Oldsmobile Starfire 1966 Description

Performance, luxury, and a truly unique presentation we already know why you're attracted to this 1966 Oldsmobile Starfire. After all, with the original high compression 425 V8 under the hood and loaded A/C interior, it's more than just a pretty face at an affordable price.The Starfire's original mission was to be Oldsmobile's large personal luxury coupe, but with more cubic inches under the hood than even a 442, it cannot help but be a little boastful. That's why it's great to see an investment in the glossy red paint that really pops in the sunlight thanks to modern clearcoats. Plus, the dual white stripe package looks great on this well-creased sheetmeatal. In fact, speaking of the body, take a moment to appreciate what this one has to offer. The wraparound chrome bumpers that cleanly integrate into the extra wide front and rear panels; the sporty silhouette of the hardtop design; the impossibly long curve of the rear window; and sheetmetal that has a sporty kick-up integrated into the rear fender. This is '60s styling at its best, and you see it perfectly in a coupe where the hood lines up nicely and the doors shut with authority. And this performance image would not be complete without an upgrade to iconic Cragar SS wheels. With bucket seats and a center console, this was the envy on the neighborhood in '66. Premium Oldsmobiles had a great dual luxury and performance spirit that is represented quite nicely here. The color and pattern on the parchment seats nicely match the door panels and headliner. But the carpeting and dash are black so you don't have to worry about dusting off your shoes before entering. This is a full-size coupe, so there's plenty of room for family and friends, but the best treats are reserved for the driver. You'll love getting behind the original steering wheel and looking at the full gauge package, including the speedometer set in the deep "V". And just ahead of the gearshift on the center console is a cool factory tach. But the feature you'll love the most are the power windows. You can roll all of them down without ever having to leave the driver's seat. So it's easy to show off the great pillarless hardtop profile. Even better is the factory air conditioning means you can stay cool while doing it, too.Under the hood is the original numbers-matching 425 cubic-inch V8. The Starfire motor has the same reputation and similar makeup to the rest of the famous Rocket big block line. This high-compression V8 produced some of the best power of the era, and it still is a force to be reckoned with today thanks to an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. And everyone will know that this big coupe has big power every time they hear the rumble of the dual exhaust. But what you really want to know is how this one glides down the road like a true big block luxury car should. Features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and the grip of BF Goodrich radial tires give this a true '60s cruiser feeling.This is a cared for two-owner classic (the consignor had it for 31 years.) It even comes with a ton of paperwork, including the factory buildsheet, original warranty card, owner's manual, window sticker, and maintenance records. It's a truly fantastic coupe that people rarely see on the vintage car scene today. So at this price, we know it will be going to a new home soon. Call today!!!
