Smile New Olds in Town

Hello together
I`m a New Owner of a 1959 Oldsmobile Super 88 Senice Coupe. I have buy this car in Florida , and he is now in Switzerland.
The Paint and Interior is White/turquoise. Engine : 394 cui , 4 Barrel , Hydramatic Trans. I`m very happy of this car. He has partly the original Paint. (Pictures asap). The car drives like a dream !!

But i have a Little Problem. I need new seat covers (Looks like original).
My old ones are discolored , but i don`t find a Company that makes this one. Maybe can someone help me ( with a idea , Note , etc.)

Best regards Markus

Awesome car!! Seats look pretty good in the pics. If you want to replace them I think you'll have to have them custom made.

SMS fabics in Oregon makes the original pattern fabrics and vinyl . https://smsautofabrics.com/
You will have to buy the yardage and have a local upholstery shop make the covers .

Sweet car! Welcome! I'm really digging the size of that trunk (and the massive rear overhang). I bet a spinet piano would fit in that trunk.

Love the body lines... get a few pictures with the windows down, it looks even longer if you don't see the window trim.

Welcome,
Real nice car ! Don't see many of them up here in Canada anymore. Really like the front windshield and glass . Really sharp looking rear end as well.
The experienced team it took Oldsmobile to build that car back in the day was highly skilled.
That car could not be built with the millennial's coming up in the stamping trade today.
I'm sure, every cruise you take in your 59 will be special.
Good to have you with us !

Eric
