For 1940, the Oldsmobile 60-Series was the entry level model. That year's model was nine-inches longer than its 1939 counterpart and for 1940, a station wagon model was offered for the first time. 3-seats for family oriented travel and outings, the wood bodied Oldsmobile 4-door Series 60 station wagon was well-outfitted for camping, hauling, and long distance travel.

For 1940, Oldsmobile sold 192,692 vehicles and achieved an all-time high. 69,953 were Series 60 models and just 633 were station wagon models.

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.
