Description

QUALITY, RARE, 394 V8, AUTO, PWR STEER/BRAKES/WINDOWS, GREAT INT/PAINT, DOCS, A+

Take a long look at this stunning silver classic. Rarely do you see the exceptionally unique 1959 Oldsmobile 98 Holiday SceniCoupe come up for sale. It's from the time when Oldsmobile was in charge of their own style, and this is arguably their most fashionable year. So when you can find a stunning example, you know you have to act quickly.

Oldsmobile made big changes in 1959. They claimed that this car had 40% more glass than the previous year, and we can believe them. The bubble top design, huge pillarless middle section, and sloping rear makes this look like a true 1950s dream car made into a reality. Of course all this glass was also helped by the top-of-the-line 98 model's longer wheelbase, too. But the appeal of this coupe is much more than just the roof. 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. It's everything you want from a forward-looking time in our history, right down to the turbine-style hubcaps. And the reason why it all looks so stellar is careful ownership, and a heavily invested restoration that makes the Silver Mist paint shine like precious metal.

But don't just be stunned by the outside...open the door, too. The interior represents a great era in color, and the seats show this best. There's pristine white vinyl for presentation, silver vinyl strips to nicely coordinate with the exterior color, and a comfortable gray cloth insert where you actually sit. It's the kind of thoughtful design that comes from an era when artists were working on interiors. This trio of colors coordinates nicely with the dash, side panels, carpeting, and headliner for a true uniform appearance. 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 full size hardtop. The stylized two-spoke steering wheel gives you a commanding view of the whole road as well as the extra long speedometer. And all of the components are in place, so you get to experience this bright dash in all its glory. We bet you noticed the power window switches by now. So you know how cool it will be to hop in and roll down all the side glass in this hardtop without ever having to leave the driver's seat.

A big coupe needs a big motor, and that's why it carries a correct 394 cubic-inch V8. 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 this very honest engine bay. Oldsmobile's top motor came with a four-barrel carburetor straight from the factory, and they rated it at 315 horsepower. So the Rocket V8 has the kind of stump-pulling power to carry this coupe with ease. 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 coupe, and so the driving experience is meant to be an easy one. That's why it comes with features like the Hydramatic four-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes.

This coupe is of a higher caliber, and it has paperwork to prove it – everything from maintenance records, to manuals, to even dealer materials come with the sale. But really all you have to do is look at the awards it has already won, and you understand the level of quality presented here. 1959 was a unique style, so if you don't act quickly, you might never see an Olds this great again.
