1960 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight SUPER 88 CONVERTIBLE
From ourprivate collection here in Mobile, labama is this 1960 OLDSMOBILE SUPER 88 CONVERTIBLE that is in mostly unmolested condition. My family were Oldsmobile dealers for over 35 years and I have never seen aSuper 88 Convertible in this kind oforiginal condition this nice in my life.
It has an "8" in the Vin number and "3567" on the original cowl tag. This one is as real as it gets! Original Vin tag is in the door opening and is original to the car.
From what I know about this car it was purchased from the original owner estate. Theperson I bought it from had the car stripped downtobare metal, epainted it the originalcolor of Garnet Mist Metallic, nstalled a new White Convertible Top, nd had new matching andcorrect Red/White seat covers installed.He put a new larger aluminum radiator and a electricfan forsafetywhile driving this car.All chrome and stainless molding are the original and very nice. All the glass is original to the car as I understand. Car is very straight and no rust at all. Please look at the original factory "Red Oxide" floor pans!!! These are the original floor pans and cardboard surround in the trunk is still in place! I have a set of the original keys with the key numbers not punched out.
Optionsare the original 394/315 HP Rocket 4 BBL V8 engine, riginal 3 speed automatic transmission, riginal rear end housing! Power Steering, ower Brakes, ower Convertible Top, onderbar AM radio, eluxe Hub Caps are in place. It has a CD Player installed but it is hidden in the glove box and instrument gauges installed under the dash just to keep more in touch with the engine functions while driving and enjoying this wonderful Oldsmobile. Car is to be actual miles but they are exempt because it is over 10 years old. I do not have a photo of the car with the top down, t works perfect. Matching red top boot is with the car also. Not sure what you call it but most of the factory original felt or heavy cloth material that is in between the rear springs that keep them from squeakingis still there!
I appreciate any Oldsmobile collector to please come look at this car, t is amazing! These do not come to market very often.From what information I can find they only made 5830 of these cars, ots more rare than even a Olds 98 Convertible. In perspective they made 79,903 Chevrolet Impala Convertibles in 1960. These Super 88 Convertibles are very very rare!
