Oldsmobile unveiled an all-new top-of-the-line 98 in 1961. The car was slightly smaller than the earlier generation of 98, and ushered in new styling for a new decade. The only fins were now downward-pointing at the rear, while the side panels were deeply scalloped. The grille was cut back sharply from the leading edge of the hood and the name Oldsmobile stretched between the headlights, above the bumper. Mechanically, the frame was redesigned, the Hydra-Matic transmission was improved, and both the rear seat and trunk were larger despite the car’s smaller proportions. For 1961 only, the car was officially known as the “Classic 98.”
Olds 98 models included two- and four-door Holiday Hardtops, a four-door Town Sedan, a four-door Sport Sedan with a wraparound rear window, and a convertible. A single 325-hp, 394-cid V-8 engine was available, and it was mated to a four-speed Hydra-Matic transmission. Total sales for the 98 in 1961 were more than 40,000.
The same five Oldsmobile 98 models were offered for 1962 and the body was even more conservative, with a looped grille in front, a curved side-scallop with a big trim patch at the front of the driver’s door and no fins at the rear. Sales jumped by 50% to nearly 65,000 Oldsmobile 98s
