1959 Oldsmobile 88 Dynamic
Oldsmobile 88 Dynamic. Fully restored 1959 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 sedan. It's a rare car to begin with, but to have one restored to this level, is almost un-heard of. The comprehensive restoration took many years to complete.
The original 371 High Compression Olds Rocket engine was removed and fully rebuilt to factory specifications, then detailed to a high standard. The transmission was gone through and was reinstalled with the engine. New dual exhaust with mild turbo mufflers giving the car a great low rumble. Many new parts were used including; all mounts, power steering pump, hoses, water pump, carburetor rebuilt, ignition updated, radiator was boiled and re-cored, u-joints, shocks, brake master cylinder, wheel cylinders, brake hoses, fuel tank, fuel lines, speedo cable etc. to just name a few.
Then the body and interior was fully stripped. The body work was completed and was block sanded and primed, then painted its original color of Russett Metallic (MMM). Later fully color sanded and polished to a mirror finish. The paint and body of this car is truly beautiful. All of the stainless trim was polished to a chrome-like finish with any dents or imperfections fixed. The bumpers were re-chrome plated to show quality. All new hardware was used when possible along with all new rubber weather-strip in the door jambs and trunk. The trunk was refinished with a similar to stock splatter paint. The original spare is unused and looks great. Chrome mag wheels with "Oldsmobile" center caps and new radial tires put the finishing touch to the exterior of this Olds.
The interior is simply OVER THE TOP! It was the last part of the restoration that was completed. The carpet is correct multi color loop custom fit to this car. The headliner is tan cloth and fits to perfection. The dash is refinished and highly detailed with crisp gauges. Everything works as expected; including wipers, lights, turn signals, horn, speedo and high/low beams. The radio is a modern digital AM/FM CD Player that sounds great and is professionally mounted in the dash without modifying the dash or the chrome trim. An original radio could easy be reinstalled without trouble. The seats and door panels are REAL LEATHER and beautiful! The stitching is straight and precise, the leather is soft like what you would find in a modern luxury car and feels great to sit in. All of the seat foam has been replaced giving the seats that great feel.
The restoration of this beautiful Olds cost far more than the advertised price and is a bargain as far as today's prices go. It's very reliable and fun to drive and is ready to take you, your family and friends to the local cruise night in style. Cruising it around I get lots of "thumbs up" because it's so unique and beautiful IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR AN AFFORDABLE CLASSIC CAR THAT IS DONE AND SIMPLY READY TO ENJOY.........THEN THIS IS THE CAR FOR YOU.
