Classic Car Overview

An amazing and rare collector car with the J2 Rocket option (Tri Power). This elegant and timeless classic dominates the road with unprecedented styling and power. I think this is one of the best-looking cars of the 50s, its rolling art. Owned over 10 years by the owner of Abernathy Restorations. EXTERIOR: The body lines are simply striking and speak for themselves. The 1957 was an all new look with rakish lower roofline, low cut doors give it a custom look and a unique 3 piece rear window. This one has a very clean body that is straight, and the panels line up flush and square. I remember the first time I saw this car, the all white really impressed me. It has a smooth glossy finish too. The abundance of chrome trim is impressive and in very nice condition. To make it even more stunning it is rolling on a set of chrome wire wheels wrapped in radial wide whitewalls. Absolutely stunning overall. INTERIOR: The matching white upholstery was hand stitched. The seats and side panels were all handmade. It has a sharp looking dash area full of chrome, the gauge cluster is a work of art in itself. It has optional padded dash; passenger corner is pulled up. We did pull the gauges and sent the speedometer and fuel gauge out to be restored. ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Its really special under the hood. This one has the J2 performance engine. Its a 371 with 3 two barrel carbs on top making 300 hp and 414 lbs of torque! Thats impressive for 1957. It also features power steering. The engine compartment was taken apart, restored and detailed. The manifolds were ceramic coated, carbs were restored, valve covers were rechromed. All the components look proper. Everything is painted very neatly. Upgraded with modern electric wipers. Looking in this engine compartment makes me very happy. TRUNK COMPARTMENT: This big trunk is lined in carpet. It is complete with a jack and spare. It has an optional trunk light too. UNDERSIDE: The underside presents very nicely overall. It looks like it has original rock solid floors and inner rockers. Maintained as needed, we did extensive work on the power brake system. New custom dual exhaust with welded joints and Hushpower mufflers. Looking up at the motor and trans it is clean. Oldsmobile called their 4-speed automatic the Jetaway. The trans has been serviced. Its been cleaned and freshened up with some black paint. SERVICE: We inspected the car and spent $3,714 on service. We rebuilt the rear wheel cylinders, some hard lines were replaced, the master cylinder and power booster were rebuilt then the system was bled. The gauge cluster was pulled: speedometer and fuel gauge were sent out for restoration. The fuel sending unit, alternator and turn signal switch were replaced. It has a fresh oil change. This beauty is ready to cruise. The overall styling and visual appeal of this impressive classic is unmatched. The NASCAR grand national championship was one in a J2 57 Olds in 1957! I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the cars condition in detail. These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car, make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded, and you will be given a 1 year membership. 815 385 3644 9-5 central Sales@volocars.com Answered ASAP J-2 Rocket Tri Power Power Steering Power Brakes Wire wheels Dual Chrome Mirrors Deluxe AM Radio Padded Dashboard Sales brochure
