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.

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.
Under the hood sits the 425 cubic inch Super Rocket V8 that outputs 365 horsepower. This is paired with a Turbo-Hydramatic automatic transmission again, both are standard on these beautiful cars.
If you wanted an Eighty-Eight convertible during the 1966 model year they were priced at $4,443 – they were the most expensive full-size Oldsmobile available.
