Delta 88 1985

Title Status --
Exterior Color Dark Chestnut Metall
Interior Color Saddle


This 1985 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale is quite a unique machine. It\'s a well-preserved/presented survivor with the rare diesel V8 under the hood. It makes for an affordable classic where you can get people talking about both the level of originality and the fuel you burn.

This is the era of the popular square sedans. And so it\'s a unique time where we bet the confidently flat front end of this Olds brings up a specific memory for you. And the reason why this particular one can have so much nostalgia attached to it is because of how original it is. In fact, the Dark Chestnut Metallic is not only a great 1980s hue, but also the factory-correct color shows the right signs of being the original factory application. And you just don\'t see them in this kind of complete condition anymore. It\'s a comprehensive appearance that has the appropriate aged-in style while still giving a nice metallic shine. So while the total mileage of the car is currently undefined, you can tell it has spent plenty of time being cared for correctly. You see this added care in the clean glass, smooth sheet metal, and good chrome bumpers. And as a premium Royale, there are nice premium details, like the full-length tan pinstripe coordinates with the full vinyl roof. There\'s even a special hood ornament that announces the unique powerplant for this Olds.

The tan interior coordinates with the exterior accents, and it also has the kind of velour pattern that brings up the same nostalgia as the exterior. You even have nice classic details like the working dome light package and plenty of premium wood-like trim. Part of the appeal of these large sedans is that they can seat up to six with ease. Everyone stays comfortable thanks to a long list of features like power windows, power locks, an AM/FM/cassette stereo, and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. But no matter how many people are along for the ride, the driver also is a proper priority. That\'s why you have a fold-down armrest and power-adjusting seat.

Under the hood is a 350 cubic-inch V8, but not necessarily the kind you were expecting. This is from the few years when diesel power was available to Oldsmobile. The engine bay is honest but also well-maintained. That\'s why it fires up with ease, and so you\'ll be able to take this to your events to show off. Plus, the high torque nature of a diesel makes it nice for a big cruising sedan. And a car like this was really made for the open road. You have all the right comfy driving features, like power steering, power brakes, front discs, and cruise control. There\'s even a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-ready overdrive.

The sale comes complete with the owner\'s manual and warranty card. This is the classic full-size sedan that\'s distinct for its survivor style, loaded features, and the V8 that powers it. So if you like something that\'s unique, comfortable, and affordable, don\'t miss this diesel Olds. Call today!!!
