Product Code: 1956_OLDS_S88_CV_NO_PRK_SMALL

1956 Oldsmobile Super 88 Convertible Aluminum Parking Sign

The 1956 Oldsmobile Super 88 was marketed as 'The Car with the Power Personality. In the immediate Post War era, General Motors, led by Charles Kettering, had conducted engineering research resulting in the discovery of the economical and performance benefits of using high compression ratios in combination with leaded fuels. This led to Cadillac and Oldsmobile designing their own compact, high-compression Overhead Valve V-8 engines. Cadillac had beaten Oldsmobile to developing the first modern V8, however, it was Oldsmobile's General Manager Sherrod E. Skinner who had conceived of the idea to install the Olds 'Rocket V8' into a mid-size, lightweight body, thus beginning a new performance age in America. The 1956 Super Eighty-Eight was positioned above the entry-level Eighty-Eight and below the top-of-the-line Ninety-Eight. Body styles included a 2- and 4-door sedan, 2- and 4-door Holiday Hardtop, and a convertible. The total production of the Super 88 reached 179,000 examples accounting for nearly 40-percent of Oldsmobile's total 1956 sales. Standard equipment included a cigarette lighter, turn signals, rubber floor mats, aluminum door sill plates, sun visors, dual horns, lined trunk, rotary door latches, armrests, bumper guards, courtesy lights, carpeting, foam rubber seat cushions, and deck lid '88' script. Power was from a 324 cubic-inch OHV V8 that offered 240 horsepower and 350 lb feet of torque. Prices ranged from $2,300 to $2,730.
