In the 1950’s, as GM developed it’s Corvette for Chevrolet, the other motor divisions contemplated their own version.  

This Olds sports car, based on the same platform as the Corvette, never made it to production.

And a slight variation, I have to assume a later version, maybe ’55.

Check out the little fins.  I think this is beautiful.  Those fins appeared again in the early 60’s Cadillac.

    Absolutely DYING over the chrome tips on the rear end of the gold car. Not that I’d turn the silver one down.

    It’s a perfect Olds interpretation of the Corvette.

    Do any of these concept cars still exist? if not, did the comanies destroy the cars? Oy, hate to think of that!

      The gold F-88 sold at the Barrett Jackson auto auction in Scottsdale 5 or 6 years ago for $3.24 million. It’s now part of the Colorado Gateway Auto Museum. The museum’s Founder, John Hendricks, was the chairman and CEO of The Discovery Channel.

      I don’t have anything on the whereabouts of the silver model yet.

      Thanks Allee!
