Real nice Olds!
Hot damn! Good thing there aren't any for sale near me.
Congratulations. The car is is very nicely done. Definitely a perfect classic ride.
I've never seen old style valve covers like that on a 455, factory covers are ten bolts around the edges. How did they get them to fit?
My thoughts exactly, cream puff !
My '49 was a 76, but I fixed that with a '54 - 324 & Hydro, back in 1965 ! Sold it for $175.00
Super straight and a sleeper. Nice ride.
I'm mostly a Ford/Merc. guy, but, I love those 50 Olds'. VERY NICE...now throw some Star Fire wheel covers & white walls on there & "pow" !, you got the KOOLEST Olds in the world! mike
Very classy..love the red interior.
If it were mine (you know I have to do this lol), I'd scrape those Edelbrock stickers off the carbs... I would also lower it a little and paint those steel wheels black with chrome lug nuts.. Hopefully there not those dual lug pattern wheels..
Real nice car that somebody did a lot of first class work to..
Perfect as it sits,you did good,enjoy!!
When yer tired of it, just put it on a trailer to Okieland
Nice car..love those Olds
My first Olds was also a '50 fastback that I bought in 1959 for 25 bucks. Wish I still had it.
Wow.....just beautiful in every way. I love it!
If you bought it close to Van Nuys airport, Then I know the car
I love 49-51 Olds cars. Got a buddy in a neighboring town who used to build olds' This is a 50 coupe he built with the early experimental V/8 engine...can't remember the cu. in. but it was a little smaller than a 303. IIRR it had a manual transmission and the see-through hood sold to dealerships. Extremely nice car. I think the brown rag top was his too. He once built a KILLER olds sedan delivery using an Olds 4 door and a chevy delivery....couldn't tell it wasn't factory.
IF Van Nuys Bob built the car I don't think the PCV would be sticking out the top of the valve cover.
Congratulations, I've had mine since 1969. Will never sell it.
I know I've seen that olds around before...was it ever in Omaha?
It was in Lincoln a couple of times but not Omaha.
Wow, just wow.
What a beauty! I would love to see a walk around video while its sittin there running with those duals rumbling,
A wicked takeoff showin what that 455 would do in that little olds would be nice too
Saw this NOS Olds dealer hood on that website the other year, $500 from memory.
50 Olds fastback, for me its lust!
… I totally concur with your (Like”) as you put it, of this period Oldsmobile. I still have an original 1950-52 Oldsmobile NOS Accessory Self Winding Clock Steering Wheel Assembly that I bought over the Dealership Counter in 1958, such nice guys they even included the showroom poster. I bought all this to put into a period Olds that never came about. I’ll include some photos.
Is Eddy still alive?
Hells yeah! I stop and see him a few times a year out at Wahoo but he's slowed down with building 49-51 Olds cars.
