Gentlemen, many thanks for your kind comments.
I’ve also heard the Olds Wagon is hard to get, could be my fault, I have 2 one to keep as standard and one to work on, it will probably be my next project.
Raymond, I completely agree with your list of favourites, all beautifully styled cars. I’m afraid I too now buy fewer Brooklin’s because of the price.
David, to polish the paint I smooth over very lightly with 1200 grade emery. Next I polish with a paint restorer such as T Cut, but very carefully as it is so easy to go through the lacquer, washing off the residue with water and washing up liquid. Finally I finish off with car body polish. Your Olds ads are great, have you seen the movie ad on You Tube?
Ralf, I love your fastback collection, I have many of the same models.
Rick, I meant to try to add the B44 emblem on the grille, but forgot!!
Thanks again guys.

You are correct Raymond. The side trim should not be painted red. by Lou Petrucci #27290.2.2.1
(PIC) So this might be an over-restored car? by Ralf Buyer #27290.2.2.1.1
It may be Ralf. I checked Oldsmobile ads for that year and didn’t by Lou Petrucci #27290.2.2.1.1.1
