Vehicle Specs


This 1963 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 convertible was one of the quickest full-sized cars you could buy in 1963. And as always, they remained powerful, comfortable full-sized cruisers with respectable performance and a ton of amenities, making this affordable Olds ragtop a great bang for the buck both then and now.

There are no replacement panels for these cars, so everything you see is 100% OEM steel that has survived the last 56 years rather nicely. The color is called Holiday Red, and is a wonderful, subtle color that looks exactly right on the big Olds' clean body. We'd say it's an older repaint that does a credible job of looking factory-applied but shows signs of age in some areas. Chrome is still in nice shape, as is the simple grille with horizontal bars. The split taillights blend into the stubby tail fins and are the origin of an Oldsmobile styling trend that lasted more than two decades. And you'll definitely dig the stylized rocket on the trunk, Oldsmobile's symbol up to the very end.

There's not a lot of flash in the interior, but it is stylish and comfortable and entirely appropriate to early '60s buyer tastes. The seats wear two-tone burgundy, and the front bench features split backs to allow easy access to the surprisingly spacious back seat area. The carpet looks like it might be original, attesting to the overall quality of this clean car. Spanning the entire width of the car, the dashboard houses a wide speedometer housing and simple knobs for things like the headlights and windshield wipers, and a slender gear shift lever hangs from the steering column. The original radio is still in the dash. Overhead there's a nice-fitting white power convertible top and it includes a boot for a clean top-down look. And as an Oldsmobile, you already know there's a giant trunk out back, complete with full-sized spare tire and jack assembly. Please not that there is an area on the dash towards the passenger side that is cracked.

The standard engine in Dynamic 88s was a 394 cubic inch V8 making 280 horsepower and a stump-pulling 430 pounds of torque. Nicknamed the Rocket, which is proudly spelled out on the air cleaner, it makes this Dynamic 88 a lively performer. Other than routine maintenance items, however, it remains completely stock and original. Key it up, and it fires with that characteristic Oldsmobile sound, breathing through stock exhaust manifolds into a single exhaust system that has just the right wound. The rest of the chassis is clean and dry, and the automatic transmission works as it should. It rides on a set of steel wheels with stock hubcaps and a new set of whitewall radials.

The timeless styling is less common than an Impala, and the sophisticated color gives it a grown-up look that a lot of cars these days are missing. And with all that room, taking your family and friends with you is a pleasure. Fans of the rocket, this is one you shouldn't overlook. Call now!
