1960 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight Holiday Coupe

This is an example of when American cars were long and sleek, and the stylists ruled the road. So look over all of this 1960 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 Holiday Coupe, and you'll realize how rare an opportunity this V8 hardtop really 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 where each of the quad headlights has room for their own individual pod, and the hood is as long as the horizon. And the sheetmetal is absolutely an amazing design. A crisp crease in the rear starts a style line that runs all the way around the car. And the trim does a fantastic job of mimicking the sleek roof line. But as amazing the Olds designers were in 1960, it's even more astonishing how well it's still presented today. The panels are quite straight and the factory-correct Garnet Red benefits from a respray later in life. There are some subtle upgrades, like the headlight eyelids and wire wheel covers, but it's all about delivering a cool cruising Olds.
The gray interior has a tasteful look, especially with the updated seats with comfy velour inserts. So it's nice that this coupe has the room 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 two-spoke steering wheel gives 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 - from the extra wide speedometer to the Wonderbar AM radio - so you get to experience this bright dash in all its glory. And you might have noticed the factory-style air conditioning (will need servicing) for that extra touch of luxury Olds presentation.
A big coupe needs a big motor, and that's why it carries a correct 394 cubic-inch V8 with a four-barrel carburetor on top. In fact, we bet people will marvel at classic details, like the golden block paint. Thanks to their durable construction, Oldsmobile engines of this vintage are known for their longevity. Today the motor still fires up quickly and with a precision that's an instant reminder of Oldsmobile's quality reputation. This is a luxurious Olds 88, and so the driving experience is meant to be an easy one. That's why it comes with features like the Jetaway Hydramatic automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes.
This was a very unique year to own an Olds. So if you don't act quickly, you might never see an awesome hardtop like this again. Call today!!!
