This showed up in my Facebook tonight. I didn't realize that GM Oldsmobile division made trucks.

Here is the caption with the photo:
1937 Olds: a rare GM pickup. Oldsmobile manufactured trucks from 1904-08, 1918-24, and 1936-39. Other than the grille, this 37 is the same as a GMC which also had an Olds 213 c i L-head (flathead) six (unlike Chevy which had OHV). They were built for export to Argentina, New Zealand and seem to be built in Australia by Holden.

When I die, I hope she doesn't sell everything for what I told her I paid for it!

Interesting it is left hand drive, even though made for wrong hand drive territory.

Wayne, I'm only a member of the Ranchero club in St. Cloud. I know many of our Stovebolters don't like the term Ford (Furd), but hey I have a little of everything. My 1965 427 AC has never lost to a Chevy in an 8th or 1/4 (in class), a few time out of class on the street. I have tromped many 67" 427 Corvettes and whatever a LS is and everything else GM makes. Never lost. My 427 side oiler rev's 10 grand, any 67 up GM will start making sheet metal bumps everywhere. I know because I have a 67-427 roadster going to market next Feb. at Mechams in Kissimmee, Fl. Ed

If it had a Diesel engine, '37 or later with 4-71.
