This sweet ride is the first year of the eighth generation Olds 88. The overall dimensions shrunk for the new body styles, but head room, and rear seat legroom both increased!
The odometer shows 33,000 miles and some change. Given the obvious respray and known history we are pretty confident saying that is 133,000 miles and some change. The current family has owned the vehicle for 30 years and says they are the second owner.
A sticker on the AC components reveals it was converted to R-134 refrigerant in 2013. The AC is not currently blowing cold but shouldn't take much more than a basic charge. The car has spent most of a it's time in the garage the last 30 years and was one of many cars in the stable.
The interior is in good shape and takes you right back to the 70s. The drivability is what one would expect and there are not any worrisome clinks or clanks! This is a fantastic entry into the classic car market, or a way to relive some memories! The standard engine option was a V6, but this bad boy does has the highest engine option available with the 403 V8. This is easiest to identify via the oil filler towards the front of the engine vs on the valve cover as is traditional GM.
This 1977 Oldsmobile Delta 88 is offered by the St. Louis sales staff and can be seen in full detail on our website. Our listing all include 100+ HD photos and a detailed video! GatewayClassicCars.com
