Whether it’s a ‘58 Edsel or a ‘63 Corvette, all collector cars have dedicated fans and admirers. But not many of those vintage machines can claim to be both rare and highly desirable from the day they left the showroom. Combining coupe-like form with truck-like function, and sold as a low-production ‘halo model’, this slick Oldsmobile Fiesta is a true all-time all-star. So, how do you make a car that’s already as hot as this street rod Olds even more desirable? You completely refinish its body, bolt up some fresh suspension components, throw in a buff big block and line it with a nice combination of classic style and modern convenience. If you like your old school cruiser to be show ready AND fun to drive, but a sedan is just too common and too cramped, this plus-size rocket is your next classic!

Despite the exceptional sales of Oldsmobile’s premium 88, the brand’s higher priced Fiesta proved less popular and, thanks to attrition, has now become even scarcer. Fortunately, this clean resto-mod has always been a solid, complete beast that benefitted from decades of owners who were smart enough to know what they had. When the car’s Ionia-produced body fell in to the hands of loving enthusiasts, big money was spent on a thorough, frame-off restoration. And today, this Olds hangs straight, mostly-original sheetmetal under a rich combination of bronze and silver two-stage that’s been buffed to a fantastic shine.

One thing about classic car guys is their uncanny ability to methodically plot, plan and execute even the minutest details. Whoever restored this highbrow hardtop probably spent months scheduling, budgeting and searching for the exact elements that would bring their vision to life. At the front of the car, a broad yet sinuous bumper hangs prominent “O L D S M O B I L E” lettering between a fine stainless grille, clear parking lamps and chrome-trimmed halogen headlights. At the top of that grille, fresh Oldsmobile hood ornaments ride inside classic rocket fender toppers. At the back of that hood, tinted greenhouse glass is highlighted by well-maintained frames, simple chrome mirrors and opposing stainless wipers. At the base of those mirrors, straight trim spears found modern Cadillac Escalade heat extractors below cursive “Fiesta” fender emblems. Behind those spears, polished and pinstriped profile guards complement traditional front doors, shaved rear doors and monochromatic fender skirts. And at the back of the car, a bronze-detailed bumper reflects expressive tri-bar brake lights and a stainless-trimmed tail gate.

This sweet looking cruiser is set in motion by a show-detailed 455 that, thanks to ample torque, provides solid, reliable road trips. Stomp the throttle and a coated Edelbrock carburetor mixes juice from clean, stainless fuel lines with wind from a stylish, two-tone air cleaner, and shoves it into an Edelbrock Torker intake. Behind that intake, a proven MSD distributor feeds fire through beefy MSD Super Conductor plug wires, which are loomed between mirrored valve covers and fully restored exhaust manifolds. In front of those manifolds, traditional V-belts spin a chrome alternator opposite a coated Tuff Stuff AC compressor. And, in front of that compressor, a beefy radiator cycles water past a large electric puller fan. Aesthetically, the car’s large, gold block looks fantastic against its metallic bronze paint. The stout mill is miles of fun, wringing massive grunt from one of the largest and most powerful valvetrains ever created. And the entire set up flat out rocks, from its modern power steering to its billet brake reservoir.

Throw the car on a lift and you’ll find solid floors that, along with a professionally restored chassis, sport a fresh, road-ready appearance. Behind the big block, a 700R4 4-speed spins torque through a fully rebuilt rear end and pleasant 3.42 gears. Holding that well-mannered powertrain in place is a fully-sorted suspension which includes a front sway bar, traditional control arms and correct leaf springs. Easy turns are provided by modern power rack-and-pinion steering. Short, confident stops come courtesy of 4-wheel power disc brakes. At the center of the car, a 2.5 inch, true-dual exhaust system sends spent gases through deep sounding turbo mufflers. And putting the power to the pavement is a nice set of 15-inch wire wheels that spin classy 235/75 BF Goodrich Silvertown whitewalls around ornate stainless center caps.

Climb inside this razor-sharp Olds and you’ll find a thoroughly modified interior that features dramatic style and enough great looking trim to payroll a small upholstery shop. Covered in subdued leather, the car’s cushy bench seats feature sturdy lap belts and power front adjustment. Beneath those seats, plush carpet frames mirrored sills and silver-trimmed foot pedals. Opposite that carpet, factory courtesy lamps highlight a tight leather headliner. At the sides of the car, two-tone door panels look great hovering between small chrome handles, convenient power windows and streamlined stainless trim. In front of those panels, a body-matched dash hangs an XM-capable Alpine CD player between a small clock, an old school Autronic Eye and billet accessory knobs. Pop open the long glove box and reveal three auxiliary gauges that monitor oil pressure, water temps, and voltage next to controls for the Vintage Air air conditioning. In front of the driver, a polished tilt steering column spins an aluminum, thick-rim wheel. And behind the passengers, a carpeted cargo area is primed for lawn chairs and picnic supplies.

It’s no wonder the Oldsmobile 88 enjoys such huge popularity, because it just doesn’t get much better than this slick Fiesta resto-mod. With a plush interior, head turning body and reliable streetability, this wagon is the perfect combination of form and function. In fact, this Olds is the best of all worlds!
