Full body stripped and enamel paint in 1989. Overall paint condition is 8 on a 10 point scale with very few small chips and general wear. The paint looks really nice.


The exterior and interior chrome is very nice. The rear bumper chrome does need re-chromed due to moisture sitting on the bumper when the car was parked for a few years. The rear bumper shines and presents ok but upon closer inspection you will see why it will need re-chromed.


The interior is fantastic! All seats, dash, headliner and carpet are like new.


This Oldsmobile starts, runs and drives excellent! All mechanicals have been gone though to make sure it is 100% ready to drive.
