United States | Auburn, Indiana




The 1954 Super 88 was a fashion show all in itself. Rich fabrics in a wide range of brilliant colors were harmonized with exciting exterior presentations. Smartly designed appointments, functionally handsome hardware and flowing exterior panels all lend finishing touches of glamour.

This Gulf Turquoise with blue interior example is driven by a 371-cid V-8 engine that is mated to an automatic transmission. The car has power brakes and has been restored with many components receiving attention. Among this list of work, you will find a rebuilt Rochester carburetor, new battery, rebuilt Hydra-Matic transmission, new U-joints, rebuilt power brakes, new brake lines, new brake shoes, new wheel cylinders, new front wheel bearings, Newport Engineering electric windshield wipers, rebuilt radiator by Brassworks, added underdash gauges, new carpet, new weatherstripping, new windshield, new passenger glass, new Dextero 205/70R15 tires with white “port-a-walls,” new paint (base and clear) in original colors, new parking lenses, taillight lenses and exterior door handles from Fusick. Among the other fittings are original nylon and leather seats that are stated to be without tears and in good condition considering their age, original door panels and headliner, original padded dash in good condition, plus excellent chrome, stainless and badges. The rear bumper has been changed over from chrome to paint in its presentation.
