1923 Olds 6-Cyl Parts Car

Recommended Posts

Got this lead today:

 

Secondly through my Father’s passing and time I have acquired an old Oldsmobile car and parts.  I have the front half of what I am told to be a 1923.  It has a complete frame, fenders, cowl, fuel tank, 6 cylinder engine with the bell housing and transmission.  The steering column an wheel are also there along with the front wheels and tires.  The back of the bar was removed to make a tree hauler.  It has an additional 4 speed transmission bolted behind the original transmission.  It has a windshield frame but I am not sure it is correct.  Someone removed the truck solid rubber tire rear end.  I have the rear leaf springs but could only find a 1928 rear axle.

 

As an Oldsmobile collector and expert do you know of anyone who would want the car and parts.   They can come and give me what they want.  I hate to scrap such a piece of history.  The car and parts are located in Erie, PA 16506.  My cell is 1-814-923-8770.

I'd buy it just to save it....no more restorations  for ME.  Time to drive what I have and spend more time in my race car.

As the most public ambassador to the hobby for the entire planet earth, I do believe you should buy the project, and restore it to Pebble Beach standards...............🤡

You guys sure want me to continue my brilliant business sense in repeating buying a car and putting more money into it than it ever will be worth.  I already am very experienced in that so think this time I will let one of you fine fellows do so!!

This is John who has the 1923 Oldsmobile.  I also have a 1928 rear end and just found a small box of smaller sheet support pieces with some would frame pieces attached.  I also have a miscellaneous windshield frame. Erie Pa is beautiful this time of the year.  One offer takes it all.

 

 Thank you to Steve for putting the ad out!  My 92 year old mother wants it out of the garage.  Text 1-814-923-8770 or respond to this ad.

This would make a great speedster project. That motor with the word Oldsmobile cast into the side is awesome. Maybe it should be moved down to the speedster forum?

Thank you for posting it to the Speedster Group.  Someone texted me what I was asking for it.  I will start at $800 for all the parts.  Remember this includes the 28 rear end with wood wheels and a smaller box of metal braces and wood framing!  I am in the process of getting my 92 year of mother's house ready to sell.  The garage is first.  I will give it a week or two before I send it to the scrap yard.  John

I would suggest also posting it to the speedster forum on this page, found a little lower on the front page. There is also an Oldsmobile forum even lower down for Oldsmobile owners. It could be posted in both forums and get more exposure. I'm sure someone would love to get hold of this. If you can give it some time I'm sure you'll find a buyer. It looks like you've got plenty of work to do without touching the car. Besides, no telling what other parts you might find in all the stuff packed back in the nooks and crannies of that garage.

No I do not.  I purchased it from a logger who used it to pull logs back in the 40's and 50's.  He had the original 3 speed trans. and added a 4 speed trans.behind it.  They were connected to a solid rubber dual wheel rear end.  He had pulled the Oldsmobile out of a salvage yard in Corry PA. The two tranmissions are still there.  The rear end is gone but I have a 1928 rear end going with it.

John, at this point we need to try a sales approach. Although I wish I could buy the car I cannot. You say you have found a second? set of wheels. Do they match the ones on the front? I'm not sure this is 23. The front wheels are metal felloe and metal felloe wheels came out a little later. Also, the four speed trans could be worth your asking price for the car. Therefore, pictures of the trans and extra wheels would be helpful. Does the new found wheels fit the 28 rear end? The car could actually be a 28, in which case you have a complete chassis. Also, the motor, does it turn over? Or is it stuck? Did you post this to the speedster forum? These answers could help sell the car.

As I have said before I am cleaning out my 92 year old mother's house. The second set of wheels do not match the front wheels.  My family purchased the 28 rear end and it is complete with brakes and wood wheels but no tires.  I do not know if the additional wheels fit the 28 rear.  The engine turns over and is a 23 as is the three speed transmission.  Any numbers for the four speed transmission are hidden under a mounting bracket.  $700 obo
