Oldsmobile, a division of General Motors in Lansing MI, was founded in 1897 by Ransom E. Olds. Oldsmobile manufactured over 35.2 million automobiles, ceasing production in 2004. When phased out, Oldsmobile was the oldest surviving American automobile marque, and one of the oldest in the world after Daimler and Peugeot. Oldsmobile was among the first of GM’s divisions to receive a true hardtop in 1949, and it was also among the first divisions to receive a wraparound windshield, a trend that eventually all American makes would share between 1953 and 1964.
This 98 Holiday Coupe has a ‘Body by Fisher’ and sports 202 horsepower V8 engine of 324 cubic-inches. The Holiday Coupe can attain 120 mph and rated 19 miles per gallon.
