Harry's Thoughts

THE ESSENTIALS

SOLD to New Mexico!!! This is a beautiful older restoration of a 1957 Oldsmobile Super 88 hardtop coupe with its original J-2 tri-power carburetors and factory air conditioning. Said to be delivered new to Glendale, AZ, it has been a California and Arizona car and is a very solid and rust free example. The paint and chrome are in very nice condition and the car is ready to enjoy. Having been restored about 20 years ago, the condition of the car today is still stunning. We consider this to be in overall No. 2 condition on the Hagerty scale (a nice older restoration), and we’ve priced it accordingly

The paint is two toned in Victorian White and Banff Blue, with stunning stainless steel and chrome accents throughout. The paint is in very nice condition as well as the chrome and stainless. The only piece of chrome that could be benefited from re-plating is the passenger side tail light, which appears to have been excessively buffed out. Otherwise the Olds has consistent patina throughout.

The interior appears to be restored in all the proper materials and is in very nice condition today. The combination of the blue fabrics and the blue and white leather is gorgeous. It’s obvious that this was a car built for bankers and architects. The steering wheel shows more patina and appears never to have been restored. The radio works well. The clock is not operational.

The 371 CI engine with tri-power carbs generates 300 hp. The engine compartment is very well detailed and looks great with the multitude of copper lines running for the air conditioning. The Olds has wide white wall radials for improved safety, performance and comfort.

And being an Arizona car that is loaded with original factory options, this is the one to add to your collection. We don’t know how many Super 88 hardtop coupes were made with the J-2 motor and factory air, but it has to be very limited.

For more information and details call or text Harry Clark at +1.602.245.7200 or email us at harry@classicpromenade.com. The Olds is available for inspection at our Phoenix, Arizona showroom.

Interesting Fact: The Oldsmobile Super 88 is a full-size car that was produced from 1949 to 1999 by Oldsmobile. From 1949 to 1951, the Oldsmobile 88 was one of the best performing automobiles around due to its small size and its light weight V8 engine.   The base 88 is arguably one of the first muscle cars to ever be produced. A more powerful variant, the Super 88, was released in 1951 that features a more luxurious interior and a new B-body frame. A new four-barrel carburetor in 1952 allowed the Super 88 to produce 160 horsepower.    With the second generation of the 88 series, a hardtop four-door version was released, and air conditioning officially became an option. By 1956, the horsepower for the Super 88 had increased to 240 and the vehicle was still top of the line for Oldsmobile. Advancement continued over the years and the Super 88 continued as one of the highest-performing vehicles of all time. Due to this, car enthusiasts still seek out the Super 88 to add to their collections!
