Offered Without Reserve

CHASSIS NO: 626M13999
• Oldsmobile’s top-of-the-line, full-size performer of the early ‘60s
• 345 HP, 394 cid “Rocket” V-8 and Hydra-Matic four-speed automatic
• Older but very attractive and well-preserved restoration in striking colors
• Distinctive trim, leather upholstery, and comprehensive power features

394 cid “Rocket” V-8 engine, single Rochester four-barrel carburetor, 345 HP, Hydra-Matic four-speed automatic transmission, independent front suspension with A-arms and coil springs, live rear axle, four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes; wheelbase: 123"


In mid-1961, Oldsmobile reintroduced the Starfire nameplate for its new high-style, high-content, and high-performance full-size convertible, intended to recapture the GM Division’s rich performance heritage. Aimed squarely at the personal luxury/sporty car market dominated by Ford’s Thunderbird, the Starfire shared its 123-inch wheelbase with the Eighty-Eight line and came highly equipped with features and amenities. The Starfire returned for 1962 to include a hardtop and it spawned a host of similar high-level offerings from the other GM divisions, including Pontiac’s Grand Prix, Buick’s Riviera, and just a few years later, Oldsmobile’s own front-drive Toronado.

Priced at $4,647, the Starfire Convertible had a multitude of standard equipment including all the features of the Super Eighty-Eight plus brushed aluminum side panels and a sporty cockpit featuring bucket seats, leather upholstery, a floor console with a tachometer, and power front seats. The Starfire was powered by Olds’ top 394 cubic-inch “Rocket” V-8 engine with 345 brake horsepower and 440 pounds-feet of torque, courtesy of a Rochester four-barrel carburetor, 10.5:1 compression, revised cam profiling, and a free-flowing dual exhaust system. A four-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission sent power to the rear wheels via a 3.42 Anti-Spin limited-slip rear axle. Starfire sales were brisk, with 34,839 two-door hardtops built, plus 7,149 convertibles.

The 1962 Oldsmobile Starfire Convertible offered here from the Monical Collection is an older, but very attractive and well-presented, restoration that Mr. Monical reports is also a very good driving example. In addition to its eye catching exterior finish, complemented by a white power convertible top, boot cover, striking bodyside trim, whitewall tires, and factory “spinner” hubcaps, the Starfire’s jet cockpit-style interior features rich two-tone leather upholstery with boldly patterned seat inserts. Other highlights include a clock, courtesy lights, a pushbutton-operated transistor AM radio with power antenna, front and central rear speakers, power steering, power windows, and the Safety Sentinel speed monitor. Underhood, the powerful “Rocket” V-8 engine features proper components and bright accents characteristic of the top-level Starfire. Nicely restored, highly equipped, and very well-presented, this 1962 Oldsmobile Starfire Convertible is an exciting, powerful, and rare automobile. It will certainly provide an abundance of open-air motoring pleasure for its new owner wherever it goes, along with a welcome dash of upscale Mad Men-era flair.
