1959 OLDSMOBILE SUPER 88 SEDAN
This is a very lovely example of a super 88 sedan in a rare color combo!!
This car comes with the what looks to be the original interior, with newer carpet. The headliner also looks to be original, and there are no rips, tears or punctures. The dash is also in great shape with the exception of one minor crack on the far left side. All of the side glass is in fine shape with the original factory logo. The trunk material while showing some age is original and in extraordinary condition. Also included is a new spare tire, wheel and jack. The spare wheel is also nicely painted to match the other four.
The car has the 394 v8 motor and painted the correct color. The hood was fitted with new insulation, and the engine has been freshly detailed . The correct air cleaner sticker has been ordered, and will be with the car shortly.
The chrome is very nice with a good shine, and is better than presentable, but not pristine. The back bumper is in very nice condition. The front bumper has some pealing on the top piece and lower half has pealing and minor pitting on one corner piece.
All lights, turn signals, brakes, reverse, and brights work.
Radio also works, and that is unusual in a car of this age.
The undercarriage of this car is in an original, unmolested, solid condition. All floor plans are original and excellent. We could not find any rust repair on the undercarriage. The rockers are very solid and straight, and have what appear to be the original weep holes. Rear quarter panels are in beautiful condition. The body is very straight and lines all match up correctly.
The car is a dream to drive. NO hesitation at all. Motor sounds strong. All fluids changed. All hoses, belts, and plugs in good condition. The car has a newer battery. Just put over 100 miles last week and really feel that this car is ready for the open road.
This car overall is in excellent shape from paint to chrome to mechanics and really will be great addition to someone's collection.
I believe I have been very accurate on describing this car to the best of my knowledge; however, I always recommend coming to look at the car in person.
The car is located here in Indianapolis, Indiana. The car comes with a clean, clear Indiana title.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to call Brett at 303.880.6791 or Paul at 317.628.3888
We have dozens of more photos available upon request.
Please remember, this is a 54 year old car. I am representing it as accurately as I can based on my knowledge and have tried to give as much detailed information as possible.
This is truly a great example of an extra nice car. Please don’t hesitate to call and ask questions before you bid.
Thanks and good luck!!
If you have a need to relive the 1970s, then here is the vehicle for you. This groovy blast from the past is a 1976 GMC Motorhome currently for auction in Florida on eBay Motors, and it is one green machine - just not in the modern sense.
The seller claims that this beast has had just two owners and has covered a mere 61,308 miles in its decades on the road. It's reportedly never been restored or repainted and comes with all of the necessary books and manuals. A 7.5-liter (455-cubic-inch) Oldsmobile V8 with a three-speed Turbo-Hydramatic automatic transmission powering the front wheels propels this far-out RV, and the double set of rear wheels out back use a self-leveling air suspension to provide a cushy ride.
The purported low miles and good condition really make this GMC a stand out, though. The exterior combination of lime stripes and beige with just a touch of green is like nothing else on the road today. Plus, the polished bumpers and wheels make it all pop. Inside, it's even better with monochromatic green upholstery and shag carpet. It features everything you'd ever need on a long trip, including a bathroom, kitchenette and lots of seating. The only hint of modernization is an HD TV next to the stove, but its size is a perfect fit for the hole there.
General Motors today announced a truly massive recall covering some 8.4 million vehicles in North America. Most significantly, 8.2 million examples of the affected vehicles are being called back due to "unintended ignition key rotation," though GM spokesperson Alan Adler tells Autoblog that this issue is not like the infamous Chevy Cobalt ignition switch fiasco.
For the sake of perspective, translated to US population, this total recall figure would equal a car for each resident of New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Montana, Delaware, South Dakota, Alaska, North Dakota, the District of Columbia, Vermont and Wyoming. Combined. Here's how it all breaks down:
7,610,862 vehicles in North America being recalled for unintended ignition key rotation. 6,805,679 are in the United States.
The folks behind Generation Gap have lost their minds with this latest video. The goal here is to determine the ultimate family cruiser, but the choices are what you would least expect, with a heavily modded 1970 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser going up against a 2012 Ferrari FF.
You might anticipate an over-40-year-old Oldsmobile to pale in comparison to any modern Ferrari, but this wagon has a ton of secrets under its skin thanks to Lingenfelter. First, it packs a supercharged LS3 V8 with a claimed 650 horsepower and a six-speed manual gearbox. That big upgrade in power is further helped with air suspension and massive Wilwood disc brakes. The result is nothing short of deafening, with blaring yelps whenever the driver even nudges the accelerator.
The alternative sounds just as good, albeit in very different way. The Ferrari's 6.3-liter V12 pumps out 651 hp and 504 pound-feet with a part-time all-wheel drive system. While the FF lacks a lot of the hauling ability of the Olds, it makes up for the deficit in handling, luxury, and in many eyes, simply by having the famous prancing horse on the grille.
