GREAT EXAMPLE OF ONE OF AMERICAS EARLY POSTWAR PERFORMERS
 
Following WW II, American automobile buyers progressed from seeking basic, economical transportation and began demanding more comfort, power, and style than ever before. Oldsmobile answered the call with increasingly well-equipped models and especially in terms of performance with the release of the Rocket V-8 engine in 1949, upsized to 324 CI with 200 HP by 1954. It also influenced the eras popular culture as the inspiration for Ike Turner and his Rhythm Kings hit Rocket 88, likely the first rock n roll song ever recorded.

Featuring the most desirable 2-door Holiday Hardtop Coupe body style, this 1954 Oldsmobile 88 is especially desirable to collectors and marque enthusiasts in exceptionally original overall condition, complemented by a newer repaint in two-tone Light and Dark Green. Accents include gleaming brightwork, painted steel wheels, Spinner wheel covers and wide whitewall tires. Inside, the front seat is preserved underneath a fitted plastic covering. Desirable features include a clock, pushbutton radio and heater, plus added seat belts. Benefiting from obviously good care through the years, the 88s 324 CI, 200 HP Rocket V-8 engine and its surrounding engine bay are unrestored, yet highly original and well preserved, with factory labels, markings and ancillary items still in place. A Hydra-Matic four-speed automatic transmission delivers cruising ease. Considered by many to be Americas first muscle car, the early Oldsmobile 88 was renowned for the performance delivered by its combination of a lighter-weight body/chassis and powerful Rocket OHV V-8 engine. Heres your chance to experience it for yourself with this highly original example from 1954. Contact us today to see it and add it to your collection!
