This is part of my collection of ads from Oldsmobile from 1948 to 1950.
Note: Ads are sorted according to publishing date. As car model years changed in October each year it is possible that cars of a model year show up in an overview of the previous year when the ad was published. Example: A 1951 model is featured in November 1950 and therefore would show up in the 1950 overview.
These years mark a transition from early styling of the prewar years to the modern styling that Oldsmobile combined with the newly developed Rocket Engine. The first redesigned cars that appeared in 1948 had the new styling recognized basically by integrated front fenders but still used the old inline Six or Inline Eight engines. Starting 1949. Oldmobile introduced the famous Rocket Engine. Cars of the 88 and 98 line were equipped with this new power plant.
