1966 Oldsmobile Starfire
Car for sale by GR Auto Gallery in Grand Rapids, Michigan 49512
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
Finished in a beautiful Provincial White exterior over a Red Morroceen vinyl interior, this is a highly optioned Starfire. The exterior paint shows well and the interior is one of the nicest to have come through our doors. Chrome trim pieces accent the red vinyl interior nicely and make for an extremely elegant environment.
For the 1966 year, Oldsmobile decided to remove many of the standard options previously optioned on the Starfire to boost sales of the front-wheel-drive Toronado. This meant that power steering, power brakes, and many other options were removed from the base Starfire. The example offered here has power steering and power brakes making it surprisingly maneuverable despite its large size. Mechanically this Starfire is sound as it runs and idles smoothly.
During the 50s and 60s, America was fascinated with the space race; what things would look like in the future as new technologies, new designs were at a rapid pace. The American automotive manufacturers pick up on this concept and futuristic designs and nameplates began showing up on their cars. Vehicles like the Oldsmobile Starfire were designed and marketed in this theme. They were big, they were beautiful, they drove smooth and they gave the American public a peek towards the future.
