LOVELY RUNNING SMOOTH ORIGINAL OLDSMOBILE ROCKET 324cui 5.3Ltr V8 ENGINE STARTS FIRST TIME AT THE TURN OF THE KEY (I HAD THE DELCO REMY ORIGINAL STARTER OVERHAULED) ITS THE SAME AS A HYSTER FORKLIFT TRUCK, THIS CAR PACKS THE S88 HIGHER OUTPUT 205 BHP ENGINE WITH THE ORIGINAL ROCHESTER 4BBL CARBURETTOR WHICH WAS A FACTORY UPGRADE BACK IN 1955, I BELIEVE THE S88 ENGINE CAME AS STANDARD ON THE SUPER MODEL

THE CHROME AND STAINLESS ARE IN BEAUTIFUL CONDITION, NO PITTING / RUSTING OR TARNISHING ANYWHERE, THIS REALLY COMPLEMENTS THE BEAUTIFUL NICE QUALITY FACTORY POLAR WHITE / GLEN GREEN PAINT AND BODYWORK THE CAR HAS ! I DID ADD THE NEW TRUNK ROCKET 88 EMBLEM AS I THOUGHT IT JUST ADDED THAT FINAL TOUCH TO IT.

SILL PANELS BOTH INNER OUTER AND UNDERNEATH ARE LOVELY, NO SCRAPES / DENTS OR CRUSHED SEAMS, EVEN ALL THE FACTORY DRAINAGE LOUVERS AND RUBBERS ARE ALL STILL IN GREAT SHAPE, NOT CRUSHED OR FLATTENED.

IN THE BOOT IS A ORIGINAL STYLE RADIAL TYRE TO MATCH THE ONES ON THE CAR, JACK AND WHEEL BRACE ARE ALSO PRESENT IN THE TRUNK TO. IT IS LINED OUT WITH A GREEN FABRIC CARPET WHICH LOOKS IN KEEPING WITH THE GREEN CARPET INTERIOR AND GREEN PAINT ON THE LOWER OF THE CAR.
