The Delta 88 is a full-size car that has an exceptionally long lineage, sold and produced by Oldsmobile from 1949 until 1999. From 1950 to 1974, the 88 was the division's top-selling model every year, making it an image leader for Oldsmobile. By 1965, the 6th generation Delta 88 was restyled with a fastback-style roofline and the 425 cubic-inch Super Rocket V-8 and Turbo-Hydramatic automatic transmission. For the 1967 model, GM also rolled out a three-piece grille, split dual headlamps, and front disc brakes, all present on this example.
This quality Delta 88 Holiday Coupe sports excellent original light tan paint throughout, with a matching white vinyl top for a very clean look. The body panels are sharp, the panel gaps are proper, and the condition of the original paint certainly supports the reported 44,000 original miles represented by the consignor. All the chrome is beautiful and original, with clear lenses and badging throughout. The original bench seat interior is in fine shape, with clean stock carpets and mats in place. Theres room for six in the spacious cabin and, with woodgrain trim throughout, this car is truly a pleasure to show off and drive.
The numbers-matching 425 cubic-inch V-8 sits proudly in a clean and correct engine bay, and sports a mild cam, with Edelbrock heads and roller rockers as well a dual 4bbl carbs added during rebuild. It breathes through a Flowmaster exhaust, which runs quietly but can bark a bit when poked. The car rolls on custom 18 front and 20 rear Budnik wheels that fill up the arched wheel wells perfectly. This fine 88 is mechanically sound from top to bottom and is ready to take the whole family on a fast and comfortable road trip. Oldsmobiles are always popular with knowledgeable collectors, and a truly fortunate bidder will take this fine example home today.
