From the looks of the set up it was used to pull that boat next to it at one time.

Thanks for posting this, Joe. It seems Olds pro cars are much more rare than Cadillacs and while the styling is less ornate than the Cadillac, I'm really taken with their body lines/styling/uniqueness etc. Again, great post, Joe.

PS. Is the glass interchangeable with a 70 ? I found a rough one nearer me and I'm sorely tempted to pull the trigger and buy.

65 Is the first year for commercial glass coaches from C/B windshields are the same from 65-70 and changed in 71 .71-76 are the same, side glass and back glass might be the same but the windshields are different.

be nice to see the inside it may be a combo. but with those mirrors I'm betting your right Joe. they most likely pulled the engine for the boat and have given up on both.

Finally hooked up with the seller. Roof had some rust and the doors ,not bad but with the engine out and other things to much of a project ,so I made a offer on this stuff and brought it home. I only found 4 of the thumb screw,s that I assume are for the removable panels? I could not find any attaching hardware on the rear windows it looks like the thumb screws go thru the panels into some threaded holes in the body?

MM used the same thumb screw for there movable seat. they were a brass screw. they just drilled and taped the window molding to mount them.

That is what was on the body just some tapped holes. I thought it might be missing some brackets or hardware. Thanks
