Welcome to Classic Olds. Go to fsplanet.com , they have a set for $72 and they look pretty good. See you are from St. Louis, my '55 was bought new there from Greibe Fisher OLDSMOBILE. Larry

Welcome to the site. In St. Louis there is an Oldsmobile club if you are interested. Looks like a great car.

Welcome aboard.

re: Faux Hood Louvers. I looked at your hood pics and blew them up 400%. Your hood does not have the configuration needed to install louvers. You'll have to search out a new hood for that. The CS didn't come with hood louvers from the factory unless it was special ordered.

Notice also that since your car has AC, there are no rear cowl vents. The hood you are looking for came standard on the Cutlass S and looks like this:



And you can see right in the text of the Oldsmobile brochure that the louvers were color coded to the lower body color.
