Delta 88 1965

Title Status --
Exterior Color Dark Emerald Green
Interior Color Green


With its long profile, cool metallic paint, big V8 power, and A/C interior, this 1965 Oldsmobile Delta 88 coupe hits all the right notes for a cool cruising classic. That's why this sharp-looking hardtop is an irresistible deal.

A proper Olds gives you the feeling of premium, and this one really gets it right from the first impression. The Dark Emerald Green is a more recent professional application, and so it shines like a jewel. Seriously. It really has the radiant look that loves the sunshine. It brings out the style of the well-creased sheetmetal. In fact, speaking of the body, take a moment to appreciate what this one has to offer. The wraparound chrome bumpers cleanly integrate into the extra wide front and rear panels; the hardtop design has a sporty silhouette; and sheetmetal that has an athletic kick-up integrated into the rear fender. This is '60s styling at its best. And you even get great period-correct performance upgrades with the large exhaust tips and 15-inch Cragar polished wheels.

The full green interior is a harmonizing color with the exterior, and the comfy velour custom fabric is both distinct and inviting. So you'll happily roll down all the windows on this pillarless hardtop so that people can get a good view at this clean and custom setup. And since this is a full size Olds, you've got enough room to just bring them all along, too! The fold-down front armrest, dual-spoke steering wheel, and round gauge cluster all are part of the factory package designed to always give the driver individual comfort. There's even a power front seat. It has a nice classic presentation, right down the AM radio that's still cranking out tunes. And while this was a factory air conditioning car, it's now got a newer compressor blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant. So feel free to roll down all the windows and hit the open road.

Under the hood is a 1965-correct 425 cubic-inch V8. But you can also instantly tell they made some nice investments in upgrades. The motor now has a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock 455 intake, and classic Offenhauser finned valve covers. Plus, there's an upgraded aluminum radiator to help keep this whole package running cool. It's a strong motor that delivers some serious power. But as a true Olds, you'll particularly like that this is set up to be a smooth all-around coupe. The three-speed automatic transmission, power steering power brakes, and deep treads on the wide radial tires work in harmony to give you that fine cruiser feeling.

Complete with owner's manual, when a classic cruiser that is this distinct, comfortable, and powerful is also so obtainable, you know you need to hurry on this deal. Call today!!!
