Get Your NASCAR Fix With 1986 Oldsmobile Winston Cup Car 31

Diehard fans of NASCAR racing (of a certain age, we might add) may remember how Rick Wilson’s Kodak Car finished second at the Pepsi 400 at Daytona back in 1988, losing the race by a mere 18 inches.

If that means something to you, and you’ve got some extra room in your garage, then perhaps bidding on this 1986 Oldsmobile Delta 88 is something you’d want to consider. The car is currently being auctioned off on Bring a Trailer, and with 6 days left to go, the highest current bid is just $1,888, although we expect that number to go up considerably.

According to the ad, the car was reported to have been in storage for almost 20 years before it was partially restored and acquired by the current seller. It’s worth noting though that the paint isn’t exactly in tip top condition, with some panels being chipped and others featuring hairline cracks. Inside, it has a full roll cage, a Richardson Racing seat, fire suppression system, Cole-Hersee electrical kill switch and a racing fuel cell.

This 1986 Oldsmobile is powered by a V8 that has been rebuilt using a Chevy Cup car block, 9:1 Pontiac heads and pistons, a Barnes oil pump and a Demon 650cfm carburetor. While the car is said to be in running order, it has not turned its wheels in anger for at least four years.

The Last Oldsmobile Is Being Auctioned Off In New York Tomorrow 14

Posted by Michael Gauthier in auction, Oldsmobile on 12 14th, 2017


General Motors phased out Oldsmobile over a decade ago but one lucky person has the chance to purchase the last Oldsmobile ever made.

Fox News is reporting the company’s final model, a 2004 Alero GLS, will go under the hammer at the State Line Auto Auction in Waverly, New York on December 15th.

The final car was built at the Lansing Car Assembly plant in Michigan on April 29th, 2004 and workers marked the occasion by signing their names on the vehicle. GM kept the car in its possession for a number of years and it was most recently displayed at the GM Heritage Center.

However, it appears nostalgia has an expiration date as GM has finally decided to part ways with the car. Unfortunately fans hoping to bid on the Alero are out of luck as auction is only open to dealers.

There’s no word on how much the car is expected to sell for but the model features a 3.4-liter V6 engine that produces 170 hp (126 kW) and 200 lb-ft (270 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a four-speed automatic transmission which sends power to the front wheels.

If the Alero isn’t your kind of thing, bidders will also have the chance to buy the last Oldsmobile Cierra and Cutlass.
