1902 Oldsmobile

1902 Curved Dash Oldsmobile

Ransom Eli Olds created the Curved Dash Oldsmobile in 1901. It was the first mass produced automobile. In 1901 a total of 425 were produced. Production increased in 1902 and 2,500 were made. Once again production was increased and 4,000 were assembled in 1903. In 1904 Oldsmobile made 5,508 of them. The Curved Dash Olds was very dependable. To demonstrate this fact, in 1903, a curved dash Olds was driven from San Francisco to New York, Boston and Portland, Maine by Lester Whitman and Eugene Hammond. Traveling all the way across the United States of America was quite a feat in that day!
