This beautiful 1941 Oldsmobile “Eight” Two Door- 4 Seater Convertible, body built by Fisher, is one of a number of quality-restored cars from the Charles M. Cawley Collection, the former MBNA President and Chief Executive.
We bought the restored vehicle several years ago for our collection. Since then, the car was only displayed at car shows and stored in our climate-controlled warehouse. We are now making the car available for sale.
The Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight was a full-size vehicle introduced in 1941. The 98 had been formerly known as the Series 90. The 98 was the flagship model of the Oldsmobile division of General Motors in the 40th. In 1941 the “98 Old's” was considered one of the most luxurious family car offered in the medium-price field.
The Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Convertible is a big car with 125-inch wheelbase, front seat 60 inch wide, rear set leg room of 39 ¼ inches, giving a seating capacity for six inside the tonneau. The convertible top can be raised or lowered without leaving the driver's seat by means of a vacuum mechanism operated by the engine and controlled from the dash. The large luggage compartment in the rear is carpeted. Coil Springs all around, ride stabilizers front and rear and double action shock absorbers. The car comes with 110 HP 8 cylinder in line engine, deluxe instrument panel, large hubcaps, chrome wheels trim rings, chrome fender detail, deluxe clock and glove compartment door.
This beautifully restored vintage convertible received top quality re-chroming plating with attention to details. Red leather interior with wood-grain style dash, a tan convertible top and visually highlighted by fender skirts. Painted steel wheels wearing wide Whitewalls and trimmed with beauty rings and hub caps. Nice smooth running car!
