SUMMARY

Fantastic and practical classic American motoring, powered by Oldsmobile's legendary Golden Rocket V8.

DESCRIPTION

  • Classic American styling the 4 door saloon was marketed as the Holiday Sedan - retaining the wonderful sweeping lines of the coupe but with the practicality of 4 doors for family use.

  • Presented in stunning turquoise (Allegheny Green), which was repainted in the early 2000s, with very good chrome work. The correct original turquoise vinyl and green cloth interior (Morrocceen) is in remarkable condition 
  • Imported to the UK in December 1979, and subsequently purchased by its late owner in June 1982
  • Property of a deceased estate, the Oldsmobile has been in dry storage since 2017 and will require some recommissioning prior to returning to the road.
