Evaluation: Located in California. Restored in the 1990s and mostly displayed or shown since. Very good paint, chrome, and interior. Good panel fit. Rear window on the top has shrunken and the top material is creased from constantly being down. Excellent engine bay and underbody. Not done yesterday, but the quality of the work is apparent, and this car can still be shown with confidence.
Bottom Line: This car originally showed not sold at a $69,000 high bid at the conclusion of the auction, but the seller came to their senses and a post-block deal was reached. 1950s American cars, particularly ones from orphan brands like Oldsmobile, aren’t getting any more valuable and this car is unlikely to find a much higher offer elsewhere even though it was reported sold by Gooding at Amelia in 2011 for $126,500.
