1964 Oldsmobile Starfire Convertible 6.5L 394ci V8 Engine


Description


hile it has of course been repainted, this was originally a red car. Regal Mist, color code L, a more burgundy-like shade of red. Current red paint looks great, having been repainted once in the 90s. Imperfections include a ding on the hood, minor oxidation on the driver's rocker trim, a couple scratches down low, a crack on the passenger's side of the windshield, minor aging of the rearward-facing badged panel, a couple little blisters at the forward corner of the passenger door, and a few dust nibs in the paint scattered about. Polished surfaces are in awesome shape, with the bumpers having been refinished as show chrome in the late 2000s. With the exception of the spots of pitting on the passenger rocker trim, trim pieces are in truly fantastic shape. Panel fitment is spot on, and the doors open and close buttery smooth. Body is laser straight, with no dings aside from the one on the hood.
Interior is in beautiful shape. Again, please defer to the photos and video. Seats were reupholstered in 2006 and look like they haven't aged a day since. Very nice leatherette interior, no scuffs or burst seams. Dash top is free of any cracks, discoloring, or warping. Radio and speakers are functional, as it will play static and get loud, but the power antenna does not work. Three speed blower fan is functional, heat is good too. This car does not have an air conditioning system. Wipers are good. Interior lights are good, including the glovebox light. Analog clock is not functional. Gauges are all functional, and the five-digit odometer is assumed to have rolled over, as it now reads 14,210.
Please take a look at the underbody photos, as the car is documented in detail. Underbody looks pretty good. There's a bit of corrosion and signs of rust repair towards the rear, where the frame rails meet the fuel tank, but the rest of the car looks good. Floors and rockers are in very good shape. This car runs and drives extremely well. Truly well-sorted. The car fires right up, idles cool/quiet/steady, pulls hard through the gears, shifts smoothly and on-time, tracks straight down the road, brakes straight and effectively, steering is nice and direct with no play or noise, and the car is very smooth – no cowl shake or other tendencies of concern.
