Description: This 1970 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale is not what one would expect from an Oldsmobile of the era

This 1970 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale is not what one would expect from an Oldsmobile of the era. Let’s start with that rather spry blue paint instead of some dull earth-tone brown or green. Very attractive. Then there’s the 455 under the hood with (if we’re reading this right) 390 horsepower and 500-lbs.ft. of torque. To top it all off, from the photos it looks like it’s been treated to the same level of restoration one would lavish on a 4-4-2 or other A-body. From the seller’s description:

Near mint, super rare equipped with high compression 455 L-31, 4-barrel, ’70 OB-code Turbo Hydra-Matic 400 transmission, Strato bucket seats & sports console, a/c, ps, power disc brakes, AM radio, 8-track, clock, convenience group, anti-spin rear axle, astro blue color #25, Protect-o-plate, broadcast card. Condition is near mint driven regularly in good weather only – no rust – very high quality paint, body was stripped completely, most of the chrome and stainless has been restored to new.

Transmission professionally rebuilt and shifts perfectly, motor runs terrific, new exhaust is stock A pleasure to drive and reliable for long trips. 4-owner car with complete history since new. Very high quality car that has been completely sorted. Every component and light works correctly. New modern under dash stereo with MP3. Over $25,000 invested. You will never see another like this and I’m sure I will regret selling. 92K original miles. All original drivetrain including E-heads.

Hey people, in the summer of 1978 I bought a 2 door silver with black top black interior 1969 W-33 Delta 88 Royal, I started working at a service station as an apprentice mechanic when this Delta pulled up for fuel. The owners son knew I was looking for a car so he encouraged me to buy this boat and knowing this car he tells me it’s really fast and to come on out and have a look. Well I wanted a camaro or something so I wasnt very impressed. Walking up to it I noticed it had dual exhaust with 2 1/2 inch pipes. Hum I thought and popped the hood, the air cleaner lid was red as the engine and had a decal that wrote Oldsmobile Highway Patrol. Now I was really curious so asked the owner if I could test drive it. I went around the block burning rubber all the way and arrived at the station with a ear to ear smile.

After buying this car for only 250 $, one night on the highway I had this car up to 145 mph and it was still pulling strong but I remember the rear tires had cord showing on both sides and let off on the peddle before blowing the back end off and killing myself. I’m certaint this car was easy headed for 160+ mph judging by the acceleration and rpm still left.

It had 2.91 posi with L size tires those days. This car had the cop package known as the B09 or B07 option I forget which is correct.

It comes in 69 with a 455ci with C heads and the auto W30 cam, calibrated 4bbl and HD cooling and charging sys HD suspension and larger rear brakes, dual exhaust 2.5 inch with HD TH400 with a switch pich or variable pich as it can be called torq converter giving 1800/ 2600 rpm stall speed with 2. 91 gears non posi as standard equip. 390 Hp 500 lbs tq. At 4200 lbs I could run the 1/4 mile at 14.50 @ 98 mph but this Delta was at home on the highway, nothing could out accelerate me here, nothing ever did and a lot of powerfull cars in those days tried and died.

This car was really incredible for its day and I’m always looking for the right one now to buy,
