Stk. 2228 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88
If you were shopping for an Oldsmobile rag-top in the '70s you probably noticed something unusual at the dealers. Virtually none of the brochures for the Delta 88 showed a convertible model. The de-emphasis was deliberate. Olds decided that customers would clamor for a model that they deemed hard to find. It worked – they sold over 7,000 soft tops in 1973. This 1973 Delta 88 Royale convertible has only 52,688 original miles and has been proudly cared for by the current owner for the past 36 years. It's factory Cranberry Red Metallic exterior is in good condition and a new power convertible top was installed in 2005. The burgundy vinyl interior is all-original and in very good condition. Our convertible is well optioned with an AM/FM/8-track stereo (works), power tinted windows and power seats. There is an icon under the hood - the venerable L75 455 4V Olds Rocket V8. This motor was a mainstay in the full-sized Oldsmobile line for many years. The 1973 version of this engine produced 215HP and 350lb/ft of torque. Our 455 appears to be completely original and is backed by GM's 3-speed Hydro-Matic transmission. The suspension is equipped with power steering, power disc/drum brakes and a 3.08:1 differential. Factory 15” wheels sport full wheel covers. There are very few Oldsmobiles around like this matching numbers Delta 88 Royale classic. It belongs in your Olds garage.
