Boldly introduced in 1966 as a new, one-of-a-kind car; Oldsmobile started from scratch on the engineering of this respected platform as it was designed as an entirely different type of car from the ground up. It was unlike any other car on the road when introduced – in looks, performance and engineering advancements. It still has a standalone style that makes it as recognizable now as it was nearly 50 years ago. It is a beautiful and historically significant car that was the first front-wheel drive automobile produced in the U.S.A. since the 1937 Cord, and won many awards, including the prestigious Motor Trend 1966 "Car of the Year".
