1955 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight 2 Door Hardtop Additional Info:

1955 Oldsmobile 88

I will be listing a few cars here in the next week or two for my family. We are reducing are number of cars, so please see my other listings as well. I am not a dealer.

This is a very nice that we have been proud to own and show. We have made a difficult decision to sell it and hope to see it go to a good home. It should win a trophy at most of the informal events. It has been restored a few years back. Runs, drives, and looks great! It is ready for the next owner to enjoy :-)

The 324 Rocket V8 makes very good power. No unusual lifter noises, taps, or issues. Runs really well! The Hydra-Matic transmission shifts great also. It goes through all four gears at the right time (if you're familiar with these than you know what I mean!). This is a good shifting Hydra-Matic. The car steers and stops effortlessly with the factory power steering and brakes. It is very reliable and easy to drive!

Exterior paint is very nice. NO RUST ISSUES. Great body and under-carriage! The chrome and stainless is also quite nice. There is really nothing about this car that looks 60 years old at all! The interior, dash, steering wheel and upholstery are all very original/correct and nice. Rear seat still has plastic on it (seats look great under it). All of the gauges work. Just a beautiful car inside and out. If you want a very good Olds that you can drive and enjoy, definitely give this car some consideration. This is a VERY nice car and priced WELL BELOW book value. Please compare this price to the others in the same condition!! While it is not a $100,000+ "concourse" car for point judging, it is a super nice driver that you'd be proud to drive and own for all the local fun car shows.

Please see the photos and ask what questions you have.

I reserve the right to end the listing early at any time for the right offer. The car could be for sale locally as well.

What could this car be valued at? If you look up NADA, you find that a car like this in excellent condition showing minimal wear holds a value of $55,600.00. Average condition is $30,500 and this car is nicer than that! These cars are climbing in value very quickly. You might want to grab this one before someone else beats you to it.

I welcome personal inspections from a potential buyer. Shown by appointment.

Drive home or I can help ship thiscar to your door at a reduced rate via enclosed transport. If you are a long distance or overseas, I will try to work with you on the shipping. Please contact me for details.
