”The Oldsmobile line was completely redesigned for 1954, with a squarer, slab-sided design attractively divided by trim lines. There were 18 solid colors and 18 two-tone combinations available and all models got wrap-around windshields. Oldsmobiles from this period are known for the quality of their construction, decent performance, and durability. They also came in a remarkable range of colors, though repaints in the more extreme “Easter egg” tones are commonplace. Oldsmobile 88s were typically well equipped when new, so air conditioning, and power brakes, steering, and windows are easily found, all of which make driving one of these great cars more enjoyable today.” – Hagerty.com

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this wonderfully recreated example of the ever popular 1956 Oldsmobile Holiday Eighty-Eight Sedan Custom for your consideration! With more work completed than we can even list, there isn't a spot where it appears a penny was spared and the overall craftsmanship is clear to see when you are inside or out of it! This model hosts a modified 455ci engine includes an Edelbrock 600 carburetor on top of an aluminum intake manifold, most of the engine has seen a treatment in chrome including the thermostat housing, the radiator hose, alternator bracket and even the oil breather, the radiator is an upgraded aluminum unit along with an aluminum alternator and a custom louvered valance panel covers the area in front of the radiator to give it that clean finish. A fresh tune and oil change has been completed recently as well.

Other great features include the power steering and brakes, dual exhaust with chrome megaphones, faux lake pipes and spotlights, fender skirts, curb feelers to ensure you know how close you can get and a great set of Lancer full wheel covers. The exterior is just as well done with a great custom paint completed to it and is accented by its custom front bumper and chrome trim sitting in great condition all the way around. There is also a custom grill added, a great looking sun visor which is believed to be original along with most if not all the trim and to add to the style, a great set of chrome spotlights. This vehicle has had a professionally completed appraisal only a few years ago when the market was low and still came out well above the $40,000 mark even then! This sale also includes owner's manual, shop manual, fitted front bra, plenty of receipts from the restoration and yes, even the hat and scarf come with it! Call or email us soon to get your opportunity at something very special!
