Description for Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight 1953

Note the detail of this car-the wiring on firewall;-original seating and wool headliner/ doors-original matting in trunk repainted in factory original color. Son of Original owner literally took the car apart after it had been sitting for several years since the death of his father. All systems lines brakes and wiringwere cleaned serviced repainted and re chromed ( engine and Trans are painted just like they were from the factory- all chrome is excellent). Restoration was completed with the addition of 5 new high end radials which make it drive very smoothly. Nice mellow dual exhausts.Original seating is covered with bubble plastic(bet you haven't seen that lately). Comes with painted but not installed front windshield visorI have all of the restoration in a bound photo album with parts and labor records. Additionally I have a good sampling of dealer sales brochures and ads and testimonials from the son rebuilder. This car runs l beautifully. (Olds won most of the races in the early 50s) true and smooth at interstate speeds. Selling due to my age and losing some of my storage space. Fly in drive home. Will be happy to answer any questions. Wendell Cantrell 72 year old lawyer car enthusiast, Spartanburg SC 864-580-1597
