1959 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight 2 DOORHello! You are looking at a 1959 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 with custom paint and interior.
This car was painted in the late 90's but still looks pretty good. I'll go through what I know about the car:
Car runs and drives out great. Transmission and engine seem strong. It has the 371 Oldsmobile Rocket Engine with a 3x2 carb set up. Currently it is only running off of 1 carb (but runs good).
Interior is in pretty good shape, it does have velvet around the instrument panel and panel above the glovebox that is coming unglued. There are also a couple of pieces of vinyl in the back coming unglued beside the seat. The car has been signed by George Barris and Gene Winfield.
The speedometer, gasgauge, dash lights, heater controls, or radioaren't working. It is possible it is a fuse(s), I haven't checked.
It does have power brakes but they will need to be adjusted. They work but they are sketchy. The body is in great shape as you can see. There is a small place toward the back where it lookslike minor rust is starting to bubble. The guy I got the car from said no rust but I can see tiny bubbles starting to form in the back down low. Nothing major at all.
The doors have been shaved and the actuators aren't working so I just leave a window down (always park in the garage). I do have a couple of new actuators that came with the car. It does have a custom grill but I do have the original grill with original headlight buckets and rings.
The car has been lowered 2 inches all the way around.
All in all this is a very cool car that you do not see too many of. When I first got it I parked in the parking lot where I worked and no kidding, at least 15 people stopped to take pictures/videos. This is a fun car to own. If you have anyquestions please message or call me - four 1 seven - six six 4 - three 213.
