Convertible Or Not, This Oldsmobile Delmont 88 Faces The Crusher's Jaws

Illustration for article titled Convertible Or Not, This Oldsmobile Delmont 88 Faces The Crushers Jaws


After seeing a Peugeot, a Triumph, and a BMW down on the junkyard, we're going to return to good ol' Detroit Iron today. This '68 Olds Delmont 88 convertible still has plenty of good parts, including the no-doubt-hard-to-find convertible-top gear, which probably fits many other full-sized GM convertibles. The Delmont was made for only two years, and its claim to fame was as the car Teddy Kennedy drove off the Chappaquiddick Bridge. Make the jump for an additional gallery.
