1959 Oldsmobile 98 Apparel and Accessories by Legend Lines
The top-of-the-line Ninety-Eight was resting on an exclusive 126.3-inch wheelbase platform and offered in four body styles. It was offered as a convertible, sedan, and 2- and 4-door Holiday Hardtops. Prices ranged from $3,890 for the sedan and rose to over $4,360 for the convertible. The Olds Ninety-Eight was very well equipped and included all the standard items found on the other two models, plus an electric clock, additional chrome trim and moldings, power brakes, a Jetaway Hydra-Matic transmission, power steering, and 9.00 x 14-inch tires, power seat, power windows, Wonderbar radio, and power antenna. It shared its 394 cubic-inch V8 engine with the Super 88. For 1959, visibility improved thanks to a new vista-Panoramic windshield. The interiors were restyled with the most notable change being the Safety Spectrum Speedometer. Styling features of the 1959 Oldsmobile Ninety Eight include the fins that started atop the front fenders, traversing the body side, and culminating in rocket-shaped appendages at the rear. The overall appearance was much cleaner than its highly chromed 1958 predecessor.
