It's a beautiful car. I would have preferred it minus the fender skirts.

I agree John...the paint appears not to match the rest of the car.

The best year for Oldsmobile in the 60s.

I bought it from an attorney who had his offices in the bank I worked for in 1990.  He had a problem, he had nine collector Oldsmobile's and only room for eight in his garage.  I owned the car until 2001.

Funny thing about those skirts.  NO they weren't exactly the same color as the car, but when I'd take them off, I just didn't like the look of the car without them.  And I'll point out that the paint difference was mostly noticeable on a sunny day.  Honest.

Photo of a photo, so sorry about the quality.

Beautiful Olds George, my favorite year and a 4-door hardtop too!  It must have been hard to part with it.
