1953 super 88 Hardtop

I recently acquired this 53 Oldsmobile Super 88 Holiday Hardtop to tinker with and do some mild custom Rat Rod mods too. After some looking over decided to sell as it is beyond my scope. It has the original 303 engine and Hydromatic. I started setting my goal on finding a more affordable restoration driver type project for now.

This is not like some really rotten car, even though the pics look like it. This 53 Super 88 was pulled out beside a texas run down pole barn after 10-20 years of sitting. The asking price is 1900. I really want someone to save this car as it is a desirable all original 2 dr Holiday hardtop. Please PM for additional eng bay and interior pics.

Input on a value of the car in the current condition and any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you ! I just don't have the time for this one.

Someone on here put a 1975 Nova subframe with disk brakes and eng mounts for a cool resto-mod. on a different 53 - the thread is here somewhere.

Do you have the car listed on Craigslist as well? You might even consider putting an advertisement here:

Or here:
