The Series 60 is a full-size automobile manufactured by Oldsmobile from model years 1939 through 1948.
Naming standards changed at Oldsmobile in the late 1930s and 1940s. From 1932 through 1938, Oldsmobile ran two series: “F” and “L”, including the 1937-1938 Oldsmobile six-cylinder engine. The F Series came with an inline six engine and the L Series came with a larger body and an inline eight engine. The F Series was renamed the 60 Series in 1939 and the L Series was replaced by the 70 and 80 Series, with the 70 and 80 Series powered by six and eight respectively. The 60 Series used GM’s A body and the 70 and 80 Series used the B body.
1939 Oldsmobile Series 60 Business Coupe
The Series 60 held the entry-level position for Oldsmobiles sold in the United States from 1939 through the 1948 model years. They were trimmed in an entry-level manner and, in parts and components, the Series 60 models were closely related. with Chevrolets and Pontiacs.
The 1939 Oldsmobiles were available with the “automatic safety transmission.” The automatic safety transmission was semi-automatic, in the sense that it still used a clutch to start the car and then shifted automatically. The Hydramatic transmission, a clutchless automatic transmission, debuted in the 1940 model year.
In 1939 there were four body styles available: a business coupe with no rear seat, a club coupe with two rear fold-down seats, a two-door sedan with a full rear seat, and a four-door sedan that shared the roof line with the two-door sedan. The wheelbase was 115 inches. The front seat backs were rounded and padded to protect the rear seat occupants. A 90 hp (67 kW) I6 216CID was used.
In 1940, the even larger C body was introduced at Oldsmobile and it was only powered by the inline eight. To differentiate it from the Series 80 of the previous year, it was called Series 90 (that year there was no Series 80). The series also received names for the first time that year and the Series 60, 70 and 90 were named Special, Dynamic and Custom Cruiser respectively.
Two body styles were added to the model line in 1940: a two-door convertible and a four-door station wagon. Additionally, a full rear seat was added to the club coupe, though it still didn’t share the somewhat more spacious two-door sedan’s roofline. A luxury equipment package was also new that year.
