RealRides of WNY - 1970 Olds Ninety-Eight

This 1970 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Town Sedan is looking period-perfect with its Aspen Green paint job. Odds are the original owner had a fridge and stove to match Lol. The Ninety-Eight was Oldsmobile’s biggest car; as a matter of fact, it was one of the biggest non-limos made in North America. With an overall length of 225” it matched the Cadillac DeVille and Lincoln Continental, but was about four inches shorter than that year’s Imperial. Powering the Ninety-Eight was a 455CID, 365-hp V-8, hooked up to a Turbo Hydra-matic 400 transmission. And what were the interiors like? One choice was "A striking filigree pattern in lustrous Odessa cloth against contrasting accents of textured Fame cloth." Available color schemes were green, blue, gold, sandalwood, and black. Saw this one a few years ago in Lockport.
