55 Olds 98

A friend of mine just bought a 55 Olds 98. I will do some research for him since it's his first Olds and I'll have to get him to join here for research etc. It looks like a survivor but does need a total resto. It runs, I believe the original engine. Has power windows, power antenna and rear speaker switch. I think he's lucky it has all of it's trim although needs polishing/re chrome. I'll post some pics when I take some for him

Perhaps when you take pics for him, you can take some time to help him get set up on this site. Then show him how to reply to a post and start a thread.

We have a pretty good contingent of 50's cars on here and some guys that know a good bit about these old cars and are glad to help. Look forward to seeing the pictures.
