Olds Super 88 Convertible from 1955

The mid-fifties were an amazing time for General Motors. Each of their brands had a distinctive identity and business was booming. While almost everyone recognizes Chevrolet’s Tri-Five collection, Oldsmobile’s offerings of the day were equally impressive, if not more so than the tried and true Bel Airs. From upmarket to experimental to performance leader, Olds played a number of roles over the years and this ’55 Super 88 Convertible manages to showcase nearly all of them at once.

In 1955 sales were way up (40%) for Oldsmobile, and it was due in part to this division of GM offerings to compliment, not rival the Tri-Fives. This 1955 Super 88 convertible has a look that will stop traffic, two tone paint and chrome to remind you are in the mid 50’s, and pre finned swoop spear design to die for. Oh, and with its Rocket 88 power, and luxurious options you are definitely in your father’s Oldsmobile! (Nuthin’ wrong with that!)
