The largest 1962 Oldsmobiles were again the Ninety-Eights. Five
body styles were offered including three 4-doors plus an open and a
closed 2-door. The Holiday Coupe was renamed the Holiday Sport
Coupe, and the Sport Sedan was renamed the Holiday Sport Sedan, so

including padded dash, guard beam frame, live rubber body cushions,
coil springs, foam rubber seats, two-speed windshield wipers,
parking brake lights, courtesy lamp package, special moldings, Roto
Hydramatic, power brakes, power steering, power windows and power
seat. Interiors were leather, vinyl or cloth. Standard tire size
was 8.50 x 14 inches.

The front fender edges jutted ahead of the grille, and the entire
fascia was surrounded with a bright metal molding.
On the sides the previous bright metal strip still ran front to

At the rear, the four oval tail lights were placed at the outer

"Ninety-Eight" in script was placed in the upper right corner of
the trunk edge. The rear bumper became massive and contained the
