1932 Pontiac

From John Gunnell’s book, 75 Years of Pontiac Oakland: “Pontiac would see many revisions during 1932, the first being the January elimination of Oakland, which the trade journals made clear was a name change only. As MoToR so bluntly put it, “The Oakland Eight is now known as the Pontiac Eight”. Two other changes were equally drastic. One merged Oakland’s manufacturing operations with those of Chevrolet. The second established a new Buick-Olds-Pontiac sales Company (B-O-P), with headquarters in Detroit and regional offices in  New York, Chicago, Atlanta and San Francisco. This amounted to a total corporate realignment, in effect making three G.M. passenger car divisions out of five. They were Chevrolet, B-O-P and Cadillac-Lasalle.”
