1954 Oldsmobile F-88 Convertible Concept Car
In 1954 the F-88 was a Motorama “Dream Car” and was one of only two complete – with an unconfirmed possible two ‘shells’ – ever created. The F-88 presented here is literally the only car left of its kind and was acquired by the Hendricks Collection at the prestigious Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona for an auction record $3,240,000. After spending decades as a collection of parts stored in wooden crates, the F-88 was painstakingly reassembled and offered for sale at the 2007 auction. This acquisition made automotive history and is the “cornerstone” of the Gateway Colorado Automobile Museum. This groundbreaking design and legendary story is displayed in its own special room with a rotating display and period documentation worthy of the F-88!
