The iconic hardtop profile and a great two-tone look inside and out instantly attract you to this 1955 Oldsmobile 98. But it also doesn't take much to recognize that this has a lot more going for it than pure classic car appeal. There's a smoother style on the outside, a loaded A/C interior, an overdrive transmission, and proper small block V8 power that all make this vintage Olds a terrific cruiser in modern times, too.
<br><br> The range-topping Oldsmobile 98 was built on a longer wheelbase, and so it stretches out some of the most iconic elements around. It starts with the two-tone where the white in the front has a long streak into the turquoise rear section. And the bright white also shows off the desirable Holiday hardtop. And because the paint has a good gloss, it's great to see it bordered by so much shining brightwork. And speaking of the brightwork, this design really used it to the fullest. This has the usual wraparound bumpers that love to hug the form, but these Oldsmobiles also had intricate details. You see it everywhere from the rocket-like trim on the tailfins, to the cool way the Olds letters almost look like the Hollywood sign on top of the grille. And while these are terrific classic details, this one also hints at being something more. You have a modern look with halo headlights, custom 15-inch chrome wheels, wide dual exhaust tips, and the emblems shaved on the hood & trunk.
<br><br> The Holiday Hardtop coupe style means that people have a clear view of the interior, so it's quite nice to see that the turquoise and white wow factor continues on the inside. There's plenty of room for family and friends, and the updated seating means a plush comfy feeling. And you even have the best features to keep them all happy, like a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner stereo and a cup holder center console. But the driver is always going to be the priority in this Olds. The steering wheel has been upgraded to a wood and chrome sports unit. It's mounted on a tilt column so you get a clear view to the full gauge package and upgraded tach. This coupe has the desirable power windows feature. So you never have to leave the driver's seat to show off the pillarless hardtop profile. And the air conditioning is blowing nice and cold, so feel free to enjoy this well into the summertime.
<br><br> Under the hood is a tidy upgrade that you'll love showing off. The smooth inner walls funnel your attention to the 350 cubic-inch V8 heart. It's built correctly with upgrades like an Edelbrock AVS2 four-barrel carburetor w/electric choke, an Edelbrock Performer RPM intake, bright fabricated valve covers, and a mild cam for added performance and a sweet tune out of the dual exhaust. You've also got nice supporting components, like an Accel distributor, steel braided coolant lines, and an aluminum radiator with electric fan. It's a powerhouse that loves to fire-up readily and hit the road. In fact, they recently spent $2k within the last few years upgrading this to a four-speed automatic transmission w/highway-friendly overdrive. There's also power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a modern tread behind those classic whitewalls. So you know this was a car that was made to be an easy cruiser.
<br><br> The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, build receipts, service manuals, and even a dyno sheet. There's a lot of classic and modern appeal in this Olds, and it's all offered for an affordable price. Call today!!!
