Power was from a 348 cubic-inch six-cylinder engine offering 100 horsepower (the Series 66). The Model 86 vehicles were fitted with an eight-cylinder engine. A column-shifted, three-speed manual transmission was standard with a Hydra-Matic available as optional equipment.

The Sixty Series came standard with safety glass, spare wheel and tire, vacuum booster pump, cigarette lighter, dual horns, and a spare wheel and tire.

This particular Woody Wagon has a body built by Hercules. It is fitted with the Hydra-Matic transmission and it has a 6-volt electrical system. Inside, there is an AM radio, three rows of seating, and a heater.

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.
