RE: 1974 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale Convertible in Bayfield, Ont


FWIW, the 350 is just fine for this car.  People seem to forget that there used to be full size cars running around with straight 6s in them.  They were fine to move the car around but not overly exciting to drive.  A full size 350 Olds ragtop wouldn't burn up the drag strip, but would be just fine for cruising with the top down on a sunny summer day - exactly what it was designed for.

The real bane on these cars is that they are from the mid seventies, when the industry moved away from muscle cars, but most people in the collector/hobby car market dreamed of owning muscle cars, and thus did not develop an appreciation for these large solid boulevard cruisers.  Thus, IMHO, the market has always been soft for them.

I agree that it seems like a good price on a nice car - just needs to find the right buyer.

I like the colour combo on your buddy's car better as well.

Just to show an example of another less commonly seen colour for these cars

This one is at a small car lot in Winnipeg - asking price is 5,000 as is or 10,000 safetied ( that price is with the floor rust fixed)IMG_1492.JPGIMG_1493.JPG
