The Dynamic 88 was a minimum cost Oldsmobile versus the more traditional Super 88 and Ninety-Eight lines. Weight was kept to a minimum and the standard 371 cid Oldsmobile V-8 was de-tuned to a gas-saving 265 hp. The economic recession in 1958 could not completely dampen the 1950’s love affair with the car, and enough buyers went for the stylish yet cost-conscious “Dynamic 88” two-door hardtop to put it firmly in second place on the Oldsmobile sales charts. The Dynamic 88 “Holiday” two-door hardtop sold a respectable 35,036 units, at just under $2,900 each (up about $500 from the low priced three).
