This 1967 Oldsmobile Delta 88 convertible represents an interesting
era in all the best ways. GM's rocket division had outstretched
styling for its full-sized offerings, and you even got a larger V8
than the 4-4-2. So when this history is nicely presented on a
bright red classic drop-top, we know there are plenty of folks who
The big Oldsmobile knew how to own the road. The front end has an
intimidating triple-point style that even the front bumper contours
to meet. It has an long profile that almost looks like an ocean
wave with all the curves you see from headlight to taillights.
Plus, this has an overall feeling of quality with panels that line
up nicely, doors that close with confidence, glass that remains
clean, and trim that complete and bright. It's all wrapped in a
later application that's close to Oldsmobile's Spanish Red. The
glossy paint goes looks quite nice against the newer white
convertible top to give this one the same appeal as a Coca-Cola
bottle. The Delta was the top of the 88 line, and the convertible
was the most expensive style, so you know this one is rare. So it's
especially notable to find one that is both this nice and this
While we like the way this one looks with the roof up, with the
flip of a switch, it powers down to reveal the factory-correct red
interior. There's just something special about a bright red
convertible with a darker red interior. And the matching
convertible boot helps complete this exceptional color package.
There has been a solid investment inside so that the seats, doors,
dash, carpet, sun visors, and more all have a deep color and a
fresh feeling. There are even nice details like black floor mats
that hide the dirt while also giving you the classic Olds 88 logo.
This really plays the part of a luxury Olds with two wide rows of
benches to give people plenty of room to spread out. But the front
armrest and power seat mean the driver always gets to dial-in an
individual level of comfort. The dual-spoke steering wheel gives
you a clear view to the full dash and sporty round gauge package.
There's even a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner to give you upgraded
driving music. You also have provisions for power windows and R134a
air condition (these will need servicing.) So you can enjoy a
value-priced convertible today, and it leaves room in the budget
for you to have the ideal combo of power windows, a power
convertible top, and a factory A/C convertible whenever you're
The standard engine in up-market Delta 88 was a 425 cubic-inch V8.
This is an era-correct block, and you can see they have spent time
making sure this has a correct and clean presentation. So you'll
love everything from the Super Rocket air topper to the GM
Rochester four-barrel carburetor. Olds motors of this era were
known for their hardy construction, and the big V8 fires up
readily. It gives plenty of torque to confidently pull away from
every stoplight. This is a luxury cruising convertible, and so they
gave it a recent front end realignment to make sure it continues
upholding that feeling. Plus, there are easy cruising features like
a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes,
and cruise control.
Complete with service manuals, you don't see too many Oldsmobiles
like this anymore. So when it's offered at an affordable price,
your opportunity at something this distinctive won't last long.
