Following up on its remarkable postwar success, GMs Oldsmobile division went from strength to strength during the 1950s, offering more of everything that its upscale buyers demanded. For 1957, styling was refined and accented by tasteful bright trim and two-tone color schemes for both paint and interior upholstery. The potent Oldsmobile Rocket V-8 engine grew to 371 cubic inches and the optional NASCAR racing-derived J-2 triple-carburetor intake system raised output to an honest 300 horsepower. Oldsmobiles trendsetting Holiday Hardtops continued in both Coupe and Sedan form on the Super 88 and 98 lines, befitting their status as Oldsmobiles best-selling models for 1957. 
 
Powered by the top optional 371 CI V-8 engine with J-2 triple carburetors developing 300 factory-rated horsepower, this 1957 Oldsmobile 88 Holiday Hardtop Coupe is a very attractive example sporting a smart two-tone Gray and White paint finish and Red and Black interior combination. Its 73,000 miles are believed actual. Features and options include Olds Jetaway Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, plus a pushbutton radio, power antenna, power brakes and power steering for an enjoyable driving experience. Comprehensive service work was performed recently, including installation of new wheel cylinders, brake shoes and power booster, rebuilding of the radiator and carburetors, installation of a new electronic fuel pump, spark plug wires and spark plugs and an oil change. New Coker wide whitewall radial tires surround Red painted steel wheels mounting full bright factory wheel covers for a great look. Additionally, a completely new exhaust system is freshly installed. Renowned for its power, style and high-level appointments, this J-2 1957 Oldsmobile 88 is simply a great example of one of the best American automobiles of the 1950s.
