1953 OLDSMOBILE 98
HOLIDAY COUPE


RECENTLY ACQUIRED FROM AN ESTATE LIQUIDATION SERVICE IS THIS BEAUTIFUL OLDSMOBILE. THIS CAR HAILS FROM COTTONWOOD, ARIZONA AND HAS ONLY VERY RECENTLY BEEN SHIPPED TO THE NORTHEAST FLORIDA AREA. I HAVE OWNERSHIP HISTORY SINCE NEW WITH CURRENT ARIZONA TITLE AND REGISTRATION . THE TRUE MILEAGE IS 125,XXX AND IS VERIFIED AND DOCUMENTED BY TITLE AND PRIOR SALES INVOICE. THE PREVIOUS OWNER TITLED THE OLDS IN SEPT OF 1982. THIS OLDS IS A GENUINE RUST FREE ARIZONA CAR SINCE NEW WITH GOOD DOCUMENTATION.

DESCRIPTION AND CONDITION

BODY AND PAINT

AS ONE WOULD EXPECT OF AN ARIZONA CAR, THE BODY IS RUST FREE. ALL BODY PANELS FIT WELL AND THERE IS NO SIGN OF PRIOR ACCIDENT DAMAGE. THERE ARE FEW SMALL PARKING LOT DINGS BUT NOTHING SERIOUS. THE PAINT IS AT LEAST 30 YEARS OLD AND HAS BEEN TOUCHED UP IN SPOTS. I'M SURE IT IS A SINGLE STAGE PAINT, PROBABLY AN ACRYLIC ENAMEL. BECAUSE THE CAR HAS ALWAYS BEEN GARAGE KEPT THE PAINT RETAINS A NICE GLOSS AND IS VERY PRESENTABLE. I WILL RATE IT AT A 7.5.

CHROME AND STAINLESS

THE OLDS RETAINS ALL OF IT'S ORIGINAL CHROME. THE GRILL AND BUMPERS ARE IN REMARKABLE CONDITION AND SHOW ONLY MINOR SCRATCHES AND WEAR. UNLESS A CONCOURSE RESTORATION WERE BEING DONE, RECHROMING WOULD NOT BE CALLED FOR. HOOD ROCKET IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION WITH THE EXCEPTION OF BEING BENT DOWNWARD SLIGHTLY FROM HOOD CLOSING. HOOD AND TRUNK GLOBE EMBLEMS ARE IN OK CONDITION. CHROME WINDOW FRAMES ARE EXCELLENT. TAILLIGHT BEZELS ARE EXCELLENT. ALL MID AND LOWER BODY STAINLESS IS DENT AND DING FREE AND IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH A BRILLIANT SHINE. STAINLESS AROUND WINDOWS AND WINDSHIELD IS VERY GOOD BUT COULD USE A POLISHING. FOUR FACTORY ORIGINAL FIESTA WHEEL COVERS IN MINT CONDITION.

UNDERCARRIAGE

THE UNDERCARRIAGE ON THE OLDS IS EXACTLY AS IT LEFT THE FACTORY IN 1953. IT HAS NO UNDERCOATING AND NO ONE HAS EVER GOTTEN UNDER THE CAR WITH A RATTLE CAN TO SPRAY PAINT EVERYTHING FLAT BLACK IN AN ATTEMPT TO HIDE THINGS. ONLY SOME MINOR SURFACE RUST. JUST AS SOLID AS THEY COME. YOU WILL BE PLEASED.

GLASS

EASY-EYE GLASS ORIGINAL FROM FACTORY WITH THE EXCEPTION OF WINDSHIELD AND DRIVERS DOOR GLASS. ALL IN VERY GOOD CONDITION WITH SOME VERY SMALL SPOTS OF DELAMINATION ON THE QUARTER WINDOWS.

INTERIOR

THE UPHOLSTERY I BELIEVE IS ALL ORIGINAL AND IN VERY GOOD CONDITION. CARPET HAS BEEN REPLACED WITH A NON ORIGINAL TYPE BUT LOOKS FINE. THE DASH IS IN BEAUTIFUL CONDITION WITH NICE ORIGINAL PAINT. THE BRIGHT WORK IS IN WONDERFUL CONDITION IN ALL AREA OF THE INTERIOR INSTRUMENT FACES ARE ALL VERY CLEAR AND NICE. HEAD LINER IS NICE, CHROME HEADLINER BOWS ARE EXCELLENT.

