Description for Oldsmobile 88 1956
Here's a hardtop classic coupe that's been given so much custom work inside and out that they had to include A/C just to cool it down its so hot. It might sound too good to be true at this price, but just keep reading about this 1956 Oldsmobile 88 Holiday, to understand how much work went into this coupe.This is the golden era of post-WWII cars, and this custom Olds shows it perfectly. You can see some of lineage to the iconic shoebox Chevys in details like the fenders and the sexy dip in the doorline, but Oldsmobile was also free to have a style all its own. Great details like the globe hood emblem, and bullet-shaped taillights remain, and all the stainless trim pieces have been mirror polished. It even looks like both bumpers have taken a recent trip to the chrome shop. But that is not why you love this one. Instead, you want this Olds for its total custom sleekness. It starts with sheetmetal that has been massaged to show quality standards. Then a modern Copper Metallic paint was interlaced with a flirting high gloss black for an outstanding two-tone. Add in custom touches like the shaved door handles, lowered suspension, and large BOSS 18-inch wheels, and you've got a great classic that has been transformed into an outstanding custom.When you open the door, the copper and black are there on the seats, door panel, carpeting, and headliner to give the impression of a full custom build. You'll love those modern leather buckets up front because they are more comfortable than anything that came out of the '50s. And even the driver's seat is power adjustable. While this Olds has been updated, you still get that great vintage feeling the moment you sit behind the stylized factory steering wheel and gaze over the intricate dash design. We know you're going to want to go cruising everywhere while showing off the cool pillarless Holiday bodystyle. That's why this has been updated with ice-cold air conditioning. After all, you should be able to stay cool while looking cool.The full two-tone paint effect is even under the hood. The custom copper pieces on the engine and fender walls look so good against the black components, it will make you proud to stop at every car show....And quite frankly, this Olds was built to do just that. The 324 cubic-inch Rocket V8 was rebuilt around 30 miles ago. That means it fires up easily and runs as smooth as when this coupe was new. It's a spirited performer on the road thanks to a broad torque curve and the Hydramatic transmission. Add in power steering, power brakes, and modern performance tires, and you've got a great classic that looks like a custom and handles like a true cruiser.Complete with title documentation, you're looking at an iconic Olds with cool upgrades that always grab attention. So when a full custom build is within reach of so many people, you know you have to hurry to grab this one. Call now!!
