See the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5OXFk60KXKg INTRO/HISTORY: The coolest cars of the day got songs written about them and Oldsmobile s Rocket 88 is no exception. Recorded in Memphis by Ike Turner and his Kings of Rhythm in1951, "Rocket 88" has been widely accepted as the first Rock & Roll record and went to #1 on the Billboard Music Charts. When the Oldsmobile Rocket 88 came out in 1949 it was the fastest car on the road. Cars and girls have always been famous themes in Rock n Roll. Clean and clear title. EXT: - Two tone White/ Red - Jet-Age aircraft hood ornament - Gorgeous planet earth badge - Continental Kit - New wide white walls - Factory chrome full wheel covers INT: - Two tone White/ Red vinyl - All new interior - Gauges appear as new - Generous amount of chrome accents - Planet Earth emblem on horn button - Spacious and luxurious ENGINE: - 324 cubic inch Rocket V8 motor - All stock and factory correct - Automatic transmission - Rocket script lettering on valve covers - Chrome tipped dual exhaust - Chrome spotlight on driver s side CONDITION: - Chrome is described as perfect - Bumper and grill are straight - Straight down the sides, paint has a deep finish - Classic 50 s styling from every angle - Undercarriage is clean, very little surface rust - Safety checked and turn-key ready. CLOSING: First generation Rocket 88 s from 49- 54 made a name for themselves as the fastest cars on the road and were successful stock car (NASCAR) racers. The second generation from 54- 56 became longer and lower with wraparound windshields and even more horsepower going from 170 hp 303 V8 s to 185 hp 324 V8 s. Chrome trim and 2-tone paint made them sharp-looking. So, make your date with this Rocket 88, just make sure you re not too late.
