Great car. I knew I wanted to buy it when I saw it for the first time. What's not to like? It has new paint, interior, white top and we installed new wide white radial tires. The '56 Olds has a beautiful dash. They do not make them like this anymore. The original front and rear bumpers had some minor blemishes, so Andrew pulled them off and had them re-chromed. We installed a trunk carpet set too. We got it serviced and safety checked. Noticed when driving it was pulling a little. Took it to Clarks's to have the front end gone through. One thing lead to another. They have a tranny guy so they pulled the transmission out to rebuild it. They found the end of the crankshaft had a problem so they pulled the engine to take the crank out and have it rebuilt. Did not rebuild the top end as it runs very well. So now the Oldsmobile is in top shape . This is one stunning automobile, one that you need to see for yourself! 1956 Olds Rocket 88 Convertible. Cond. # 2 ++++.
