1960 Oldsmobile dynamic 88. This mostly original Olds was in storage for 10 years before I bought it 1 1/2 years ago. Original 373. Things I’ve done to it: rebuilt trans, new generator, rebuilt brake booster and new master cylinder, rear driver side wheel bearing, gas tank has been redone and added electric fuel pump. Runs and drives and stops good. Headliner is perfect but seat backs need to be redone. This car is a serious head turner!! Asking $13,500 call (760) six zero eight 4 four 6 one. Clean title, good tags.

Exact same year and model that I learned to drive on. This car looks better with the windows down revealing no "B" pillar. Great driving car. I remember the speedometer changes colors from green to yellow to red as speed increases. Surprised to see rust on this black plate car in Apple Valley (high desert).

I like the 1960 Oldsmobiles, including their unusual taillights.

 

The 1960 Oldsmobile is one of my favorite GM designs for 1960.  Whether you view the Celebrity or Holiday Hardtop offerings, the rooflines are attractive either way, IMO.  

 

I would be happy to have one of these in my garage!

I really like this car. This year and model was the passed on to me from my mom. Great driving car, really a smooth ride and very comfortable. The only thing that I did not like (minor) is that Olds did a spray on foam headliner for '59 and '60, did not look good. I prefer this car over the '59 that is listed due to the roof line. The '60 is a no post hard top, which to me looks a lot cleaner than the roofline on the silver '59. You can change the color of a car, but that roofline tailing off to the trunk does not look right IMO. Olds called the window treatment scenic, I believe.
