You know to be impressed when a full-size classic convertible has been this well preserved/maintained, comes loaded with features (including A/C), and has a big 455 Rocket V8 under the hood. So don't take too long looking at all the details of this 1969 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight, because you're not the only one who will recognize that this droptop classic is one heck of an all-around value.
The Ninety-Eight's original mission was to be Oldsmobile's large luxury machine, but with more cubic inches under the hood than even a 442 of that year, it cannot help but be a little boastful. The red is a terrific modern application with plenty of clearcoat shine every time the sunlight hits the sheetmetal. And this is a sharp design with the extra-long hood that has a bold point out front leading the way. Plus, we love the brightwork where the front bumper hugs the form as it curves down to meet the full length rocker trim. And the rear bumper connects with the trim, too, as it curves up and integrates into the shapely rear end. And you've got all the right details, like the factory hubcaps, correct badging, and rear fender skirts. It's truly a classic American boulevard cruiser
Beneath the black folding roof is an equally nice black interior. The intricate button top seats greet you when you open any door. This has the right vintage look, but everything is a near-pristine presentation - so you understand why this is an ideal mix of preservation and care. The Ninety-Eight is a true luxury machine from Oldsmobile, so you get to choose to fill this droptop with up to five family and friends. Or fold down the front armrest and the driver gets a zip code worth of individual comfort. The seat even power adjusts. You sit behind the factory steering wheel, and the driver-focused instruments encapsulates with its luxury. You have features within an easy reach like the power locks and the factory AM/FM radio with working 8-track player. But what really makes this one special is the power windows and power top. That means you can go from completely enclosed to fully open with just a few buttons and never leaving the driver's seat. And because the factory air conditioning is blowing cold, you can keep the top off through the summer and never break a sweat.
Under the hood is Oldsmobile's biggest engine, the Rocket 455 cubic inch V8. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, it provides the kind of low-RPM power that moves this big car without seeming to work hard. The engine bay is exceptionally clean, more evidence that this has been under the right care. And it has such a stock look that the motor is believed to be original to the car. But what you really want to know is how this one glides down the road like a true big block luxury car should. Features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes w/discs up front give this a true effortless '60s cruiser feeling.
This is the cool classic Olds with a great classic look and all the features you want. So at a price like this, you need to hurry and call today!
