For Sale: 1956 Oldsmobile 98 in Collierville, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

Let's face it. Tri-Five Chevrolets are beautiful cars and highly desireable, but they're easily found at any car event. This 1956 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Holiday Coupe, however, is a different story! The Ninety-Eight was the high-luxury mark for Oldsmobile and it's quite evident in the style, content and overall presence of this beautiful automobile.

A combination of well maintained original and frame-on restoration, this Ninety-Eight is well sorted and ready to be enjoyed. Presented in a nice driver-quality base/clear finish suitable for both show and go, this rare beauty attracts considerable attention with its Citation Bronze Metallic and creamy Beige colors. Attention to a couple of minor blemishes in the beige would only improve the quality of this beauty. New genuine chrome wire wheels and whitewall tires add unexpected style. As a bonus, the rare and original Oldsmobile three-bar spinner wheel covers also come with the car!

Inside this beauty, you'll experience the mireade of fine details that made GM styling of this era so lavish. The overall dashboard is a work of art with its beautifully designed chrome instrument cluster, space-age steering wheel, and luxurious leather french-seamed dash pad. All remarkably well presented. The new hand-trimmed seat covers show and perform comfortably and blend extremely well with the original fabric retained on the door panels. Hand-laid square-weave carpets, power seat, power windows, Air Conditioning, power steering and brakes all add up to a luxurious drive.

One of the most unusual features found on this fine automobile is the extremely rare electric "Skidmaster Sander", an electrically operated system that drops sand from dual trunk-mounted reservoirs to the front of the rear tires, providing a little extra traction when needed. All electrically operated directly from the steering column!

This is your opportunity to own an unusually equipped, and rare automobile that will certainly draw attention away from some of the more common classics. To place this one in your garage, please call Art & Speed at 901-850-0507.
