1960 Olds

Postby Tristan5 on Wed Jan 28, 2009 6:00 pm

I am new to the forum and have a question that might seem silly to those that know their Olds:

"What is the difference between the 1960 Olds 88 and 98"?
For example: is the body the same but the 98 is fitted with a larger engine than the 88?

Not silly...unless you've been around a bunch of them the differences might not seem obvious. This might help:
http://www.1960oldsmobile.com/tech/model_guide.html

There's a lot of minor differences between the Dynamic 88, Super 88 and 98...mostly in the levels of trim. The 98 is about 4" longer than the 88 models...gives the rear passengers some more leg room.
There was a discussion here recently about how to tell the differences...I'll see if I can find it.
Cheers,
Scott

Thanks Scott.
Does anybody know which Olds was driven by Mike Shyne (Richard Denning) in the 1960 TV series of the same name?

Some of the differences between the 98 and 88's:
WHEELBASE 98 weelbase is 126.3 inches and overall lenght is 220.9 inches for ALL bodies (convertible, coupe, holiday and celebrity sedan)
88's weelbase is 123 inches and overall length is 217.6 inches for all bodies too. The Fiesta (wagon) is not longer than the other model.

EQUIPMENT On 98 jetaway transmission is standard as power steering, power brakes, 2 ways electric fore and aft front seat adjuster (4 and 6 ways optional), electric 4 window lifts (but for the post sedan: optional),glove compartment lamp, windshield washer, electric clock, rear seat center harm rest on holiday sport sedan (not available on other body but for the post sedan at extra cost), larger sun visors, special deep twist carpeting, bright aluminium front seat-back side panels (like Cadillac but Cadillac ones were in heavier chromed metal, not alu.), more luxurious interior (a bit of leather on seats, larger and "luxury" ashtrays with 4 cigar lighters on coupe and 3 in the holiday sedan) and exterior appointment (extra aluminium mouldings on the body).

EXTERIORThe headlamp bezel were made in aluminium on the dynamic and super 88 but were made of chromed metal on 98. The rear aluminium panels aren't the same for 98 and 88's: on 98 there were more grooves with black paint. On 88's no black paint and less groove.
The lower rear panel is painted body color on 88's and fully chromed on 98.
Tail light bezels are the same for super 88 and 98, the dynamic ones were plain without an horizontal chromed bar.
Rocket emblem between headlamp for super 88 and 98, and numeral "88" for the dynamic.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
98 and super 88 equiped with 394 ci/315 hp 9.75 to 1 compression ratio (4 barrel carb) and 88 equiped with 371ci/240hp 8.75 to 1 comp. ratio (2 barrel carb) or 260hp optional.
trans is the same for 88, Super 88 and 98.
