32k-Mile 1962 Oldsmobile F-85
Current Bid: $3,800 (USD) by:
This 1962 Oldsmobile F-85 is a well-preserved and mechanically-sorted 32k-mile 4-door sedan purchased by the seller in 2004 with only 5,842 documented miles. Power is provided by a 215ci V8 paired with a 3-speed automatic transmission, and the car features power-assisted steering and power brakes. Finished in Pacific Mist over a black and silver vinyl interior, this first-generation F-85 is now offered with extensive original purchase documentation, maintenance, and mileage records, and a clear California title in the seller’s name.
The body is finished in its original Pacific Mist (Code P) with a white top. The seller describes the car as a true survivor with original paint, except for a repair addressing a scratch on the right-rear door. Photos show the condition of the paint and trim in close-up.
Factory 14” steel wheels with full covers are wrapped in whitewall tires that were replaced in 2017. Handling is managed by power-assisted steering and power brakes. Included maintenance records document braking system work performed within the past 4k miles.
The interior is trimmed in the original two-tone black and silver vinyl (951) with matching door panels and carpet. Vintage-style lap belts were added for safety, and the dash has a black upper pad and "F-Eighty-Five" script on the passenger side. Equipment includes a nonoperational AM radio in the dash and a new Pioneer AM/FM stereo inside the glove box. The trunk is carpeted in gray and houses a spare tire.
Instrumentation is framed by a 2-spoke steering wheel and consists of a 120-mph speedometer, an analog clock, fuel gauge, and warning lights for voltage, coolant temperature, and oil pressure. The 5-digit odometer shows just under 32k miles, and the total is accurate per the seller and supporting documentation.
The matching-numbers aluminum 215ci V8 has been maintained regularly, including a recent oil and filter change and replacement motor mounts in March 2021. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a 3-speed automatic transmission with a column-mounted shift lever.
Additional photos showing the underside are available in the gallery.

Smith on July 20, 1962, the original, never-removed Protect-O-Plate, and envelope dated August 31, 1962; the Pre-Delivery & 1k-mile inspection form; a change of ownership document (Certificate of Title) from Ms. Smith to Beverly J. Hillard dated January 5, 1990; the bill of sale to the current owner dated February 2, 2004; and repair & maintenance receipts from current and previous owner.
