A complete, frame-off restoration of a California-built car, this 1957 Oldsmobile Super 88 was originally equipped with a 371 cubic inch J-2 engine, power brakes, power steering, a six-way power seat, and a Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. Today, it is offered in beautifully restored condition, and to the best of the consignor knowledge, retains its original engine.

In preparation for a very attractive base coat/clear coat enamel finish, the body was sandblasted while the doors, fenders, hood, and trunk lid were acid-dipped and epoxy-coated. In addition, the frame was sandblasted and painted, the suspension was completely rebuilt, and the firewall was smoothed. Restored for driving enjoyment, the car now features a long list of upgrades, including a Turbo Hydra-Matic 400 transmission, electric windshield wipers, an electric fuel pump, front disc brakes, an alternator, Hot Rod Air, rear air shocks, a custom exhaust, and a custom under-dash panel housing the gauges, CD player, and AC outlets.

Offered complete with the original vacuum linkage for the carburetors, this very attractive Super 88 also includes a handsome interior with dramatic tri-tone upholstery. It will certainly continue to be a great example of the refined Oldsmobile models of the 1950s, with the added bonus of improved drivability.
