Absolutely exceptional and stunning example of this top-of-the-line for 1949 and virtually all stock and completely rust and accident free DeLuxe 2-door 6-passenger convertible with its original 303.7cid/135HP V8 engine matched to its original Hydra-Matic Drive transmission! Finished in ‘Nankeen Cream’ color paint over a Burgundy and Tan Broadcloth interior with a Tan convertible power soft top and a matching tan tonneau cover!
The original factory options of the car included: 303 CID 135HP inline V8 engine, Hydra-Matic Drive 4-speed transmission, air heater & defroster ($67), DeLuxe radio ($96), electric clock, turn signals, rear fender skirts. DeLuxe Series additions of: power hydraulic windows & front seat adjustment, power top, DeLuxe steering wheel, chrome wheel ring trims, rear seat center armrest.
The recipient of a full frame-off restoration completed approximately 10 years ago with a rebuilt 303 Rocket V-8 engine & rebuilt Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, rebuilt suspension, brakes, fuel system, and hydraulics. Reportedly driven only very sparingly since its restoration. Acres of chrome, including the chromed wire wheels wrapped in wide whitewall tires, complete the attractive cosmetics of this legendary Oldsmobile.
This is one very desirable car for any classic American car collector or obviously any Oldsmobile enthusiast to add to his collection and a sure-fire investment that’s sure to appreciate over the years for any classic American car collector!
