Current bid: $8,507.57
This 1969 Oldsmobile 442 convertible may have seen better days, but it is numbers matching and has everything for a complete restoration. The car is obviously bruised and battered, but has been stored in a barn for 23 years and for that factors is in remarkable condition.
The engine itself does run but only for a short period of time and does have a faulty water pump. Although the engine bay is scruffy, everything is here and in working order. The convertible top will need completely replacing, but the interior itself is in remarkably good condition and almost looks like it just needs a clean up from a distance. There are a few splits in the seams here and there, but things could be far worse on a vehicle like this.
The body itself is said to have just surface rust and the images don’t show any signs of any big rust holes, but the irony here is that most of the panels look dented or bruised rather than rusted. The car also is said to include – ‘chromed bumpers, exhaust tips and hood louvers, new top boot, side trim.’ There is also a hood, door and dash if needed, but these aren’t included in the sale.
Overall, this Oldsmobile has plenty here to make a great restoration project and for just over $8,500 this Oldsmobile would look spectacular as completely restored vehicle.
