1950 Olds

Saw this at the local car show earlier this year; looks like a 1950 Olds 88.

That's exactly what it is. It's the one on the lower right on this page out of the '50 Olds brochure. Only the four-door sedan had the vent window on the rear doors.

That Olds is a 1950 but it's not an 88. The lack of front fender stainless trim, hood rocket and taller taillight housing means it a 76 series. Big Six flathead 6 cylinder 257 cu inch.

The car is a 49. All 50's had the trim on the front fender. It was common in the day for owners of 49's to add the 1950 trim.
