Oldsmobiles car history
Oldsmobiles were first manufactured by the Olds Motor Vehicle Company in Lansing, Mich., a company founded by Ransom Eli Olds in 1897. In 1901 the company produced 425 cars. For several years the company became the largest corporation in U.S. sales. Ransom Olds left the company in financial difficulties and formed the REO Motor Car Company. General Motors acquired the company in 1908.

From 1901 to 1904 Curved Dash was the first car produced in series, produced in an assembly line, a joint invention and erroneously attributed to Henry Ford and the Ford Motor Company. After Olds sold the company in 1899, it was renamed Olds Motor Works and translated into a new plant in Detroit. In March 1901 the company had a large amount of materials and parts to produce a large mass production of automobiles, but the fault of a worker caused a fire in which all the prototypes were lost. The only vehicle that was saved was a Curved Dash prototype in which two workers fled the fire. After this serious incident and built a new factory began production of the Curved Dash.

Officially, the cars were called "Olds automobiles," colloquially known as "Oldsmobiles."

The 1910 Limited Touring model was a big plus for the company. With the classic white wheels of the company, 42 inches, became the flagship Oldsmobile. It cost about $ 4,600, almost as much as a three-bedroom house. The buyers received the vehicle goat leather upholstery with room for five reps. Some options that could add to the car were for example a speedometer or clock among others. It also produced a limousine version that arrives with a price of U.S. $ 5800. Although only 725 units were sold during its three years of production, the Limited is remembered for getting the victory in a race against the famed 20th Century Limited train, an event immortalized in the "Setting the Pace" by William Hardner Foster.
