Description for Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight 1975

YOU ARE BIDDING ON A VERY BEAUTIFUL 1975 OLDSMOBILE DELTA 88 ROYALE CONVERTIBLE!!! THIS ONE IS A TRUE ONE OWNER CAR WITH 79,000 RIGHT MILES ON IT!! IT HAS BEEN CAREFULLY PRESERVED AND IN AMAZING CONDITION!! I HAVE MANY MORE PICTURES AT COMPCARSMB.COM I ALSO HAVE ALL THE ORIGINAL DOCUMENTATION THAT CAME WITH THE CAR NEW. INCLUDING, OWNER'S MANUAL, WARRANTY FORMS, FACTORY BROCHURE, ORIGINAL BUILD SHEET, AND BOTH SETS OF ORIGINAL KEYS!! THIS OLDS WAS DELIVERED ON 3/8/75 WITH 8 MILES ON IT!! IT WAS OWNED THE ENTIRE TIME BY ONE MAN, AND HE PASSED RECENTLY AND I BOUGHT THIS CAR FROM HIS BROTHER. AGAIN, A WONDERFULLY PRESERVED OLDS!!!! I WILL GO OVER THIS CAR FROM TOP TO BOTTOM AND DESCRIBE EXACTLY WHAT I SEE!!!
WE CAN START WITH THE EXTERIOR COSMETICS OF THE CAR. AS YOU CAN SEE BY THE PICTURES, THE PAINT AND BODY ARE ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!!! THIS CAR HAS HAD 1 REPAINT SINCE 1975. IT IS NOT A 10,000 CONCOURS PAINTJOB, BUT IT IS A VERY HIGH QUALITY JOB THAT HAS BEEN WET SANDED AND BUFFED TO BRING THE PAINT TO THE HIGHEST POSSIBLE SHINE!! CAR HAD A FEW STONE CHIPS HERE AND THERE THAT WE HAD PROFESSIONALLY TOUCHED UP. IN MY VIEW I THINK THE PICKIEST OF PEOPLE WOULD BE COMPLETELY HAPPY WITH IT!! YOU WILL ALSO DISCOVER ONE VERY SLIGHT "LITE" SPOT ON THE REAR QUARTER THAT THEY "ALMOST" WENT THROUGH DURING THE SANDING AND BUFFING PROCESS. IT IS SO SMALL THAT YOU CAN COVER IT WITH YOUR PINKY!!! EVERYONE WHO SEES THIS CAR IN PERSON, RAVE ABOUT HOW BEAUTIFUL THIS PAINT IS!!!! ALSO, IF YOU LOOK AT ALL THE PICTURES I HAVE POSTED ON MY WEBSITE, YOU WILL SEE I TOOK CLOSEUPS OF ALL THE LOWER QUARTERS AND YOU WILL DISCOVER THAT THIS CAR IS FREE OF RUST!!!!! AS TO ALL THE CHROME AND BRIGHT WORK, I WOULD CALL MOST OF IT ACCEPTABLE, BUT THE PICKIEST OF PEOPLE MAY WANT TO CONSIDER REFINISHING THE BUMPERS AND THE TRIM PIECE BELOW THE TRUNK, WHERE THE GAS DOOR IS. THAT IS JUST IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR PERFECTION. I FIND IT ACCEPTABLE. AS YOU CAN SEE IN THE PICS, THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE REAR BUMPER HAS 2 SMALL DINGS IN IT. ALL THE REST OF THE TRIM AND BRIGHT WORK IS IN APPROPRIATE CONDITION FOR THE YEAR. HUBCAPS ARE REALLY NICE AS ARE THE TIRES!!! TOP IS EXCELLENT AS WELL!!! ALL GLASS IS CLEAN AND CLEAR WITH JUST THE SLIGHTEST OF WEAR ON JUST THE FRONT DRIVER WINDOW. VERY SLIGHT!! AND DON'T GET ME WRONG, THIS CAR IS SUPER NICE, BUT I LIKE TO POINT OUT EVEN THE LITTLEST OF THINGS THAT ONE WOULD NEED TO KNOW ABOUT, SO WE HAVE NO SURPRISES UPON ARRIVAL. MOST OF WHAT I MENTION DON'T EVEN REALLY NEED ATTENTION, UNLESS YOU ARE LOOKING TO MAKE IT A 10 POINT CAR.
NOW LET'S MOVE ON TO THE INTERIOR!!! IT THINK THE INTERIOR IS BEAUTIFULLY STUNNING!! THE RED AND WHITE INTERIOR IS REALLY SOMETHING TO LOOK AT!!!! THE DASH, SEATS, DOOR PANELS AND CARPET ARE ALL FREE OF STAINS, RIPS OR TEARS!! REALLY REALLY NICELY PRESERVED!!!!! THE STEERING WHEEL IS ALSO IN PERFECT CONDITION!!! ALL THE TRIM AND RUBBER ARE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, WITH EXCEPTION TO ONE OUTSIDE WINDOW RUBBER, IT'S JUST MISSING A PORTION OF IT. REALLY EASY FIX!! YOU CAN TELL THAT THE CAR WAS GARAGED KEPT AND THAT SURPRISINGLY, THE SUN HAS NOT TAKEN A TOLL ON THE INTERIOR!! SO CLOSE TO PERFECTION IT'S AMAZING!! FLOOR MATS ARE NEW AND PERFECT AS WELL!!! ALL THE WOOD GRAIN AND SWITCHES AND KNOBS ON THE DASH ARE ALSO IN NEAR PERFECT CONDITION!! OPEN THE DOOR AND IT'S LIKE GOING BACK IN TIME!!!
