1970 Oldsmobile Delta 88
1970 Oldsmobile Delta 88
Ransom Eli Olds (June 3, 1864 – August 26, 1950) was a pioneer of the American automotive industry, after whom the Oldsmobile and REO brands were named. He claimed to have built his first steam car as early as 1887 and his first gasoline-powered car in 1896. The first stationery assembly line and its basic concept is credited to Olds, who used it to build the first mass-produced automobile, the Oldsmobile Curved Dash, beginning in 1901.
For consignment a clean well utilized Olds Delta 88 all the way back from 1970. A four door with a vinyl top this car measures in at a whopping 219” long. Typical square and rectangle design for the new decade, this car is the definition of that platform.
This lengthy steel slab sided car with good gaps, presentable but slightly wavy sides and Burnished Gold paint in fair condition showing some loss of luster. Chrome and brite work is good, with some very slight pitting, and light staining. The spacious trunk is in good condition, and has the original felt liner that shows some staining. Standard Oldsmobile hub caps are seen all around.
A gold velour with button tufted inserts and smooth gold vinyl bolsters in a split bench in front, and bench in the rear stretches from door to door. The front seat has a major split at the seam of the broadcloth and vinyl bolster. Doors panels are a mixture of molded plastic, faux woodgrain, and the matching gold vinyl of the seats. Crank window handles are seen within these panels. Looking to the square/rectangle design dash, one sees a mixture of the faux woodgrain, black and gold molded plastic, and a padded vinyl dash pad also in gold. All of these surfaces are very clean and wear free. An aftermarket radio and a stick-on digital clock which covers the original clock is noted. Gold carpet covers the floors and presents clean.
A 350ci Rocket V8 with a Rochester 2-barrel carburetor will get this mass down the road quickly, and coupled with the 3-speed TH400 automatic transmission, gas mileage will keep money in your pocket.
The undercarriage shows some surface rust, and plenty of patina paint and metal.
A 1970 classic with plenty of comfort, and space for passengers and all their belongings (like the lounge chair, couch, console TV…tongue in cheek) in the large trunk. A few faults on the interior, but otherwise in fair condition.
