SUPER EIGHTY-EIGHT — This middle series was restyled and completely different than the Eighty-Eight series. The tables were turned this year with the restyled 88 predicting some of the 1952 Ninety-Eight styling cues. The Rocket V-8 was the only engine available. With its five body styles the Super 88 offered buyers more selection than the other Olds series. A Deluxe package was offered on this series. It included items from both the standard and Deluxe Eighty-Eight packages, plus low pressure tires, special interior chrome door trim, exposed chromed roof bows and dual rear quarter courtesy lights. Upholstery choices were colored leathers, nylon cloth or nylon cord. Standard tire size was 7.60 × 15 inches.
