1981 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale Coupe (Frankenolds)
Last updated Jan 17, 2007
I got this car in 2000 for free from the original owner in good running/driving condition. It had a 3.8(231ci)V6.
It has been in it's current state and on the road since 2003.
I used parts from several cars to build this on the super cheap. The '77 403 had a factory rating of 185hp/320ft.lbs torque. Just a little tweaking on carb jetting,timing,and breathing. It does run pretty strong for what it appears to be.
I built Oldsmobiles on the assembly line,so no problem building them at home.
