While Chevrolet may have stolen the show with it's bold and somewhat brash 57' Bel Air, other divisions inside General Motors were making gorgeous automobiles of a more discreet variety. The 1957 models from Oldsmobile were longer, wider, and lower with discreet fins and ornamentation. The rear window was a unique three-piece design and wrapped around almost as far as the front windshield, producing a very unique side profile and roofline. The 1957 Oldsmobile Supper 88 Holiday Coupe on offer here is finished in beautiful two-tone bronze and beige with the one year only accent stripe. The color combination along with the flowing side trim and rear wheel covers produce an appearance of movement even when it's standing still. While it may be a large car in overall size, the low profile and long wheelbase lend a lithe and sporty air. Wide whitewalls and chrome plated deluxe wheel covers are perfectly fitting of a sporty 50's Oldsmobile. The looks aren't deceiving however, because under the hood of this Oldsmobile is the rare T-400 J2 371 cubic inch V-8 with triple Rochestor two-barrel carburetion. This trick set up was an $83 option is 57' and bumped horsepower from the base 277hp to a nice round 300hp in J2 trim, more than even Chevrolet's hot 283ci/283hp fuel injected engine in the Bel Air and Corvette. This Oldsmobile was an iron fist in a silk glove given the long list of luxuries that came along with the horsepower. Power brakes, power steering, automatic transmission, factory air conditioning (one of the strongest blowing units ever), two stage heater, Deluxe AM radio, two-tone vinyl and cloth bench seats, it's all here. This Oldsmobile simply glides down the road like its riding on a cloud. People passing by stop and stare as they have never laid eyes on a 57' Oldsmobile and it's rear window is the conversation piece. Stop at a gas station and you'll have to stop and talk for at least 15 minutes before you can get back on the road. This Super 88 is really super! It is in incredible condition and starts with just a twist of the switch. If only all classic cars could be this easy to own and drive. One thing is for sure, you won't see another one soon, so hurry and contact Brian at 352-307-1968 today! Financing and transportation services are available!
