The Oldsmobile 88 was offered in some form from 1949 through the 1999 model year. Over its 50-year run, the 88 had a whole library full of interesting model names, but the car was always an 88. In the 1950s and 1960s, the 88 was Olds' top seller.
The 1967 model year was bigger for changes, as the 88 line got a facelift to keep pace with the times. Gone were the straight lines of the middle 1960s, replaced by more sweeping styles in the GM "coke bottle" design language of the era. Trim level names changed, with the creative "Delmont" as the entry-level 88. The Delta 88 remained the top trim level, but it was divided into the standard Delta 88 and the upscale Delta 88 Custom. The Custom line was available only in two- or four-door hardtop styles. The 1967 Delmont 88s also carried an engine designation of 330 or 425 - referring to the size of the engine in the car. Convertibles were offered only with the 425-cid engine. The 330-cid V-8 offered 250 hp, while the 425 delivered 300 hp.Only minor changes were instituted for 1968, with the 330 engine growing to 350 cid and no power gain. The 425 engine grew to 455 cid and 310 hp, gaining 10 over the prior year.
