1929 Oakland All-American Six news, pictures, and information
In 1926, Oakland started building the lower-priced Pontiac as a 'companion car.' The relatively inexpensive 6-cylinder Pontiac was an immediate success and quickly overshadowed the more costly Oakland. The last Oakland was built in 1931. More than one million Oaklands had been produced by that time.
The senior Oakland for 1928 and 1928 was advertised as the 'All-American Six.' The 1929 model featured new styling, but continued to use the 212-cubic-inch engine introduced in 1928. All 1929 Pontiacs and Oaklands featured a chrome divider bar that vertically split their radiators visually.
This Oakland is finished in one of the two 1929 color combination that did not have black fenders. The Oakland Sedan listed for $1,245 - about one-third more than a comparable Pontiac. Its 117-inch wheelbase was seven inches longer than the 1929 Pontiac. Oakland production for 1929 totaled 50,693 cars.
This rare example of the 1929 Oakland was stored for more than 60 years before it was obtained and restored by the current owner.
