1954 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight
"This dream is real!"
Here we have a beautiful 1954 Oldsmobile with only 36k miles. It is a wonderful combination of original and restored. Great color combination of Royal Marine and Polar White. This would be a very nice car for all your cruise night events, local car shows, or just own/drive for fun. One of the coolest body styles Oldsmobile ever made and there are not many of these left ... The original owner was John Humphrey who purchased this car in California. He moved to North Carolina later in life, where the car was purchased by the 2nd owner in Winston-Salem in 1985. It had less than 30k miles at that time, and was primarily car show only driven for the next 35 years.

The original V8 starts easy, runs well, and makes very good power. The transmission shifts and operates well at all speeds. All power windows work and the A/C blows cold as it should. All working lights, gauges with after-market temperature gauge. Overall, the car runs and drives excellent as a whole (and is quite easy to drive).
The car looks great inside and out! The exterior paint is very shiny with no major flaws to speak of. All very nice chrome and stainless, which is a combination of restored and original. The interior is also quite nice. I believe it is original! Engine bay and trunk are both detailed nicely. The doors, hood, trunk all open and close with ease and all body panels line up perfectly. Underneath the car looks good and solid as you would expect. Overall, the car presents itself well and is nice enough to win a trophy at most car shows you attend.
