For Sale: 1951 Oldsmobile Rocket 88 in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars Milwaukee is proud to present this 1951 Oldsmobile Rocket 88. By 1951 the 88 was the entry level model in the Oldsmobile line up. This was the first year all Oldsmobile's came exclusively with the Rocket V-8. The rocket engine was an all-new design that pumped out 135hp. Quite an accomplishment when you consider the ever-popular Ford Flathead V-8 was putting out 35 less horsepower. The 1951-52 Rocket 88 was an instant hit with its sleek design. It didn't hurt that the 88 Rocket was also crowned "King of Nascar". Some even consider the Rocket 88 the predecessor to the muscle car era. This 1951 Oldsmobile Rocket 88 is painted in Tuxedo black with and abundance of chrome and stainless body trim. Gold emblems of the world on both the front and rear, factory wheel covers, and that ever famous "Rocket" hood ornament are the true stand outs on the exterior of this beautiful car. The interior is elegantly appointed in a tan cloth interior with full carpeting. The ornate dash comes with a full gauge package and an AM radio. The 303 Rocket V-8 is attached to a Hydramatic transmission.
