THE “B-44” ... BETTER LOOKING ... BETTER LASTING ... BETTER BUILT THAN ANY Oldsmobile IN FORTY-FOUR YEARS

 

W związku z przystąpieniem USA do wojny, 5 lutego przestawiono produkcję na potrzeby wojska.


5'th of February the civilian production was halted at Oldsmobile factory.

IT'S QUALITY – BUILT TO LAST
THE nation's oldest motor car manufacturer has been serving the needs of the American public dependably, year after year, since 1897. Now, to help keep working America on the move and to serve an increased need for efficient, dependable, economical transportation, Oldsmobile offers the "B-44." It's a heavy, husky Oldsmobile, geared in design to the tempo of modern living , built to give years and years of dependable service, capable of fine performance, yet economical in its use of gasoline and oil. So advanced in style that it will keep its youth for years, so advanced in engineering that it incorporates everything that is new and modern, the "B-44" is better looking better lasting, and better built than any Oldsmobile in 44 years. The Oldsmobile "B-44" is offered in three wheelbase lengths, five series, including two sixes and three eights. The keynote of them all is quality ... quality in design, quality in materials, quality in workmanship ... quality that promises long-lasting satisfaction under any and all conditions – yet quality that exacts no premium in price. When it comes to value, as well as style, engineering, and workmanship, remember – "You Can Always Count on Oldsmobile!"


TO SERVE THE VITAL NEEDS OF TODAY'S AMERICA
 
DEFENSE comes first with Oldsmobile! The production of arms and ammunition for the United States Government takes priority over production of cars for civilian service. However, Oldsmobile will continue to build motor cars to keep working America on the move – but the quantity will necessarily be limited by the availability of materials and priority of defense production. Shells for field guns and hwitzers started coming off the production line at Oldsmobile in April, 1941. Automatic cannon for fighting planes followed a few months later. And other defense activities are under way. To co-operate further with the defence program, changes in motor car specifications may become necessary in the interest of the national emergency. Therefore, Oldsmobile Division, General Motors Sales Corporation, reserves the right to make changes at any time, without notice, in prices, colors, materials, equipment, specifications and models, and also to discontinue models.
