For Sale: 1972 Oldsmobile Delta 88 in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars Houston Showroom is proud to present this sweet 1972 Oldsmobile Delta 88 convertible. If you're looking for classic land yacht styling with a potent modern power train, look no further, as the owner has given this bad boy a "lil sumpin sumpin"! Not only was the drivetrain upgraded, but so was the suspension and the interior, while leaving the exterior with a little patina effect to keep onlookers guessing when you blow past them. Its original 350 CID V8 was replaced by a 5.3L V8, which is backed by a 4-speed automatic transmission, and both have just under 600 miles on them. The idea behind this road warrior was to create a classy ride that maintains its old school vibe but give it modern amenities and bumped up performance vs. the way it rolled off the assembly line. Broken Bolt Garage was tapped for the bulk of the work on the mechanicals (including the powertrain), and they have done a nice job. A custom fabricated cold air intake feeds into the aluminum intake, and the aluminum heads, aftermarket cam and pistons, along w/stainless shorty headers and dual exhaust all add up to "this ain't no slouch". A giant aluminum radiator was installed, and it's augmented with twin electric fans to aid in the cooling. The front suspension was updated as well, and is now outfitted with adjustable coilover shocks, so it handles much better than you'd expect out of a vintage land yacht. Inside, the interior was completely redone, and now features some classy red synthetic leather seating and fresh carpet, so it looks crisp and clean inside. A digital dash cluster was installed, along with a Double DIN head unit for entertainment delivery. The head unit features AM/FM/CD/XM/NAV, along with a backup camera, so you have plenty of modern functionality in your sound system. Since this is a Texas car, its owner added a new Vintage Air system to make it year-round road trip friendly. Drivers will appreciate the thick wood-rimmed steering wheel, which adds a nice touch to the driver's connection with the big '88. Additional features and options on this classy red '72 Oldsmobile Delta 88 include cold A/C, AM/FM/XM/CD/NAV radio, Automatic Convertible Top, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Radial Tires, Seat Belts, Tilt Steering, and Vinyl Interior.
