Vehicle Description

This 1972 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale has to be one of the coolest and least expensive ways to get attention at the survivor car shows. It's a two-owner highly original vehicle that has everything from its numbers-matching V8 to the unmistakable cool look of a hardtop sedan.

Here's an icon that defined the 1970s. Big four-door sedans that still retained the pillarless hardtop style have their own stratosphere of cool that's always expanding. And these Delta 88s had a terrific look this year with distinct quad headlight design, a front bumper that hugs all those curves, and a rear bumper that integrated into the deign so nicely. When it's presented in the original factory-applied Covert Beige paint with green vinyl top, then this is a great survivor (of course, it also doesn't hurt that this car is a close ringer for Evil Dead movie fans.) This Olds has been under the same owner since 2009, and has only had one owner since. That's how you get a respected survivor where the under 13k mileage is believed to be original. There are some signs of age, but a car like this is becoming a rarity as most were used up as family haulers and salesman callers. Instead, here's one that's complete with all its trim, factory hubcaps, badging, and everything else that makes it an attention-grabbing survivor.

The green roof is a preview of the interior, which is always a nice vintage premium touch. The intricate button top seats greet you when you open any door. It has the terrific look of originality, and the way the comfy cloth still looks great supports the low mileage claim. The wood paneling, doors, carpets, and dash are a marvel at how well they present today. The Royale designation makes it a top end luxury machine from Oldsmobile, so even if you fill this sedan with up to five family and friends with you, there's still a zip code's worth of space and comfort. Plus, the fold-down armrest up front gives you individual comfort when cruising solo. You sit behind the factory steering wheel, and the driver-focused instruments encapsulates with its luxury. It's a true time capsule like experience.

Under the hood is the golden block of a proper Olds motor. This 350 cubic-inch Rocket V8 is original to the car, and it really has the factory look - right down to the Keep Your GM Car All GM factory decal. While it's a survivor, there has also been proper maintenance to keep this motor running smooth. Plus, it has the right torque to make moving this large sedan an easy proposition. Add in power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and the original three-speed automatic transmission, and we bet you're already imagining all the places you will go in this luxurious and powerful Olds.

When you have a survivor that's this cool and this affordable, you know it won't be hanging around our showroom for long. Call now!
