With a great color combo, droptop rarity, and Rocket V8 power, this 1956 Oldsmobile Royal 88 Convertible has a terrific appeal.
The two-tone baby blue and white paint conveys an elegance that you want from an Oldsmobile. And the way the trim line cuts through the door line, and provides a separation for these high contrast colors really gives this the look of an upper-class classic. More of this classic stylishness is seen on the brightwork, like the jet-inspired hood ornament, Olds' globe logos, and the front chrome bumper that fits the contours of the car while encapsulating the grille. This one really has a great sense of original-style chic, right down to details, like the wheel covers, badging, and fender skirts.

The convertible top fits with the color theme, and with the flip of a switch, it powers down to reveal even more great coordination on the interior. Two rows of leather seats give family and friends plenty of space to spread out. The '50s were all about big style and symmetry, and you see that everywhere from the dual-spoke steering wheel, to the dual oval design of the dash. The original style goes right down to the details, like the working parking brake indicator and AM radio that's still on display.
The Olds OHV Rocket V8 is an important motor, because it really helped ignite a power frenzy in the 1950s. This 324 cubic-inch powerhouse looks like they spent plenty making it appear like a time capsule, and we know you love how the boldly painted valve covers announce the motor. And while the setup has the right pieces in place for classic looks. It fires up nicely, and the dual exhaust is both authoritative and dignified. Plus, you have great cruising features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes.
The sale comes complete with original owner's manual. Convertibles represent some of the most expensive cars when new, and so they are also some of the rarest classics today. Don't let this classic Olds droptop slip away, call today!
