Beschreibung

If you like the aggressive lines of the fastback body style as well as the spacious luxury of a full-size automobile, think Delmont. If you've never heard of a Delmont, you're not alone. It's one of those forgotten models from the Sixties, because Oldsmobile only built it for two short years – 1967 and '68. Production Figures for the 1968 Oldsmobile Delmont Eighty-Eight Convertible 2 dr. 6 P: only 2.812!

So Delmonts are unusual cars, and as a result, they're rarely seen in today's collector-car market, and almost never at car shows.

The Delmont 88 only lasted two years in the Oldsmobile lineup, but it was certainly a memorable run, out of all proportion to its build totals.

Aesthetically, the shape of this distinctive looking automobile is hard to beat. Sitting on a 123-inch wheelbase, while it may be big and long at 217.8 inches overall, its stunning form is captivating. The way the rear quarter panel rises up to meet the sloping roofline is Sixties-era automotive design at its very best.
