The Oldsmobile F-88 was a dream car created in 1954. It was built on the chassis of the Chevrolet Corvette and shared its 102 inch (2,591 mm) wheelbase. The F-88 was also made of fiberglass. The car used a 324 cubic inch (5.3 liter) Super 88 V8 engine with a four-barrel carburetor with a tiny, flat air cleaner. The Corvette-derived rear axle had a ratio of 3.55:1. The console was modified from the 1953 Oldsmobile console with a tachometer added and customizing the facia of the gages. The instrument panel of the F-88 was later used on a Cutlass. Less than five F-88s remain to this day. One sold at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction for over three million dollars, which is the BJ record to this day.
