For 1960, the Oldsmobile 98 model line was slightly restyled while keeping the underpinnings and rooflines from 1959. The 98 once again represented the top-of-the-line offering from Oldsmobile, and it was available in the same four body styles as the year prior. In keeping pace with other marques, the 98’s list of standard features grew. For 1960, the rarest 98 model was the Convertible, with just 7,284 examples produced.
This 1960 Oldsmobile 98 Convertible benefits from a previous restoration which earned it an AACA National First Prize award in 2014. The car is presented wearing its factory-correct Provincial White with a white top over a polychrome red interior. The car is powered by Oldsmobile’s legendary 394-cubic-inch “Rocket” V-8 engine, which is paired with an automatic transmission. It is luxuriously equipped with power windows, seat, convertible top, steering, and brakes, and the beautiful tri-tone interior features a clock and period-correct Wonderbar radio—everything one could need to enjoy carefree, top-down drives in midcentury splendor.
