Follow the Leader is the sales introduction film prepared for dealers to
let them know all of sales advantages to be found in a 1937 Oldsmobile. In
1937, Oldsmobile was a pioneer in introducing a four-speed semi-automatic
transmission called the "Automatic Safety Transmission", although this
accessory was actually built by Buick, which would offer it in its own cars
in 1938. This transmission featured a conventional clutch pedal, which the
driver pressed before selecting either "low" or "high" range. In "low," the
car shifted between first and second gears. In "high," the car shifted
between first, third and fourth gears.

I got this info from Wikipedia
The Eighty-Eight's front and rear were restyled for 1996 to bear more
resemblance to the flagship Aurora.
In the 1996 model year, GM renamed the model from Eighty Eight Royale to
three models -- Eighty Eight, LSS (A "Luxury Sports Sedan" targeted to male
European car buyers, available with a supercharged V6 and a floor mounted
gear shifter). It is important to note, however, early LSS models (1995)
were rarely equipped with the 3800 Supercharged engine. The LSS was an
originally a trim level package on the 88 starting in 1992. In 1996 the LSS
received Aurora-inspired seats. 1996 was the final year that the
original-style rocket (in black and silver) appeared on a hood emblem. 1997
would welcome the new Oldsmobile logo.
After the demise of the Ninety-Eight in 1996, Oldsmobile created the
Regency for 1997-1998, which used the same front fenders and chrome grille
as the Ninety-Eight sedan but kept the standard Eighty-Eight body. The
Regency featured a long list of standard features including traction
control, leather upholstery, dual 8-way power seats with a driver's side
memory function, a dual-zone automatic climate control system, and an
electronic level control for the rear suspension. A standard driver's side
Electrochromic outside mirror was standard on the Regency, a novel feature
for it's time. The interior day/night auto-dimming mirror was linked to the
outside mirror and dimmed both with the same intensity at the same time.
Some of these options, like the 2-driver memory feature, were not available
on the Eighty-Eight Royale or LSS.
All four vehicles used the same 110.8 in (2,810 mm) wheelbase and shared an
updated version of the H-body. The suspension tuning, interior
appointments, and certain exterior trim was used to differentiate the three

Don't be fooled by the large-by-huge chrome wheels it's wearing today, this
particular '57 Golden Rocket 88 is an authentic J2 car, and is extensively
and thoroughly restored to original condition from top to bottom. Our
documents suggest that this is one of only four Golden Rocket 88 2-door
sedans in existence with the J2 engine.
The two-tone bodywork on this car is spectacularly done and looks
especially striking in black and white with a red stripe in the chrome trim
that separates the two halves. Bodywork is beautiful, with straight panels
and excellent fit throughout, evidenced by the miles-deep reflections in
The real story on this Olds is the J2 371 cubic inch engine under the hood.
Fully rebuilt during the restoration, it runs like new and the passing of
years has proven that these are some extremely durable engines. Detailing
is first-rate too, from the 'Oldsmobile J2 Rocket" decals on the valve
covers, to the correct 2-barrel carburetors, to the original power steering
system that's fully functional. You'll note that this engine sports a trio
of shorty air cleaners on the carbs, but the original dual oil-bath air
cleaner is also included.
The engine is backed by a 3-speed Hydramatic transmission, and drives the
original rear end. Brakes were rebuilt to stock specifications, as was the
suspension, although the car was given a subtle, aggressive look by
tweaking the spring height slightly. The car wears a set of chrome Billet
Specialties wheels, but the original 15-inch steel wheels and plain hubcaps
From the tri-tone seats with patented GM comfort weave cushions, to the
positively breathtaking instrument cluster, this interior is new. The
original radio has been upgraded to include an iPod interface. The trunk is
sporting a custom carpet, but an original trunk mat is included.
This Olds is fast, comfortable, luxurious, and about 2/3 the cost of a
comparable Chevy. There are no irreversible modifications, and this car
could be put back to 100% stock condition in an afternoon. Act fast and
