Very nice, but I agree about the floormats. Otherwise, it looks very original. Love to see under the hood.

Sam thanks for posting. Guys the floor mats are just there temporary not meant to be part of car, as I had mentioned the car had been sitting for 8 years and not plated since 1994, thus it was a quick clean up, I will have to spend some serious time to really detail and find all the proper numbers to show the authenticity, and hope the original purchase invoice will be found somewhere in the car, again many Thanks to Sam, he really motivated me on this car, nice to see there are still good people around.

Hi Lou, another Ontario 1969 Glade Green/Black bucket interior 4 speed Oldsmobile guy here!


Hope to meet you one day soon!


My Sports Coupe W-31 was picked up by the original (Al and Lynn Stager) owners March 27 1969 he paid $4504.24, maybe you saw this car back in the day? My car was bought at County Garage Ayr Ontario.......pretty close to you......what dealer did you buy your Olds at?


Here is the long version:

Hi Ryan, my car was $4500.00 and I picked it up in a small town called Brooklyn Ont.just north west of Whitby Ont. I went outside of Toronto, Dean Myers in those days wanted $5200.00 well worth the extra drive for those savings. Would be nice to meet, once I receive all the paper work from Vintage Services we can spend time discussing the different options.

Sammy, I don't recall the name it was a father son team with a small 2 bay shop, at the time I was told they sold the most GM vehicles in Ontario, hopingly the name of dealer will show up on the Vintage papers I am expecting from Oshawa, I will keep u guys informed of documentation when it arrives.

The dealer name should be on the VVS docs:-)

Did your car have a dealer badge back in the day?
