Classic Car Overview

Oldsmobiles now-famous OHV Rocket V8 engine was in its the beginning when this 1956 Oldsmobile Super 88 Holiday hardtop emerged. So this sedan was delivering big torque with a healthy dose of luxury to match, creating a unique niche in the GM hierarchy. It upholds those traditions today with its strong-running nature and even an A/C interior. The two-tone is quite close to an era-correct Island Coral and Alcan White. It instantly conveys the elegance that you want from an Oldsmobile. It has a glossy finish that gets this one noticed, and the right hints of driver-ready style that lets you know it was made to cruise. And overall, 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 coral and cream. All the sheet metal appears sleek and correct, and so you clearly see flowing detail like 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 little things are nice with the famous Oldsmobile globe leading the way, color-matched steel wheels giving a hint of color behind the wheel covers, and notched tail lights in the rear to add more distinction to the rocket-like tailfins. Oh yes, Oldsmobile delivered style. The Holiday Hardtop sedan means that people have a clear view of the interior, so its quite nice to see the detailed presentation continue inside. Theres plenty of room for family and friends across the two wide bench seats. These look highly original, and they are complete, right down to the textured pattern and 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 seem to remind you that style was a priority in the 50s. Youll appreciate the details, like the smooth dash pad, AM radio still there for display, and working dome light. And because this is a car that youll want to take out on those long-light summer evenings, this one even has been upgraded in 2020 with ice-cold air conditioning. Oldsmobiles famous Rocket V8 lives under the hood. This 324 cubic-inch motor loves to show off its vintage style with the distinct green block, callouts on the valve covers, and the air grabber that looked so good that hot rodders would borrow them for years to come. More than just looking good, this also has been given the right investment like a new fuel pump and a rebuild of the four-barrel carburetor in 2020. It makes for a strong motor that keeps this a solid cruiser. Its a true vintage machine, and so it likes to keep you in touch with the road like a proper 1950s car does. But it also has the right driving features like the Hydramatic automatic transmission, a smooth ride, and a V8 nice tune from the dual exhaust. Complete with maintenance records, this is the kind of detailed classic where even the full-size spare in the trunk looks amazingly correct. Its vintage fun that few get to experience at this level. So dont miss out, call today!
