WEST COAST ORIGINAL - Same Family Owned for 40 years - Pampered - Well Cared For

Vintage Motorcars is very proud to present this absolutely beautiful 1954 Oldsmobile 88 Holiday Coupe.

This classic West Coast / California Black Plate Olds received a frame-on restoration in 2012, and has been stored in a climate controlled 'man cave' ever since. Let me first say; there is not now, neither has there ever been, any rust or damage issues of any kind. This car is solid, straight, and slick with the all the original sheet metal still intact. This car has been owned by 1 family for over 40 years, and has resided near Auburn / Truckee, CA for almost its entire life! Included with the car is a high-quality cloth car cover that the previous owner lovingly used to protect his “Baby”.

The paint is basecoat / clear coat and is easily an 8.5 out of 10. With no visible signs of body work anywhere to be found; this car is ready for the shows! All the exterior chrome and stainless in in excellent condition without any pitting, and all the glass is in excellent shape! The headlight bezels, door handles, hood ornament and all window trim shines like new! The front and rear windows roll up and down with ease.

The original 324 Rocket V-8 engine and Hydromatic Automatic transmission help this 50's cruiser float down the road effortlessly. The engine is very strong with no smoke or chatter, and the transmission shifts perfectly.

The car rides like it's floating on a cloud, and the power steering and power brakes make the cruise even more enjoyable.

This dream machine is sitting on factory steel wheels with Oldsmobile hubcaps and white wall radial tires.

Also included with this investment quality automobile are the following documents:
- California Black Plate
- Owner's Manual
- Oldsmobile Q & A handbook
- Multiple Magazine articles
- Various registration cards from the 70's

This is clearly a well-loved, cared-for automobile that has lived a pampered life. There are many cars from the 50's out there that have been built, re-built, raced, modified and brought back to life…. But you rarely come across an “honest” 50's cruiser like this one that hasn't been chopped up or beat to death. This is a real find.
