I'm betting this is not a 36K mile car. My guess is that it had more than that when Sawyer's (Belleville, IL) bought it.

Yes, I think it might be 136K. Knowing those engines fairly well though, even at 136K miles, it would only need rebuilding if it was abused, badly overheated, or run out of oil. In any event, the mileage, or the reasons why the engine was rebuilt, might be overshadowed by its low price and the fact that the new owner will probably be very happy with this car, again that is my opinion.

How do we know it has a low price? It is currently at $6600 "Reserve Not Met". We have no idea as to what the seller's expectations are.

This is also true, but it looks worth the current bid price to me.

Ok I confess I looked at the pictures on the big screen and Kurt was right lot of slop on the picture of that left center door. Can't under stand people that would rather try to paper off a door sill then take out 4 screws. But you see it a lot.

I am a fan of the 71 through 76 Olds Ninety Eights, they were great cars in the day and they still are, at least in my opinion. I actually like this car, flaws and all!
With all of the lights and accessories I wonder if the alternator and batteries would be sufficient.

If it has the 145 amp Delco alternator installed, it shouldn't have any problems keeping up.
