For Sale: 1967 Oldsmobile Delta 88 in Macedonia, Ohio

Vehicle Description

Quite likely the finest of its kind in the world. One of only 1124 built. Extensive restoration to extremely high standards. Strong 425 cubic inch V8, automatic, power steering and brakes, and more. Pay more for the best and you'll never regret it.It's no light thing to claim something is the best of its kind, but if this isn't the finest 1967 Oldsmobile Delta 88 convertible in the world, I'd be shocked. Someone has spent a staggering amount of money restoring this car to an incredibly high level and it shows in every detail and corner of the car. The vivid Spanish Red paint seems almost too glossy to touch, as if it's still wet. The bodywork underneath is so straight, even the factory couldn't have done a better job. And it all lines up beautifully, with doors that close with a light click rather than a heavy slam. Someone was clearly sweating the details here. Oldsmobile's mid-sized Delta 88 is much more car than a 442, especially since it was permitted to carry the biggest engine on the roster-Oldsmobile's potent 425 cubic inch V8. But the dimensions give the big Delta 88 a lean look, much more muscle car than grandpa's cruiser. Check out the pointed noise, the muscular quarter panels, and the flared fenders, all of which suggest speed and performance. For and Olds, they went light on the chrome, although the bright wheel arch moldings are a nice touch, and, of course, it's all in show condition. And check out those cool taillights tucked under the deck lid, the subtle black pinstripes, and minimalist badging. This car stands out without making a lot of noise about it.The black interior has been fully restored to stock specs, with a front bench that does a pretty good impersonation of buckets. Oldsmobile's familiar round pods hold the gauges, with secondary switches down low, including the cool pushbutton heater controls. They didn't take many liberties with the interior, as it still carries the original AM radio, but given the way this car sounds, the radio probably won't be a priority anyway. You'll note it does carry a power antenna and a power convertible top, which raises and lowers itself easily and stows under a matching black boot. New carpets and protective rubber mats help keep things tidy and the original seat belts are in great shape so no worries about safety. The massive trunk is neatly upholstered and has plenty of space for all your gear, no matter how far you're going.With a 425 cubic inch V8 under the hood, performance is always effortless. Fully rebuilt, the engine starts easily and idles nicely, as well as delivering that huge wave of easy torque that makes the Rocket engines famous. Rated at 385 horsepower and nearly 500 pounds of torque, it makes the big Delta 88 ragtop feel like it weighs 800 pounds less than it does, so you get the performance of a muscle car without the muscle car shortcomings-this car still delivers a grown-up luxury feel. The engine bay is highly detailed with a few chrome dress-up items to really make it sparkle. You'll also note power steering and power brakes are included, making this car easy for anyone to drive. The undercarriage is very clean and nicely finished, with solid floors and no signs of rust or rot in its history. The TH400 3-speed automatic is virtually indestructible and clicks off positive shifts and immediate downshifts when you want to dip into those endless reserves of torque. With 3.23 gears out back, it's a relaxed cruiser and the famous Oldsmobile ride is 100% intact here. A Flowmaster dual exhaust system gives it a nice rumble that's definitely more muscle than luxury, and it crouches on a set of Cragar SS mags with staggered 235/75/15 front and 285/70/15 rear radials for the perfect stance.Documentation includes the original owner's manual and convertible top booklet.Look closely at this car-you probably never considered a Delta 88 before but this car has you thinking about it. It's just beautifully finished and delivers the kind of performance you thought was only reserved for the 442. Stand out at any show and enjoy the benefits of Oldsmobile's commitment to luxury and performance, and give us a call today!Harwood Motors always recommends and welcomes personal or professional inspections of any vehicle in our inventory prior to purchase.
