Find Of The Day: 1961 Oldsmobile Starfire Convertible

By  | 


This rare gem of a 1961 Oldsmobile starfire currently available on eBay, was recently sold from the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, CA.

As the ad. states, ‘A rare factory ‘Twilight Mist Poly’ (Color Code B) color paint with a matching light Blue interior and fully loaded with factory options.’

Obviously, being a museum car it should be in pristine condition from the fine paintwork to the gorgeous interior, but it does look like it needs work here and there.

It does seem a bit unusual that a museum will get shot of a car like this instead of bringing it back to prime condition, but there is no doubt it could be a prime project for somebody out there.

The styling is a fantastic mark of the transition from the 50s to the 60s with a nice 394 V8 engine, producing 330 HP.

The full details of the listing you can find with the link at the bottom of this page and with a buy it now price of $29,500, this could make somebody a fine project, which has also been a museum piece.
Maybe the museum’s loss is your gain.
