Oakland - 1931
The Oakland Motor Company was founded in 1970 as one of the pioneer automakers and purchased by General Motors in 1970. The Oakland lineup for 1931 included the coupe, convertible and sedan models. All models were powered by 85-hp 250-cid V-8 engine and a new synchromesh transmission with a silent second gear. Fever than 9,00 Oaklands were produced in 1931, which was their final year before becoming the Pontiac Motor Company.

This 1931 V-8 301 Custom Sedan. Oakland sales had been hit-or-miss for years, and the decision to fold the company into Pontiac may have been made as early as 1929, despite the name selling its one-millionth car in March of that year. At the New York Auto Show early in the winter of 1931, any Oaklands on display were branded as Pontiacs, and fewer than 15,000 were produced with the Oakland name before production ended in July. Any remaining Oaklands delivered through 1932 were probably titled as 1931s. Some 600 or so remaining V-8 Oakland engines were installed in Pontiacs through 1932.
