Description

This 1940 Oldsmobile Model 90 four-door sedan has been transformed into a luxury street rod by the addition of a modern General Motors powertrain and a full leather interior, cooled by aftermarket air conditioning. The seller describes the custom maroon metallic paint is as being in “very good condition, with very good interior leather and carpeting,” and he reports no known functional issues. This Model 90 is powered by a General Motors Goodwrench-branded aftermarket 350-cu.in. crate V-8 engine of unspecified age and is mated to a GM Turbo Hydra-Matic 350 three-speed automatic transmission.
