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

Information about Oldsmobile V8 engines
In this video I talk about the "late" Oldsmobile V8 and offer tips on how
to identify them by number.
"Late" in this instance means 1964-1990. Early('49-64) Olds engines are an
entirely different block, etc.
Sometimes my info gets a bit twisted when it stays inside my head for a
while, so a correction is that '77-80 heads are 3A, not 4A. 4A heads are
Also, to clarify and avoid confusion, this...7 A is a 350 head, this...7A
is a later 307 head. You can also tell the difference easily by the ports.
Late 307 and 260 ports are half the size of any other versions.
Trivia: The Olds 403 was used in 1977-79 Pontiac Trans-Am's, but not all of
Of note...the engine in the video is painted the incorrect shade of gold,
which appears to be the Krylon generic gold. The proper shade is slightly
darker and less "glitzy"
