1959 Oldsmobile Ninety Eight – video walkaround

This 1959 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight 2-door Holiday Hardtop really captures the period in its Polaris White and Bronze Mist paint. Powered by a Rocket 394 cubic inch V8 with Quadri-Jet carburetor and Jetaway Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. The interior matches perfectly too with the original factory Fawn and Beige instrument panel and Dark Fawn carpet.

Power brakes and power steering (called Roto-Matic by Oldsmobile) were standard on Ninety-Eight's as well as the unique wheelbase at 126.3 inches. This car also features a 6-way powered front bench seat moving it; up, down, backwards, forwards and tilting in either direction.

Base price for the 1959 Ninety-Eight Oldsmobile Holiday Hardtops was $4086 and 13,699 were produced for that model year.

Check out that rear - it is really something quite special. Note too the hidden gas filler in the center of the rear bumper.
