1939 OLDSMOBILE L-39, 8-cyl.

OLDSMOBILE — L-SERIES 80 — EIGHT: The top line Olds was again the straight eight powered L-series. This was the lone year Olds would use the 80 series designation. Despite a complete external styling change, mechanics remained largely unchanged on L-series cars. Interior space was increased on all 1939 models and once again the semi-automatic (“Safety Automatic”) transmission was offered. A column-mounted shifter was added for standard shift cars this year.
