Back in 1951, this Oldsmobile 98 Deluxe 4 door was not only one of the most stylish cars on the road by virtue of its innovative hardtop styling, but also one of the fastest thanks to Oldsmobiles famous Rocket V8. Even today, its a blast to drive and makes for one of the most handsome cars of the period. The hardtop look arrived with the overhead valve V8 engine in 1949, instantly making Oldsmobile the big kid on the block when it came to performance. Everything else that came before it was second-place, and if you were fast, you had a Rocket under your hood. The fantastic styling of this 98 Deluxe coupe makes it the ideal professional hot rod of the period. Blending a few curves left over from the 1940s and a streamlined look that would define the 1950s. The chrome and trim is beautifully done and the rocket theme repeats itself on the hood ornament and under the headlights, which resemble the intakes on a fighter plane. The three-pane rear window was a GM styling trademark, as were the lovely globe emblems front and rear. Its obvious this car has led a really good life. For Oldsmobile, it was a two-tiered dashboard that put all the gauges in a single pod ahead of the driver, plus a gorgeous steering wheel that echoes the exterior styling. Theres also an AM radio in the dash and a Hydra-Matic transmission on the steering column. Chrome knobs and levers echo the aircraft theme. The neatly dressed overhead valve V8 carries a 2barrel carburetor with air cleaner, Rocket valve covers.She has been converted to 12 volt Still has her Generator still making the juice. GMs Hydra-Matic automatic transmission delivered sparkling performance behind the fast-revving V8 engine, especially when breathing through a rumbling dual exhaust system. The chassis features originality and years of grease and dirt, but no major issues and offers more proof that this car really has been well-maintained all its life. Chrome wheels with full wheel covers are fitted with p255/75/15
