1962 Oldsmobile F-85 Convertible

The current owner has owned this car for about 10 years. The person before him was known to have owned it more than that but we aren't really sure of the total history of the car.

The odometer shows roughly 36,000 miles, again, not sure if that is correct, probably not.

The car is very solid with no rot what so ever and she runs and drives great with the brakes having just been rebuilt. The 215 all aluminum V8 is known as the Rockette 8 and armed with the 2bbl carb, as this one is, puts out 155 HP and 220 lb.ft. There is a true dual exhaust that runs straight back and gives the car a rather nice rumble.

We know that the interior is original however, the body has been painted at least once, possibly twice and is in it's original color, Sheffield Mist Iridescent (Metallic Grey).

The top was replaced just before this owner, so it is about 10 years old but shows no wear.

The only listed option on this car is the 3 spd syncromesh manual transmission. Nothing is power... Manual steering, manual brakes, manual top, AM radio, drum brakes. There are a couple of small scratches present in the paint and a large paint flake on the hood. Overall, very nice condition and would be welcome at any cruise night or show.

She could use some deep cleaning/detailing to really shine.

Ready to do some work on over the winter or jump in and enjoy next spring.

Asking price is $11,500

Thank you for the interest.
