Classic Car Overview

Olds has always been a trendsetter. The OHV Rocket V8 engine was in this the beginning when this 1956 Oldsmobile Super 88 Holiday hardtop emerged. It launched a performance revolution that were still talking about today. So this hardtop sedan was delivering big torque with a healthy dose of luxury to match, creating a unique niche in the GM hierarchy. The two-tone blue and white is close to an era-correct color combo, and it instantly conveys the elegance that you want from an Oldsmobile. Its not perfect paintwork, but considering this is an intricate two-tone layout, we are happy to see someone took the time to get it right. That means a complete trim package that provides a clear dividing line for the blue and white. All the sheetmetal appears correct, including that famous kick-up in the rear fender that helps create the tailfin. All the brightwork is complete, including the big chrome bumpers that fit so well into the design. Even the details are nice with the famous Oldsmobile globe leading the way and notched taillights in the rear. And its all finished off with whitewall tires and factory wheel covers that alternates colors to showcase the cars full two-tone and chrome style. The Holiday Hardtop sedan style means that people have a clear view of the interior, so its quite nice to see that the blue and white wow factor continues on the inside. Theres plenty of room for family and friends, and the white seats with blue cloth inserts are sure to keep them all comfortable. These look highly original, and they are complete, right down to the button-top presentation in the center. The Olds globe steering wheel is thin and has that kind of instant sense of grip that we seemed to have lost over the years. As you gaze over all thats in front of you, the bright elements on the wheel, speedometer, and full dash just seems to remind you that style was a priority in the 50s. Oldsmobiles famous Rocket V8 lives under the hood. It has a terrifically honest presentation with a hint of added flair on the air topper. It earns this with the upgraded Holley four-barrel carburetor beneath it. An electric choke and a 12-volt system means the 324 cubic-inch V8 fires up nicely. The motor has a broad torque curve that is well-matched with the Hydramatic automatic transmission. Plus, the power steering and power brakes deliver on the easy cruising attitude that this Holiday hardtop conveys. Compete with owners manual, this is the kind of detailed classic where even the full-size spare in the trunk looks amazingly correct. And at an affordable price like this, you know its going to leave us quickly. So dont miss out, call today!
