The B-44 was a quick step away from Oldsmobile’s then-new naming system as this model should have been a "66" or "68" (the first digit signifying the body size and the second being the number of cylinders in the engine). As can be seen when viewing this ad at full size, major U.S. manufacturers were already devoting much of their output to defense needs even before Pearl Harbor. All auto production stopped at Olds on February 5, 1942 and ended the brief life of the beautiful B-44.
