The Fiesta was a car made by Oldsmobile which only lasted for one season in 1953. Only 458 cars were ever made.

The Fiesta was styled as a futuristic 'dream car' like many cars of the 1950s. The Fiesta had a primitive "hockey-stick" side trim styling and a wraparound Panoramic windshield.

The Fiesta was basically a stock (but fully equipped) 98 convertible with a tuned 170-horsepower version of Olds' 303-cubic-inch Rocket V-8. The car had a top speed of 95mph (153kmh) and many people thought that the car was too expensive for the performance it had.

Most Fiestas had colorful two-tone with a matching leather interior. They also had a self-shift Hydra-Matic gearbox and power steering which made turning the big car around.

The Fiesta wasn't cheap at $5717, and this is one of the reasons why it sold so pooly. It didn't need to make any money as in those days, GM could afford to do anything it pleased.
