1947 Olds Custom Cruiser - Ninety Series

Three body styles were again used in the top of the line Oldsmobile series. This was the final year the Ninety-Eight used a styling package which could be directly traced to the 1941 models. All Ninety-Eights were powered by the straight-eight motor. Standard Ninety-Eight equipment included the same items as the Special Series plus a solenoid starter system. Upholstery was done in either custom broadcloth or leather. Standard tire size was 7.00 x 15 inches.
