The new 1961 Oldsmobile compact, dubbed F-85, shared a new A-body platform, using a 112-inch wheelbase and still-novel unibody construction, with the Buick Special and Pontiac Tempest. It was Oldsmobile's smallest & least expensive model. About two feet shorter and $451 less expensive than the next-smallest Olds. The F-85 has double wishbone front suspension and a four-link live axle in the rear, suspended with coil springs all around. Standard engine was the new all aluminum small V8 displacing 215 cu in (which later became famous as the Rover V8). With a two-barrel carburetor, it was rated 155 bhp and 210 foot pounds of torque. Transmission options were initially three-speed manual or the newly introduced three-speed Roto Hydramatic. The F-85 has 9.5 inch diameter drum brakes. The overall length is 188.2 inches, and curb weight is around 2,800 pounds. Car Life magazine tested an F-85 with the standard engine and automatic transmission, and recorded a 0-60 time of 14.5 seconds, with a top speed just over 100 miles per hour. The Cutlass sports coupe was introduced about mid year in 1961 sporting unique trim, an interior with bucket seats and optional center console, and a four-barrel version of the V8 engine, rated at 185 horsepower. This engine was optional on other F-85s, as was a four-speed manual transmission. 80,347 F-85s were built in total.
