Vintage Motorcars is proud to present this 1956 Oldsmobile Holiday 98 Hardtop Coupe.

This 1956 Oldsmobile Holiday 98 Hardtop Coupe is a very rare find. It is a 3-owner survivor that originated from a St. Paul, Minnesota dealership and resided all of its life in Los Angeles, California until the last two years in a Memphis, Tennessee collection. It is showing just 101,633 original miles (@1,700+ miles/year) and includes the original owner’s manual, a shop manual, and miscellaneous documents. The Olds Holiday (aka “Snoopy”)has been mechanically maintained and in a climate-controlled garage. The 1stowner clocked the majority of mileage from 1956 to 1999. The 2ndonly clocked a thousand miles from 2000 to 2014, and the 3rdowner clocked 633 miles since then.

This classic Olds is shown in a very nice older two-step base/clear coat in factory GM “Alcan White” and “Charcoal Metallic Poly” two-tone. The paint shows very well with only minor wear since re-sprayed. The door gaps are all very straight and true, and all the body panels are rust free.

The original Oldsmobile “Rocket” 324ci V-8 engine with 4bblRochester “Quadrajet” carburetor has been rebuilt, and runs just exactly like it should. The original Oldsmobile “Jet-Away” Hydra-Matic transmission was also rebuilt and shifts perfectly in and out of each gear.

The Olds came loaded with factory options:

  • High compression/9.25-1 “Rocket” Engine
  • Factory Dual Exhausts with Bumper Extensions
  • Power Steering
  • Power Drum Brakes
  • Excellent Starfire Spinner Hubcaps
  • Dual Chrome Oldsmobile Side Mirrors
  • Custom Delco Air Horn
  • Deluxe Wonderbar AM 2-Way Hi-Fidelity Radio with foot pedal
  • Power Antenna
  • Power Windows
  • 6-Way Power Seat
  • 2-Speed Vent/Heater Blower
  • Red Leather and Black Brocade Cloth seats
  • Padded Dash
  • Daytona-style carpeting
  • Courtesy Lights package
  • Vanity Mirror
  • Trico Vacuum Window Washer
  • Hand-Operated Back-Up Pump

This car also came with the following additional Dealer Installed Accessories:

  • Oldsmobile Chromed Front Bumper Guard
  • Mesh Vinyl and Spring-Attachable Bumper Guard
  • Oldsmobile Black Rubber Floor Mats
  • Oldsmobile Chrome Dealership License Plate Frame with ’56 Minnesota License Plate.

This Holiday 98 has all surviving original factory equipment and materials aside from the newer paint, ignition parts, and a few clamps under the hood. The key reminder and safety buzzer still works. Rubber gaskets are excellent. Trunk features original White-Wall Spare Tire with Jack Kit.

All fluids are fresh and it has been tuned-up mechanically. It is the nicest riding original high-end Oldsmobile I have ever experienced. The overall condition of the car is excellent, and it will truly make the new owner proud to show it off. Everything is clean and well-maintained without molestation. The original parts show appropriate patina for a 61 year-old survivor. All glass is clear/excellent condition and there is no rust in the body and chassis (still has the factory undercoating). The vacuum wipers work a bit slow, and the heater valve has been bypassed.

This classy Holiday 98 really only needs a new home-Or take it to concours level and win first place every time!
