1953 Oldsmobile Super Eighty-Eight Holiday Coupe

Widely considered to be the first muscle car, the first generation Oldsmobile 88 is a legendary car. When it came out in 1949, it introduced one of the first postwar overhead valve V-8 designs with the famous “Rocket” V-8. That large and powerful V-8, combined with a relatively light body, was a formula that made the Olds 88 one of the fastest automobiles in America at the dawn of the 1950s – and it was the car to beat in NASCAR racing, winning 10 out of 19 races in the 1950 season. The same year, an Olds 88 won the grueling 2000-mile-plus Carrera Panamericana Road Race in Mexico. An 88 convertible served as the pace car for the Indy 500 in 1949, and the Ike Turner/Jackie Brenston hit “Rocket 88” is one of the very earliest American rock and roll songs. Only 36,881 2-door Holiday Coupes were produced in 1953
