1966 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Convertible

This Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Convertible from 1966 has all the right ingredients. A big sixties convertible cruiser that is loads of fun, a barn find with just 13,533 documented miles and one of just 4,568 made.

The Ninety-Eight was Oldsmobile’s top-of-the-line model and had been for many years. Buyers wanting luxury now had the Starfire and Toronado to choose from but if you wanted full-size then the Ninety-Eight was the way to go.

The body on this Lucerne Mist beauty are laser straight and all-original.

While the sedans and hardtops had cloth and vinyl seating the convertible enjoys an all-vinyl interior as standard.


As you’d expect from a luxury car there is power steering, brakes, windows and seats – all standard on the Ninety-Eight. As a convertible this car also enjoys a power top. Plus, let’s not forget the electric clock proudly declared as standard equipment in the original brochure.
