1951 Olds 98 Holiday Coupe

Does anyone know how many of these were built.

I had one in high school in the 60ís and my Dad always told me how rare the car was.
It was two toned paint, white top with green metallic lower. It had leather seats, power seats and windows(hydraulic), 303 cu in and the hydramatic transmission.

All these years later I have only encountered maybe two.

Any thoughts?

Thank you.

Hyd. is not an abbreviation for Hydra-Matic Drive. It is an abbreviation for hydraulic controls (windows and seat). The 'base" 98 coupe did not have hydraulic controls or leather upholstery. The answer to the original question is 14,012.
