1954 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight description

  • As a car nut all my life ( 79 years old past April ) I recollect various cars that came into my life.In 1962 I invented the seat lock mechanism that locks the passengers seat backrest from flying into the dashboard under a sudden stop.I designed it on a 1954 Oldsmobile Holiday coupe since just days before I had my 18 month old daughter sitting in a 'child's seat' that was hung over the back of the seat when I had to do a rapid stop to avoid an accident.My daughter, sitting in the child's seat almost hit her head but I stopped it by placing my arm in front of her while I was doing a fast stop.I believed that this all could be corrected and designed a mechanism that I thought auto parts stores across the country would sell for $1.99 as a safety item while making one half profit....Foolishly I took the advice of my lawyer at the time who told me "Don't waste your $800.00 to get this patented.No one will want it.Use that $800.00 and purchase TWA stock at $86.00 which I did.Years later I sold the stock for about $6.00 and my lawyer had passed away.... about four years ago I found this car.The same model.The same exterior color.The same interior color and a highly original car which I always admired.
  • After acquiring it I found several livable defects .The car had been painted at one time because the original finish was thinning from compounding and waxing and it showed like new cars do with orange peel everywhere.That was totally unacceptable to me therefore I hired a professional auto painter/ detailer to wet sand the car for over one week working diligently every day ...Each day the panels started to look better until on the eight day I thought it looked great.By the way the whitewalls look clean not like in the photos.
  • I have since acquired an extremely rare 1956 Lincoln Continental Derham Victoria Coupe (the only one ever made) and I have been waiting for eleven months for the paint and metal work to be completed which is now one year pastwhen it was promised.I have included a couple of photos of my 56 Lincoln so you can see the rare car it is.
    In one of the photos you will see the second floor or our cramped building filled with top show winning classic cars with the Oldsmobile Holiday coupe towards the left rear..I have absolutely no room when the Continental returns.I will not leave any of my classics outside. ...I am a real car nut and have been all my life but I am literally out of space therefore I have to part with two of my great cars.... If you know me you know my cars.
    The 1954 Oldsmobile is an absolute treasure.It starts easily.It runs quietly immediately without traditional valve tapping and shifts properly.My mechanic went through the entire car for two weeks from brakes, exhaust,to carb plus locatingnew two new window stainlessflippers which are usually bent right after they were new at($500.00) that were bent when I acquired the car.
    I have well over a real $36000.00 in it with time and labor and parts ....It is a great survivor that can be taken to top events and be shown with pride.
    I really want to sell it quickly ..No disappointments..You'll really enjoy this rare car.
