Oldsmobile is a brand of automobile that was produced mostly by General Motors. When this brand was phased out it was the oldest American automobile brand in America. It was the first brand to be phased out in the 20th century.
In the 1980’s, Oldsmobile sales soared because of its reputation for having the high quality and reliable Rocket V8 engines. The Cutlass series was the top selling car in 1976. In 2000 General Motors decided to phase out the Oldsmobile brand. The Bravada SUV was the last new vehicle under the Oldsmobile brand.
The final 500 Aleros, Auroras, Bravadas, Silhouettes and Intrigues had special heritage emblems and markings that said “Final 500”. All of these vehicles had a unique dark cherry metallic paint scheme. The final production day for Oldsmobile was April 29, 2004 and the last vehicle built was signed by all of the Olds assembly line workers and is on display in the RE Olds Transportation Museum.
The Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme was a midsized car produced by General Motors for the US market. It was the top car of the Cutlass series and began as a trim package. Over time it developed its own roofline and eventually was separated from the smaller Cutlasses.
The first generation Cutlass Supreme was only offered as a four door hardtop sedan in 1966. In 1967 the Cutlass Supreme line was expanded that also included a two door hardtop coupe. The Supreme models had more luxurious interiors than the F-85.
In 1970 the Cutlass Supreme two door notch back got a new roofline and the model had this same design throughout its production. In 1978 it was downsized and the new Supreme style was the most popular of all of the Cutlass series.
