Except for the big 394 cubic-inch engine and the rear axle the Oldsmobile was virtually a new car for 1961, the box frame was widened, new bodies were created and they made a new lighter version of the Hydra-matic transmission. Horsepower was increased from 240 to 250 on the Dynamic 88, and from 315 to 325 on the Super 88 and 98 models. The changes made for a roomier interior starting in 1961.
