Since starting this website, we’ve grown to love the lines of General Motor’s late forties fastback styling. Harley Earl’s influence on making these cars look like they are at speed when standing still is something to appreciate. Updating this classic design with a modern power train and comfort and convenience items provides the best of both old and new. That’s what the builder and seller of this 1948 Oldsmobile Dynamic 66 Fastback first listed on Craigslist in September 2020 in Mentor, Ohio created. Based on the pictures provided, this appears to be a nice driver-quality build with a lot offered for $25,000.
Here’s the seller’s description:
“For sale 1948 Oldsmobile 66. Custom. TPI SBC, 700R4, IROC Posi rear end. Fat Man Mustang II cross member, Air Rid Technologies bags on front, larger air tank. Cut coils and factory trailing arms on rear. Steel rims with spider caps and Diamondback wide whites. Portage trim interior, garnish moldings painted in House of Color Krazy Krome. GM tilt and telescopic column with 67 Caddillac steering wheel. Blue Tooth stereo with amp and sub. Vintage Air/heat. Classic interments gauges. Seat belts in the back for kids. Aluminum save-a- space spare. Solid car with several body mods. 53 Buick heads lights, grille surround and hood modified, headlights re-located. Bumpers are 46 Cadillac shaved and narrowed. Studebaker tail lights. Paint is 3 stage Dupont Hot Hues Moonlight Violet, in the sun it is blueish and in the dark, it is almost black. The vehicle drives great and would not hesitate to drive anywhere. I have had this car since the late ’90s and it has never let me down except for a dead battery last year. With the overdrive, it will cruise at 70 around 1800 rpm. This is wired with the factory IROC computer/harness and I believe a painless harness with a digital converter for the speedo. This car is a nice looking driver, not a show car. It is not perfect but looks very nice. May trade for a 59 Elcamino, 57 Nomad, or any steel coupe roadster 1932-4.
I am selling this because the kids are gone and I just don’t use it anymore, I have several other cars I need to drive.”
