Sedan
In the 1930's Oldsmobile represented a good, solid value for the price and sales steadily increased during the late 1930's. Independent front suspension had arrived in 1934 and improved styling helped bolster Oldsmobile sales figures.

The L series featured an L-head 240 cubic-inch, inline eight-cylinder motor that developed 100 horsepower. The L-Series was built on a 121-inch wheelbase chassis. Seven different body styles were available in the L Series, including the four-door sedan which sold new for $910. The most popular body style was the 4-door Touring Sedan which saw 29,373 examples produced in 1936.

The styling was similar to the Series F six-cylinder cars, though the L-series was larger, having a wheelbase that was 6 inches larger. The most distinguishable feature between these two models was in the front. They had different grille designs.
