Originally named Series 90, the Oldsmobile 98 was first released in 1941. Being top-of-the-line Oldsmobile model of those days, the Ninety-Eight came with the largest body in the Oldsmobile lineup, and it was powered by the straight-8 engine. The car was available in two-door coupe and four-door sedan bodystyles. The models produced before WW II had a shorter wheelbase (3,175 mm) compared to those produced since 1946 (3,226 mm). The new styling offered in 1948 was renamed the Futuramic 98. The next year came another styling that was notable for a new engine, the famous Rocket V8. An OHV V8 engine known for its first and lasts in the automotive industry. It was the first mass-produced OHV V8 in 1949 and the last carbureted V8 passenger car engine in 1990.

In 1949 Oldsmobile brought three highly styled "hardtop convertible" coupes, one-of-a-kind bodystyles to be regularly produced at that time. The four-door fastback bodystyle, badged as Town Sedan, was added to the lineup in 1950. Starting with 1950, all models were badged simply as the Oldsmobile 98. Several next generations featured same Rocket V8 engine with slight modifications to the engine and body shell. The seventh generation featured completely new body style, sharing the C-body with Cadillac. The new Ninety-Eight Luxury Sedan model featured vinyl roof and a more luxury interior, now available with such Oldsmobile parts, as power windows and seats. There was also added Super Rocket V8 engine paired with all-new 3-speed Turbo Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. It was the last Oldsmobile 98 to be equipped with a manual transmission. Later models of this generation featured more amenities: recessed padded instrument panel, anti-theft lock within the steering column, rear view mirror map light, mini-buckle seat belts, and deeply padded head restraints.

The biggest full-size vehicle in the Oldsmobile lineup was the generation eight Oldsmobile 98, featuring larger Rocket V8 and catalytic converter equipped exhaust system. The 74-76 models were to be one of the fist US-produced vehicles, equipped with an airbag. In 1972 the Limited Edition Regency was released to celebrate the Oldsmobile's 75th anniversary. It was an edition with a total of 2,650 vehicles built, all of them being 4 door hardtops. The ninth generation models were downsized to meet new industry and economy standards. This generation featured new 4-speed THM200-4R automatic transmission and became the last rear wheel drive Oldsmobile 98. Tenth and eleventh generations were front wheel drive. The 181 cubic inch V6 was the standard powerplant, while Buick's 231 and Oldsmobile's 263 cubic inch diesel V6 engines were available as an option. On-board computer was added to the tenth generation equipment in addition to other amenities such as optional driver's-side airbag. The release of final eleventh generation of the Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight model coincided with its 50th anniversary in 1991. The last generation Ninety-Eight was offered in two main models: the luxury-oriented Regency and the performance-oriented Touring. Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight was discontinued in 1996, one year after the release of Oldsmobile Aurora.

One of the most important cars in American history, the Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight has seen ups and downs of the auto industry and has managed to evolve along with it. Simply put, the Ninety-Eight is a classic, and should be treated as such, with th use of high-quality accessories and parts.
