DESCRIPTION

This 1981 Oldsmobile Delta 88 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 Pastel Waxberry 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. So while the total mileage of the car is currently undefined, you can tell it has spent plenty of time being cared for correctly. This one wears its bright headlight bezels and factory wire wheel covers with distinction. And the full-length tan pinstripe coordinates with the correct Royale vinyl roof. There's even a special hood ornament that announces the unique powerplant for this Olds.



The tan interior also has the kind of velour pattern that brings up the same nostalgia as the exterior. Part of the appeal of these large sedans is that they can seat up to six with ease, but fold down the front armrest, and it provides you with individual comfort. This is a time capsule done right, and so it can still easily eat away the miles with great features like a tilt steering column, a Delco AM/FM stereo, cruise control, and cold-blowing air conditioning.



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 a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs.



This is the classic full-size sedan that's distinct for its survivor style and the V8 that powers it. So if you like something that's both unique and affordable, don't miss this diesel Olds. Call today!!!
