1960 Olds from Germany

Postby goldenolds on Sun Aug 17, 2008 4:23 pm

Hi guys,
my name is Mario and i come from Germany.
My car is a 1960 Olds Super 88 Celebrity Sedan which was sold by SCRIPTURE OLDSMOBILE in San Rafael, CA.
The Olds was sold on March 3. 1960 to a man from Santa Rosa, CA. I have all the papers including Owners Manual, Owners Protection Policy, 30.000 Mile Guarantee Certificate and the original Bill of Sale.
In 1991 the car was sold to a German guy who brought it to Germany. Then 6 years later i saw the car, in original condition, at a dealer near my hometown.

I was impressed about the size and there were no fins what makes the car even longer. It was love at first sight, this was the car i wanted to own. The engine was not running because of the heads and the intake was missing. I made a deal with the guys there and they built in a chevy 350/350 combo.
It works. In 1997, me and my wife drove all summer long to all the small and big car-meetings. But after that we decided that it was time to do some things like replacing the carpet, the headliner and a litle bit more. That was the beginning of a complete restauration which was finished in 1999. Since then we had only much fun with our GoldenOlds.

I hope you understand what i wrote because my english is not so good. :roll:

Willkommen!! Your English seems fine. I took a year of German classes in college, but I'm afraid I've forgotten most of it because I never had a chance to use it. Great looking car though! I love the color. You should post some pictures of the interior if the get the chance, I'd love to see what the inside of it looks like. I'm always surprised by how many of these are all around the world...right on this board there are folks in France, New Zealand, and now Germany. Anyway, thanks for introducing yourself, that's a great looking '60 you have there!
Welcome aboard, and feel free to post any time you like!
Cheers,
Scott

How cool is that!?
I was in Germany during June this year. Of course, Munich but, Germany. There is a guy from Major's 60 Club that has a car someplace in Germany. We tried to connect. Didn't happen.

To super88dan:
I only know one guy with a 60 Olds who is a member of Major´s Club and this is his Car.

Unfortunately i didn´t know his name or his Adress. I saw the car only three times since i have mine.

To toolbox:
I have only this two photos from the interior:

In the next time i will put some pictures of european olds on this site and also i want to show you the pictures of the resto of my car. But it will take some time to do that because at first i must upload them to photobucket.

Very nice!! That's an interesting color combination...I don't know if I've seen that before. Looks great though. I bet it gets a lot of attention :shock: . That green one looks nice too. Your front seat looks different too...I'm not sure I've seen one with that pattern before. And yes, please feel free to post as many pictures as you like...everyone likes pictures 8) .

I also noticed in your signature you have a '73 Chevy truck...I used to have one too. It was lifted and 35" tires...it was big and ugly. You can see some pictures of it here:
http://forum.1960oldsmobile.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=113

Great truck...too bad I had to sell it to pay for the mini-van :oops: . Oh well. I'll get another one someday.
Anyway, great looking Olds you have there!
Cheers,
Scott

P.S.--Love the fuzzy dice! I've got a pair in mine too...

The inlays are made of Mercedes-fabric. It was the only fabric that had matching colours with the carpet and the vinyl.

Hey, I had an eighty Cordoba. 318 two barrel, automatic. Piece of crap. But, It did the job for the time. I'm so not a Chrysler guy.
