  1. That’s a great question that I wish I knew the answer to. Definitely depends on the potential buyers’ willingness to outbid each other. It would make a great hot rod, but bring so rare may mean to some it must be redone as original. Luckily this one is complete and has a bunch of extra parts from a ‘40 sedan as well. I think Mike Fusick owns the only other one known to exist and it is redone. We would have to ask him what he would sell his for I guess. Not my area of expertise at all, so any other input would be welcomed.
  2. Despite my feelings for and desire to restore it, I have my 1940 phaeton listed on Hemmings now for anyone that would like to convert their nostalgia to a tangible project.
  3. So Steve, would body number one be a blue one owned by Mike Fusick? I also have a sedan in pretty rough shape, but unfortunately am faced with likely having to sell my convertible. The sedan has been outside the last 10 years, but the convertible has been garaged for 50. 58L-Y8 thank you for the info. I do somewhere have a letter from GM explaining the 26/50 found on the frame along with some other helpful info, but nothing that extensive. I wish I had more time, space, and knowledge to take the restoration on, but am just not thinking it possible at this point.
  4. Only a year out this reply, but I hope this message finds you well and still enjoying your rare Oldsmobile. Anyway... Beautiful car! Makes me seriously second guess my recent plans to sell mine. I have storage and other projects issues presently but that is worth building another garage for. However, I’m not sure I would want to get the restoration bill. Here is one bad pic, but I will try to get some others up as I get it rolling again.
  5. I posted my same original question in the oldsmobile general forum and have had some great replies from Paul Hartlieb of the National Antique Oldsmobile Association. He knows of the owner of body number 1 and posted a picture of it restored. Check it out.
  6. Wow! Great info paul, just what i was looking for. I'll look him up and see if he will send me a picture. Is his restored? Thanks again!
  7. I can only find one black and white pic from the 40's when i googled it. I'll pull the cover off and try to post one of mine when i get a chance.
  8. We have a 1940 4 door Olds convertible. I was looking for more information on what it is, i.e. series 90 phaeton? Also wanted to know where to start with a restoration. I know it's pretty rare, possible #26 of 50, but we do have a 1940 sedan that could help with parts, but really don't know where to begin. Anybody in particular that works on just these cars in the southeast? Thanks for any help...<!-- google_ad_section_end -->
