6.0L Vortec–Powered 1950 Oldsmobile Futuramic 88 Club Coupe Street Rod

This 1950 Oldsmobile Futuramic 88 Club Coupe was acquired by the late owner in 2016 and was built into a street rod by Quality Restorations & Street Rods in Port Orchard, Washington, between 2017 and 2021. A 6.0-liter Vortec V8 with FiTech electronic fuel injection was installed, and the engine is backed by a 4L80E four-speed automatic transmission, a Ford 9” rear end, and a limited-slip differential. Finished in black, the body is mounted to a Scott’s Hotrods custom-fabricated frame that is equipped with an independent front suspension, adjustable coilovers, four-wheel disc brakes, power steering, and Rocket Racing 15” wheels. The interior is trimmed in gray cloth and features air conditioning, a push-button AM radio, and Dakota Digital instrumentation. This modified Oldsmobile is now offered by the seller on behalf of the late owner’s estate with manufacturer’s literature, build records and photos, spare parts, and a Washington title.

The body was stripped and repaired, the seams and cavities were treated with POR15, and epoxy sealer was applied before the car was finished in black acrylic urethane paint. A single-piece windshield was installed, the exterior brightwork was polished or refinished, and the windshield, weatherstripping, and badges were replaced. The seller notes that the right headlight bezel is scratched, and replacement windshield wipers have not been installed but will accompany the car.

Rocket Racing 15” wheels have gray-finished centers and are mounted with BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires measuring 235/60 up front and 255/60 out back. The replacement chassis is from Scott’s Hotrods of Knoxville, Tennessee, and features an independent front suspension and adjustable coilovers all around. The car is equipped with electric power steering, and braking is handled by four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with Wilwood calipers.

The bench seats and door panels were retrimmed in two-tone gray cloth by Stitches Custom Auto Upholstery of Poulsbo, Washington, and color-coordinated carpeting lines the floors. An Old Air climate-control system has been added, and a Super Deluxe AM radio is located in the center of the two-tone painted dashboard. Black bedliner material has been applied to the trunk floor. The seller notes that the parcel-shelf cover is missing, and the glovebox liner, sun visors, and kick panels are not currently installed; these items are included in the sale and shown in the photo gallery below.
