The C Platform designation had been introduced as early as 1931 and was used until 1984. From at least 1941, when the B-body followed suit in adopting the C-body's pioneering lower and wider runningboardless bodystyle, it may be viewed as a stretched version of the GM B platform. After 1984, the platform was replaced by the GM D platform and continued in production to 1996. The C-body was used for the Pontiac Series 24/29 Torpedo, Oldsmobile 90, the Buick Roadmaster, Super and 1958 Limited, the LaSalle Series 52, and all mid-level Cadillacs starting with the Cadillac Series 355.
