1957 Oldsmobile 88
For 1957, the basic 88 was officially named Golden Rocket 88, taken from Olds’ 1956 Motorama two-passenger show car. However, the only badging identifying it as such was a simple “88” underneath each taillight. 1957 also offered the “J2” option, with three 2-barrel carburetors atop the 371 cubic inch V8; making this a true luxury performance car before we even knew such a thing existed.
Don’t be fooled by the large-by-huge chrome wheels its wearing today, this particular 57 Golden Rocket 88 is an authentic J2 car, and is extensively and thoroughly restored to original condition from top to bottom (and yes, original wheels and tires are included). Sources differ on how many were built and into which bodies they were installed, but they all agree that these are extremely rare cars.
