Footnotes

  • Large, powerful, four-cylinder cars with capacities as large as 7.7-litres had been a feature of Oldsmobile's range in the late 1900s, but it was not until 1914 that the company downsized the concept to create the first four-cylinder 'baby' Olds, the Model 42. The Model 42 was joined the following season by the slightly larger Model 43, with 'valve-in-head' engine, only for the four-cylinder Olds to disappear from the range almost immediately. Revived in 1921 as the Model 43-A, the four-cylinder model would be Oldsmobile's top seller for the next few years and an immense success for the company until rationalisation saw the range confined to six-cylinder designs from 1924 onwards. The Oldsmobile Sixes had commenced in 1923 with the first of the Model 30 series, which for the next few years would be powered by a 169ci (2,770cc) engine producing 42bhp. For 1927, the last year of the Model 30, the engine was enlarged to 185ci (3.0-litres) and four-wheel brakes adopted on these Series E cars, while for 1928 the new, physically larger F Series came with a 197ci (3,237cc) engine under the bonnet.
    This right-hand drive Oldsmobile Model 30 Series E was shipped new to Australia and bodied there by Holden, later to become General Motors' subsidiary 'down under'. Restored circa 2000, the car was imported into the UK by Orchid Cars and first registered in this country in December 2009. The current vendor purchased the Oldsmobile in 2012 and since acquisition has used it for highday motoring and a family wedding, as well as displaying it at the Churchill Classic Car Show in 2012.

    Of high quality, the restoration is holding up admirably, the engine running very well in near silence and the transmission operating without fault. The fully restored chassis is in excellent condition as is the bodywork, with good door and bonnet fit, while the interior has been trimmed well and the electrics rewired. Currently taxed and MoT'd, this charming Vintage-era Oldsmobile if offered with V5C registration document and a quantity of spare parts and instruction manuals (list available).
