Oldsmobile was a brand of automobile produced for most of its existence by General Motors.

1897 Founded by Ransom E. Olds, the company produced automobiles in the United States until 2004.

1908 Acquired by General Motors

In its 107-year history, Olsdmobile produced 35.2 million cars, including at least 14 million built at its Lansing, Michigan factory. When the brand was phased out, Oldsmobile was the oldest surviving American automobile marque, and one of the oldest in the world, after Daimler and Peugeot. It was GM's only brand to be phased out in the 2000s, since the phaseout of the Geo and Asuna (which was sold only in Canada) in the 1990s.
