Looking for your father’s or grandfather’s Oldsmobile that has been lightly modified? MotoeXotica Classic Cars has the answer in this exquisite 1950 Oldsmobile 98 Deluxe Club Sedan or commonly referred to as a sedanette fastback! Featuring an overhauled 324 CID Rocket V-8 from a mid-50s Oldsmobile. This example is one of only 11,989 sedanettes produced in 1950 and has benefitted from a complete nut-and-bolt restoration. Nineteen-fifty was the pillared Club coupe’s final model year.  This is simply one bad ass car that has undergone a nut & bolt transformation complete with fully engine rebuild, with a high quality build through out with attention to detail.

Made in General Motor’s Linden, New Jersey factory (VIN code L), the Maroon finish and chrome trim on this car is gorgeous and in overall excellent shape. Its body is straight and solid, its massive chrome bumpers shine brilliantly and form that frowning front end. The car’s engine bay is extremely tidy, the cargo area looks great and the car’s battery appears new. The massive external sun visor is a great period-correct accent.

This Olds wears Diamondback Classic wide whitewall radials topped with full-sized factory wheels covers. The tires and wheels all appear to be in very good order. At the end of February and beginning of March 2012, the car was converted to a faster, 12.7:1 steering ratio at Power Steering.com in Nixa, Missouri.

An overhauled 324 CID Rocket V-8 with a four-barrel carburetor from a mid-1950s Oldsmobile replaces the car’s original 303 CID Rocket. This 324 has the following new parts – pistons, rings, bearings, valve guides and seats – and the radiator has a new core. The engine breathes via Silverline dual exhausts. Backing this motor is GM’s classic Turbo Hydramatic 400 three-speed automatic transmission. Driver convenience features include vintage air-conditioning, power steering and electric wipers.

Inside, the car’s black interior is in overall excellent order. The front and rear bench seats are in excellent order, as is the matching carpet. The maroon headliner is in very good condition while the three-spoke, black steering wheel’s condition matches that of the seats and carpet. The inner door panels and maroon, metal instrument panel, with its full array of gauges, are all in fantastic shape, with the horn inoperable. One of the more unique items is the Guide traffic light viewer mounted to the driver’s left. Another unusual item is the gear quadrants on this car, L-D-N-R-P, Low-Drive-Neutral-Reverse-Park instead of the modern P-R-N-D-L or the earlier, P-N-D-L-R order. Additional aftermarket ancillary gauges – a Sun oil pressure along with Stewart Warner coolant and battery dials are mounted beneath the instrument panel. Completing the interior is a factory, six-tube Super Deluxe AM radio with variable tone control and clock.

The 1950 Oldsmobile 98 repeated its 1948 precedent of previewing some of next year’s styling cues for the 88. The 98 was restyled after only two years. It was the first totally slab-sided Oldsmobile and the first sedan with a wraparound rear window. Standard equipment included bumper guards, dual horns, parking lamps, dome light, rubber floor mats, aluminum sill plates, foam rubber seat cushions, chrome interior trim, lined luggage compartment and counterbalanced trunk lid. Deluxe 98 equipment included rear seat armrest, Deluxe electric clock, Deluxe steering wheel and horn button, special door trim and stainless steel wheel trim rings. Upholstery choices spanned nylon fabric, striped broadcloth or leather. Standard tire size was 7.6 by 15 inches.

In 1950, Oldsmobile stopped naming the 98 series and so from then through 1996, with the exception of 1957, when it was called the Starfire 98, and in 1961, when it was called the Classic 98, it was simply known as the Oldsmobile 98. Sales of the 98 Holiday nearly tripled to 8,263, approaching the 11,989 sold of the Club coupe. Given the rapidly growing popularity of the two-door Holiday hardtop, 1950 was the last year for the pillared Club coupe. Total sales set yet another record of 106,220.

Throughout its long and rich history, Oldsmobile has been synonymous with prestige, style, advanced engineering, and good value. In particular, the 1950 98 series topped the Oldsmobile model line and clearly signified its owner’s upward mobility to the rest of the world! If a boulevard cruiser would complete your collection, or if you are a Rocket car collector, you owe it to yourself to visit MotoeXotica Classic Cars and check out this 1950 Olds.

Coupe competition to this Olds in 1950 included Buick’s Series 50 models, Chrysler’s New Yorker, Hudson’s Super Eight, Mercury’s Eight, Packard’s Deluxe Eight and Pontiac’s Chieftain.

Documentation includes original 1950 technical service manual, a hand-written modification list, a laminated fuse block diagram with technical specifications on the other side and a Spring 2004 Vintage A/C catalog.
