30 bhp, 201.1 cu. in. L-head inline four-cylinder engine, three-speed selective sliding-gear transmission, solid front axle with semi-elliptic leaf-spring suspension, semi-floating rear axle with rear three-quarter-elliptic leaf-spring suspension, and rear-wheel mechanical brakes. Wheelbase: 106 in.

Its price in 1912 was $1,250-$1,260. Oakland’s total production in 1912 was 4,366 vehicles.

Oakland Motor Car Company is largely remembered today as one of the founding names of General Motors, and it is also the company that created the car from which the Pontiac was born. It is easily forgotten that the company was around for 24 successful years, that, in its day, it was a household name, and that it made its mark on the American automobile scene with its stylish yet powerful cars.
