132198 / 1957 Oldsmobile: Golden Rocket 88
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/blcwa26
Don't be fooled by the large-by-huge chrome wheels it's wearing today, this
particular '57 Golden Rocket 88 is an authentic J2 car, and is extensively
and thoroughly restored to original condition from top to bottom. Our
documents suggest that this is one of only four Golden Rocket 88 2-door
sedans in existence with the J2 engine.
The two-tone bodywork on this car is spectacularly done and looks
especially striking in black and white with a red stripe in the chrome trim
that separates the two halves. Bodywork is beautiful, with straight panels
and excellent fit throughout, evidenced by the miles-deep reflections in
The real story on this Olds is the J2 371 cubic inch engine under the hood.
Fully rebuilt during the restoration, it runs like new and the passing of
years has proven that these are some extremely durable engines. Detailing
is first-rate too, from the 'Oldsmobile J2 Rocket" decals on the valve
covers, to the correct 2-barrel carburetors, to the original power steering
system that's fully functional. You'll note that this engine sports a trio
of shorty air cleaners on the carbs, but the original dual oil-bath air
cleaner is also included.
The engine is backed by a 3-speed Hydramatic transmission, and drives the
original rear end. Brakes were rebuilt to stock specifications, as was the
suspension, although the car was given a subtle, aggressive look by
tweaking the spring height slightly. The car wears a set of chrome Billet
Specialties wheels, but the original 15-inch steel wheels and plain hubcaps
From the tri-tone seats with patented GM comfort weave cushions, to the
positively breathtaking instrument cluster, this interior is new. The
original radio has been upgraded to include an iPod interface. The trunk is
sporting a custom carpet, but an original trunk mat is included.
This Olds is fast, comfortable, luxurious, and about 2/3 the cost of a
comparable Chevy. There are no irreversible modifications, and this car
could be put back to 100% stock condition in an afternoon. Act fast and

Information about Oldsmobile V8 engines
In this video I talk about the "late" Oldsmobile V8 and offer tips on how
to identify them by number.
"Late" in this instance means 1964-1990. Early('49-64) Olds engines are an
entirely different block, etc.
Sometimes my info gets a bit twisted when it stays inside my head for a
while, so a correction is that '77-80 heads are 3A, not 4A. 4A heads are
Also, to clarify and avoid confusion, this...7 A is a 350 head, this...7A
is a later 307 head. You can also tell the difference easily by the ports.
Late 307 and 260 ports are half the size of any other versions.
Trivia: The Olds 403 was used in 1977-79 Pontiac Trans-Am's, but not all of
Of note...the engine in the video is painted the incorrect shade of gold,
which appears to be the Krylon generic gold. The proper shade is slightly
darker and less "glitzy"

Here's a cool car all by itself -- the 1971 Oldsmobile Cutlass. Bright
metallic blue with a white vinyl top, color matched wheels, a clean
interior and a lower price tag than big brother 442s. Not only is the car
in great shape but it's affordable and a dream to drive!
This 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass is a true classic. The metallic blue paint is
beautiful and looks great with the white vinyl top. The pin-striping is
very well done and ads a detailed look to the body. The body lines are
straight; there isn't a wave or ripple in sight. To be completely honest, I
would say the chrome bumpers are in average shape. The body gaps, door and
trunk lips and jambs are clean and rust free.
Raise the hood and check out the 350ci motor (casting # 395558) and the 350
turbo transmission. The proper shade of
Oldsmobile gold paint covers the motor while smooth satin black does the
same for the rest of the compartment. The headers have some scale on them,
but they are solid. There is a chrome intake, HEI distributor, painted
alternator, newer clutch fan, new wiper motor, and a new battery. Up front
you will see the rebuilt radiator. Notice that the car was originally
equipt with A/C, but there is no compressor now. It would be an easy to get
the A/C running if that is something you require in your cruiser. The motor
fires up willingly and runs great!
Fresh black chassis paint coats the frame and floorboards. The rockers are
in great shape, you can still see the spot welds, and there isn't a speck
of rust anywhere. There's a new Exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers, and a
new gas tank. You'll see new brake lines, new fuel lines and rebuilt
springs and air shocks. A 10 bolt posi-traction lives out back. The lower
control arms have been boxed in for extra support. 4 wheel drum brakes and
14" BF Goodrich Radial T/A's grace the corners and complete the package.
Open up the door and check out the interior of this Cutlass. All of the
wood grain detail in the door panels, dash and console really add to the
classy feel of this Olds. The carpet, headliner and upholstery are in good
shape. In between the bucket seats sits the console and shifter. A trio of
aftermarket gauges under the dash keep better tabs on the motor than the
stockers while remaining the only non stock item in the interior -- I'm not
sure you could ask for more!
With its clean finish, neat upgrades, original interior and excellent
overall condition this car is a rising star among collectors! Call today! 7
