The final redesigned generation of the Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight coincided
with its 50th anniversary in 1991. The added length, rear fender skirts,
wide tail, low nose, and split-grille with wraparound headlights gave this
generation Ninety-Eight a far more distinctive appearance than its
predecessor. Designers of the Ninety-Eight wanted to create a distinctive
luxury car look that buyers would not confuse with a similar Buick or
Pontiac sedan. The final generation of the Ninety-Eight would also
prove to be the shortest, seeing its last year in 1996.
Although wheelbase was unchanged from the previous generation, overall
length increased by over 9 inches (229 mm). Most of this extra space
was added to the rear of the car, resulting in a larger trunk. Although
throughout the model years names of the trim levels changed, the final
generation Ninety-Eight was available in two main models: the traditional
luxury-oriented Regency models and the performance-oriented Touring models.
Regency models included 6-passenger seating in either velour or leather,
column shifter, and the 170 horsepower (130 kW) 3.8 L
Buick V6. Touring models featured the FE3 suspension package, a 205 hp
(upped to 225 hp in 1994) supercharged version of the standard 3.8 L Buick
V6, 18 gallon fuel tank, 16-inch wheels, and standard 5-passenger leather
seating designed by Lear Seating.
With the introduction of the Aurora a year earlier, the Ninety-Eight was
discontinued for 1996, ending production on May 31. To fill the void,
two Eighty-Eight relatives -- the Regency and the LSS -- were introduced.
The sporty LSS featured the steel front fenders, while the more stately and
traditional Regency 88's had the carryover GTX-composite (plastic) fenders
from the 1996 Ninety Eight. The LSS model proved more popular to buyers
than the Regency during the 1997-98 model years.
1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Town Sedan Blk NSmyr081112
In 1957, it was really a battle between Chevy and Ford for the most
sales...and for once, Ford won! That was disputed, of course, and I can't
say officially who was the winner (it may have amounted to counting rental
car sales) but Ford definitely had an outstanding product. There were FOUR
trim levels..Custom, Custom 300, Fairlane and Fairlane 500. There
additionally were THREE wagon trims..Ranch, Country Sedan and Country
Squire, plus, of course the conventional Sunliner convertible and the new
Skyliner retractable hardtop convertible! What an amazing variety of
choices! And each one had "Thunderbird" style!
