1961 Oldsmobile Starfire convertible Reserved Parking Only Sign


1961 Oldsmobile Starfire convertible Aluminum Parking Sign

With the Jet-Age in full swing, Oldsmobile introduced the convertible Starfire in mid-1961, successfully combining style, luxury, and high-performance into an elegant package. Its name was shared with the preeminent American jet fighter of the era, and it was built to compete with the Ford Thunderbird that was dominating the personal luxury sports car market. It shared its platform with the 88 (well, it was actually one to five inches shorter overall with a fractionally smaller wheelbase) but with the more powerful 394 cubic-inch Rocket V8 engine. The grille was from the 98. Distinguishable features included the full-length brushed aluminum side-sweep that would become the car's visual signature. Other features included the chrome-plated oil filler cap, air cleaner, and valve covers. Standard items on the Starfire included power front bucket seats, a dual exhaust system, leather interior, Hydra-Matic transmission, limited-slip differential, power windows, power brakes, power steering, trunk release, antenna, and console-mounted tachometer. The interior was finished in leather. Priced at $4,650, it was the most expensive Oldsmobile for 1961 and 7,800 examples were produced. Sales of the 1961 Thunderbird were much greater, with 73,051 examples built. Thunderbird included a Landau Hardtop, Hardtop Coupe, and convertible. Comparing just the convertibles, the Starfire and Thunderbird sales were similar, with 10,516 Thunderbird Convertibles sold.
