Oldsmobile History

1959 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88

Share on:

1959 was the last year of the big Horsepower for Oldsmobile until the muscle car era would arrive, it was also the last time Oldsmobile won the Daytona 500, with Richard Petty at the wheel of his 1959 Olds Dynamic 88 Hardtop he won by only a fender length. The 371 Cubic Inch Motor was known for it's big horsepower and even bigger torque.

The Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 for 1959 had fins that started atop the front fenders and rose as they went to the back in rocket-shaped appendages. The Oldsmobile designers called it the 'Linear Look' and was an extreme departure shape from its highly chromed 1958 predecessor.

Oldsmobile had three series for 1959, the Dynamic 88, the high-performance Super 88, and the ultra-luxury Ninety-Eight. The two-door hardtop was named the 'Holiday SceniCoupe.'

This Dynamic 88 is powered by the standard 371 cubic-inch 'Rocket' V8 engine and fitted with an optional four-speed 'Jetaway' Hydra-Matic transmission and optional two-tone paint. It was sold new by Dick Smith Oldsmobile of Melbourne Florida on April 21st of 1959. The current owner purchased the car from the original owner's family in 1984.
