Oakland Model 6-54B Sedan

Changes and improvements in the Oakland for 1925 included larger cylinder bores, a higher compression ratio, a new Stromberg carburetor, the use of balloon tires, and new styling features.

All closed-body cars had a new Fisher Vision & Ventilating (V.V.) windshield with automatic wipers. The sun visors on these cars now wrapped over at the sides, eliminating the oíd exposed-brackets look.

The bar between the headlights disappeared and open cars had permanent tops, close-fitting side curtains, and the windshield molded in rubber. Glass enclosures were available at slight extra cost.

Standard equipment included a theft-proof ignition lock, Steel disc wheels and balloon cord tires (except Special Sedan equipped with artillery-type, wood-spoke wheels and balloon tires), automatic windshield wipers, door locks, permanent tops, a rear-mounted spare tire carrier, a cowl ventilator, a speedometer, an ammeter, an oil gauge, an odometer, tools, a tire pump, a jack, and roller shades.

The Special Touring and Special Roadster featured a front bumper, rear fender guards, a motometer with wing cap, windshield wings and nickel-plated head, cowl, and tail lamps.
