Oldsmobiles were first manufactured by the Olds Motor Works in Lansing,
Michigan, a company founded by Ransom E. Olds in 1897. In 1901, the company
produced 425 cars, making it the first high-volume gasoline-powered
automobile manufacturer. Oldsmobile became the top selling car company in
the United States for a few years. Ransom Olds left the company in
financial difficulties and formed the REO Motor Car Company. The last
Curved Dash Oldsmobile was made in 1907. General Motors purchased the
company in 1908.
The 1901 to 1904 Oldsmobile Curved Dash was the first mass-produced
car, made from the first automotive assembly line, an
invention that is often miscredited to Henry Ford and the Ford Motor
Company. (Ford was the first to manufacture cars on a moving assembly
line.) After Olds sold the company in 1899, it was renamed Olds Motor Works
and moved to a new plant in Detroit. By March 1901, the company had a whole
line of models ready for mass production. Unfortunately, a mistake by a
worker caused the factory to catch fire, and it burned to the ground, with
all of the prototypes destroyed. The only car that survived the fire was a
Curved Dash prototype, which was wheeled out of the factory by two workers
while escaping the fire. A new factory was built, and production of the
Curved Dash commenced.
Officially, the cars were called "Oldsmobile automobiles," colloquially
referred to as "Oldsmobiles." It was this moniker, as applied especially to
the Oldsmobile Curved Dash, that was popularized in the lyrics and title of
the 1905 hit song "In My Merry Oldsmobile..."
For the 1940 model, Oldsmobile was the first auto manufacturer to offer a
fully automatic transmission, called the Hydramatic, which featured four
forward speeds. It had an gas pedal and a brake -- no clutch pedal. The
gear selector was on the steering column.
Starting in 1941 and continuing through 1996, Oldsmobile used a two digit
model designation. As originally implemented, the first digit signified the
body size while the second represents the number of cylinders. Body sizes
were 6, 7, 8, and 9, and 6- and 8-cylinder engines were offered. Thus,
Oldsmobiles were named 66 through 98.
The last pre-war Oldsmobile rolled off the assembly line on February 5,
1942. During World War II, Oldsmobile produced numerous kinds of material
for the war effort, including large-caliber guns and shells.
Production resumed on October 15, 1945 with a warmed-over 1942 model
serving as the offering for 1946.
Oldsmobile once again was a pioneer when, for the 1949 model, they
introduced their Rocket engine, which used an overhead valve V8 design
rather than the flathead "straight-8" design which prevailed at the time.
This engine produced far more power than the engines that were popular
during that era, and found favor with hot-rodders and stock car racers. The
basic design, with few minor changes, endured until Oldsmobile redesigned
their V8 engines in the mid-1960s...
