ONLY 9K ORIGINAL MILES, RECENT TUNE UP, BUILD SHEET & WINDOW STICKER, VERY CLEAN
Typically cars like this 1983 Oldsmobile Toronado might get overlooked by collectors, but with only 8,987 original miles (not a misprint), it's quite likely the finest of its kind available anywhere. Recently serviced and beautifully preserved, it's a seldom-seen bit of '80s luxury that will surely be welcome at any major event.
Even in the '80s you didn't see many of these running around. Sure, lots of Rivieras and Eldorados, but the car that started the whole front-wheel-drive revolution remained elusive. This one has obviously been something special for its owner since the day it came home from the dealership, and aside from service and maintenance parts, it's entirely original and extremely well preserved. The white paint shines better than any General Motors paint in 1983 has a right to. Those long doors fit well and don't sag, the hood sits flush with the handsome peaked fenders, and even the padded half-roof looks virtually new. It isn't perfect, but it is as close to perfect as General Motors was building in 1983, and if you want a car that's a slam-dunk in preservation class judging, I don't think many can be better than this Toro. Sparkling chrome, nice plastic filler panels (these always crack with age, but on this car they're almost new), and unmarked glass all speak to a car that's been cherished rather than merely owned.
White with burgundy leather was a popular color combination in the '80s and it will never go out of style. As Oldsmobile's top-of-the-line machine, it was loaded with features and amenities that would equal its Cadillac siblings, and some would argue that its rarity makes it the more desirable car. The bucket seats show only the most minor signs of use, the carpets are like new, the door panels don't even have a dent from the driver's elbow, and the gauges are crisp and bright. Things like A/C, power windows and locks, power seats, a tilt wheel, and cruise control are all included and it all works! If you drove a GM car in the '80s, you'll find the AM/FM/cassette stereo familiar and it sounds decent thanks to heavy soundproofing in this luxury coupe. The back seat has probably never been used and obviously this car has always been stored indoors as there is no fading or cracking on any of the plastic parts. And the trunk is finished as original with what appears to be the original spare tire still stowed up front.
Toronados used a 307 cubic inch V8 that would eventually be used throughout GM to power luxury machines like the Cadillac Brougham, and for good reason: it's smooth and torquey. Everything under the hood is original and very nicely preserved, with only routine service items being replaced over the years. It has been recently tuned up by a GM dealer so it runs superbly and the A/C was converted to R134a refrigerant. A quick detail job would make it ready for show, but it's also going to be hard to resist driving this one just because it works so well. The chassis is entirely original and shows extremely well, and even the exhaust system is still OEM. Factory wire wheel covers are surrounded by 205/75/15 whitewall radials that might be only the second set of tires this car has ever worn!
Extensively documented with a build sheet, original window sticker, and service receipts, this is a fantastic survivor that's also a rather rare beast. Call today!
