This 1952 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight is a well-priced classic that gives you some of the best styles around. Plus, there is a cool mix of a preserved chrome cruiser with the right upgrades to make it more enjoyable for modern times.

A car like this is about being a car you can have fun with. That spirit starts with the paint. The cream and green is a two-tone that feels right for the 1950s. But that roof has some added flair with a nice metallic glow. The finish is complete but the kind of driver-ready style that's ideal for care-free cruising. And a big reason why the Eighty-Eight is so attractive is the brightwork. The bumper and grille dominate the front end with a tasteful rounded style. The side trim is pure art. You have a streak that goes from the headlight through the front door, and the rear door has an accent piece that's the jet-age style of a Rocket Olds. Plus, the tail light treatment gives this a hint of a tailfin. Fender skirts, whitewall tires, and the iconic Oldsmobile globe logo leading the way are all part of the total style that really make this vintage sedan a distance way to get around.

The interior continues the color theme. Green and cream is intertwined on the door panels, headliner, and dash. But the place it looks the best is on the seats. It's a thoughtful style with the cream cloth finished with green piping. Just like the exterior, the full package is focused on offering a driver-ready style. There's enough interior room to take everyone on ice cream runs. There's even an upgraded retro-style AM/FM digital tuner radio for better driving music. And vintage lovers will appreciate details like the bright dash trim, classic steering wheel, and passenger-side spotlight.

With a car that has been so authentic so far, it's great to see a correct-style 303 cubic-inch V8 under the hood. It's an honest presentation that has some of the best classic details, including the Oldsmobile Rocket valve covers and air grabber that would become a hot rodder favorite over the years. You also have worthwhile upgrades like a four-barrel carburetor, a 12-volt electrical system, and an alternator. Plus, you have great driving features, like the Hydramatic automatic transmission and upgraded front disc brakes.

This is true classic distinction offered for a value price. Call now!