AND MY FAVORITE PART OF THIS CAR........THE ENGINE BAY!! HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU FOUND A BEAUTIFUL CLASSIC ON THE OUTSIDE, ONLY TO OPEN THE HOOD TO FIND 42 YEARS OF CRUD AND BUILD UP?? I HAD THE COMPLETE ENGINE BAY RESTORED BACK TO ORIGINAL CONDITION!! EVERY HOSE HAS BEEN TOUCHED, EVERY WIRE CLEANED, THE BLOCK PAINTED BACK TO IT'S ORIGINAL LUSTER, AND NEW ENGINE STICKERS!!! IT'S IMPRESSIVE TO OPEN THAT HOOD AND SEE THAT SUPER CLEAN 455 V8 STARING AT YOU!!! JUST CHECK OUT ALL THE PICS, YOU WILL CERTAINLY BE IMPRESSED!!!!!
TRUNK HAS ALSO BEEN GONE THROUGH. NO SIGN OF RUST, PANS REFINISHED AND NEW CORRECT MATTING!! ORIGINAL SPARE AND JACK ARE ALL THERE!!! NOTHING LIKE OPENING THAT TRUNK AND SEEING A SUPER CLEAN FRESH LOOK!!!
AS TO THE MECHANICS OF THIS CAR, I WENT THROUGH AND MADE SURE EVERYTHING WORKS AS IT SHOULD!! A/C IS COLD, WINDOWS ALL WORK, CRUISE WORKS, FACTORY AM/8 TRACK WORKS, TILT WHEEL NO PROBLEM, WIPERS WORK (SOMETIMES A WIGGLE OF THE INSIDE SWITCH IS REQUIRED), HEADLIGHTS, HORN, ETC, ALL GOOD!!!! ALSO HAS 6 WAY POWER SEATS AND THEY ALL SEEM TO WORK PROPERLY!!! ONE THING, THE POWER TOP SWITCH MUST HAVE WENT OUT AT SOME POINT AND THEY REPLACED IT WITH AN AFTERMARKET SWITCH, WHICH THEY MOUNTED ON THE LOWER DASH. THIS IS A CAR THAT YOU JUST BUY AND IS READY TO DRIVE!!!!
AND THE POWER TRAIN, IT IS ALL GOOD!!! FACTORY 455 V8, WHICH WAS AN OPTION, FIRES UP GREAT, NO SMOKING, AND RUNS PERFECT. WHEN THE CAR SITS, YOU WILL DISCOVER A COUPLE OF VERY SMALL DROPS OF OIL. WHEN I DROVE THE CAR EVERYDAY, I DIDN'T SEE THAT. CAR SAT NOW FOR NEARLY 2 WEEKS AND I SEE A COUPLE OF DROPS. TYPICAL AND TO BE EXPECTED, BUT VERY MINOR!!! TRANSMISSION SHIFTS PERFECT!!! AND THE RIDE AND DRIVE?? IT IS AWESOME!! I REALLY FORGOT JUST HOW NICE THESE OLD CARS RIDE!!! SMOOTH AND VERY QUIET!!!!!
LET ME ALSO MENTION THAT THE ORIGINAL BASE MSRP ON THIS DELTA WAS $5,359.30. THE FINAL MSRP AFTER OPTIONS WAS $7.550.50!!!! THAT IS NEARLY $2,200 WORTH OF OPTIONS!! THAT IS AN AMAZING AMOUNT OF OPTIONS FOR 1975!!! YOU HAVE REALLY FOUND A VERY SPECIAL CAR HERE!! YOU CAN ALSO BID WITH CONFIDENCE, AS I HAVE 100% FEEDBACK ON ALL MY CAR DEALS!! I KNOW HOW TO DESCRIBE ONE, AND AS YOU CAN SEE, I MADE AN EFFORT TO MENTION ALL FLAWS THAT I COULD FIND!! BUT TO RECAP, THIS IS ONE VERY NICE, VERY WELL PRESERVED, AND VERY RARE DELTA CONVERTIBLE. THE BUY IT NOW IS FAIR, BUT FEEL FREE TO CALL OR EMAIL WITH ANY OFFERS OR QUESTIONS!!! WE ARE ALSO ONLY 5 MINUTES FROM THE MYRTLE BEACH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, AND WE OFFER A FREE SHUTTLE SERVICE!! FLY IN, DRIVE HOME!! THANKS AND GOOD LUCK!!! AND I MAY CONSIDER TRADES, BUT YOU WOULD HAVE TO COME HERE IN PERSON WITH THAT TRADE.
