Most people think Henry Ford invented the first low-cost motorcar in America thanks to mass-produced and standardized assembly components. It was actually Ransom E. Olds' "Curved Dash" that was assembled using Oldsmobile auto parts created on a "modern" assembly line in 1901, seven years before the release of the Model T Ford.
Born in Geneva, Ohio to blacksmith Pliny Olds and his wife Sarah Whipple Olds, Ransom E. Olds (REO) spent his adult life in Lansing, Michigan. Olds joined forces with Frank Clark (the son of a successful carriage shop owner) to found the Olds Motor Vehicle Company in 1897, which was sold two years later to lumber and copper magnate Samuel L. Smith. Olds remained with the company as vice president for several years, but after a falling-out Olds left and started a new automotive venture called REO Motor Car Company, which he sold to General Motors in 1908. Under GM's care the brand prospered for 107 years, particularly during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, when many of the "Rocket Engine" Cutlass cars were among the best-selling vehicles in America. Unfortunately sales slowed in the late 1990s due to public perception that important Oldsmobile parts and assemblies used to build the vehicles were being replaced with more pedestrian GM components (such as the Chevy 350 instead of the Rocket V8), forcing GM to phase out the line in 2004.
