For 1962, the Oldsmobile 88 received a "secondyear" facelift that included a revised grille and front bumper. Changes to the rear included the removal of the rear fender skegs and oval taillights, one on each side for Dynamic and Super 88 models replacing the 1961's round units. 1962 Starfires received two oval lights per side, much like the concurrent Oldsmobile NinetyEight models. Changes to the greenhouse included new roof lines for the fourdoor Celebrity sedan and Holiday hardtop sedans. Twodoor sedans were dropped, while twodoor hardtops received a new convertibleinspired roofline. The "bubbletop" twodoor hardtop was dropped as well. Length was increased somewhat to give the '62 Olds a longer look. Oldsmobile marketing continued to use the trade names of Rotomatic Power Steering and Pedaleeze Power Brakes.
All Oldsmobiles featured the "speed bar" speedometer. Introduced in 1959, the speedometer used a rolling black cylinder with sections painted brilliant green, yellow and bright red. As the car went from a stop forward in speed, the cylinder rolled, first exposing the green in a window that matched the numeric speed on stationary speed dial for low speeds, yellow at moderate speeds and finally red at highway speeds. Drivers who topped the car over 100mph moved the cylinder into an area where only the black base color was visible.
Oldsmobile Dynamic 88s and Oldsmobile Fiesta wagons for 1962 (based on the 88 platform but retaining most of the 1961 wagon's rear styling) each had their own upholstery patterns in single and dualtone colors. Super 88s received tritone upholstery and trim. Heaters became standard equipment on all models and the pushbutton controls were located to the right of the steering wheel column. Cars equipped with factory air conditioning replaced the vent control panel with the air conditioning panel, which also contained its own blower switch. These cars also sported round dash vents for the A/C airflow delivery.
Competition to this Oldsmobile grocerygetter in 1962 included Buicks LeSabre Estate Wagon, Chryslers New Yorker Town & Country Wagon, Dodges Dart 440 Wagon and Mercurys Colony Park Wagon.
