    '53 LA Olds Ambassador, incredible original condition

    For sale, an Olds Ambassador I've been loving, but thinning the herd for more. Serial #14xxx. She's got nearly all her orig lacquer STILL intact, sharp engraving, pristine lead pipe, original, functional case AND the original shop warranty card from the LA Olds factory. The valves are like new. No blowback. I had an eyeball PVA done and cleaned her up nice. Pretty rare stuff.

    She plays beautifully: bold, strong tone that post War era Olds are known for. The sound resembles the Mendez, in fact. Very solid footfalls. Even scale. Resembles almost exactly the Ambassador I found for Tower of Power's own Bill Lamb, which he played for years. PayPal only or cash local in Los Angeles, CONUS only, add $30 for insured shipping. Case and optional Olds mpc included. More pics upon request.

    $395 plus shipping as indicated
