Hemmings Find of the Day – 1961 Oldsmobile Starfire convertible

Published in

1961 Oldsmobile Starfire convertible for sale. From the seller’s description:

The Starfire was the top-of-the-line Oldsmobile in 1961, and available only as a convertible. Performance cars were just coming into their own and Oldsmobile jumped in with a sporty convertible that packed a muscular 394 cubic inch V8, special trim and beautiful bucket seats to create a fantastic gentleman’s express.

Oldsmobiles were all-new in 1961, losing some size and dropping the excesses of the ’50s, and instead looking forward to the jet age. The entire car gives the illusion of motion, from the special aluminum panels that sweep across the sides of the car, to the little “winglets” at the lower edge of the rear quarters. Finding one of these in any condition is a rare thing, with only 7800 or so being built

Power Windows, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Vinyl Interior, Heat, Power Convertible Top, Defrost, AM Radio.

I have owned the vehicle for over 10 years and have made many maintenance repairs, including the brakes overhauled, transmission overhauled, front end overhauled including new ball joints, and new radial tires only a few years old. The car is an excellent driver and has been displayed in the North-East Car Museum. It is and older restoration with some recent small rust spots showing up mostly in the doors (see pics).
