Bring home this striking Olds with classic style.

1950s Oldsmobiles are some of the most desirable classic cars on the vintage collectors market because of their advanced performance and beautiful style. These cars follow very similar body styling cues to the famous Tri-Five Chevys we all know and love while at the same time offering far more luxury and comfort features. Who can forget the beautiful swooping lines, whitewall tires, and big V8 engines that these steel-bodied masterpieces were known for? Speed, luxury, and comfort were critical focal points for the creators of these cars, but we know you're not here just to read about the great car. If you happen to be one of the incredible enthusiasts who are willing to take on a piece of automotive history of your own, then this is going to be the perfect car for you.

Under the hood of this 1953 Oldsmobile 88 is a built 350 cubic inch V8 engine, backed by an upgraded Turbo 350 automatic transmission. It’s covered in factory 1956 Lincoln Wisteria paint, and has an upgraded GM front clip assembly. It gets stopping power from 4 wheel power disc brakes and has power steering. It has a custom rolled and pleated white leather interior with Dakota gauges on the inside. It has the factory chrome and rolls on chrome wire wheels with radial white wall tires.
