I have another car about to arrive so I'm setting the $9K start price as the reserve, with a Buy Now. So top bidder or Buy Now takes her home. If you've ever dreamed of owning a '61 GM bubble top car, you'll likely never find one at this price again.

1961 was the only year GM offered the amazing bubble top roof on its full-size cars for Chevrolet Impala, Pontiac Bonneville, Buick Invicta, and Oldsmobile Dynamic. This awesome roof styling was inspired by the late 1950s kustom car craze. The bubble top roof styling used ultra-slim A and C-pillars, with no B-pillars, which gave a kustom look right from the factory. The bubble top option was gone by 1962, with the exception of Chevrolet Impala, of which only a small number were produced.

These 1961 bubble top cars are now some of the most highly sought after American cars of the 1960s, and good examples fetch top dollar today.

This is a 1961 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 I imported from California recently. It’s a project car, but it has a solid body. It’s a factory 394 big block car, but the heads, intake and carb etc are gone. The pistons are locked in the block.

This car would be the perfect candidate for a mild custom, or restore. Fit a big block Chev, or LS, or if you prefer to go original, I might be able to source a replacement Oldsmobile Rocket.

Pretty much everything is intact, including the rare trim pieces, plus dash pieces etc and factory radio. The drivers floor pan will need patching or replacing. Passenger rear lower quarter has rust and minor damage. Elsewhere, a couple of pin holes here and there, plus small dents, dings etc. The soft parts have suffered from the California sun. Door cards etc are in the trunk but will need to be restored or replaced.

Many consider the Oldsmobile is the best looking of all the 1961 GM bubble top cars, and it definitely has the boldest styling. If you want to stand out from the crowd at car shows, this is your car. An awesome project with so much potential.
