Rocket 303 CID V8 - 4BBL - 160 HP - Automatic - P.S. - P.B. - P.Win - P.Top

This 1952 Oldsmobile 98 Convertible is a super rare, well-documented example of Oldsmobile's top-of-the-line cruiser in 1952. Oldsmobile's 98 dates back to the early 40s, when Oldsmobile transitioned from its letter-named cars ("F" and "L" series) to a numbering system (60, 70, and 90 series), with the 90 series sitting as the top dog. By 1948, Oldsmobile had completely redesigned its product offerings to align with its "Futuramic" marketing campaign. In 1952, the Ninety-Eight was the flagship car for Oldsmobile with the convertible model being the most expensive and rarest of them all. Today, the '52 Ninety Eight Convertible remains an ultra rare car with this one being 1 of 19 known to exist. Powering this 98 Convertible is an Oldsmobile Rocket 303 Cubic Inch V8 Engine with a single 4 barrel carburetor that pushed out 160 horsepower in its day. The Rocket 303 is mated up to a Super Hydra-Matic Automatic Transmission that anybody can drive with ease. Being the flagship Oldsmobile model, these 98s typically were well-optioned including this particular example. With Power Steering and Power Brakes, this 98 Convertible is easier and much more enjoyable to drive. The correct black cloth power convertible top goes up and down with the simple push of a button. The exterior on this '52 Oldsmobile has been refinished in its original color, Canto Cream. This Olds 98 sits on 4 wide whitewall tires with full hubcaps giving this car a truly 50s look. The interior on this '52 Olds is superb. The bench seats are covered in a light Blue leather which is correct for this car. The carpeting, door panels, dash, and steering wheel are also all in wonderful shape and have an elevated look. The instrument cluster is in its stock configuration with a 120 MPH speedometer, temperature gauge, fuel gauge, amp gauge, and oil pressure gauge. If you're looking for a super rare Olds, this 1952 Oldsmobile 98 Convertible is the car for you. Give us a call today!
