This 1972 Oldsmobile 98 has to be one of the coolest and least expensive ways to get attention at the survivor car shows. A bright and factory-correct hardtop sedan with a big and original 455 V8 under the hood is defiantly an irresistible classic. But then you see all the paperwork, and you realize just how great this deal is.
These cars are iconic cars that defined the 1970s. Big four-door sedans that still retained the pillarless hardtop style have their own stratosphere of cool that's always expanding. And when it's presented in what's believed to be the original factory-applied Bamboo paint with tan vinyl top, then this is a great survivor (of course, it also doesn't hurt that this car is a close ringer for Evil Dead movie fans.) When you see the paint's shine and feel how well all four doors shut with authority, you'll realize this is a small miracle. After all, a car like this is becoming a rarity as most were used up as family haulers and salesman callers. Instead, here's one that's complete with all its trim, fender skirts, factory hubcaps, and everything else that makes it a stunning survivor.
The intricate button top and embossed beige vinyl greets you when you open any door. It's the kind of pattern that you only get to see once – when it's original. The 98 is the top end luxury machine from Oldsmobile, so you get to choose to fill this sedan with up to five family and friend passangers. Or fold down the armrests on both rows and get a zip code worth of individual comfort. The wood paneling, doors, carpets, and dash are a marvel at how well they present today. You sit behind the factory steering wheel, and the driver-focused instruments encapsulates with its luxury. You have within an easy reach controls for the power seat, power locks, and AM/FM/8-track stereo (don't worry if you don't have any 8 track tapes, because this comes with a full case for your enjoyment.) Best of all, this is a power windows car with air conditioning. So with the touch of a few buttons, you can showcase the best feature of this pillarless hardtop, and stay cool while you do it.
While this sedan has been impressive so far, the best treat is under the hood. That's the numbers-matching 455 cubic-inch Rocket V8 filling the engine bay. Yes, this is the same powerplant that made the Olds 442 famous, and it even has a Rochester four-barrel carburetor. With this kind of torque in hand, it makes moving this large sedan an easy proposition. Add in power steering, front disc brakes, and a three-speed automatic transmission, and we bet you're already imagining all the places you will go in this luxurious and powerful Olds.
As you look through the pictures, you'll see a ton of paperwork that comes with this sale. It even includes proof that it was sold new less than a couple of hours from our showroom. Now that's a great survivor story, and on an Oldsmobile this cool, you know it won't be hanging around our showroom for long. Call now!!
