Rocket V8: 1972 Oldsmobile Delta 88

Headlights are the eyeballs of automobiles -- and in the world of those eyeballs there are a few strange looking examples.  For instance, the Morgan Aero8 has a cross eyed look and the Mazda RX-7 has always looked sleepy with pop-ups, but this next car is seriously confused.  Find this 1972 Oldsmobile Delta 88 here on eBay offered for $4,500 near Phoenix, AZ via craigslist.  Tip from FuelTruck.

 I don't known which way the Delta 88 is looking at any given time, but I do know that a low mile (64k) example with the 350 rocket V8 is a rad car -- even with 4-doors.  As a big plus, the seller says SMELLS LIKE IT COME OUT OF THE SHOWROOM, so there's that.

See a cooler old boat?


  1. It looks like the listing has been deleted....

  2. Reminds me of the car from Evil Dead, although that was a '73 model and tan.
