Rocket 88

1950 Oldsmobile Rocket 88 Convertible

One of the Best 1950 Oldsmobile you will ever see 1950 Oldsmobile Rocket 88 Convertible. Vin. # 508L11583. Built to drive. To most of the Oldsmobile guys a 50 Olds powered by a J2 is the epitome of what that car should be. I wanted this car to look like it came from the factory with a J2 in it, classy and elegant, without all of the chrome and polished aluminum you see in other builds. Drivetrain. 1957 Oldsmobile J2 engine rebuilt and balanced Isky 256-HYD Supercam. Original J2 tri-power by Automotion. Custom air cleaner as used by NASCAR Oldsmobiles in the 50s. Very rare! Powermaster 100 Amp Alternator. Pertronix Ignition. Custom headers ceramic coated (There were never any aftermarket headers available for the J2) 200 R4 overdrive transmission. Bellhousing, flex plate Ross Engineering. High Torque starter Ross Engineering. 9 Ford differential with 3.89 gears. Front end is Fat Man Fabrications frame stub. Mustang II rack and pinion. Anti-Sway bar. Power disc brakes. Rear end stock trailing arms with air ride. Anti-sway bar. Power drum brakes. Base coat clear coat mirror finish. All NOS trim re-chromed or polished. Bumpers re-chromed. Lead used on all seams. No structural bondo light skim prior to paint. Custom radiator cowl. This has to be one of the best 1950 Oldsmobile in the country. Cond. # 1.\r\n

We charge a $50.00 doc fee for instate and $100.00 doc fee for out of state sales on top of the selling price. The State of Washington says we can charge up to $150.00 doc fee that is negotiable. The doc fees cover costs such as trip permits and FedEx costs.

We sell all of our vehicles     AS IS, NO WARRANTY.     We check them over, we do a report card and we grade and decode  each vehicle.  We have them serviced and safety checked.  You can see these reports on our web page    We try very hard to tell you everything that we know.  We give you lots of photos and video so you can see the vehicles very well. We have been in classic sales for more than 30 years.


Drager’s believes that it is very important to personally inspect the vehicle you are interested in.  If you cannot inspect it yourself you should hire an inspector.  Here are two very knowledgeable old car appraisers you can contact.
