When the previous owner purchased the 1952 Oldsmobile Super 88 presented here, it had recently been treated to an extensive cosmetic restoration. Needing only minor mechanical attention to bring its performance up to par with its visual condition, it was given a tune up, the four-barrel carburetor was rebuilt, and the front brake cylinders were replaced. Mr. O'Quinn acquired the car in 2007, and it has been maintained in his collection ever since. The lovely mint green exterior finish is complemented by a black top with dark red piping to match the interior upholstery. The car presents very well and is in excellent condition throughout. The interior is very nice, devoid of major imperfections in the leather, dash or carpets. Panel fit is good, and the engine compartment was fully restored as well and is period correct in appearance. The chrome is of the same high-point caliber, and the odometer currently reads 44,040 miles.

American convertibles of the 1950s continue to be strong collector cars for countless reasons, and for Oldsmobile in particular, the advent and widespread use of the Rocket V8 engine has made their convertibles all the more desirable. Equipped with GM's Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, this wonderful open car is a rolling showcase of 1950s innovation.
