1983 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Regency (Olds)
Last updated May 23, 2012
A friend of mine called me back in September of 2010 and asked if I wanted to buy his old car. I knew he a 1966 Lincoln with Suicide doors and I thought heck ya. When I asked if it was the Lincoln he was selling he said no so I thought it was the old Nash he also owned (not sure what year). When I asked about it he again told me no and said it was the 1983 Olds. I forgot he had that one but I didn't hesitate to say yes because I did remember the car and knew it was in fairly good shape. His father purchased the car new and when he passed away my friend started driving it. It was his daily driver for several years and then he parked it in the shed for the last three years before I purchased it.
Of course this car is pushing the 20 foot mark on the tape measure and you could not beat the ride! The old girl just floats down the road! It has the 307 Olds engine and still runs like a top!
Of course being a luxuary car it has A/C which still works, p/w, p/l, drivers seat is power, remote operated mirrors on both sides, automatic trunk release
Nothing has been changed on this car. It is still all factory and I intend on keeping it that way. As I said earlier it is needing a paint job since the paint on the hood and trunk is starting to crack but it will be done back with original factory paint color along with the thin double line white pin-stripe than runs along the upper body contours.

I was wondering if anyone out there might know where I could find some parts for my 1983 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Regency? I have searched the web and no parts warehouse or places like that carry many body parts for this car. I really don't need much but boy...

I am looking to have my 83 Olds repainted and was wondering if some of you guys could give me a little insight. I have never had a car repainted so this is new territory for me. The quote I received was around $3,000.00. I am having it repainted factory...
