1982 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royal Brougham 307 from North America
Bought my 82 Delta Royal Brougham last year. It's mostly been parked. Bought it for $400 dollars, and it came with carburetor problems. Changed the carb with a 600CFM Edelbrock. Still have to put on the auto choke. Also needs a belt and battery. Had a fuel leak somewhere, but can't find it.
Bought the car because it is very solid, and I like driving big cars. Has almost no rust on it or under it. I will probably regret the carb change, and go back to the original, because original was probably better; just needs to be rebuilt, but will get it going good for fairly cheap money, and drive it for a while.
I need a new hood ornament too, and the paint is faded and the clear coat peeling. Original paint.
Comfortable ride, cruiser, not fast, but glides once you get going.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
