The 1956 Oldsmobile Golden Rocket Was a Retro-Futuristic Wonder Machine

The 1950s was a decade of signature design elements that are immediately recognizable over 60 years later. From fashion to cars, style was influenced by technology and the idea of the wonders that would become a part of our daily lives in the future. The 1956 Oldsmobile Golden Rocket exemplifies this mindset with a retro-futuristic design that was as striking then as it is today.
It seated two people and had a fabulous retro interior with blue and gold upholstery. It had a speedometer that was in the center console and a tilt steering wheel which was a new feature for the time. Even the way the car opened was unique.
