The Oldsmobile 98 was the flagship model of the Oldsmobile marque for over fifty years. The full size luxury car, being the top line Oldsmobile car from 1940 to 1996, always boasted the latest technological advances, such as automatic headlight dimmers, twilight sentinels, autronic eyes, and hydramatic automatic transmission. The long running series grew and evolved throughout the years, adapting to the time period in order to always remain refreshing and modern.
The first generation of the Oldsmobile 98 was released in 1941, available as a two door coupe, a four door sedan, and two and four door convertibles. The 98 had a characteristic forties look, with its bulky front and round edges, an aesthetic kept up during the model’s second generation released one year later. It wasn’t until the release of the third generation in 1948 that the Oldsmobile 98 evolved, this time towards the slicker, slimmer, lower look of the incoming fifties. The bright colored convertibles of this line soon became classics, playing a part in defining the decade’s automobile aesthetic.
The Oldsmobile 98 continued to change and adapt throughout its subsequent generations, all the way to its twelfth one in 1991, which saw a very low key and humble nineties design. The line would cease production in 1996, leaving behind an undeniably remarkable legacy. The 98 helped define half a century of automobile design.
