1959 Oldsmobile Eighty-EightThis is my 1959 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 Sedan. It was restored by the previous owner and it is in very nice shape. It starts, runs, turns, drives, and stops as new. There is zero rust on the car and it is solid, straight, complete, and beautiful.
I am picky and will described the car honestly:
The exterior is nearly flawless. I got the first and only ding on it just the other day. I could only find one small scratch. The passenger side front panel chrome strip is included, but it didn't hang it because it needs a little straightening by someone more skilled than me. The car is a little dusty in the photographs. It shines like new. The chrome is good to great.
The interior is original and shows well. The headliners, dash, door cards, and seats are in great shape. There is 2 inches of stitching on the front bench at a seam that could be resewn. There is a tiny cigarette burn on the back seat. It must be old, because there is zero smoke smell in the car.
I had all 5 tires replaced and the rims were powder coated black (original was white). The wheels have their original caps and rings.
The odometer works and shows the original 66,911 miles. It will have more, as I intend to show the car at Back To The 50's in Minneapolis next weekend. I have confidence the car will make the trip with no issues.
The engine could be detailed. The speedometer ("Safety Spectrum") makes noise but does not work. The heater core is not hooked up. I assume it is plugged up.
There is a reasonable reserve on the car. It is far less than what I have invested in it. I don't need to sell the car, but it should go to someone with more time to enjoy it.
