In 1960, once again the top of the line Oldsmobile series was the 98. Standard equipment includes Safety-vee steering wheel, turn signals, air scoop brakes, electric windshield wipers, safety-spectrum speedometer, carpets with rubber inserts, padded dash, courtesy lamps, wheel trim rings, Star-lite headliner, two-speed windshield wipers, chrome roof side moldings, Jetaway Hydramatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, electric clock, and deep twist carpeting. Upholstery was fabric, leather, or Moroceen in a variety of colors. Tire size was 9.00 (229) by 14 inches (356 Millimeters). An anti-spin rear axle was optional.

The 1960 model year brought more changes to the bodywork than anything else. Like other cars, the rakish tail fins were flattened out to the sides in this year. But overall body style, engine and drivetrain options remained the same. The Olds 98 convertible was selected as the pace car for the Indianapolis 500 in this year. Power was provided by a 394-cid Rocket V-8 at 315 hp and a whopping 435 lb-ft of torque.

Collectors should seek out the two-door hardtops and convertibles for best value. Some rare options for both years include air conditioning (installed on just 16 percent of cars), dual exhaust (4 percent), limited-slip differential (5 percent) and the rarest option is air suspension (0.5 percent). As with most cars of this era, condition counts for much more than any given option package.
