  • The 1961 model year brought significant changes to the Oldsmobile product line. For the first time, there was a compact car, the F-85, in the catalog. The “big Olds” models, Dynamic Eighty-Eight, Super Eighty-Eight, and Ninety-Eight, were continued but significantly redesigned. Underneath new, up-to-date sheet metal lurked a new perimeter-type chassis frame.

    The rear suspension replaced 1960’s semi-elliptical leaf springs with a trailing-arm coil-spring arrangement. While Olds’s Rocket V-8 still owed much to its revolutionary 1949 forebear, for 1961, it had grown to 394 cubic inches and developed 325 brake horsepower, thanks to 10:1 compression and a Rochester four-barrel carb. The earlier four-speed Hydra-Matic, had given way to a new three-speed Roto Hydra-Matic, which featured a torque converter in place of the old fluid coupling.

    Despite having the same wheelbase, the 1961 Super Eighty-Eights were smaller than the ’60s, some five inches in length and three inches in width, making them significantly more maneuverable. Visibility improved, too, such that the driver could see all four corners of the car and thus could park more easily, while the elimination of the windshield’s “wrap-around” made entry and exit much easier.

    The 1961 Oldsmobile Super 88 Convertible featured here is finished in stunning Provincial White with a gorgeous red interior and white convertible top. This magnificent American classic has only been driven 38,224 miles from new and is among one of the finest examples you’ll find on the market today. It is highly optioned with Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, a Deluxe heater, Deluxe radio, back-up lights, windshield washers, an electric clock, a tilt mirror, white sidewall tires, and undercoating. This 1961 Oldsmobile Super 88 Convertible is well documented with its original sales agreement and owner's manual. We are proud to offer this extraordinary 1961 Oldsmobile Super 88 Convertible to the most demanding collector, investor, or enthusiast who only wants the best.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
