Beautiful 1937 Oldsmobile Six for sale with some pretty neat history! This is the original California Oldsmobile Series F-37 four door trunk sedan used in two major movies, Golden Gate starring Matt Dillon and the remake of Treasure Island in 1990. The Olds F37 has such a classic mid-30's design. It is the second year for the turret top. Finished in Tulipwood Brown. This 1937 Oldsmobile Series F-37 four door trunk sedan has a 230 CID 6-cylinder engine producing 95 horsepower. A three-speed sliding gear floor shift transmission guided the Olds to quiet Sunday afternoon driving speeds. Weighing in at 3395 pounds this car had a 117" wheelbase and cost $945 at the factory in Lansing back in 1937. The car runs and drives as beautiful as it looks, a perfect club or Sunday tour car.
Current owner since about 2006, previous owner from the Silicon Valley owned 25 years and restored by him in the 1980's. Paint is lacquer, car has excellent chrome and rubber, tight suspension, nice glass and excellent overall condition. It has obviously been properly stored as evidenced by the absolute minimal amount of patina. My first impression was one of a 8-10 year old restoration, and a quite nice one at that! The car was restored 1100 miles ago and driven very little, yet regularly since for local club meetings and such. The engine had a full rebuild and essentially everything was done to the car just 1,170 miles ago. While an older restoration, it has been impeccably maintained and looks much more recent. It was used in the remake of the movie Treasure Island in 1990 starring Charlton Heston who played Long John Silver and Christian Bale playing the part of Jim Hawkins. It was used again in the movie Golden Gate which was released in 1994 and starred Matt Dillon. It comes with a clear California title and lots of goodies that are rare and close to impossible to find.

The radio and wipers are currently inoperable but spare working ones are included with the car. It also appears that the lighter is missing. Other than these issues, the car starts, runs and drives magnificently, it purrs like a kitten and the braking and handling are terrific. This is such a lovely 1937 Oldsmobile and will certainly make it's new owner proud and pleased!
