Following up on its remarkable postwar success, GMs Oldsmobile division went from strength to strength during the 1950s, offering more of everything that choosy buyers demanded. For 1957, styling was refined and accented by a new three-window rear treatment, 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, at the cost of just $83. Oldsmobiles trendsetting Holiday Hardtops continued in both Coupe and Sedan form on both the 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 Super 88 Holiday Hardtop Coupe is a highly attractive example throughout with exceptional integrity, benefiting from a frame-on restoration. Sporting outstanding black and white two-tone livery inside and out and a very well preserved interior, this 88 is also equipped with an AM radio and power brakes, plus Oldsmobiles extra-cost optional Jetaway automatic transmission. A fresh and comprehensive suspension service included the ball joints, control arms, shock absorbers, and front sway bar. Other highlights include dual exhaust and a set of fresh tires mounting correct steel wheels and Olds iconic Flipper hubcaps. In addition to a spare tire and roadside jack, this J-2 car also comes with service records and a fresh detailing. Renowned for its power, style and high-level appointments, this J-2 1957 Oldsmobile 88 is a great example of one of the best-performing and most desirable American automobiles of the late 1950s.
