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

What I have to say about the 1999 Alero: For 1999, Oldsmobile has replaced
the aged Achieva with the new Alero. Set to compete with the top dogs like
the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, stealing sales is very unlikely but
stealing sales away from the Dodge Sratus and Ford Taurus are easy. The
Oldsmobile has a very ergonomically correct interior and everything is easy
to reach and modern. The seats are very comfortable and material quality is
decent. Styling on the Alero is also a strong point with a nice curvaceous
front end that makes it stand out from other midsize sedans. All in all
great car from Oldsmobile.Like Camerons Car Reviews on Facebook!
1957 Oldsmobile Super 88 Tri-power 371 Rocket V8 - Rare J2 Option
I thought you'd like a look at this nicely restored 1957 Olds Super 88 2
dr. This awesome car also is equipped with the rare J2 option, which means
it has the Tri-power set-up atop the 371 Olds Rocket V8. The 371 Rocket has
the same bore as a 350 Chevy, but it has a longer stroke, which means it
cranks out a bunch of torque. This engine was factory rated at 400 LbFt of
torque and 277 horsepower. I hope you find
it interesting....thanks for taking a look!
