1965 Oldsmobile Starfire Convertible Additional Info:

The 1965 Oldsmobile Starfire Convertible's original mission was to be a distinct and luxurious V8 cruiser that established a top-dog luxury droptop. Today this well-maintained example upholds that tradition with its great colors, loaded interior, and period-correct big block power. This manages to be both premium and imposing in its first impression. Oldsmobile did a terrific job as they merged elements like the wide, intimidating grille with elements like the profile that has a sporty kick-up integrated into the rear... fender. And no one did a better job at integrating their wide chrome bumpers into the overall design like Olds could during this period. the reason why you see it all so nicely today is that this example has been properly restored and preserved so that the sheetmetal remains straight, the body gaps are uniform, and all the right pieces are still in place - right down to the wire wheel covers with proper Olds center caps. And we understand why a car like this would be so well respected. They only made 2,236 Starfire convertibles in 1965, and how many do you think survived to look this good over half a century later? The white paint continues this premium and extraordinary feeling thanks to a recent professional application. And the convertible top finishes of the dignified presentation to give this one an appeal that's as clear as black and white. If you like the way this looks with the top up, then you'll really love it even more when the roof is down. The black and white interior gives this the kind of color coordination you'd get on a tuxedo, and it's presented just as nice as formalwear. As a true upper-class Olds, the Starfire came with some rare features as standard. This includes desirable items like power locks, provisions for factory air conditioning, and the bright center console with the unique tach mounted in the center. And yes, the AM/FM radio with separate 8-track is still working - that's how period-correct this cruiser is! You'll love getting behind the dual spoke steering wheel that gives you a clear view of the full gauge package, including the speedometer set in the deep "V". You might have noticed that this Starfire has plenty of room to carry family and friends, but you can have fun in this car all on your own. After all, with features like a power convertible top and power windows, you never even have to leave the driver's seat to go from enclosed luxury to a wind-in-your-hair experience. Under the hood is a 1965-correct 425 cubic-inch motor. The presentation is terrific with the bold red block, Starfire air topper, and even cool details like the correct GM washer fluid refill bottle still strapped in the engine bay. The big V8 is correct for the premium Starfire, and so it had more displacement than the contemporary 442 muscle machine. In fact, topped with a correct Rochester four-barrel carburetor, this high-compression V8 produced some of the best power of the era. And everyone will know that this big convertible has big power every time they hear the low rumble of the dual exhaust. But what you really want to know is how this one glides down the road like a true big block luxury car should. Features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes, and power steering makes sure this one is ready for the boulevard. Complete with the owner's manual, early maintenance records, and restoration photos, this is a rare droptop that commands respect and attention where ever it goes. So if you're ready for an upper-class classic, call today!
