1965 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight Holiday Hardtop
1965 Olds Delta 88Engine. Original 425 starts first time, every time. I pulled the engine last year to replace gaskets, check rings, and to lay a fresh coat of paint on it. Aftermarket "Raptor" exhaust was installed a few years ago and sounds great.Transmission. No slips, no drips. 3 speed automatic. Does need a neutral safety switch.Suspension. Rebuilt front end last year with new ball joints, tie rods, bushings and shocks front and rear. This is a smooth ride.Body. The body is solid. The paint job is about a 10 footer, and if I end up keeping it I will repainted it next year. The doors, hood, and trunk all operate as intended. The hood could use a new set of hinges and springs. All of the glass is functional and in good condition.
Interior. Needs to be replaced. All of the seats serve their function, and they are actually comfortable. There are tears and stains. An interior light or two is inoperable. The lap belts work but a couple of them aren't original. The carpet is in the same condition. BUT...there is a new head liner and visors, so that's pretty cool.
I drive this car almost everyday during the summer. She's pretty cool. I don't need to sell this car. Just looking for something new to drive. With that said, I will also consider trades of the COOLvariety. Only classics will be accepted. So buy it or trade for it.
