Performance, luxury, and a truly unique presentation we already know why you're attracted to this 1963 Oldsmobile Starfire. After all, with the high compression 394 V8 under the hood, loaded A/C interior, and a truly unique presentation, this is an all-around stunner that's turn-key ready for you right now.

The Starfire's original mission was to be Oldsmobile's large personal luxury machine with plenty of boastful detail. That's why it has such a standout presence even in its refined and factory-correct color of Cirrus Blue. But what really makes this generation Starfire so memorable is the bright work. Those hallmark sweeping sides will draw the crowds in from across the show field, and they highlight just how straight the bodywork is on this drop top. But this classic is so much more. Olds proved even in the mid-60s that it was the best at integrating bumpers into the sheet metal design. And then you see the details, like the turbine style wheels with hints of blue, and the sharp trim line that starts right after the doors and helps to create a hint of tailfin. So while the standout side trim will draw in attention, it's all the unique elements that make up a top-of-the-line Starfire that will keep people talking.

Beneath the white roof is a white interior, so you get a great color coordination with the light blue no matter if the top is on or off. As we've mentioned before, this was the true upper-class Olds, and so few were willing to pay the premium. There were less than 4,500 produced in '63 (and just imagine how many survived to be this complete today.) So it came with some rare features as standard. This includes desirable items like leather seating, power adjusting front buckets, and the bright center console with the unique tach mounted in the center. Spanning the entire width of the car, the dashboard houses everything from the extra-long speedometer to all the essential bright knobs and buttons and you can see it all easily thanks to the thin dual-spoke factory steering wheel. You might have noticed that this Starfire has plenty of room to carry family and friends, but you can have fun in this car all on your own. After all, with features like a power convertible top and power windows, you never even have to leave the driver's seat to go from enclosed luxury to a wind-in-your-hair experience.

The big gun in Oldsmobile's arsenal was the "Ultra High Compression" 394 cubic-inch V8. It's neatly detailed with a big air cleaner and correct decals, and the red motor underneath looks like it's radiating power from within the dark engine bay. The dual exhaust even offers a hit of this power without being too boisterous. In fact, that's the full Olds experience. It has a nice cruiser-level ride with the versatile Roto-Hydramatic automatic transmission. Plus, the power steering and power brakes were part of a package designed to make this a care-free driving experience.

With power and poise, this Starfire is truly a fantastic droptop that people rarely see on the vintage car scene today. So if you're ready for real distinction, call today!
