1961 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight Dynamic Additional Info:

Very original vehicle that runs well. Low miles believed to be original. Original 394-cubic-inch Rocket V8 engine with two-barrel carburetor. Original Roto Hydramatic "Slim Jim" automatic transmission. Vehicle was re-sprayed black a few years ago and shines up quite well with no dings, dents, scratches or bubbling. Origina, solid floors, frame, trunk. Factory power steering. Original 2-tone blue interior which has typical age related discoloration and fading. As shown in pictures, lower half of passenger door interior panel has been re-covered, lower edge of driver's door panel showing wear, and top of rear seatback is showing its age. Medium blue low-pile automotive carpet installed shortly after I bought car 18 yrs ago. Heater core replaced and works very well. Carburetor recently tuned. Vehicle is inspected, insured and can be road tested. Engine runs strong and smooth, uses little to no oil between changes. There is some weeping at rear axle seal. I just top it up every Spring. Hydraulic automatic top goes up and down without any issues. Top has no tears and rear window is clear. I've never driven the vehicle in road salt. From condition of the body and undercarriage, it does not appear to have seen winter use. Battery charges but, at lower speeds, dash charge light will glow. Likely needs a new generator. Equipped with an aftermarket in-dash AM/FM Cassette stereo with 2 speakers under dash. No cutting was performed during installation and I have the factory dash plate that goes over the area where radio was installed. Also have the original factory boot that snaps over top when it is down, same color as interior. Overall, a 56 year old vehicle, from Detroit's Golden Age, that runs and looks very good. Comes with some spare parts and service receipts. A great car in which to enjoy top down motoring. Presently not a show vehicle but a great classic car that runs well, gets alot of attention and can be enjoyed for many years to come.
