RealRides of WNY - 1974 88 Royale

Day 4 of a week looking at the cars of Lansing…

This 1974 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale convertible marked the penultimate year for the full-size Olds droptop. The 88 Royale was a notch above the Delta 88 in the Olds lineup, and was also available as a two- or four-door hardtop as well as a four-door pillared sedan. Olds sold only 3,716 of the convertible for MY 1974, but built over 21,000 the following year, no doubt figuring buyers would want one of those last cars with the retractable roof. We came across today’s RealRide while bicycling last summer through the Old First Ward in Buffalo.
