a 1903 curved dash Olds that Ransom Olds himself put together in the late 1940s specifically to donate it to the Michigan State University

Sunday, April 22nd, 2018 by admin

R.E. Olds donated a 1903 Curved Dash Oldsmobile to the Michigan State University Museum in 1949 to display for future generations.

MSU displayed the Olds at its museum for more than 50 years, but retired the car when exhibits changed. It had been stored at Spartan Stadium for years.

The vehicle is unique since it was constructed between 1945 and 1948 strictly for the purpose of donating to the MSU Museum. The Curved Dash design was produced from 1901 to 1907. This particular one features parts from different years, according to Val Berryman, curator of history at the MSU Museum.

“It was put together from various parts,” Berryman said. “It’s not a car that he owned, used or ran, but just something that he put together especially to donate to MSU.”

Adcock described the vehicle as a combination of several models which R.E. created with his own personal taste.

“It’s got wheels off a 1901, but an engine of a 1903 and a lot of brass pieces that I think R.E. put on himself,” Adcock said.
