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.
