Oldsmobile was on a roll in 1952. Its high compression overhead valve V-8 engine was the hottest power plant in America even four years after it was announced in 1949. The success of Oldsmobile's formula brought it fourth place in sales among American marques. Oldsmobile was justly proud of its V-8 leadership and made every effort to promote it, as this 1952 Oldsmobile Super 88 convertible so amply demonstrates with its Plexiglas window in the hood to show off the engine. Probably ordered by a proud Oldsmobile dealer for showroom display, it is a reminder of the importance of the automobile, and the rite of annual model announcements, in the early 50's. It has a great look in black with maroon upholstery and a tan cloth top and is fitted with many options including Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, radio, power top, Autronic Eye headlight dimmer, wheel covers, whitewall tires and the Fifties' version of an onboard navigation system, a compass built into the dashboard. The paint, interior, chrome and top are all very good and the engine compartment is fully detailed and dressed to show proudly through the Plexiglas hood window. This is a car that will attract serious positive attention no matter where it is driven.
