4610 Pet Lane
This 1967 Oldsmobile Delta 88 convertible represents an interesting era in all the best ways. GM's rocket division had outstretched styling for its full-sized offerings, and you even got a larger V8 than the 4-4-2. So when this history is nicely presented on a bright red classic drop-top, we know there are plenty of folks who take notice.
The big Oldsmobile knew how to own the road. The front end has an intimidating triple-point style that even the front bumper contours to meet. It has an long profile that almost looks like an ocean wave with all the curves you see from headlight to taillights. Plus, this has an overall feeling of quality with panels that line up nicely, doors that close with confidence, glass that remains clean, and trim that complete and bright. It's all wrapped in a later application that's close to Oldsmobile's Spanish Red. The glossy paint goes looks quite nice against the newer white convertible top to give this one the same appeal as a Coca-Cola bottle. The Delta was the top of the 88 line, and the convertible was the most expensive style, so you know this one is rare. So it's especially notable to find one that is both this nice and this complete.
While we like the way this one looks with the roof up, with the flip of a switch, it powers down to reveal the factory-correct red interior. There's just something special about a bright red convertible with a darker red interior. And the matching convertible boot helps complete this exceptional color package. There has been a solid investment inside so that the seats, doors, dash, carpet, sun visors, and more all have a deep color and a fresh feeling. There are even nice details like black floor mats that hide the dirt while also giving you the classic Olds 88 logo. This really plays the part of a luxury Olds with two wide rows of benches to give people plenty of room to spread out. But the front armrest and power seat mean the driver always gets to dial-in an individual level of comfort. The dual-spoke steering wheel gives you a clear view to the full dash and sporty round gauge package. There's even a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner to give you upgraded driving music. You also have provisions for power windows and R134a air condition (these will need servicing.) So you can enjoy a value-priced convertible today, and it leaves room in the budget for you to have the ideal combo of power windows, a power convertible top, and a factory A/C convertible whenever you're ready.
The standard engine in up-market Delta 88 was a 425 cubic-inch V8. This is an era-correct block, and you can see they have spent time making sure this has a correct and clean presentation. So you'll love everything from the Super Rocket air topper to the GM Rochester four-barrel carburetor. Olds motors of this era were known for their hardy construction, and the big V8 fires up readily. It gives plenty of torque to confidently pull away from every stoplight. This is a luxury cruising convertible, and so they gave it a recent front end realignment to make sure it continues upholding that feeling. Plus, there are easy cruising features like a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and cruise control.
Complete with service manuals, you don't see too many Oldsmobiles like this anymore. So when it's offered at an affordable price, your opportunity at something this distinctive won't last long. Call today!!!
