Have you ever seen one of these before? Oldsmobile built only 2,707 six passenger Series 66 Station Wagons in 1948, all with combined wood and steel bodies built by Fisher. This one has been done right, by professionals with sympathy for the car, its presentation and the quality of the materials and workmanship employed. While it is everywhere sharp, crisp and tidy, nowhere is it overdone. Finished in Maroon with a combined interior using Tan cloth and Maroon vinyl, the wood work everywhere is simply outstanding, with bright clear varnish over meticulously finished light wood framing and darker panels. The 100hp L-head six cylinder engine looks like it just came off the assembly line in Lansing (where this Oldsmobile was built) and drives through a Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. It is equipped with a clock and radio in an elaborately detailed dashboard, has a remotely-operated spotlight, and wide whitewall tires on steel wheels with hubcaps and trim rings. The body is distinguished by a very unusual pair of rear wheel fender skirts with a large Oldsmobile emblem. It is to all intents and purposes flawlessly presented and one of the most rare and unusual automobiles available today. Even among woodie wagons this 1948 Oldsmobile is rare, an example that will make its presence felt on any show field.
