For 1956, Oldsmobiles styling formula continued to follow the basic principles laid down in the last major redesign of 1954, including fashionable wraparound windshield and rear-window treatments. The rapidly developing Rocket V-8 engine now displaced 324 cubic inches and delivered 240 horsepower for the Super 88 and 98 models, with GMs excellent Hydra-Matic automatic transmission standard. Features and amenities were many, including a padded dash, electric clock, power steering, windshield washers and Deluxe steering wheel, plus courtesy and back-up lights. Oldsmobiles trendsetting Holiday Hardtops, in both Coupe and Sedan form on the Super 88 and 98 lines, brought upscale trim and smart two-tone finishes befitting their status as Oldsmobiles best-sellers for 1956. Believed to remain in highly original condition, this 98 Holiday Hardtop Coupe is a very attractive example of the top Oldsmobile models offered for 1956. The odometer indicates less than 13,000 miles and a service sticker issued by a United Delco shop at 11,956 miles remains affixed to the drivers side door jamb. The engine and engine compartment both appear correct and consistent with proper maintenance and care, as does the inviting and well equipped interior. Features and amenities include the space-age Autronic Eye automatic headlight dimmer, plus a power seat, power windows and power steering, dual side view mirrors and fender skirts. Riding on proper red-painted steel wheels mounting factory Spinner wheel covers and wide whitewall tires, this highly collectible and enjoyable 1956 Oldsmobile 98 Holiday Hardtop Coupe is a high-quality example with so many interesting features and details including the original tires, which are included with the sale of the vehicle.
