8,194 ORIGINAL MILES
This stunning 1980 Oldsmobile 98 Regency has traveled only 8,194 miles since leaving the showroom in 1980. If you’re looking for an Oldsmobile that will continue to appreciate in value, this is it.
Finished in Light Blue Metallic, this car’s finish has a beautiful luster that is further accentuated by its matching full vinyl padded roof and contrasting Dark Blue pinstripes. Exterior opera lamps also contribute to an air of luxury. Optional body side molding and an abundance of mirror-like chrome complete the look.
Its Regency interior is nothing short of sumptuous. The padded door cushions, simulated Butterfly Walnut-grain door pulls and trim, and courtesy lamps beckon you into an environment of comfort and luxury. The Dark Blue velour loose-pillow-look seatbacks provide comfortable seating for six. You will also appreciate its split front seats with a center arm rest embellished with rich embroidery. Its commanding dashboard, also finished in simulated walnut and tastefully applied chrome, is a pilot’s dream. All areas of the interior, including door panels, seating areas, carpeting, dashboard, steering wheel, and headliner appear as new and are without wear.
Comfort and convenience items do not go unnoticed in this car and include the following:
All power options work as they should, including the clock and air conditioning.
Under the hood you will find a 350 CID V-8 diesel engine mated to a three speed automatic transmission. Its glow plugs ensure quick starting every time, and it is equipped with an optional engine block heater to ensure easy startups on even the coldest of days. The car runs and drives like new and has performance that exceeds many of its contemporaries of the time. Best of all, this car’s fuel economy will impress you with ratings of 21 MPG city and 31 MPG highway—figures unheard of in its time for full-size luxury cars, and still impressive today.
One item of note is that very minor imperfections in the paint do not detract from the overall appearance of this car. Additionally, it should noted that this car benefits from new tires, new batteries, new trunk lift supports, and a new headliner and sail panels.
Originally sold from Sharpnak Oldsmobile in Vermilion, Ohio, this two owner car has always been kept indoors and under a car cover. It has never seen a winter. Included with sale is its original paperwork, including a copy of the window sticker, and all owner’s and maintenance manuals.
Whether showing or cruising is your pleasure, this ultra-low mileage 1980 Oldsmobile 98 Regency is the car for you.&
