You can call or text Roger at 817-995-6528
This is a running & driving 53 Olds. It has the original 303 Rocket V8 engine with a factory standard shift transmission.
It runs, drives & stops. The battery is good & the generator has been converted to an alternator. The engine starts right up & the clutch & transmission are good & smooth, easy to drive.
The bad part is:
The speedo broke at 71,085 miles. True mileage is unknown.
The engine does smoke a little but hits on all 8 cylinders.
There is about 1/8 of a turn of slack in the steering wheel.
Needs a complete interior, seats are there but will need covering.
There is one window garnish missing,off the passenger front door.
There is one small dent in the trunk lid just above the license plate.
Going to need tail light lenses.
There are a lot of good things though like:
No lower end noises like mains or inserts.
New exhaust system already installed.
Wide White Walls on all 4 corners.
Some really nice old school pinstriping.
No rust through in the floors, trunk & rocker panels.
Decent driver paint. An older paint job but looks good at 20 feet.
A clear blue Texas Title & the Form 130-U.
It is a project that can be driven while you fix it up.
All lights work including the blinkers.
Gas gauge works!
Look at the pictures, I took them today, July 9, 2018. They are large clear pics & should show everything you need to see.
