  1. 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.
  2. This may be true for serial numbers, but not body numbers. I have seen many body numbers under 1001.
  3. 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 upper body. Green interior trim was one of the recommendations with this exterior color combination. This car is equipped with Oldsmobile Air Conditioning (N) and an electric vertical seat adjuster (U-1) (in addition to the standard horizontal seat adjuster...)
  4. Thanks, Terry. I tried that before posting here, but didn't come up with anything.
  5. SMS can't produce what they promise now. How in the world are they going to pick up the additional business?
  6. 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.
  7. Mine arrived the other day in a plain brown envelope. No paperwork. From somewhere in Texas.
  8. I guess FedEx lost my key chain. Anyone else receive theirs?
  9. 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.
  10. Sorry, I should have been more specific. These are used. I have no part numbers. They are either right fronts or left rears. I don't know how to tell them apart without part numbers. They look so similar. When I looked at that parts book online, I expected them to be the same part number, but they aren't. They appear the same, but they must mount differently. They are either an 1828626 or an 1829045, but I have no way of knowing. It took me forever just to figure out they're '59 Chrysler. Thanks
  11. A recently acquired stash of Oldsmobile parts also included a pair of bumper bars for a '59 Chrysler. How can I tell if these are front or rear. They look similar in the parts catalog I looked at online, but have different part numbers. I don't have pictures at this time.
