1948 Oldsmobile Sixty Series news, pictures, specifications, and information
 
1948 marked the last year for the 'all wooden body' station wagon at Oldsmobile.

This Woodie was ordered with the delux equipment package and the optional Hydra-matic transmission. It is powered by a 238 cubic inch, 100 horsepower, in-line six cylinder engine.

There were only 553 Oldsmobile Delux station wagons built in 1948 at a base price of $2,739.
The Oldsmobile Series 60 was introduced in the late 1930s and remained in production until 1948 when the six-cylinder engine was given a larger displacement, to 257 cubic-inches. The Series 60 was Oldsmobile's entry level vehicle, offered in two flavors, the 66 and the 68. The Model 66's were powered by a six-cylinder engine that displaced 238 cubic-inches; the 68 had an eight-cylinder engine. There were a variety of bodystyles included for both the 66 and 68, including the two-door club coupe, four-door bustle back, 9-passenger woody station wagon, convertible, and two-door Fleeline. All, except the convertible and station wagons, were available in either Standard or Deluxe trim. All Series 60s were offered with a standard three-speed column shift manual gearbox. A four-speed Hydramatic automotive unit was available at an additional cost. The standard tires measured 6.00x16.
