[column grid=”2″ span=”1″] Oldsmobile for 1955 did a substantial facelift giving the1955 a bold oval grille and jazzier two-toning. This was arguably the most attractive Olds of the decade starting in 1954. Again, this was arguably the most attractive Olds of the decade. Happily its basic look would persist through 1956. All three lines, the 88, Super 88 and 98 sold 65 % more cars in 1955 and 1956 than in 1954 giving Oldsmobile a broader share of the market.
