Classic Car Overview

With a great color combo, droptop rarity, and Rocket V8 power, this 1956 Oldsmobile Super 88 Convertible has a terrific appeal thats as clear as black and white, literally! The two-tone black and white paint conveys a dramatic elegance that you want from an Oldsmobile. And the way the trim line cuts through the door line, and provides a separation for these high contrast colors really gives this the look of an upper-class classic. More of this classic stylishness is seen on the brightwork, like the jet-inspired hood ornament, Olds globe logos, and the front chrome bumper that fits the contours of the car while encapsulating the grille. This one really has a great sense of original-style chic, right down to details, like the wheel covers, badging, and fender skirts. The white convertible top fits with the color theme, and with the flip of a switch, it powers down to reveal even more great black and white coordination on the interior. Two rows of leather seats give family and friends plenty of space to spread out. The 50s were all about big style and symmetry, and you see that everywhere from the dual-spoke steering wheel, to the dual oval design of the dash. The original style goes right down to the details, like the working parking brake indicator and AM radio thats still on display. The Olds OHV Rocket V8 is an important motor, because it really helped ignite a power frenzy in the 1950s. This 324 cubic-inch powerhouse looks like they spent plenty making it appear like a time capsule, and we know you love how the boldly painted valve covers announce the motor. And while the setup has the right pieces in place for classic looks, it has also been enhanced to be a better driver. Thats why you have upgrades like an MSD coil and Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. It fires up nicely, and the dual exhaust is both authoritative and dignified. Plus, you have great cruising features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes. The sale some complete with original owners manual and power top operation manual. Convertibles represent some of the most expensive cars when new, and so they are also some of the rarest classics today. There were only about 9,500 of these 56 Super 88 convertibles built over six decades ago, and so you can imagine how few are left today with this much distinction. Dont let this classic Olds droptop slip away, call today!
