Article Written by : Legendary Videos

Is this 1953 Oldsmobile Rocket 88 the first American muscle car of all time? Well, no, not exactly. However, this beautiful classic muscle car from 1953 is the older brother to the 1949 Oldsmobile Rocket 88, which is in the eyes of many auto-philes the first ever American muscle car. And, this 1953 beaut boasts those testosterone-ladened features you want in a powerful ride such as its classic push-rod technology, a 303 Oldsmobile Rocket V8 engine, power brakes and steering, and a two-speed auto-hydromatic tranny.


That was nuts. Wait until you see the next video below.
