NINETY EIGHT REGENCY has disabled reputation
You are doing the right thing. Just know your 1996 shares parts with: 1994-1996 Ninety Eight, Eighty Eight 1994-1999, Regency 1997-1998, and Regency was the Eighty Eight with the Ninety Eight parts( grille, wheels, seats, and interior parts. There are so parts that were shared with 1991-1993 Ninety Eight, but know too GM changed plugs and connectors too. On my 1995 Oldsmobile Ninety Eight the climate control plug in the back was different. I had to find one on Ebay that shared the same plug.

Also note the Ninety Eight shared parts with Buick Park Avenue, and Buick LeSabre and Pontiac Bonneville and Cadillac Deville and Fleetwood. My 1992 Oldsmobile Toronado and 1995 Oldsmobile Ninety Eight share some parts. Your Ninety Eight is OBD II.

I found parts through: Ebay, finditparts.com, discontinued spares.com and a host of those GM dealerships that still had old stock. Rock Auto.com too. Amazon also sells parts now. I get a lot of AC Delco parts for mechanical things from Rock Auto.com or Amazon.com

You are telling the truth about the sun destroying the interiors. I have to redo my seats because they are leather and the sun and Hurricane Harvey finished them off along with a mechanic who had something bulging from his pockets. I found the GM cloth online they used. I am planning to switch from leather to that luxury GM cloth. I also found the weatherstripping that goes into the doors. I have to dye it to match. SEM or Classic Dye matches pretty well.

Miss that Olds 442? Believe it or not, Kia may have something for you. The Kia Stinger is a large sport-oriented hatchback sedan in the mold of the Audi A7.
