OFFERED WITHOUT RESERVE

The Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight model was always the top model car that Olds offered. In 1953, it was made even richer with a limited production run late in the model year. It was called the Fiesta, a now very rare five-passenger convertible. The Fiesta had nearly every option that was offered by Olds, including a wraparound windshield, spinner wheel covers, and attractive two-tone paint schemes available in exclusive colors. Each car was equipped with power steering, brakes, windows and seats. The only option that was not fitted was factory air conditioning which was deemed as unnecessary for a convertible in the era. The interiors were available in broadcloth, gabardine or leather. The Fiesta is arguably the rarest of the 1953 GM production cars with only 458 of these convertibles being built; it is logically thought that far fewer have survived. The Fiesta offered here is presented with white and blue two-tone paint and matched with white and blue two-tone upholstery. The interior also features a padded dash, AM radio, a Deluxe steering wheel and horn ring. Under the hood is a 303-cid Rocket V-8 engine fueled by a four-barrel carburetor and producing 170-hp. All the Olds models came standard with a three-speed manual transmission. However, the Fiesta came standard with a Hydra-Matic transmission, which was a $132 option on any other model. The two-tone exterior is highlighted with nice brightwork, white power convertible top and wide whitewall tires.
