Full frame-off multi-year restoration completed in 2008.  Garage kept and lightly used since.  Car is still fresh and show quality.  There were no deviations from original during the restoration.  This is the correct factory Royal Glow paint with tri-color interior.  370ci/300hp V8 with Olds Hydra-Matic automatic transmission.  Power windows, seat, steering and brakes.  Engine and transmission were totally rebuilt and the car runs, shifts, stops and drives like new.  It is whisper-quiet when running.  All lights, gauges and accessories work, except for the factory radio, but there is an aftermarket unit mounted discreetly under the dash which utilizes upgraded speakers in the factory locations.  Fully detailed engine compartment.  The car comes with a correctly painted, mint-condition continental kit that is currently stored in the trunk.  The 98 Holiday Coupe was expensive when new.  It was Olds' top-of-the-line offering and  is rarer than the lower-priced Super 88 series but the longer chassis provides for a better-proportioned automobile.  A complete photo history of the restoration is available as wells as a folder full of receipts.  This may be one of the best 1957 Olds Starfire 98 hardtops in the world and if you like this color, you will probably never see another one. The only issues are the fuel gauge works intermittently and the lower seat trim is for a non-power seat car, meaning that there are no seat switches.  The seat motor works but you have to manually jump the wires to move the seat.  I'm 5'11" so if you are close to that, you won't have to move the seat. I am a serious car collector with about a dozen nice cars at any one time.  I have bought and sold cars at all the major auctions and actually submitted this one to Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale next month.  As you may know, all cars at B-J are sold with no reserve so the day and time your car crosses the block is a very important consideration in deciding whether to take the risk.   They gave me a Thursday afternoon lot number and I think the car deserves better than that, so I turned them down.
