1954 Oldsmobile F-88 PR Photos

Factory Press Information Kits, also known as Media Information Kits, included a variety of materials together or separate. Many times they are even today sent to the media with the intent that they will be published as an announcement or article.

These kits included, but were not limited to, such items as: press releases, black & white and color publicity photos, color 35mm slides, specifications sheets, sales brochures, and data sheets.

The 1954 Oldsmobile F-88 was to be the cousin of the Chevy Corvette. However, GM decided that there was no market for an upscale sports luxury car and killed it just before release. It was not a model but a fully functional and tested car, ready for production. Of course Thunderbird debuted in 1955 - guess what car outsold Corvette by 23 to 1?

The car was stillborn, but it was an actively displayed and PR photos and other marketing materials were generated.

The Automotive History Preservation Society Digital Documents Library provides these materials for educational, or research, or personal use. You should not republish these materials for financial gain without informing the original author or publisher.
