Oldsmobile 1946-1960 Photo Archive Oldsmobile 1946-1960 Photo Archive
by Byron Olsen
Oldsmobile had long been GM's experimental division, pioneering
new engineering and design ideas before they spread to other GM
lines. Major ideas pioneered by Olds included the first GM
semi-automatic transmission in 1937 and Hydra-matic automatic
transmission in 1940. When Olds introduced the first modern
high-compression overhead valve engines (with Cadillac), the
Rocket V8 sales boomed, helped by dazzling new styling and the
industry's first panoramic windshields. All of the great looking
Oldsmobiles of this exciting time are presented here in sharp detail
with high quality photos from the National Automotive History
Collection. Here are the revolutionary first hardtops, and later the first
four-door hardtops, Starfires, Fiestas, and concept cars. Oldsmobile
would go on to again lead the industry in sales in later years, only to
perish for good in the new millennium. Superb photos are tied
together with authoritative and informative captions, telling the story
of Olds in these nostalgic years.
