Briefly about the project
When Mike purchased this 1950 Oldsmobile 88 Rocket he trusted us to restore this classic back to better than new driving condition. What started out as a general service and inspection to see what the vehicle needed, snowballed into a restoration project of nearly all major vehicle systems, along with reupholstering and adding seat belts to the interior. The very first component that needed to be addressed was the failed starter, resulting in a rebuild. The vehicle’s entire electrical harness, from front to back, was tossed and replaced with a brand new one. Fuel delivery and ignition was poor in every aspect which concluded to new components being fitted, some of which including a rebuilt carburetor, plugs, lines, as well as dialing everything in. Both the cooling and brake systems were addressed and redone. To complete the package the entire front and rear suspension was overhauled to ensure the vehicle performs well as a complete driver!
