Meet a survivor from those heady post-World War II days of prosperity and plenty. MotoeXotica Classic Cars is proud to present this 1951 Oldsmobile Super 88 Convertible. A professional frame-on restoration project, the main selling point in 1951 was the new Rocket V-8 engine, which replaced the long-running inline six of previous years.

Presented in Chariot Red with a white power convertible top, the car’s paint is excellent with a brilliant luster. Likewise, the glass panes are in great condition. The vehicle’s lights are haze-free and intact and it rolls on Coker Classic whitewall tires, sized 215/75R15 with Olds hubcaps, which are as shiny as the car’s bumpers. The body panels are all straight and the white top is brilliant.

Inside are red stretch leather seats over tan carpeting. The seats look fantastic and contrast nicely with the carpeting. The red metal dashboard looks great and features a couple of surprises, a clock in the steering wheel and a dash-mounted compass with a light. There is also an AM radio in the dash. Unfortunately, after the car’s electrical system was converted to 12-volts, the radio became inoperable. The big, three-spoke steering wheel with its silver trim ring looks great and the door panels blend with the rest of the interior’s theme.
