When I’m 64, Part 2 – 1950 Oldsmobile 88

August 15, 2014

So you found the charm of today’s Plymouth appealing, but can’t let go of the sub-100 horsepower figure? Well, there’s an answer for you – the Olds 88, with its 303ci V8 engine producing 50 more horsepower, for a total of 145hp. The V8 engine was a contributor to Oldsmobile’s image as a manufacturer of performance cars, and the 88 was a NASCAR winner, in addition to winning the 1950 Carrera Panamericana. 1950 was also the first year for a full (not split) windshield, and the whole car was new the previous year.
