1955 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight
What a steal for this awesome ride!! Purchased from the state of Nevada and brought to Kansas where it was given a total restoration - completed in 2013. Nothing was overlooked and more than $50,000 was spent to get it looking and driving like new. There are approximately 2,000 miles on the rebuilt original 324 Rocket V-8 engine. It has a 4-barrel carburetor, the original 4-speed Hydra-Matic transmission, power steering, and power brakes. A larger, more efficient, custom radiator was added to accommodate the air conditioning that was also added. The custom paint of Caspian Cream and Polar White are original 1955 Oldsmobile colors and the custom interior of Polar White and Gray accents the paint nicely. This car is an award winner! It has received many awards ranging from Best in Class, Best Interior and Best Engine all the way to Best in Show. It has been featured on the Street Rodding American Style television show and in an article on Hotrodhotline.com.

Whether you're just cruising through town, down an old two-lane road, or "floating" down the interstate, this car is fun to drive! It's an attention getter and is acknowledged wherever it goes with thumbs up, big smiles, waves and tons of awesome stories about cars just like it from the past. No... It's not your dad's Oldsmobile - it's better!! Message here or call (785) 307-0655 directly with questions.
