1978 Delta 88 with a console

This is a pretty cool car, I think. How often do you see one with a console? Nice shape, too.

Definitely a straight car. The bumper fillers look to be in good shape too. I wonder what the condition of the frame and the rear bumper is given that they probably use salt in northern Indiana?

Very sharp looking vehicle... Years ago I owned a 1980 Holiday 88, bucket seats and console, with 350 diesel... Eventually sold it to my brother who converted it to gas and then resold it...

This is my 78 Holiday 88. 41,000 miles. 403, 3.23 rear, buckets and console. Original paint. Would sell to someone that would appreciate it. Greg.

Quite of few of these holiday coupes have been popping up around Michigan lately. Including one my home town. Was thinking about it, but heavy rust in the A pillar jamb killed my thoughts.

$8000. Not a speck of rust. Lots of documentation. I bought it from the original owner who I've known over 30years. Greg. [email protected]

I never knew you could get a Delta 88 with a console...or a sport steering wheel like that. My grandfather bought his new in '78 and my brother inherited it. Wish we still had that car.

Does yours have the same sport style steering wheel too? Wondering if all Holidays came with console and sport wheel?

The console was only available on the base Delta 88 as part of the Holidsy Coupe option. I had several of those for demos and always enjoyed them. I always ordered the handling suspension, lower gears and bigger tires.
