Opposite of the final tagline the company used, this car might very well have been your father’s Olds or even your grandfather’s and now it’s here at MotoeXotica Classic Cars. We are please to present this superb 1959 Oldsmobile Super 88 Holiday SceniCoupe. This car still retains a lot of its originality and was sold new in Waterbury Vermont in 1959

Assembled at General Motors’ Framingham, Massachusetts facility, this car is dressed in Frost Blue (code J), the paint appears white at first glance, especially on cloudy days. The car’s paint and trim are in near excellent condition, as are the windows, including the compound curved windshield and fastback-like rear glass, which created a large, airy greenhouse for driver and passengers. The car’s lights are all clear and intact, including the headlights separated by the parking lamps and the reverse lights set into the rear bumper. This car rides on BFGoodrich Silvertown wide whitewall tires, sized 9.00-14, surrounding factory wheel covers. The engine bay is very tidy, highly detailed and the battery appears new. All of the car’s body panels are solid and straight and the bumpers look great, too.

Under that counterbalanced hood is a 394 CID Rocket V-8 engine, buttoned to a Hydramatic automatic transmission and a 3.64 rear end. Driver convenience features include Roto-Matic power steering and power brakes. Out back, the spacious trunk is in good order and includes a full-sized spare tire.

Inside, the original blue and ivory (code 338) interior is eye-catching. The seats are in original very good order, as is the blue carpet and matching headliner. The blue and ivory instrument panels has the proper “jet age” effect, with its dual cutout sections and the original, however, the horn and the windshield wipers are inoperable but the two-spoke steering wheel faces the driver and still looks futuristic. The inner door panels, mirror glass and gearshift lever are all in good order. Rounding out this interior is a factory AM radio.

This car comes with a treasure trove of period documentation, including Documentation includes original owner’s manual, original owner’s protection policy, various user guides, exterior color guide, service manual, various images, record album, posters, newspaper clippings, plus other assorted items.

This car is an excellent driver and would make for a unique entry at a local cruise night or to add to your 1950s, GM or Oldsmobile collection so head over and check it out in person!

All Oldsmobiles were completely restyled for 1959, with the 88 series given longer, lower and wider styling on a GM B-body chassis. The 88 shared its appearance with the top-model Oldsmobile 98. Styling highlights for the new models, promoted as the “Linear Look,” included six-window styling on four-door pillared sedans, glassy semi-fastback rooflines on Holiday coupes and flat-blade rooflines with thin windshield and C-pillars on Holiday sedans, which created a large open greenhouse effect. Two-door hardtops were called a “Scenicoupe,” four-door hardtops “Sport Sedan.” While many 1959 model cars featured bigger and sharper fins, Olds flattened its horizontally and reduced chrome from 1958 for a much cleaner look. Wheelbases on 88 models increased by one inch to 123 inches.

For 1959, the Super 88 series was positioned between the Dynamic 88 and the Ninety-Eight series. It came in five different bodystyles including coupes, sedans, convertibles and station wagons. The Super 88 was well equipped, having all of the equipment found on the Dynamic 88 plus the addition of rocker panel moldings, parking brake lights, vinyl headliner, special emblems and carpeting.

Competition to this Oldsmobile in 1959 included Buick’s Invicta two-door hardtop, DeSoto’s Adventurer two-door hardtop, Dodge’s Royal Lancer two-door hardtop, Edsel’s Ranger two-door and Mercury’s Montclair two-door.

This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 38,867 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, mileage exempt title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
