For sale in our Milwaukee Showroom is a stunning 1953 Oldsmobile Super 88. With only 51,000 miles, you’d be hard pressed to find a Super 88 in better condition. Everything on this classic cruiser works just as it did when it was new; from the lights to the speedometer and even the analog clock in the dash. Recent work on the vehicle includes the addition of a power antenna, the door jams were repainted and seals were replaced, new alternator, and new electronic fuel pump.
Under the hood of this Olds is a numbers-matching 303 CID Rocket V8, as well as the original 4-speed Hydra-Matic transmission, which was only equipped in early model year Super 88’s. Late model year vehicles were equipped with Buick’s 2-speed Dynaflow automatic transmission, as a fire in GM’s Hydra-Matic plant in Livonia, Michigan, the only source of the Hydra-Matic at the time, caused the plant to seize operation. Unlike the original Hydra-Matic plant, this Super 88 has survived the test of time and runs and drives like a car less than half its age and is one of the last cars with a Hydra-Matic from the original plant.
