This 1955 Oldsmobile Super 88 Coupe is a cool 50s American Classic that has been fully rebuilt and tastefully modified into a mild custom cruiser. The car went through a full custom build in the USA before being imported to Australia in 2010. The car came into Melbourne where it spent most of its life here before heading to Sydney.

Starting with the body of the car, it was stripped back during the restoration and professionally repainted in a traditional two tone white over red colour combo. The white on the car has a silver pearl through it for a mild custom look. The chrome and stainless trim, and there is a lot of it, was all either refinished or replaced. The car is slammed to the ground thanks to air bag suspension over a set of 17” American Racing wheels.

Open the door and you will find an interior that has been completed refinished in the traditional red and white. Everything from the carpets to the headliner has been replaced or refinished inside. The seats have been redone in leather and the door trims redone to match. Hidden in the glove box are the controls for the air suspension system and the air conditioning with vents neatly mounted under the dash. The factory steering wheel and column auto shifter remain in place with a light up gear indicator panel in the dash. The boot has been neatly panelled out and completely retrimmed to match the interior.

Under the bonnet now lives a GM Performance ZZ4 350ci crate engine. The engine has been upgraded with an Edelbrock intake and carburettor fed by a Holley polished dual air cleaner. The engine bay is well presented with pearl white painted inner guards and fire wall, chrome rocker covers, polished air cleaner, billet serpentine belt kit, polished alloy radiator and stainless braided lines throughout.

The engine is paired to a GM Turbo 350 automatic transmission and power is fed to the rear wheels through a Nine inch diff. The brakes have been upgraded to be power assisted, four-wheel discs with drilled and slotted rotors all round. Steering has been upgraded to a rack and pinion power steering system. The suspension has all been upgraded with a full front end featuring tubular control arms and Shockwave air bags. The rear end has been upgraded to a triangulated four link with Shockwave air bags. The air suspension is controlled by an Air Ride Technologies RidePro e2 ECU and controller which features preset ride heights and self-levelling. The air tank and compressor are hidden behind a false wall in the boot of the car.

If you’re looking for a cool 50s custom cruiser they don’t come much cooler than this one. This Olds Super 88 pillarless coupe is a much rarer alternative to a Chevy Belair, Buick Special or Ford Customline. Built with an Old school mild custom flavour up top, but with extensive upgrades throughout the car, it’s certainly one you’re going to want to own.
