Be different from the Chevy crowd and get into an 88! Please ask questions. Rarer car with a lot done to it already and lots of potential for the next owner. Car is located in Ventura CA. It is titled in Illinois. Please ask questions prior to placing to bid. I am sure there are details I have forgotten so no question is dumb question. This Olds is sold as is with no reserve. Bid to own. It's a driving project and in the right hands can easily be taken to the next level. Too many other projects and work overseas is the reason I am selling. Not interested in trades. Best of luck!
