Oldsmobile Mechanical Pencil

Oldsmobile Futuramic ‘Floaty’ Mechanical Pencil
Circa 1950

We collect automotive related ‘Floaty’ pens & ‘Floaty’ pencils, and they are not as easy to find as one might expect. All were made in very limited quantities, and as one-time production runs, and due to limited production and attrition many such as this one are quite rare. Made generally for company promotions or for some to be sold to generate a little income. This one was  given away for promotional purposes. ‘Floaty’ pens and pencils are named as such since they have an item in the upper barrel that is encased in liquid  and the item “Floats” back & forth in the liquid –  in this case the Oldsmobile floats smoothly as you move the pencil up or down. These are best for display as we do in our collection of over 70 ‘Floaty’ pens &  pencils.
