Without question, Oldsmobile is definitively a “gone but not forgotten” American brand. Established in 1897, more than 35 million vehicles made up the Oldsmobile fleet over its lifetime. In 2004, General Motors discontinued production of the line, ending a run of 107 years. Popular designs catapulted Oldsmobile to great heights in the 1970s and 1980s, but engine inconsistencies that were not disclosed initially to the public ultimately damaged the brand to the point that it could not recover.
Buyers looking for a used Oldsmobile for sale to get an Oldsmobile V8 engine or a Chevrolet 350 engine may find what they are looking for in auto auctions. Popular fleet models include the Toronado, Omega, Alero GL, Aurora, Bravada, Intrigue, Silhouette, Cutlass, and Cutlass Supreme.
