1957 Oldsmobile Super 88Hardtop Coupe, J-2 Tri-Power, Factory Air Cond, Restored, AZ Car!
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.
