I agree, the Olds 88 was the first V8 Muscle Car.
Pontiac claims the title because in 1964 they took the engine from larger models and put it in the smaller Tempest body.

Call me crazy but that’s exactly what Oldsmobile did in 1949 when they took the same engine from the chunky Olds 98 and put it in the smaller Olds 88 body.

Incidentally, if you look at the single front engine mount on the early Olds V8 it lined up with Chevy and Pontiacs of the same vintage, making for a super easy engine swap.
