Very nice car. Good luck with the sale.


I found this comment interesting.

I used to have one of these. It had power windows on all four windows. Olds did power front only windows in the early to mid 50s, but by 1961 I thought they were all powered.

Yeah, It's the only vehicle I've seen with only the front windows powered, I always thought it was interesting that they didn't do them all. The window handle on the back doors is easy to reach from the front, so it's not a big deal.
