In mid-1961, Oldsmobile introduced the Starfire, a high-style, full-size model based on the Super Eighty-Eight celebrating the GM Divisions rich performance heritage. Aimed straight at the personal luxury market dominated for several years by Fords Thunderbird, the Starfire became a separate Oldsmobile series for 1962-66. In addition to special and very tasteful exterior trim, the Starfire featured luxurious Ninety-Eight-level interiors equipped with front bucket seats and a center console housing a shifter for the four-speed Hydra-Matic Drive automatic transmission and a large tachometer. Renowned for outstanding highway performance and road manners, the 1961-64 Starfire was powered by Oldsmobiles most powerful engine, displacing 394 CI and progressively uprated to 345 BHP and 440 pounds-feet of torque by 1964 with a Rochester 4-barrel carburetor, 10.5:1 compression, performance cam, free-breathing cylinder heads and dual exhaust. Priced nearly $5,000 new, these premium road cars make ideal alternatives to the far more common Fords and Chevrolets of the era, with outstanding performance, upscale presence, and collector-grade rarity.
One of just 2,410 Starfire Convertibles produced for 1964, this wonderful example retains its excellent and original color combination including the majority of its factory-original Code J Fern Mist paint finish. In addition to front bucket seats and a sleek center console mounting a large factory tachometer, this Starfire Convertible is nicely equipped for cruising enjoyment with power-assisted brakes and steering, plus power windows, plus tilt steering, a clock, and pushbutton AM radio with power antenna. Two sets of keys, a convertible-top boot cover, factory wire-spoke wheel covers, floor mats, and a spare wheel/tire assembly with roadside jack round out this Starfire nicely. Just over 68,000 miles are indicated at the time of writing.
