For Sale: 1985 Oldsmobile Delta 88 in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

Full-size loaded luxury is a rarity these days, and so this affordable 1985 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale Brougham has a very alluring style. V8 power, a loaded A/C interior, and the space to carry everyone and their luggage is all part of this well-presented sedan's total package.


The classic shade of white looks good on a true classic like this, and that's why it should be no surprise that it's the factory-correct color. But this also shows all the right signs of being the factory-original application. It retains a well-respected finish, and in fact, the odometer is believed to reflect the full actual mileage (averaging under 750 miles annually.) In fact, most of the defects you'll find just come more from age than mileage - like the usual areas with the trim around the bumpers and roof. And what you'll really appreciate is the premium style. The upper-level Brougham model means plenty of bright details like chrome bumpers, bright rockers, and wire wheel covers. Plus, the full-length pinstripe does a great job of showcasing the straightness of the sheet metal while also offering a preview of the interior color.


The upper-class Brougham makes for a desirably luxurious interior. It has pillow-top seating, and low mileage means little seat time. So it's both attractive and comfy. There's plenty of legroom to sit six people comfortably across two wide benches. But a premium car also coddles the drive with exclusivity. So you can fold down the front for the ideal individual comfort. The tilt steering column gives you a good view of the full gauge package. And it's an easy reach to all the best features, like power windows, power locks, cruise control, the AM/FM/cassette stereo, and cold-blowing air conditioning. It's exceptionally preserved right down to the working dome lights and key buzzer. And the huge trunk is ready for all the clubs for a foursome's golf trip.


Under the hood is a quite tidy 307 cubic inch V8. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, this is a true classic Olds Rocket motor. The V8 motor was a valuable piece to give this the right kind of torque to move it around with authority. That makes it a terrific cruiser... especially when paired with easy driving features like power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive.


Complete with the owner's manual, this is quite an attractive and loaded survivor. So if you want well-preserved old-school luxury for a terrific price, call today!
