1950 and Oldsmobile launch its Rocket 88, the car that created the muscle car movement in the USA. Truly an iconic car on so many levels, being one of the 1st cars to feature an Over Head Valve V8 engine, 4 speed automatic and in the case of this Rocket a convertible with power operated folding hood.Ike Turner was so taken by the car, that he wrote the hit Rocket 88, which is claimed to be the start of the Rock'n'roll era.150BHP was enough power to see the car reach 100MPH (with a following wind), although stopping on its drum brakes would take some forward planning.What makes this car so unique is not only that the car has covered 1300 miles from new in 70years, but its original and unrestored condition. Of course, there is some patina to the paintwork and interior, but it only adds to this unrepeatable example. From what we can see, the seats and carpets are also original and show very little signs of wear.Starts on the button (yes push button start) even its automatic choke works like new, the engine settles into an even and creamy burble.Under the bonnet it is more originality, with its 6volt system and the low sitting V8 OHV engine. Even the engine mounts and bolts look untouched, giving further confidence to the car's originality.Its keys, door and boot locks all work, and the car even retains its spare wheel and jack.
