Oldsmobile power remained central to the 88’s appeal. For 1957, engineers breathed heavily on the 324 CI Golden Rocket engine, bumping displacement a full 47 CI to 371 and raising compression from 9.5:1 to 10.0:1. They also introduced the famous J2 option that added three Rochester 2-barrel carburetors, a low-restriction air cleaner and dual exhaust. Rated at 300 HP, the J2-equipped V-8 backed by an automatic transmission powers this very sharp, frame-off-restored 1957 Rocket 88 convertible. Attractively finished in iridescent Charcoal Black paint, a power soft top and a very sharp red and white leather interior, it is furnished with power steering and brakes, power seat, tinted glass, fender skirts, a Wonderbar Super Deluxe radio, power antenna and rare factory air conditioning.
