THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This particular Curved Dash Oldsmobile was purchased new in Wisconsin by a Dr. James D. Nickleson. The good doctor retained the car until 1908 when it was sold to Olaf Lund, who drove the car over 500 miles back to his home in Minnesota. The car passed to his brother Oscar after he saved it from a scrap yard in 1918. It would remain in the Lund family until 1965 when it was acquired by State Senator Norm Larson, who sold it to its next owner Max Campbell.

In 1977, the car was purchased by Gary Hoonsbeen, founder of the Curved Dash Olds Club, and later author of The Design History of the Single Cylinder Oldsmobile. Gary was also the editor of the club newsletter for over 40 years and was recognized as world's foremost authority on the cars. He dedicated countless hours to researching the history of the Curved Dash Olds to help owners with their restorations.

In honor of the man who saved the car from the scrap yard, Gary named the car Oscar after Oscar Lund. At the time, it was in very original condition but in need of restoration after years of storage. Over the next 5-years, Gary carefully restored the car to as new condition.

In 1985, Oldsmobile sponsored Gary on a recreation of the epic transcontinental journey from San Francisco to New York first completed by a curved dash in 1903. This 1902 Olds is the very car that completed the arduous journey, and numerous pictures of the adventure are present in the history file.

Today, this particularly well document Curved Dash Olds presents very well, having been in the stewardship of world renowned authority on the cars since 1977. It is presented with all its history and is ready to tour.
