Oldsmobile never went with the Tubular-Center X design without side rails. Their design was pretty traditional since 1933 but did alter the X bracing for 1959 and 1960 which made the frame a combination of both chassis designs. It was quietly dropped completely in 1961 for a perimeter frame with torque boxes.
