Description:

1955 Oldsmobile Starfire

2nd go around. NO RESERVE and a BUY IT NOW added. Rare and desirable Oldsmobile 98 Starfire. Several sources say there may be 100-125+/- of these 1955 models still driving around - in the world. This car stands out from the rest primarily due to ZERO rust anywhere, ever. Rock solid TX car, check out the underside pictures/rear quarters/driver's floor. Believed to be 50K original miles; drives absolutely amazingly at 75 mph! This is a classic that'll keep pace with modern traffic! Everything functions as it should, including the windows and top. If you know these cars, then you know 1955 was the year GM went to the much more reliable and easily serviced electrics (from hydraulics for the power seat and windows) . Also the last year of the original and venerable Hydra-Matic. 1956 Brought a totally revamped transmission with many teething problems. 1955 is the best year to have for all around drive-ability! This car is dependable, rugged and easily serviced. Original code "10" solid black Starfire. The interior was redone in Naugahyde that looks decent but should be white and red leather, code "350." I contacted "SMS Auto fabrics" they have the correct leather on hand - $4K for the leather, and had $2K bid to have installed. I have built this consideration into my price. MANY NEW PARTS INCLUDING 4 NEW 235X15 W/W RADIALS, NEW CONVERTIBLE TOP MOTOR, ELECTRIC WINDSHIELD WIPERS, ELECTRONIC IGNITION, REBUILT RADIATOR AND HEATER CORE, REBUILT STEERING BOX, NEW BRAKES & SHOCKS, NEW ORIGINAL FLOOR MATS, REBUILT STARTER AND SOLENOID,
NEW FUEL PUMPS (MECHANICAL AND ELECTRICAL), NEW CONVERTIBLE BOOT, REBUILT POWER BOOSTER/MASTER CYLINDER, AND MORE. CAR HAS POWER STEERING, POWER BRAKES, POWER WINDOWS, POWER SEAT, POWER TOP,
AND AM RADIO. All the chrome and stainless on this car is OUTSTANDING!! Read my feedback, been on eBay a long time and have sold many cars. Cars are my hobby, I'm not a dealer. Selling to upgrade my 57' Roadmaster convertible.

To clarify: There was a buy it now, however since I decided to let the market determine what the car is worth - the buy it now feature went away once the bidding started. I welcome anyone to view and drive the car - you will be duly impressed.
