This 1952 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight is a well-priced classic that
gives you some of the best styles around. Plus, there is a cool mix
of a preserved chrome cruiser with the right upgrades to make it
more enjoyable for modern times.
A car like this is about being a car you can have fun with. That
spirit starts with the paint. The cream and green is a two-tone
that feels right for the 1950s. But that roof has some added flair
with a nice metallic glow. The finish is complete but the kind of
driver-ready style that's ideal for care-free cruising. And a big
reason why the Eighty-Eight is so attractive is the brightwork. The
bumper and grille dominate the front end with a tasteful rounded
style. The side trim is pure art. You have a streak that goes from
the headlight through the front door, and the rear door has an
accent piece that's the jet-age style of a Rocket Olds. Plus, the
tail light treatment gives this a hint of a tailfin. Fender skirts,
whitewall tires, and the iconic Oldsmobile globe logo leading the
way are all part of the total style that really make this vintage
sedan a distance way to get around.
The interior continues the color theme. Green and cream is
intertwined on the door panels, headliner, and dash. But the place
it looks the best is on the seats. It's a thoughtful style with the
cream cloth finished with green piping. Just like the exterior, the
full package is focused on offering a driver-ready style. There's
enough interior room to take everyone on ice cream runs. There's
even an upgraded retro-style AM/FM digital tuner radio for better
driving music. And vintage lovers will appreciate details like the
bright dash trim, classic steering wheel, and passenger-side
With a car that has been so authentic so far, it's great to see a
correct-style 303 cubic-inch V8 under the hood. It's an honest
presentation that has some of the best classic details, including
the Oldsmobile Rocket valve covers and air grabber that would
become a hot rodder favorite over the years. You also have
worthwhile upgrades like a four-barrel carburetor, a 12-volt
electrical system, and an alternator. Plus, you have great driving
features, like the Hydramatic automatic transmission and upgraded
front disc brakes.
This is true classic distinction offered for a value price. Call
