Look what I spotted today on ebay. A 403-V8 powered, opera-lamped luxocruiser. I’ve always liked these freshly downsized late ’70s C-bodies, and this one appears to be a really nice example.
You know I love Oldsmobiles, in fact this is at least the fourth Ninety-Eight I’ve written up since last summer. But I had to share this one; it’s so nice.
According to the seller: “Color #61 Light Camel Beige, black top and interior.Originally a Texas car, clean underside, solid body.”
“Runs and drives great, velvet smooth 403 V8. Just completed 1400 mile trip from Wisconsin to Florida, performed great, cold AC with cruise set 75 mph.”
“Factory options: rare custom chrome wheels (which are pictured in the 1978 Oldsmobile brochure), 403 V8, 8-track, 6-way power driver and passenger seats. Car gently driven & lovingly cared for.”
“It shows impressively although there are some flaws. You won’t be disappointed with this car. It is garaged around the clock. Please reach out any time with questions. Thanks for looking!”
As modern cars get further and further away from the traditional three box American sedan, survivors like this one look better to me by the day.
Anyway, If you feel the same, you have six days to bid on this gem.
