1955 Oldsmobile

In the 1950s, Oldsmobile refined its winning strategy by providing more of everything more power, more luxury, and more style for the American automobile buyer. In turn, Oldsmobile moved up to fourth place in sales for 1955. In large part, Oldsmobile's remarkable success was due to its modern and stylish Holiday two- and four-door hardtop models. However, its stylish 98 Starfire Convertible formed a growing part of Oldsmobile's model range as well.

For 1955, the entire Oldsmobile line continued with the strong "X-member" frame design that was introduced in 1954. The larger 98 series utilized a 126-inch wheelbase, a full four inches longer than that of the 88 models. In addition, the Super 88 and 98 lines shared the top Oldsmobile "Rocket" V8 engine, with 324 cubic inch displacement and a robust 202 horsepower. Oldsmobile's growing performance reputation was aided by drivers Dick Rathmann and Jim Pascal of the Wood Racing Team.

While the entire Oldsmobile line offered many standard features not available on other makes, the 98 series raised the bar even higher, with the inclusion of the Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, a padded dash, an electric clock, power steering, windshield washers, Deluxe steering wheels, courtesy lights and back-up lights. The handsome 98 Starfire Convertible was the top Oldsmobile model for 1955, adding an air of exclusivity and open-air styling to an already dashing and technically advanced automobile.
