That is one beautiful Olds!! I LOVE the skirts and the color combo stunning. Modern cars for the money they charge should look at least half this good!

Considered upscale for the era, Oldsmobile was still holding on to a performance image when the new decade started. Partly due to the standard 315 horsepower 394 V-8 that came in models like this Super Cool Super 88. This very well could be your fathers Oldsmobile! This example is nice. Drop the power top to reveal a very nice 2 tone interior that 6 people can easily fit in. It is very comfortable to sit in and drive. The paint, body, trim, and interior are nice and the Pearl White Paint is gorgeous. Equipped with Power Steering and Power Assist Brakes this car drives great and is a pleasure to drive. It is very smooth, quiet, and comfortable. The Dual Exhaust give it that nice tone we all love. Matching Fender Skirts and Lake Pipes have been added but are easily removed for that Original Stock Look.
