1953 Oldsmobile Super 88
I will be listing a few cars here in the next week or two for my family. We are reducing are number of cars, so please see my other listings as well. I am not a dealer.
Original color of Pearl Gray with an Ivory Roof. Just a beautiful original car that has been well cared for by the previous owners. We had plans to drive and show this car on a regular basis, but sometimes life has other plans, and we have decided to sell it to someone who we hope will give it a good home ... Very hard to find this year and model. The 2 Door Sedan was the model that was raced by NASCAR in those years. Bill Blair won a race with one of these in Daytona back in 1953!
The engine idles well, makes great power, and sounds great! The transmission shifts very smoothly through all the gears. Steers and stops very nicely. Drives down the road with no unusual vibrations, noises, etc. Rebuilt engine and transmission, recent king pins, steering box, and alignment. Drives excellent!
This Oldsmobile is just a nice solid car everywhere you look (exterior, interior, engine compartment, trunk, etc). Nice body and neatly painted under-carriage. Doors open and shut very well with a nice "thud". Nicely detailed engine and trunk compartments. This car would look great at all your shows and cruise-ins. Again, this model is hard to find in original condition.
It was purchased new in North Carolina and has been there over 50 years before coming to North Florida. It has always been garaged and cared for.
Please see the photos and ask what questions you have.
I reserve the right to end the listing early at any time for the right offer. The car could be for sale locally as well.
Back in 1953, you could buy a new one of these for $2,395 ... What could this car be valued at today? If you look up NADA values for classic cars, you will find that a car like this in excellent condition showing minimal wear holds a value of $33,100.00! This car is already $6,600.00 below that value on the asking price! These cars are going up in value very quickly. You might want to grab this one before someone else beats you to it.
I welcome personal inspections and appraisers. Shown by appointment.
Drive home or I can help ship this car to your door at a reduced rate via enclosed transport. If you are a long distance or overseas, I will try to work with you on the shipping. Please contact me for details.
If you need help financing, I would suggest contacting a great company such as JJBest. They are easy to work with.
