Description for Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight 1959

NO RESERVE ON THIS VERY RESTORABLE 1959 OLDSMOBILE 88. Not sure if its a Super or Holiday. This is definitely a project or you can part it out. Either way, it has a clean and clear Florida Title. It looks like it spent a fair bit of time in Georgia before we bought it 20 years ago. It used to run, drive & look great, had all the parts and chrome, however after sitting and being bounced around place to place over the years, the V8 - two barrel carb engine is now locked up, its missing the front doors (these were just taken), missing the rear bumper, missing many chrome pieces and missing the radiator & fan. It sounds like a lot, but pretty much the rest is there and is restorable. I do not know if those are original miles (likely not), but that's what the dash.

Again, this is a project restoration car or buy for parts. Either way there are still a lot of classic car being sold here.


BID WITH CONFIDENCE, AS I HAVE A 100% FEEDBACK AS A LONG TIME MEMBER AND HAVE SOLD MANY HIGH DOLLAR ITEMS WITH ABSOLUTELYNO ISSUES.


A LITTLE HISTORY ON THIS YEAR AND MODEL BELOW....

All Oldsmobiles were completely restyled for 1959, with the 88 series given longer, lower and wider styling on a GM B-body chassis. The 88 shared its appearance with the top-modelOldsmobile 98. Styling highlights for the new models, promoted as the "Linear Look," included six-window styling on four-door pillared sedans, glassy semi-fastback rooflines on Holiday coupes and flat-blade rooflines with thin windshield and C-pillars on Holiday sedans which created a large open greenhouse effect. The four-door hardtops were called "Holiday Sport Sedans." While many 1959 model cars featured bigger and sharper fins, Olds flattened theirs horizontally and reduced chrome from 1958 for a much cleaner look. Wheelbases on 88 models increased by one inch to 123 inches (3,124mm). A simpler but bold new grille and revised rear design with even flatter, horizontal tail-fins and new taillights highlighted the 1960 makeover. Other changes included a revised instrument panel and a slimmer transmission tunnel for improved interior space.
