True or False

True or False?

The only mid-1960s, rear wheel drive, full-sized Olds "sporty" model that came standard with a console & bucket seats, as well as the largest displacement V8 made by Olds at the time, was the Starfire.

If true, the exam is finished.

If false, explain your disagreement with the above statement.

Thanks for biting. :)

Actually, you get half credit. The correct answer was "false", and the sporty full-sized model that offered many of the same features and styling of the Starfire (including bucket seats and the big V8) for less money was the Jetstar I, available only during 1964 and 1965. In '64, the Jetstar I came standard with the 345 HP, 394 V8 and in '65, it came with the 370 HP, 425 V8.

The regular Jetstar 88 line featured Oldsmobile's new small block 330 CID V8 in '64 and '65, but the Jetstar I added bucket seats plus the Starfire's distinctive roofline and "big block" V8.

Damn- I was hoping this wasn't answered yet... so I could answer it. From the Olds Division the Jetstar I is among my favorites.
