The last Oldsmobile heads to auction

Ready to roll again? The last Oldsmobile produced, a 2004 Alero, is being readied for auction this week.

The last Oldsmobile to come off the line is headed for the auction lane.

General Motors and GM Financial will sell the 2004 Oldsmobile Alero at State Line Auto Auction in Waverly, N.Y., on Friday, Dec. 15.

Also on sale that day at the same auction will be two other last-of-their-kind Oldsmobiles: a 1999 Cutlass and a 1996 Ciera.

After the Alero — signed by the workers who built it — rolled off the Lansing, Mich., assembly line, it went to the R.E. Olds Transportation Museum in Lansing and then to the GM Heritage Center outside Detroit.

Access to the auction is available to any automobile dealer registered with State Line Auto Auction, a member of the ServNet group of independent auctions.
