This 1968 Olds 98 Has To Be The Biggest Car For Sale On The Internet Right Now

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?

    When I got my license in 1969 my parents had a 63 Polaris station wagon (oh, to have that one back) and a 66 Olds 98. Not only were the 98s 20 feet long, they quickly became 20 feet wide when you spun out on an icy road. . . just sayin’.

    Part of me wants this to use when its my turn to drive when carpooling on the 405 just to see the horrid look on prius drivers faces as I take the space of 2 modern cars

    A high school buddy’s dad had one of these. Same year I think. They had a quirky speedo that was driven off the front wheels. That thing was big, even by the standards of the day. We routinely packed 8 or 9 of us in it. Comfortably. We never really tested it, but the consensus was we could put another 4 or 5 in the trunk without permanently damaging any friendships. With the 455 and an open diff, that thing could do a burnout like nobody’s business. Get the right rear spinning, and let it get right into high gear while you were still barely moving, and you could kill all the mosquitoes for a hundred yards around.
