'More for your Money' - This automobile was only in production for 90 days. The Oakland Motor Car Company was founded in 1907 and became part of General Motors in 1909. In 1925, General Motors sought an intermediate car priced between the Chevrolet and Oakland. The V-8 was going to be produced as the 1932 Oakland, though due to Pontiac's popularity General Motors integrated Oakland (Pontiac's parent company) into the Pontiac badge in late 1931. A total of 6,281 Pontiac's were produced of all bodystyles for 1932. The body is by Fisher. The engine is a 251 cubic-inch V8 that developed 85 horsepower and was capable of 75 miles per hour.
The 251 cubic-inch L-head V8 engine had a 5.2:1 compression ratio, a one-barrel Marvel downdraft carburetor, and produced 85 horsepower. The first Pontiac V-8 began production on December 22, 1931 and was larger carried over from the 1930-1931 Oakland. The engine's unusual vibration-suppression synchronizer, which mechanically pushed in the opposite direction of its inherent rocking, was relocated from the right to the left side of the block.Also photographed at :
