Vehicle Description

HAVING BEEN BORN IN 1952....AND ALWAYS HAVING AN OBSESSION WITH CARS SINCE I WAS TRYING TO SWALLOW THEM....I ACTUALLY REMEMBER ALL OF THE HUB-BUB (AS MY MOTHER WOULD SAY) THAT 1957 BROUGHT TO THE AUTOMOTIVE WORLD ...... EVERY MANUFACTURER BROUGHT OUT THE BIG GUNS IN "57"..... FORD WITH THE BIG FINNED BIRD . CHRYSLER WITH SOME TRULY HUGE FINS ..CADILLAC WITH ITS FIN SPROUTS DEVELOPING INTO A SUPER FIN AND OF COURSE THE ICONIC 57 CHEVY WITH ITS PERFECTLY PROPORTIONED FINS ...... THE ONLY REAL CONTRARIAN IN THE CROWD WAS STODGY OLD OLDSMOBILE... AND THEY DEVELOPED ROUND OR OVAL TUNNELS TO CREATE GRACEFUL LINES ON THEIR DERRIERE...... I REMEMBER THAT BY "65" THE OLDSMOBILE WAS BRANDED AS YOUR MOM'S OR YOUR GRANDMOTHER'S CAR, MAYBE NOT EVEN "YOUR FATHER'S OLDSMOBILE" .....
FAST FORWARD A FEW DECADES TO CURRENT DAY I AM NOT 5 NOR 15 NOR EVEN 30 I AM NOW 63 YEARS OLD AND I LOVE THIS CAR !!!!
THE SKY BLUE BODY COLOR WITH A WHITE CONVERTIBLE TOP IS STUNNING...THE INTERIOR IS A TUTONE BLUE AND WHITE COMBINATION THAT WILL BRING TEARS TO YOUR EYES ........ THIS CAR IS AMAZING !!!!
GOOD OL DOC. OLDSMOBILE DIDN'T WANT TO BE LEFT OUT IN THE COLD AS FAR AS PERFORMANCE OPTIONS THAT MIGHT BE AVAILABLE FROM OTHER MANUFACTURERS SO HE MADE AVAILABLE ,ON THE '98' A J2 OPTION THAT GAVE THE LUCKY CONSUMER THREE TWO BARREL CARBURETORS FOR AROUND 85 .00 ...SMART CHOICE..!!!! THIS CAR HAS THEM..... AND EVERY OTHER OPTION THAT I COULD FIND ....DUAL SPOTLIGHTS, 3 SPEED HYDRAMATIC TRANSMISSION, POWER WINDOWS,POWER TOP ,TWILIGHT SENTINEL , POWER STEERING AND WONDER BAR RADIO !!!!
SOME OF THESE CARS HAVE "BROKEN THE BANK" LATELY AND THE MARKET ONLY SEEMS TO BE GOING UP...... ONE #1 CAR RECENTLY SOLD FOR 185,000 DOLLARS AND SEVERAL OF THESE CARS HAVE BROKEN THE 125,000 CEILING AND CURRENTLY THE "AVERAGE " HAS BEEN WELL OVER 100,000"
WE BELIEVE THIS CAR TO BE WAY ABOVE AVERAGE IN CONDITION , EQUIPMENT AND COLOR AND CONSERVATIVELY PRICED.
