Starfire Convertible
For big-car buyers, 1954 was a GM year all the way. The Oldsmobile, the Buick and the Cadillac were all brand new, and light years beyond anything on Ford or Chrysler assembly lines.

At the top of the Olds line was the Ninety-Eight Starfire. This convertible-only model was inspired by the previous year's fiberglass-bodied Starfire Motorama dream car and limited-production Fiesta convertible, and was a relative bargain at $3,713. Styling was highlighted by GM's novel wraparound windshield, a sweeping beltline and bullet-like tail-lamps. Bold two-tones with complementing leather-trimmed interiors gave the Starfire a stunning 'mid-century modern' appearance.

Ample performance was provided by a high-compression version of Oldsmobile's already-legendary Rocket V-8 and the highly respected, sold-shifted four-speed Hydra-Matic transmission. Model-year production for the 1954 Ninety-Eight Starfire was 6,800 convertibles.

The Ninety-Eight Starfire on display was acquired by the current owner in 1997 and restored over the next three years.
