1978 Oldsmobile Toronado Brougham.
This is a very original California car, owned by the same people since 1980. ..possibly a one owner car. The car steers, handles, brakes and rides like a low mileage car, it's a very enjoyable car to drive. The Oldsmobile has the same 6.6L engine as in a 77-79 Trans Am. It starts well, idles quietly and drives and shifts smoothly the air-conditioning works. The car comes with a smog certificate which make transfer in California straightforward. The interior is in very nice original condition with minimal/normal wear. The gauges work, including the high-gear fuel economy gauge! The factory radio and 8-track both work and sounds good (power antenna does not go up or down and the clock does not work). The carpet is in very good condition and the factory front mat is still with the car. The dash-top is overall very nice but there are some cracks in the corners around the speaker covers. Power seats, windows and door locks all work, the headliner is in very good condition too.
The body is solid and rust free, most of the paint and factory paint pinstriping look to be original. There are expected parking lot chips,dings, light scrapes that occur over the years. There is an area of below average paint repair around the emblem on the drivers front fender (see picture), and the original paint is thin in spots on the car and on some edges. The floors and frame are solid. The transmission shifts very smoothly, but the front transmission mount needs to be replaced (available on ebay for around $50). The tires on the car are in like new condition.
The car is sold as-is and as equipped. However, you are welcome to come see and/or have the car inspected before the end of the auction. Payment is expected in full within seven days of the end of the sale. California buyers, and all in-state sales, are subject to sales taxes, doc. smog & lic. fees.
