  1. Don't want to hi jack this thread, but here is a recent picture of that '42...
  2. On the opposite side of that relay-looking thing there should be another metal tag bolted to the firewall. Since it was bolted, it may have been removed. That would be the serial number. In its absence, you'll have to look on frame as mentioned above. In your case you'd be looking for the 76- or 78- number, as this is a 70 series model. I don't know where 1412246 would have come from.
  3. Trim #320 is for Ivory and Red leather.
  4. The car is not mine. I am trying to help an elderly couple who are AACA members. The husband recently suffered a stroke and can no longer drive. They have owned the car for 30+ years. The car is a 1941 Oldsmobile Series 70, sometimes referred to as a Dynamic Cruiser. It was Oldsmobile's mid-range car in '41. It shared the body that was used by the bigger Pontiacs and smaller Buicks and Cadillacs. It is the 8 cylinder model and has the Hydra-Matic transmission. It wears DeLuxe equipment which translates to the "washboards" on the fenders, DeLuxe hood ornament, DeLuxe steering wheel
  5. Here is the body tag for a 1942 Oldsmobile Series 60 convertible. They only made 848 of them. This is body number 722. And, here is a body for a 1942 Oldsmobile 98 convertible. They only made 216 of them. This is body number 196. Neither one has a four digit body number.
  6. This may be true for serial numbers, but not body numbers. I have seen many body numbers under 1001.
  7. What you have is a 1955 Oldsmobile 98 Holiday sedan (55-3039SDX). The body was built in Lansing and was the 8,625th 98 Holiday sedan body built there (L 8625). My book was printed before the Holiday sedans were available, but I'm guessing the interior is Ivory leather with light green pattern cloth. Your tag says 387 and a Holiday coupe with a 337 code would be green and white. Anything in my book ending with a 7 refers to green. S63-60 means the car originally wore Bronze metallic paint on the rear deck and lower body and Polar White on the roof, hood and u
  8. Thanks, Terry. I tried that before posting here, but didn't come up with anything.
  9. SMS can't produce what they promise now. How in the world are they going to pick up the additional business?
  10. I'll have to look and see if I have any pictures. My grandparents took me there in the mid '70s. I remember the V8 car and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. I know there are photos from that trip (Gaslight Village, Santa's Workshop, High Falls Gorge, Whiteface Mountain), but not sure if they include the car museum.
  11. Mine arrived the other day in a plain brown envelope. No paperwork. From somewhere in Texas.
  12. I guess FedEx lost my key chain. Anyone else receive theirs?
  13. If you do a Google search for that company, somewhere you will find a link with their Better Business Bureau cases. Makes for some fun reading. My case is there. From that page you will be able to file your own case. That's what I did and it got results. I'd post a link here for you, but we seem to be doing a good job of not directly identifying them.
