    I like this comment in the listing:
    What trend? Have any Oldsmobile clamshell wagons, or any clamshell wagons, crossed the block at either of these auction houses in, say, the last 10 years? The last 20? Ever?


    Regardless of his breathless comments, it does look to be in excellent shape. Well-optioned, too.

    From this photo we can see that the shoulder belts have been removed.

    Also, it has a trip odometer, but the trip odometer reset knob/button is missing. That's a weird thing to happen.

    Auction ended just a moment ago "because the item is no longer available." He must have sold it locally.

    Current bid still pretty low. Local CL ad for the vehicle has an asking price of $17k.........

    I think he's quickly learning what the true market for these is.
