1954 Oldsmobile F-88 Convertible

Post by S7 Uncle Charles on Tue Sep 14, 2010 3:20 pm

1954 Oldsmobile F-88 Convertible Concept Car
After spending decades as a collection of parts stuffed into wooden crates -
the F-88 was reassembled.
In 1954 - the F-88 was a Motorama "Dream Car" and was one of only two -
or an unconfirmed possible three ever created.
The F-88 seen here is literally the only car left of its kind -
and was sold to John and Maureen Hendricks at the prestigious
Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona for an unbelievable
$3,240,000.
This acquisition made automotive history and is the "cornerstone"
of the Gateway Colorado Automobile Museum in its own special room
in a rotating display worthy of the F-88!

I watch a lot of the Barrett-Jackson auctions on the Speed channel ...never saw that one. Nice! They have cool older vehicles all the time.

This is a great article on the car. It even won an award for “best historical automotive story” or something like that. There is some really interesting history to that car. A good read if you have the time.
