1950 Oldsmobile 88
If you have clicked on this ad then you know when you have seen something special. There is something about this car that is just right. It has a very unique look with great bodylines and all the mechanics to back it up. This Super 88 Oldsmobile is coated in a dark Blue metallic paint that is really something to see when you get it in the sun. It has been shaved of all the old trim with only a few accent pieces being left. Chrome is great but there is something special about looking down the side of a car and seeing perfectly smooth bodylines. Since it is now free of door handles a remote door popper is in place to gain access to the inside. The trunk is also shaved so it is also electrically opened from a switch. It was built 6 years ago with an incredible attention to the little details and within the past 6 months the car has been entirely gone through a second time with some improvements and modifications! The custom louvers on the hood were nicely done and look great. The rear taillights are mounted in the original style chrome trim and look awesome. You may recognize them from some other wild customs you have seen because they are just that cool and unique. The large front and rear bumpers are nicely chromed out and are in great condition. The car has a great stance and wears centerline custom wheels on all four corners.
If you expected to see your same old boring 350 under the hood guess again because this car was just fitted with a 383 stroker motor. Every inch of the motor utilizes only the best components and was built up to produce over 425hp. If it isn't enough having virtually every piece chromed, the firewall has a custom polished panel and the nose piece over the radiator is fully chromed. It is truly one of a kind. The 4 speed overdrive transmission shifts nice and smooth and is what you want in a classic like this. Pro touring, pro street, this car is everything you could want. It has been tubbed in back and has no problem hooking up. The narrowed 9" Ford rear end is one of the strongest out there and has been nicely painted. The car has power steering, power disc brakes, and everything else you could want. The Air Ride Suspension in rear allow you to adjust the ride with just a push of the button. All of the brakes on the car were just rebuilt and a fully new exhaust installed.
The interior of the car is done in a beige leather and is very comfortable. Two bucket seats sit next to the added center console and are very comfortable. The dash is done in an original style but it has been upgraded with some new features. The Dakota Digital gauges are mounted in an original style bezel that is nicely polished. An aftermarket tachometer was also added. It has all of the original chrome knobs and switches which work just as they should. Where many people would put a billet wheel you will actually find a more expensive and much cooler looking vintage wood wheel. It sits perfectly on top of the chrome tilt column and makes for an unique look. The vintage AC blows nice and cold through an underdash unit that very is cleanly mounted. Other nice features worth mentioning include a custom stereo and power windows.
This car is very unique and not a model you see everyday. It is reliable and was built to be a powerful yet comfortable driver.
