Gateway Classic Cars of San Antonio/Austin is proud to present this incredibly done 1956 Oldsmobile 88. The Oldsmobile 88 was produced from 1949-1999 with 88 series being the image leader for Oldsmobile. The 88 carried a larger high performance V8 and was considered by some to be the first muscle car. This example in a vibrant shade of red carries all the iconic 1950's styling cues such as the thick wide white wall tires and lots of heavy shiny chrome in the front and in rear with the jet age styled taillights and the signature 88 with the jet plane integrated into the design. This 1956 Olds 88 has been updated under the hood with a newer Oldsmobile 350CID V-8 with an Edelbrock carburetor mated to a smooth shifting TH400 3-speed automatic transmission and the front suspension was redone, including all new bushings, so the ride is tight. The cabin has been completely reupholstered with tan vinyl with red piping on the seats, door panels and headliner. Matching red lap belts have been added to the front and rear bench, and additional equipment includes an ice-cold air conditioner, heater, AM/FM radio with new Pioneer speakers, a tow hitch and a locking glovebox. The aftermarket Grant steering wheel sits ahead of a body-color dashboard housing a 120-mph speedometer and gauges for battery voltage, coolant temperature, fuel level, and oil pressure sit under the dash. From the “Jet Era” of automotive styling, the Oldsmobile 88 has the stylings that made Oldsmobile’s an instant classic that have really become highly sought after in recent years and this one will be no exception. This is one of the nicer mid ‘50s Oldsmobiles we’ve seen in recent memory!
