1955 Oldsmobile 88 Hard Top Details
This 55 Olds 88 is a magnificent car. A true California car, built right here in Southgate Ca, the car was well maintained by the previous owner. It really is a nice car and is pretty original, I’m checking on the interior to see if they are original, but everything else is safe to safe original, original dash, original gauges that work, and original Deluxe radio that works, it has its California black plates and a clean title. The car is a sight to see.
The car is very solid, it has power drum brakes, with a 324 V8 engine and its original Hydra-Matic, shifts on the steering column. There are not very many or any custom modifications done to this car. Strictly original.
The engine has been well maintained. It’s a turn-key driver, which is capable of California highway driving or cruising down the boulevard. The car has drum brakes all around, it has a 324 V8 motor, and its original Hydra-Matic that works great. You could ask you an easier car to drive.
This car is as dependable as you can have with these classic cars, the engine runs strong, and starts up with ease; this car can cruise at high speeds, and putt around in traffic with no temperature issues.
