors of yellow and black.  The interior is intact but could use some attention to present as nicely as the exterior.  (NOTE:  An interesting aside for trivia buffs, a 1921 Oldsmobile Model 43 was the vehicle used to create the famous Beverly Hillbillies truck from the 1960’s CBS television series.  That vehicle now resides in the Ralph Foster Museum on the campus of College of the Ozarks in Point Lookout, MO.)

Because of the number of vehicles we represent we cannot drive every vehicle for long distances.  These vehicles have been part of static displays for long periods of time, in some cases for decades, and are subject to the flaws and imperfections consistent with that.  While we do our best to disclose all issues we known about a vehicle in our advertising, these are old cars and something that has always worked in the past might not function properly today.  Please check the requirements of your state regarding the licensing and registration of classic vehicles and make sure the vehicle you are looking at meets those if applicable.  Unless otherwise noted, all vehicles represented by Evergreen Digital Showroom possess a clean (non-branded) title which will be provided the new buyer when purchase funds clear our financial institution.  Virtually all our vehicles are sold as mileage exempt due to their age.  We do not warranty any vehicle, nor any part of the vehicle including air conditioning systems, brake systems, electrical systems and gauges, fuel systems, accessories or powertrain components.

These are old vehicles and it is very common for them to require certain maintenance and upkeep for them to be operational.  In many cases issues with leaks may develop when being driven after a long period of not being used.  This is common, as classic cars at some point will leak fluids.  For this reason, we do not encourage buyers to attempt driving their purchase home as we cannot guarantee functional reliability of these vehicles.  We strongly encourage prospective buyers to be sure they are comfortable with these issues before purchasing a classic car.

Descriptions of vehicles represented by Evergreen Digital Showroom are intended to be informational in nature and do not in any way constitute any sort of warranty, expressed or implied.   Again, these vehicles are presented “as-is, where-is” without guarantee or warranty.  Vehicles manufactured prior to 1981 will likely not be included in the databases of companies such as CarFax and AutoCheck that provide vehicle history information to consumers.   If you have specific questions regarding a vehicle we urge you to contact us at 417-532-8000.
