This is a survivor-style example of when American cars were long
and sleek, and the stylists ruled the road. So look over this 1959
Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 with its wide style, V8 power, and little
details - like the working AM radio - and you'll realize how rare
and distinct an opportunity this is.
With only a two-year production run, this is one of the rarest
full-size Oldsmobiles around. The era of extra-wide cars is
showcased on two sets of headlights with so much space in-between
that you can fit the bullet-nosed marker light in there with ease.
And there's even room to fully spell out the car's extra-tall
10-letter name on the grille. And we love the dual rocket hood
ornaments on each fender. The designers created a style line coming
off of them that looks like a vapor trail as it spreads down the
body and forms the tailfin. This was an exclusive feature to 1959,
and it really makes this look like a special vintage machine. And
speaking of classic, the correct Aqua Mist Poly paint is suspected
to be original to the car. While this has not yet been confirmed,
everyone will certainly think that with its well-earned patina. But
more than just survivor paint, you'll love how everything is
complete from the bumpers to the badging. And even the details are
complete, including the wheel covers and the fender skirts. And the
newer whitewalls look great against the white roof for a great
finishing touch of coordinating style.
The interior was refreshed later in life, but it has still worn in
enough to look good while still going well with the car's full
package. As a full-sized sedan, this is just as ready as ever to
take family and friends along for the ride. But the driver is the
one who gets to enjoy this Olds the most. The wraparound windshield
and stylized dual-spoke steering wheel give you a commanding view
of the whole road. It's the kind of thoughtful design that comes
from an era when artists were working on interiors. And all of the
components are in place. So it's impressive to see details working
like the dome light and AM radio.
A big sedan needs a big motor, and that's why it carries a correct
Oldsmobile Rocket V8. This is believed to be the 371 cubic-inch
version, and we bet people will marvel at everything from the
golden block paint to the correct decals in the engine bay. Thanks
to their durable construction, Oldsmobile engines of this vintage
are known for their reliability and longevity. Plus, good care
means the motor still fires up quickly and with a precision that's
an instant reminder of Oldsmobile's quality reputation. And the
Hydramatic transmission is a great classic way to have an easy
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, service manual,
and extra literature. This was a very unique year to own an Olds.
So if you don't act quickly, you might never see a well-kept
survivor-style one this great again. Call today!!!
