Vehicle Description

STK 3402 1952 Oldsmobile 88 Super Deluxe

The 'Super 88' was the top-of-the-line Oldsmobile in 1952. This Olds Super 88 2-door sedan was the recipient of a full restoration in 1990 and is a rare example of this classic. The solid exterior was restored in original 2-tone Green/Cream. The Canto Cream finish of the top is very good, but the Palm Green on the body has developed tiny 'spider webs' on some surfaces. If the Show Trophy is your goal, the Green finish will need to be addressed. That said, all of the chrome is in very good condition and accents include a stunning hood ornament, classic '50s chrome grill and 15" factory wheels w/trim rings/center caps. There is also a full windshield sun visor and manually operated driver spotlight. The restored cloth/vinyl interior shows very well. Upholstery, door cards and headliner are all in good condition. The stunning dash holds the original AM radio, but it needs TLC. There is also a full set of working factory gauges w/dash compass and the steering wheel is just plain beautiful.

The Olds is powered by a 303ci OHV 'Rocket 88' V8 that has been totally rebuilt and sounds strong. Factory output of the 'Rocket' with a 4-barrel carburetor was rated at 160hp in 1952. The engine has received a recent full service including carb rebuild, electric fuel pump, breakerless ignition system and plugs. Power is transferred by a 4-speed Hydra-Matic transmission to a stock rear differential and new u-joints have been installed in the driveshaft. The suspension is all factory design except for the addition of rear air shocks. The Olds rides on a set of Coker white-white bias ply tires. The hydraulic drum brake system was rebuilt (2020) including the master cylinder, wheel cylinders and brake lines. This Super 88 is ready for a new owner who will appreciate this beautiful, classic Oldsmobile. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
