Oldsmobile 88 Holiday Fiesta Station Wagon

Oldsmobile sat out the station wagon market from 1951 to 1956. When it did re-enter the segment, Olds did so with flair. Co-opting the name from the 1953 prestige convertible, the new ’57 wagons were all designated “Fiesta” and came in one of two forms: a pillared four-door and a pillar-less hardtop four-door. The pillar-less wagon was called “Holiday Fiesta,” consistent with Olds’ use of “Holiday” on hardtop coupes and sedans.

This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in July of 2011 at The Inn at St. John's, Plymouth, Michigan.

312 bhp, 371 cu. in. “J-2” overhead valve V-8 engine, three-speed manual transmission, coil spring independent front suspension, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 122.5".
