1955 Oldsmobile 88 Holiday Hardtop Coupe


Up for bid is a 1955 Oldsmobile 88 Hardtop. I have owned this vehicle for 3 years now and have done many upgrades to the vehicle. It started out in need of a new paint job and interior. The only rust in the car was a small spot on the passenger rocker panel. Floors are solid as well as the entire undercarriage. This car came out of Texas. After the body was ready it was painted a dark maroon and pearl white two tone. The glass does not show signs of delamination or fog, but the windsheild does have one crack across the drivers side, and the passenger side glass is cracked, both of which are reproduced. All the trim is there and is in driver quality. All lights work as they should. The original radio is in place, but a aftermarket CD player is mounted in the glovebox. The interior was completely redone. Sound deadner is under the entire floor as well as doors. Seats are out of a 63 Impala. Paded dash is original. Seats were completely redone with new foam, and covered in a tan vinyl with white pleated inserts. Trunk houses the air tank, compressor and valves for the airride. The Oldsmobile still gets its power from the original 324 Rocket engine, which is mated to a more modern 700R4 transmission. Power steering works like a new car. Brakes were updated with a newer mastercylinder, replacing the treadel-vac system. The front suspension is still the original, but the coils were replaced with airbags. Out back the leaf springs were replaced with truck-arms, panhard bar and airbags. Cruises easily down the highway  with the overdrive transmission. I have enjoyed owning this vehicle, but can only have so many. This is not a show car, but rather a cruiser to take to car-shows and enjoy driving. Other notable things that have been done are a new electric Holley fuel pump, new fuel sender in tank, new battery, newer four-barrel carb, fuel regulator, Speedometer and gauges repaired and work, 12 volt replacing 6 volt.  It needs the steering wheel painted, and could use a center console to hide the driveshaft tunnel. This is a prefect vehicle for someone wanting to get into a vintage vehicle at a reasonable price. Im sure there are things I forgot to mention, if you have any questions, please call me at (515)-851-2451.

Jay Leno bangs up his own Toronado in GT6

Wed, 11 Dec 2013 12:33:00 EST

Ever since Gran Turismo 4, Jay Leno has had at least one of his cars included in the popular racing simulator (starting with the Tank Car), and more of his machines appears in Gran Turismo 6. They include this nose-heavy, front-wheel-drive V8-powered muscle car. Yes, that aptly describes a 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado - except Leno's is rear-wheel drive. And it has a Cadillac CTS-V race engine modified to pump out 1,070 horsepower.
For the latest Jay Leno's Garage episode, he takes his real Toronado out for a cruise and then drives the virtual one like he stole it, accruing some body damage along the way. Leno also drives the virtual supercar Mercedes-Benz designed for GT6, the AMG Vision Gran Turismo Concept that debuted at the LA Auto Show, along with the real one, which is a 1:1-scale model. The model is radio-controlled and equipped with a small electric motor, sufficient to move it on and off of auto show floors.
Head below to watch the episode, which includes a few words from GT6 creator Kazunori Yamauchi.
