Thanks for looking at my listing... This is a 1950 Oldsmobile rocket 88. I bought it from a gentleman in central Texas about 6 months ago with the hopes of getting her back on the road... I have since run out of time and space to make that happen... I haven't had a chance to give the car a thorough inspection but it is straight and bone dry. I put a new battery in it but could not get the motor to crank... It has oil in the bottom end and isn't leaking. It is missing a few pieces in the engine bay which you can see in the pictures. There are an assortment of parts in the trunk, including the intake manifold, wiper motors, fuel pump, and some other odds and ends... The transmission shifts but without a running motor it is impossible for me to tell you anymore about it. The brake pedal goes to the floor and it is missing a radiator. the side glass is cracked and there is a chip in the windshield. From the pictures you can see what kind of shape the interior and body is in... I have 2 correct Rochester backdraft carburetors to go with it, one is rebuild and ready to go right on. If you have any questions feel free to ask and I will do my best to get you some answers. I have a clear title for the car.

Ever since Gran Turismo 4, Jay Leno has had at least one of his cars included in the popular racing simulator (starting with the Tank Car), and more of his machines appears in Gran Turismo 6. They include this nose-heavy, front-wheel-drive V8-powered muscle car. Yes, that aptly describes a 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado - except Leno's is rear-wheel drive. And it has a Cadillac CTS-V race engine modified to pump out 1,070 horsepower.
For the latest Jay Leno's Garage episode, he takes his real Toronado out for a cruise and then drives the virtual one like he stole it, accruing some body damage along the way. Leno also drives the virtual supercar Mercedes-Benz designed for GT6, the AMG Vision Gran Turismo Concept that debuted at the LA Auto Show, along with the real one, which is a 1:1-scale model. The model is radio-controlled and equipped with a small electric motor, sufficient to move it on and off of auto show floors.
Head below to watch the episode, which includes a few words from GT6 creator Kazunori Yamauchi.
