1981 OLDSMOBILE Omega, V-6

OMEGA — SERIES 3X — FOUR/V-6 — New options were the biggest news for the front-drive Omega in its second year. Four special styling options were announced: SX, Sport Omega, ES-2500 and ES-2800. A total 696 sport packages (RPO code Y78) were installed. As before, a coupe and sedan came in base or Brougham trim. This year's grille was a curious wrapover design. Not only did the pattern wrap slightly over onto the hood area, but the wrapover portion extended outward, above the single headlamps. The style was similar to before, but with a pattern of thin vertical bars accented by three horizontal dividers instead of vertical elements alone. Park/signal lamps were bumper-mounted. The sporty ES version carried a non-wrapover blacked-out grille.
