1948 Oldsmobile 98 Ram Jet 502

Gateway Classic Cars of St. Louis is proud to present this 1948 Oldsmobile 98 Convertible Custom! Look no further because this is by far the nicest Oldsmobile 98 available in the country, if not the world. There was no expense spared during this build and the listing price is a mere fraction of the cost to build this vehicle.

Under the hood of this 1948 Oldsmobile 98 Convertible Custom is a GM Performance crate engine. This particular crate engine is a 502 Ram Jet V8 Big Block that has plenty of horsepower and torque. The horsepower is over 500 and the torque is well beyond 500. For any car enthusiasts this is a fantastic car. With the power adjustable seats it does not matter your shape or size, you will fit in this car. With the powerful engine, and built 700R4 transmission (1,800 RPM stall) you can simply cruise on down the road breaking every neck along the way, or you can put the hammer down and put on a smoke show at the end of every car show. Just forward of the custom chrome tipped exhaust built into the chrome bumper is a Posi-Traction 9” Currie rear end with 3.73 gears. Some people may call this car a boat, but the parts used make this car handle like a brand new sports car. Look behind the beautiful wheels at the drilled and slotted rotors with Baer brakes slowing everything down.

When the builder took on this project he took his time sourcing three vehicles to supply parts to make this one beauty you see here. You cannot order parts for these just anywhere so finding good donors was necessary. Every detail was poured over to make sure this car kept as much original styling as possible, but had every modern upgrade and creature comfort. The door panels are custom, the woodgrain dash is custom painted, the black exterior paint is in fantastic condition. The convertible boot cover is leather wrapped over a custom piece of aluminum. The latch that secures the convertible boot is the same latch used to secure the top to the vehicle when it is up. Every inch of this car that is not original was done in the best taste imaginable. To help dissipate the heat from the motor the fenders have vents in them. Take this car to shows and you will win. Whether you are showing off the engine, exterior, undercarriage, or anything in between this is truly the gift that keeps on giving.
