Description:
Classic motoring with plenty of upscale touches, that\'s what this 1957 Oldsmobile Super 88 has to offer. So look over everything from the impressive brightwork to the tri-power V8 under the hood, and you soon realize this is a classic hardtop with true distinction.

This is the golden era of post-WWII cars, and this Olds shows it perfectly. The sheetmetal is quite straight, so you can see some of the best pieces from the era like the tailfins and the sexy dip in the doorline. Plus, Oldsmobile was also free to have a style all its own in details like the three-piece rear window. And of course, there\'s nothing that can beat the chrome on these. The shining front bumper integrates a grille wide enough to spell O-L-D-S-M-O-B-I-L-E in big block letters. The form-fitting rear bumper flows right into the tailfin design. And that beautiful side trim starts at the vent window and flows all the way down the car. There\'s all the right details, too, like the jet-inspired ornaments on each fender, Super 88 badging, factory wheel covers, and whitewall tires. It\'s all set against a glossy application of the \'50s-style Banff Blue.

Inside, there\'s more blue to give you the full appeal of a tropical sea. After all, the tones of blue with white accents looks like an ocean wave with a large crest. This is believed to be highly original, and the plastic protectors over the seats demonstrate this car\'s long-term care. There\'s plenty of room for family and friends, and quite frankly, everyone loves to go for a ride in a classic pillarless hardtop. The Olds factory steering wheel has plenty of ornamentation and a terrific classic grippy feeling. Beyond that, the dash has the kind of bright and intricate style that these Oldsmobiles were known for, so it\'s great to see it so complete.

You\'re going to love lifting the hood wherever you park this coupe. Oldsmobile\'s golden block draws immediate attention, and as people get closer, they\'ll see good care with crisp wires, hoses, and an overall tidy presentation. Of course, what will really have them talking are the three polished breathers on top of the motor. This is the unmistakable look of three Rochester dual barrel carbs, and Olds fans know 1957 was the first year for the J-2 option. This allows the 371 cubic-inch V8 to inhale deeper, which give a nice sound to the dual exhaust. This power package is also great for providing true cruising power. That\'s why you also have power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, and an overall solid feeling that comes from the right investments in suspension components.

This is the power and well-presented classic coupe with plenty of distinction. So you know it\'s time you stake your claim on this tri-power Olds. Call today!!!
