It has the 303 engine, power steering and a hydro-matic which makes for a great highway cruiser.  However it needs a lot TLC and possible some chrome work, upholstery and whatever lurks under the hood = $$$.  Personally I am not a convertible guy!

I guess the owner doesn't have time to enjoy it anymore because of the Corvette behind the Olds.

Sharp car. Looks like it might clean up pretty well. 

Then, if it runs good,  it might show itself to be worth somewhere near asking price.

You get a lot more thumbs up in the Olds than the Corvette!

Buyer:  "Found this car 30 years ago in a lady's

garage and just don’t seem to have enough time

to enjoy it any more."

 

Not said:  "Comes with authentic 30-year-old dirt!"

 

It does look like a nice car for someone, but

as we all say, good presentation helps the sale...

I agree.  I think some of these folks are influenced by the "Dusty Barn Find Ferrari Sells for Millions" auctions.