ENGINE AND LUGGAGE COMPARTMENTS


ENGINE COMPARTMENT IS CLEAN AND ENGINE IS PAINTED THE CORRECT FACTORY COLOR. ALL IS PRESENTABLE. FIREWALL IS IN NEED OF A REPAINT. TRUNK IS CLEAN AND NICE. IT HAS BEEN RECARPETED WITH A NON ORIGINAL MATERIAL. THE ORIGINAL JACK AND TIRE TOOL ARE IN PLACE AND IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. THE SPARE TIRE IS A SEARS ALLSTATE 670 15 WITH ORIGINAL LABEL AND HAS NEVER BEEN ON THE GROUND. FACTORY JACKING INSTRUCTION LABEL IS IN PLACE AND IN GREAT CONDITION.

ENGINE

THE ENGINE IS THE ORIGINAL 303 V-8 WITH FOUR BARREL CARBURETOR. IT IS NICELY PAINTED THE CORRECT GREEN COLOR. I MUST ASSUME THAT THE ENGINE HAS UNDERGONE A MAJOR OVERHAUL AT SOME POINT. IT RUNS VERY SMOOTH, MAKES GOOD POWER AND DOES NOT SMOKE OR USE OIL. IT SHOWS NO SIGN OF EXCESSIVE WEAR.

TRANSMISSION

THE OLDSMOBILE HAS THE LEGENDARY HYDROMATIC FOUR SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. IT SHIFTS SMOOTH AND SURE WITH NO SLIPPAGE. IT DOES OF COURSE LEAVE A DROP OR TWO OF FLUID ESPECIALLY WHEN SITTING A WHILE. JUST PARK IN YOUR NEIGHBOR'S DRIVEWAY AND YOU'LL BE FINE.

BRAKES STEERING AND SUSPENSION

BRAKE VACUUM BOOSTER AND MASTER CYLINDER HAVE BEEN RECENTLY PROFESSIONALLY REBUILT. LINING AND DRUM INSPECTION PERFORMED AT THAT TIME AND FOUND TO BE IN LIKE NEW CONDITION. BRAKE SYSTEM IS 100%. POWER STEERING WORKS AS IT SHOULD. ALL STEERING JOINTS ARE IN GOOD CONDITION. FRONT COIL SPRINGS AND REAR LEAF SPRINGS ARE ALL IN GOOD CONDITION 2 INCH REAR LOWERING BLOCKS HAVE BEEN INSTALLED TO LEVEL CAR. FRONT KNEE ACTION SHOCKS ARE IN GOOD CONDITION AS ARE THE REAR CONVENTIONAL SHOCKS. DUAL EXHAUST IS IN GOOD CONDITION WITH NO EXHAUST LEAKS.

LIGHTS

HEADLIGHTS, HIGH AND LOW BEAM, BRAKE LIGHTS, PARKING LIGHTS, TURN SIGNALS ALL WORK PROPERLY AS DO THE INTERIOR COURTESY LIGHTS AND ALL INSTRUMENT LIGHTS.

GAUGES AND INSTRUMENTS

SPEEDOMETER, OIL PRESSURE, GAS GAUGE, AMP GAUGE, HORN, AFTERMARKET TEMPERATURE GAUGE ALL WORK PROPERLY. VACUUM WINDSHIELD WIPERS ARE SLOW. RADIO AND CLOCK DO NOT WORK.

POWER OPTIONS

POWER WINDOWS AND POWER SEAT ARE ELETCROHYDRAULIC AND WORK WELL. POWER STEERING AND BRAKES WORK WELL.

TITLE

I HAVE A CLEAR ARIZONA TITLE IN HAND. I HAVE RETAINED THE AZ TITLE FOR PROVENANCE REASONS. I WILL BE HAPPY TO CONVERT IT TO A CURRENT FLORIDA TITLE IN MY NAME IF YOU WISH.
