UPDATED CHASSIS, PWR FRNT DISCS/STEERING, 350 V8, AUTO, DUALS, GREAT DRIVER!!!

Tired of looking at Tri-Five Chevys and their sky-high prices? What if we could offer you a car that is just as handsome, offers more space, an updated chassis, and better performance, all for a fraction of the price? Take a good, long look at this awesome 1955 Oldsmobile 88 and decide if a Bel Air is really worth twice as much. I think you'll find that there's a lot to love here.

If you wanted horsepower with your luxury, Oldsmobile delivered. With a lovely restyled body that was cutting edge in 1955, the Olds definitely looks the part of a heavy cruiser from the '50s. The two-tone combination of Polar White over Twilight Blue is definitely 1950s cool, and the dazzling trim that separates the two colors was an Oldsmobile exclusive that made these cars easy to identify from a hundred feet away. Paint and bodywork were finished in the 1990s, and even thought it has some time and use on it, this Olds looks great even close up. Of course, chrome is a big issue on any car of this period and you're in luck because all the brightwork is in good shape, from the massive grille up front to the delicate taillight surrounds with bullet-shaped lenses.

The 88 was Oldsmobile's bread-and-butter, but ... Please ask for the full description.

UPDATED CHASSIS, PWR FRNT DISCS/STEERING, 350 V8, AUTO, DUALS, GREAT DRIVER!!!

Tired of looking at Tri-Five Chevys and their sky-high prices? What if we could offer you a car that is just as handsome, offers more space, an updated chassis, and better performance, all for a fraction of the price? Take a good, long look at this awesome 1955 Oldsmobile 88 and decide if a Bel Air is really worth twice as much. I think you'll find that there's a lot to love here.

If you wanted horsepower with your luxury, Oldsmobile delivered. With a lovely restyled body that was cutting edge in 1955, the Olds definitely looks the part of a heavy cruiser from the '50s. The two-tone combination of Polar White over Twilight Blue is definitely 1950s cool, and the dazzling trim that separates the two colors was an Oldsmobile exclusive that made these cars easy to identify from a hundred feet away. Paint and bodywork were finished in the 1990s, and even thought it has some time and use on it, this Olds looks great even close up. Of course, chrome is a big issue on any car of this period and you're in luck because all the brightwork is in good shape, from the massive grille up front to the delicate taillight surrounds with bullet-shaped lenses.

The 88 was Oldsmobile's bread-and-butter, but that didn't mean skimping on luxury. The handsome two-tone interior complements the paint job, and shows a restraint that was uncharacteristic of the era. The interior was restored in the '90s as well, and the used NOS fabric so it looks exactly right. Given that it has been properly maintained and driven only seldom, things like the carpets show only a little wear, the interior plastics are in great shape, and the gauges are still bright and fully functional, even with the late-model powerplant under the hood. There's another globe in the center of the steering wheel, and GM's symmetrical dashboard design works particularly well here. The original radio is in the center of the dash, and it works in conjunction with a cassette player stashed in the glove box to offer a bit more variety in your music choices. In back, there's a fully finished trunk with gray mouse fur mats, as well as a matching tire cover. There's also a correct jack assembly stashed alongside the spare tire.

While the 88 was a great performer, this car got a comprehensive upgrade thanks to a chassis swap from a mid-70s Chevy Impala. It's actually a very neat fit and the wheelbase is the same, so you won't even notice the change from outside. That updated chassis gives the Olds much more modern moves and the 350 cubic inch Chevy V8 is considerably more powerful than the original 324 cubic incher. It's disguised under an Oldsmobile-labeled air cleaner, and you'll note that power steering and power front disc brakes are part of the package. There's also a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and a GM 10-bolt rear end, all of which make this Olds incredibly easy to service and maintain. A mellow dual exhaust system sounds just about right under the '50s cruiser and there's a fresh gas tank hanging out back. Original Oldsmobile wheels and hubcaps were reinstalled, along with a set of 225/75/15 whitewall radials for just the right look.

This is a heck of a lot of car for the money, and if you're shopping for a '50s cruiser, this might be the biggest bargain we've ever offered. Call today!
