Description

Lot #1345 - This fully restored Oldsmobile Touring Runabout was a larger car than the original Oldsmobile Curved Dash with a 10" longer wheelbase, the first Oldsmobile to feature a steering wheel in place of a tiller and with its new hood and body configuration, it began to look like an automobile instead of a buckboard. Oldsmobile marketing of the day advertised the Touring Runabout with the phrase, "For business or pleasure, in rain or sunshine, the pioneer Runabout has no equal. It is always ready. It represents the latest and best in automobile construction, the product of the largest automobile plant in the world." With a reported production of about 5,000 vehicles, Olds Motor Works was the largest volume automobile producer in the United States. In September of 1904, Ransom E. Olds, left the company his family started and formed the REO Automobile Company. THIS IS A HISTORICAL VEHICLE.
