Model history

The 1948 Oldsmobile 98 was one of the first General Motors models to be fitted with a pontoon body. Equipped with a 4.2-liter inline eight-cylinder engine that produced 117 horsepower, it was known for its reliability and solid performance. The Model 98, first introduced in 1940, was Oldsmobile's top-of-the-range model and offered luxurious appointments and generous dimensions. In 1948, the vehicle was characterized by a striking design with flowing lines and a spacious interior. It was available as a saloon, coupé and convertible. The combination of elegant style and technical reliability made the Oldsmobile 98 a sought-after vehicle of its time.
