If you bought a Ninety-Eight in the late sixties you were buying a luxury car that rivaled the Buick Electra, Chrysler New Yorker or Cadillac's Calais and deVille.
This 1968 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Convertible was one of 5 models in the Ninety-Eight Series.
Clearly this car well looked after and has just over 59,000 original miles on the odometer and near showroom quality interior.
With a wheelbase of 126 inches, this luxury car sat at just over eighteen and a half feet long.
The luxurious interior is all vinyl with rectangular stitched puffy panels on the doors and the dash features a walnut-grained appliqué.
Under the hood there is a 455 cubic inch "Rocket" V8 engine that outputs 365 horsepower. This is connected to a Turbo Hydra-Matic 400 automatic transmission. Both were standard on the 98.
Power brakes and power steering were also standard as are the power windows and front seat. The AM/FM stereo in this car was an option costing $238.
Oldsmobile produced 3,942 Ninety-Eight convertibles for the 1968 model year so it is a relatively rare beast now. Base price was $4,418 and was the most expensive full-size Oldsmobile that year.
This Oldsmobile 98 is currently for sale on eBay. (follow the link for even more photos)
