RARE '59 DROP TOP, BEAUTIFUL RESTO, EXCEPTIONAL EVERYWHERE, INVESTMENT GRADE!
Take a long look at this stunning classic droptop. Rarely do you see the exceptionally unique 1959 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 convertible come up for sale. It's from the time when Oldsmobile was in charge of its own style, and this is arguably their most fashionable year. This stunning beauty is fresh from a high-end south Florida collection and is in incredible condition. So when you can find a stunning example of a true cruising machine, you know you have to act quickly.
You already know you don't see too many of these, and the reason why is Oldsmobile produced less than 8,500 Dynamic 88 convertible for '59. And far fewer remain in this kind of condition today. Olds made big changes in the styling for this year. Up front 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. The hood is as long as the horizon – with a rocket ornament on each fenders and a bright full-length trail that stretches all the way to the tailfins. In fact, those bold trim pieces are the perfect kickoff for the two-tone that, in profile, almost makes the black look like the rocket's vapor trails on this red. In total, the paint has a terrific appearance thanks to an investment in modern colors and a professional hand applying it. That even shine is the prefect complement to all that chrome.
The new black roof makes this Olds look amazing with the top up, but really we know convertibles like this were made to be open to the world. That's why with the touch of a button, the electric top reveals a nicely coordinated interior. The red and black two-tone on the outside so nicely matches the inside on the fresh seats carpeting, door panels, and dash. It's the kind of car everyone wants to go for a ride in, which is fine because the front split bench gives way to a roomy back seat in this large droptop. But the driver is the one who gets to enjoy this Olds the most. The stylized two-spoke steering wheel gives you a commanding view of the whole road as well as the extra long speedometer. 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 you get to experience this bright dash in all its glory.
A big cruising convertible needs a big motor, and that's why it carries the Dynamic 88's correct 371 cubic-inch V8. There's just something about the golden blocks of the Olds family that makes them feel extra special, so to have it so well presented means you will be showing it off with pride. In fact, this one feels authentic right down to the details like the script on the air cleaner and the Rochester two-barrel carburetor. Thanks to their durable construction, Oldsmobile engines of this vintage are known for their reliability and longevity. But more than just sturdiness, there's plenty of performance lying within the engine bay. So the Rocket V8 has the right power and plenty of torque to carry this convertible with ease. It floats down the road like a true luxury classic should, and driving is effortless thanks to power steering, a four-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, and the grip of a modern tread disguised on classic whitewall tires with stylized factory hubcaps.
There have been all the right investments to make sure this is an exceptionally well-presented convertible. But more than that, 1959 was a unique style. So if you don't act quickly, you might never see a rare Olds this great again. Call now!!!
