This 1947 Oldsmobile Special Series 66 Club Sedan has a great custom style that gives you the right upgraded elements while respecting its vintage roots
It all makes for a sleek V8 machine that’s ready to hit the streets and command attention.
How does a classic instantly look so modern? You start by expertly shaving the trim. That means the door handles, fender trim, badges, and more were removed without a trace. That creates an ideal setting to lay down the glossy red that highlights terrific design elements like the curvy fenders and the sleek rear end. But since this is a true classic American, they left room for the right brightwork in places like the distinct grille, smooth wraparound bumpers, and 17-inch polished Ridler wheels. And while this gives you a very modern style, there’s still plenty of room for vintage hot rod flair, too. You see it in the car-eye headlight covers w/Olds logo, dual spotlights, rear denser skirts, blue-dot taillights, and full length custom pinstriping.
This is the kind of classic you’re going to want to drive everywhere, and you also know family and friends will want to come along, too. That’s why the interior was customized to be comfy. Two rows of bench seats are finished in a nice tan upholstery, and the carpeting feels plush. There are provisions for some nice features. For example, this is ready for a new stereo that will connect to the full upgraded subwoofer speaker system. And you just need to replace a switch to restore function to the adjustable air ride suspension. And because this is built with driving in mind, you get an upgraded sports steering wheel, tilt column, and cleanly mounted auxiliary readouts.
The dark inner walls of the engine bay funnel your attention to the 350 cubic-inch V8 in the middle. Not only is the block painted nice and bright, but there’s also plenty of polish on the air grabber, brake booster, and valve covers. You already know these GM motors are hardy powerhouses that love modifications, but it’s also nice to have something that already looks this fresh and runs strong. In fact, the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and modern tires all make this classic Olds an excellent cruiser in today’s world.
