Go cruise Main Street and make some classy memories.

Not every American car in the 1960s was about smoking the back tires and racing for pinks. Some were geared more towards comfort and looking amazing while cruising through town. This 1962 Oldsmobile 98 Holiday Coupe is definitely of the latter type. While it’s not something you’re going to use on the track, it goes great in any classic cruise, show, or wherever you want to drive.

With 76,749 miles on it, there’s no wonder this Oldsmobile 98 Holiday Coupe looks amazing inside and out. Apparently, it was a California car, so this ride wasn’t exposed to the harsh elements and rust-inducing road salt you get in other parts of the country. Thanks to a single repaint in the original Sunset Mist, it is definitely in the kind of condition you want to make a great impression.

This car hasn’t been modified in the least, including the charming Fawn interior. A light cosmetic restoration returned the different elements to their original glory, so everything shines and works properly. Straight out of the factory, this Olds came with all kinds of luxuries for its time. There’s air conditioning, power locks, power seats, power steering, power brakes, and power windows. The Autronic Eye sits atop the dash, a precursor to modern automatic high beams. All the lights work properly, including the courtesy lights.

While you’re not going to race this 98 Holiday Coupe, it’s not a gutless wonder. A 394ci Skyrocket Ultra High Compression V8 will get you up to highway speeds in a hurry and without struggling. The automatic transmission is smooth and simple to use as well.

As the full-size flagship car for Oldsmobile, the 98 Holiday was the car everyone lusted after during its run from 1941 to 1996.  The second production year of the seventh generation, the 1962 Oldsmobile 98 Holiday Coupe was popular, but few have survived into this century. That makes this car rare and collectible, making for a great addition to your collection. This Olds comes via Classic Car Investments.
