Amazing how a set of color-matched Olds rally wheels can transform something like this into a reasonably appealing car.

Believe it or not I am more thrilled to see something like this then a restored Mustang or Camaro. You never see these cars on the road . Although at the time when these cars were new they were very much considered no thrill cars. I think also you could of ordered one of these in a 4 speed standard transmission

perfect color for such a turd. Holds no appeal for me

I've always loved these, one of the few who did I guess.

No 4 speed option, but the 260 V8 (both the gas & the diesel) were available with a 5 speed. Very few takers on either combo, I believe.

It's like somebody took the sedan and put it in a miter box. Welcome back OPC!

YES There was a 4 Speed option, they also made a few 442s in that body style I have seen 3 or 4 with the saginaw 4 Speed, the 5 speed was a T50

Interesting, Dad had a '77 (previous body style) and I remember reading the owner's manual and finding mention of a 5 speed with the 260 V8 and kinda wishing his had it (it was a 350 4bbl auto). So, when I first saw it and Richard's comment I did a little internet sleuthing and only found info on the 5 speed, no 4 speed. Either one would be fun.

This car is actually in condition worthy of being on the road. Love Oldsmobile

I saw a Buick version of this car in Geelong Australia today.

My mom had a maroon '78 in this two door guise. It was a great car, until my cousin crashed it, that is.

I loved the flag decal on the back of it.
