The Oldsmobile 98 (formerly Series 90 Custom Cruiser) was a full-size automobile sold by the Oldsmobile division of General Motors in the United States. The name first appeared in 1941 and was used again after American consumer automobile production resumed post-World War II. It was, as it would remain, the top-of-the-line model, with lesser Oldsmobiles having lower numbers such as 66 and 76. These were replaced by the Oldsmobile 88 in 1949, and the two number-names would carry on into the 1990s as the bread and butter of the full-size Oldsmobile lineup until the Aurora would replace it for 1996.

1965

The 1965 Ninety-Eight received an all-new bodyshell along with other full-sized Oldsmobiles but retained a larger C-body shared with Cadillac in contrast with the B-body used in the Oldsmobile 88. The Ninety-Eight featured many of the lines found on 88s but with more squared off styling. Also new for 1965 was the Ninety-Eight Luxury Sedan, which featured an even more luxurious interior along with more standard amenities than the regular Ninety-Eight models such as power windows and seats. Most 98 LS's also had vinyl roofs, which were offered only in black that year. A new three-speed Turbo Hydra-Matic transmission with torque converter replaced the original Hydra-Matic used by Olds since its 1940 introduction. Along with the transmission and bodyshell, the engine was also new for 1965. It was a 425 cubic-inch Super Rocket V8 that was more powerful and of a more efficient design than the older 394 cubic-inch V8 previously used, yet it was much lighter in weight. The Ninety-Eight's standard and only engine offering for 1965 was the four-barrel "Ultra High Compression" version of the 425 Super Rocket rated at 360 horsepower.

The 1971 through 1976 Ninety-Eight was very similar to the Oldsmobile 88 (which by now was called the "Delta 88") with rear Cadillac-esque tailfins to differentiate between both full-size models. The standard 455 cubic-inch Rocket V8 was rated at 340 horsepower and designed to run on lower octane regular leaded, low-lead or unleaded gasoline for the first time this year thanks to a General Motors-mandate that all engines be designed to run on such fuels in preparation for the catalytic converter equipped cars of 1975 and later years that absolutely required unleaded gasoline.

The 1977 model was extensively redone and downsized, at the same time as the Oldsmobile 88. The new models were several hundred pounds lighter than a comparable 1976 model, but were just as roomy inside. The 455 in³ engine was replaced by the smaller 403 in³ V8. The Olds 350 was also available, both in gasoline and diesel versions. The 98 was given a facelift in 1980; it now offered Oldsmobile's new 307 in³ V8 along with the diesel.

This final redesigned generation of the Ninety-Eight would prove to be the shortest, seeing its last year in 1996. Although not manufactured in over nine years, many of the these cars remain on the road in good condition. A higher performance version, the 98 Touring Sedan was available that included the FE3 suspension package, supercharger, 18 gallon tank, and seats designed by Lear Seating. With the Aurora being introduced a year earlier, and the Eighty-Eight around, the Ninety-Eight was discontinued for 1996, making room for 2 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight relatives -- the Regency and the LSS. However, drivers of the 98 did not accept the Regency 88 as a replacement, and many opted for the Buick Park Avenue as the only suitable alternative. The flagship Oldsmobile belonged to the Aurora in 1997, as what would be considered the 98's successor. This generation of Ninety-Eights can easily be distinguished by the rear fenderskirts.
