F-85 — For the first time Oldsmobile broke with its three series format in 1961. The new entry-level Oldsmobile was the all new F-85 compact car. Smaller than any postwar Oldsmobile, the F-85 was powered by a unique aluminum 215-cid V-8. It joined small-car offerings from Buick and Pontiac. Standard equipment included foam-cushioned front seat, front armrests, dual sun visors, turn signals, stablizer bar and self-energizing brakes. Cloth or vinyl interiors were offered. Standard tire size was 6.50 × 11 inches. The F-85 was built in the Lansing and Southgate assembly plants.
