“Yes, here’s a car to admire for grace, charm and luxury … but above all, it’s a car to drive … Oldsmobile’s Ninety-Eight Holiday Coupe for 1955!”
These are the words with which Oldsmobile lured buyers into its showrooms in 1955. With “Rocket” styling and power, and color and trim combinations that allowed for an endless array of personalization, the 1955 Oldsmobiles were popular with American consumers for good reason.
This stunning 1955 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Holiday Hardtop Coupe is finished in an eye-catching color combination of Glen Green Metallic and Polar White and has only 47,100 original miles. Its gorgeous 2-tone color scheme is further enhanced by an abundance of chrome and brightwork. More recently repainted, its finish has a nice luster. Chrome dual exhaust tips add additional pop.
The interior is equally pleasing, featuring cloth and vinyl seats in Dark Green and White which echo its showy exterior colors. An impressive and commanding dash board features a multitude of chrome-recessed gauges and instrumentation that are in excellent condition. Its full array of auxiliary Sunpro gauges will keep you informed about what’s going on under the hood. You’ll also appreciate the convenience of its power windows, AM radio and clock.
Under the hood you will find a Rocket 324 CID V-8 engine mated to a Hydro-Matic Superdrive automatic transmission. This powertrain provides 202 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque—ample power to get you to those summer cruise-ins in style. Having just 47,100 original miles, this Olds runs and drives as well as it looks.
One item of note is that the radio and clock are not currently working. In addition, minor imperfections in the finish and bumpers do not detract from the overall appearance of this car.
If a beautifully running and driving 1950s classic with plenty of eye appeal is what you desire, look no further than this gorgeous 1955 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Holiday Hardtop Coupe!
