1957 Oldsmobile J-2 Option Announcement

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.

In 1957, aside from the dramatic increase in cubic inches from 324 to 371, the biggest news was the release of the triple two-barrel carburetor option (later coded J-2) for the Oldsmobile V8. This press release, dated Sunday November 4, 1956 detailed the new option.

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.
