Description for Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight 1986

For sale, a 1986 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Regency. I bought it in August 2015 and had it shipped to me from Arizona. It is rust-free with 26,526 original miles and recently replaced tires. I was told that the car is unwrecked with original paint. The engine is a 3.8l, V6. I am the third owner.
I have only driven the car about 1500 miles since I got it. 350 of that was in one day to see how the car performed on a trip. The return was at night on an Interstate, and I certainly didn’t feel I was driving a 30-year old car. That being said, I don’t believe the car runs as smoothly as a 3.8l, V6 Oldsmobile is capable of running. My local mechanic says that the car probably needs more driving. I tend to agree. The more I drive it, the smoother it gets.
I have made several improvements to the car. Because of a leak, I replaced the Steering Gear (Manual and Power Rack & Pinion, worm & Ball Nut and Rack & Piston assemblies). I also replaced the Computer Chip, Electronic Control Module, Crankshaft Position Sensor, Mass Air Flow Sensor, Idle Air Control Valve, Calibrator Prom, Spark Plugs, transmission fluid and filter.
Since owning the car, I have noticed a few other details that I want to mention. The power antenna is up but doesn’t work, clock works but doesn’t keep time properly, the headliner has been replaced (good job although they didn’t do the visors and posts), the passenger windshield wiper seems to want to work but doesn’t and the driver’s window is unplugged.
My starting bid is with no reserve. You can see and drive the car locally. I hope you will. Please ask questions. I will answer as best I can. I am selling the car as is. The winning bidder can pick up the car or arrange for shipping. I have the title in hand. A deposit of $500 is due within 48 hours of the close of the auction through Paypal or by credit card and the balance is due by money order before the car leaves my home.
In summary, this is a shiny, original paint, unwrecked, 30 years old Oldsmobile with excellent tires that is rust-free with 26,526 miles on it. I have driven it very little. It doesn’t run as smoothly as I would like, but does run smoother than when I got it a year ago.
