Description of 1956 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight Holiday Hardtop


Uniquely rare and cool 1956 Oldsmobile 2-door hardtop, purchased in California from the original owner 25 years ago and brought East. The car was then tastefully restored and modernized. It was given a mild custom treatment and was nosed, decked, shaved and painted in a single stage block paint.

The Olds captures the essence of a mid-1950’s custom with white diamond tuft pattern seats, leather dashboard, and art-deco gauges and trim.

The body restoration was professionally done 25 years ago on a rust-free California “Black Plate” car. The California plates go with the car.
