1938 Oldsmobile L38 8 Series Additional Info:

1938 Oldsmobile L38 8 Series Touring Sedan Trunk model that has the very desirable straight 8 257 cubicinch(4.2 L) engine and manual transmission (floor shifter).Yes, this is the rare factory 8 cylinder Oldmobile in original condition. These cars don't come around for sale very often, maybe you'll see the Series 6 model or one updated with a Chevrolet 350. If you love the Art Deco style of the 30's with the big engine, this is it at a very affordable price.

Still a lot of room to make a profit if you want to, but you have to buy it first! This is a factory black car, color code 40 on the cowl tag and tan interior.FrameID number, LL198578, indicates that this Olds was built in Linden, New Jersey. I located the car in a makeshift garage inNew York a few months ago, so it had stayed in the tri-state area.

I got it home and it was tuned up with all new electrical components, new fluidsanda fresh 6V battery. No, I haven't washed it either. I missed a few of the warmer winter days due to work and I also figured that the detail/wax job would get ruined with the mechanical progress.

Currently, a brand new fuel tank was ordered to prevent any future issues with contaminated gas. Maintains it's original6 voltelectrical system. All of the lights work, even has functioning signal lights. Emergency brake works.

Runs, but has not been significantly road tested due to the weather. All of the glass is intact, I have the glass for the rear driver side vent window too. Original tan cloth interior with medium brown moldings. The heater is still installedunderneath the dash, not sure if it was a dealer installed accessory. Still has the original16 inchrims with older whitewalls. Missing one of the dog dish hubcaps, but I have all of the trim rings.

There is some rust just above the gas tank passenger side area (can photograph if requested), everything else is very presentable. The headliner and the lower door panels are missing, but I do have the interior handles. The driver's side hood opening arm is missing a spring, which prevents it from locking in the upright position. The running boards are lacking the rubber matting material. Missing the wiper assembly too. It is what it is, remember that its 81 years old.

The exterior looks very presentable, the chrometrim is all there. I even have a newly chrome plated Series 8 front hood ornament coming from the plater in a week or two to finish off that art deco front end.

Comes with an extra front windshield glass panel, dealer distributed 1938 marketing monochromatic photographs and a Series 6 hood ornament (needs plating). As mentioned above the newly chromed Series 8 hood ornament will be provided once it comes from the plater (I will include the receipt to show the paid order and I will ship it out to the winning bidder if it doesn'tarrive on time).

Again, this 38 Olds has a really classy body style with the suicide doors and an 8 cylinder engine that was GM's top of the line ride of that era. A little winter TLC will get it ready for the Spring cruise nights. Selling with a Bill of Sale, if you are seriously interested I can forward you as many pics or videos as you need to see if this classic is for you!Family priorities have changed myplans of freshening her up and holding on to her.
