(2002 - 2004)
Intrigue Final 500
Intrigue was the first model to be phased out by Olds. The last one rolled off the line in June 2002.
Aurora Final 500
Second in line to be phased out was Aurora. The V-6 model ended production in June 2002, but the last V-8 came off the line in May 2003 (some sources state March 2003 for the V-8).
Bravada Final 500
Third to be phased out was Bravada. The final one was manufactured in January 2004.
Silhouette Final 500 (actually Final 360)
Next in line was the Silhouette minivan. The last Silhouette was made in March 2004.
There were actually only 360 made because the plant had run out of production capacity due to fleet orders for vans on the same assembly line.
Unlike the other Olds Final 500 models, the Silhouettes were not issued the medallions as intended. A few did get their medallions by asking a favor of Olds Product Manager Douglas L. Stott (one of his final acts at Oldsmobile). It was said there was a box with all of the unissued medallions. Requests for owners medallions late 2012 were met with "we do not know where the box is now" The reasoning behind this was that the purist collectors would take exception to the medallion stating No. xxx / 500 instead of xxx / 360 that were all that were produced of the Final 500s. By the time Olds found that only 360 made it off the assembly line it was too late to place an order for the correct wording on a new set of badges.
Alero Final 500
The very last Oldsmobile -ever- was the Alero, which rolled of the Lansing assembly line April 29th 2004. The last Alero was the 35,229,218th vehicle built by Americas oldest car brand since Ransom E. Olds established the marque in 1897.
