1957 Oldsmobile Super 88

Nothing says America like a big 1950s luxury car.

This 1957 Olds Super 88 sedan is an excellent driver. The body is extremely straight, the engine sounds excellent and it has a tight feel overall.

The body has excellent panel gaps and the doors, hood and trunk lid all close beautifully. The body is free of any major dents or imperfections with the exception of one shallow dimple on top of the right rear fender, and signs of some previous repair work on the left rear fender lip area. Overall the paint is quite presentable for a driver, but it is an older paint job and would benefit greatly from some professional detailing.

The chrome and stainless trim are all in excellent condition.

The engine starts quickly, sounds great and does not have any noticeable bad traits for an engine its age. For 1957 Oldsmobile had upped the displacement and horsepower on their famous Rocket 88 engines . The Olds was more powerful than most of the Corvettes in her day!

The engine compartment is very neat, clean and unrestored original. The wiring harness in the engine compartment is in excellent original unmolested condition.

Out on the road she drives well for a 1950s sedan. The body is tight, the suspension is good, the transmission shifts well and the brakes are competent for 1950s drum brakes. There is some loose motion in the steering and not all of the electrical functions are working at this time. The wiring harness appears to be in excellent condition so it is probably a matter of going item-by-item cleaning contacts and checking grounds.

Underneath the car is extremely clean, solid and unmolested original. It has a new exhaust system.

Like the rest of the car the interior is very nice and appears to be a good mixture of excellent original and original style replacement. The headliner is original and has some minor staining as does the top of the rear seat. The rest of the seat fabric is in exceptionally good condition as are the door panels.

In summary she is a good, honest car but definitely not perfect. Show her a little love and enjoy her the way she is. You can't swing a dead cat without hitting a 57 Chevy but when was the last time you saw a 57 Oldsmobile?
