This 1968 Olds 98 is large, it is lovely, and it is a 455 powered battleship on wheels that has to be the biggest car for sale on the internet right now. Just feast your eyes on all of the pea soup green paint on this car, the interior that has plastic coverings someone’s grand parent may have installed, and a hood that you could land a helicopter on. The big cars of the late 1960s, the ones that ran into the 1970s and somehow got even bigger are both a parody of themselves and totally awesome exercises in styling. Are we crazy for saying that? We don’t think so. To make something this huge look good. To make it have proportions and lines like this car does takes a lot of work. Mistakes are magnified on a car that is 20+ feet long. Just follow the line that starts at the top of the front fender and ends at the taillight!
The roof seems to be a little tall on the car but thing being a luxury sedan we’re thinking that the objective here was to give the passengers the maximum amount of room in every direction and that includes up.
We cannot get over the size of the hood and the size of the trunk lid. Coming across the scales at a hefty 4,700lbs this car has a 126-inch wheelbase, and a 365hp 455ci engine under the hood. This was one of five body styles available under the 98 banner for 1968. Oh, and about the design? Yeah, some guy named Bill Mitchell did it. Was he famous?
