SEVENTY-SIX SERIES — This was the final year for both the Seventy-Six series and its “Big Six” engine. Olds would not offer another six-cylinder until the mid-1960s and that engine would be built by Buick. The Seventy-Six models were again nearly identical to the Eighty-Eight offerings. Standard equipment on the base models included: bumper guards, dual horns, parking lamps, dome light, rubber front floor mats, aluminum sill plates. Deluxe equipment included: foam rubber seat cushions, robe rails, stainless steel gravel shields and extra chrome moldings. Upholstery choices were striped cloth, broadcloth, nylon surrey weave and leather. Standard tire size was 7.10 × 15 inches. For 1950, a Holiday hardtop was introduced to the Seventy-Six and Eighty-Eight series and this marked the last year for an Oldsmobile station wagon until 1957.
