1957 Oldsmobile Super 88 for Sale in Bronxville, New York 10708
This 1957 Oldsmobile Super 88 4-door sedan resonates iconic '50s styling. Meticulously restored and garage maintained, the focus was on recreating the look, feel, style, and drivability available to buyers in 1957. Total investment in this Super 88 is over $70k. The old 371 cu in, 277 hp engine has been replaced with a newly rebuilt 1962 Starfire 394 cu in, 345 hp, 440 ft. lbs. torque engine, incorporating the many technical upgrades that led to this as a permanent replacement for the 371 beginning in 1959. New Holley four-barrel carburetor ensures quick engine turnover and efficient operation. Transmission is a completely rebuilt Controlled Coupling Hydramatic Jetaway. All springs, including the rear leaf springs, and shocks have been replaced so the car rides smoothly and handles confidently.
The car has been beautifully painted Blue Sapphire Mist Acrylic Lacquer (Color Code 93 in 1957). Front and rear bumpers rechromed. The interior is completely redone in leather and cloth with currently manufactured period materials to recreate the look and feel of the car when it was first driven off the lot in '57. The radio has been replaced with a luxurious sounding 4-way stereo system (both the amplifier and subwoofer are hidden in the trunk) that has Satellite and iPhone inputs. Installed air conditioning is ice cold. Sound deadening materials line the floor to create a quieter ride. You can probablyfind a '57 Olds for less than the asking price here, but to get it into the condition of this car, your overall investment would be considerably higher.
