For Sale: 1969 Oldsmobile Toronado in Jefferson, Wisconsin


Vehicle Description

The man that bought this car was working at a local Cadillac-Oldsmobile-GMC dealership when he ordered it. He worked there for 30 years after buying his first and only new car. He preferred to drive older used pickup trucks that came in on trade. He wasn’t a fancy fellow. Rather, he was modest and hard-working. His hands were dirtied everyday. But he was in love. He ordered this car to impress his girl. He ordered it without many expensive options, but he did order it with the factory trailering package. He planned to tow a boat and take his girl fishing. Well, things didn’t work out. She left him and he has been single ever since. He drove the truck to work, rode motorcycle when possible and just didn’t drive the Toronado much at all. He was responsible enough to exercise the car. He stored it on blocks and controlled the humidity. All five tires were rotated and they were still on the car when I bought it. They look great for being almost 50 years old, but I feared a blow-out. New radials are installed, but the originals were retained. Other then the spark plugs, battery and exhaust manifold donuts, this car is as it was sold new. He rebuilt the original water pump this last spring, as it was weeping. The rest of the car is just like it was built. There is no rust. There are a few spots that were touched up. An old tube of touch-up paint was in the love box. He under-coated the chassis when new and again 40 years later. We have the original documents from the dealership, the original window sticker, the Protect-o-plate and dealer brochures. All original manuals, plus a service manual are included. The original title was forfeited in 1990 so he could get Collector Plates. In WI, they are permanent, with no renewal fee. We even found books of matches from the dealership. They were full. Nobody ever smoked in this car. There is an Oldsmobile banner in the trunk. He even had a pair of power window motors in inventory. Just in case. The interior is very nice. The original Oldsmobile floor mats have discolored from use. The seat backs show discoloration from UV rays. The seats, carpet, door panels and headliner are very nice. The engine bay is very original. It is clean, but not detailed. A pair of auxiliary driving lights reside behind the grill. He was very afraid of hitting an animal at night and damaging the car. The trunk is perfect. The jack is still in a cardboard enclosure. All components are present. Every feature works as it should. It is amazing how well. The rubber gaskets are pliable. The doors shut tight. There are two sets of keys, one being the originals. Eugene wasn’t lucky in love. But he gave it his best. This car cost him two years wages! And now you have the chance to own this great original Toronado. It is certainly a car to be proud of and show off.
