This 1937 Oldsmobile Six is a great cruising classic that retains all the right features, has a great price, and shows a bit of extra charm over other '30s classics out there.
1930s cars have the same appeal as Art Deco skyscrapers. After all, they both have streamlined looks, plenty of brightwork, and a vintage appeal that captures the era. You see it in this Oldsmobile with the grille that wraps around the narrow front end, the teardrop headlight surrounds, and the sleek flowing fenders front & rear. Plus, the way the trim line starts at the grille and runs uninterrupted until it gets to those cool bullet-like taillights is a masterful touch. And If anyone is also wondering why this year Olds is stuck in your memory, you're probably a fan of the movie A Christmas Story. Oh fudge, this is the same model car that Ralphie's father (describes as an “Oldsmobile Man”) drove!
More than just a movie connection, you'll love showing this one off because there's just something cool about pulling up to a cruise-in or car show and opening up the suicide doors for everyone to get a clear view inside. And when you do, this car gets to showcase a handsomely updated brown and tan two-tone package. The seats, door panels, carpeting, and headliner were all part of this investment so that you have a great uniform package to show off. And speaking of showing off, the radio and clock are still on display, which are fun pieces to showcase. But more than just appearance, you'll love grabbing the large classic three-spoke steering wheel and watching the speed climb on the Art Deco speedometer as you motor down the road.
Under the hood is a correct 230 cubic-inch straight six. If you're a true fan of the vintage motors, then you'll love details like the GM prominently cast on top of the big flat head. Plus, you can see by the condition of functional pieces like the wires and carburetor that this has received the right attention to continue to be a cruiser. And this torquey motor makes that proper 1930s sound going down the byways (you know, the one where the single exhaust sounds like a winding generator with a hint of throatiness.) You can handle around-town driving without breaking a sweat thanks to the three-speed manual transmission. Also, the more modern radial tires (with classic Cadillac wheel covers) provides a much-improved ride.
This is the unique Olds that Raphie would approve of. So if you like pre-war vintage with a little extra fun attached, don't miss this deal. Call today!!!
