1968 Olds. Delta 88


1968 Olds, Delta 88 4-door hardtop, 455ci. 3 speed auto. nice clean 51000 mile car, runs like a top, drove it almost 1000 miles this past weekend, Barrie, Hamilton, Burlington, and back up north! This car had a factory vinyl roof, but it was in poor shape, I've removed it and had the roof painted black instead, the moldings are all still in place should anyone prefer to put the vinyl back on! 4 new coils, new shocks, lower ball joints, idler arm, water pump, thermostat, rad cap, belts, this baby is ready to cruise! Asking $7500.00 Many thanks to Todd and Canadian Poncho for allowing this ad. I really enjoy your site!

An old friend of mine told me a long time ago, if you stumble upon a real good one, 9 times out of 10 its going to be green! The other time its blue, like my Pontiac, right Ted? Thanks for your comments George!

Still for sale, open to reasonable offers, would rather sell it than store it.

I've know this car since the original owner and now through the second and third owner. It has always been cared for and loved. It's the real thing.

She's a beauty!

I love musclecars, but the whole musclecar thing has been a little overdone, IMHO.  They are only one small part of what we used to drive.

This is a shining (literally) example of what a middle-class family would have driven back in the day and this is a particularly well-preserved example.

Personally I love these big old cruisers, they have a ride and feel that is unequaled in today's cars.  Yes, they don't handle all that well by today's standards, but they glide down the road with a feeling of comfort not available today, with the Euro-ride (i.e. you could feel a dime if you drove over it) so popular in today's cars.

This is really a treasure from the sixties that I hope somebody will enjoy and preserve as they are becoming a rarity.  Really hope that somebody doesn't want to customize or "rat" this one out, which is the disservice I see happening on a lot of 4-doors from the era.

Beautiful preserved example of a 4 door HT. I'd love it and leave it just as she sits.
