New to Olds

Good day everyone,
I just dragged home a 1959 Oldsmobile 98 that I know nothing about. This is my first "old" Oldsmobile. Its a basket case but rust free.
Thank you for all the great information on this site. With your help, I hope to get this big girl up and on the road again soon.
Regards
JG

Welcome, Did you get the missing trim pieces? Could be a expensive project if you don't have them. Not much is reproduced for this model car you know and if mine I would start looking for a parts car to fill out your needs....Tedd

Looks solid. Body, interior, and trim parts are not the easiest to source.

Thanks for the replies,
This was a parts car for the last owner. Originally Arizona car and rust free.
Honestly, I may run it with aluminum door panels, dash and some race seats. Not sure Ill find any reasonably priced interior parts.
No chrome trim or interior came with it.. Just a rolling bucket..
Regards
JG

I think that the best way to tackle this project is to find a rusted , but intact parts car from the north .
