The price is set at an unknown reserve? What would you pay?

That is BEAUTIFUL!

And talk about picture overload. I don't think I've ever seen a listing with so many pictures. Then again I don't look at too many cars online because it just makes me want what I can't have!

Loved the fish sticker on the back though... I think it may need one of these too, which I purchased from a local bar:

Wow that is a time capsule! I just hope someone replaces the plastic cam sprocket before the vintage, original 3.0 engine gets destroyed.

Lol about the "Darwin Vs. Jesus Backbumper Fish Fight" Great laugh!!!!

Good point on the cam sprocket. Maybe one of us should contact the seller and tell them to refer the buyer to this forum after the sale? At least then they can learn about the cam sprocket.

I daresay that is indeed worth what NADA book says for it; at $4100 high (excellent low mile) for the year and model! WOW!

I don't know if anyone recalls the 1986 Century on eBay earlier this year - only 16,000 miles and just as nice as this car. It took two tries but the seller finally got $3200 for it. That car was a grandma style 2.5 liter 3 speed - pretty close to this car. I would be stunned if anyone offered $4100 for this car, and I predict the bidding will go to $2600 max.

The problem is that the car is 1. Not collectible and 2. Not a sport variant. In fact the Black Celebrity VR that one of our posters has was listed on eBay I think last year, and the bidding only reached $2600.

For whatever reason, the larger FWD Delta 88's such bring a lot more money. I have no idea why.

right; i'm thinking the seller has a reserve price of somewhere in the 3800-4100 range; and even if its not collectible by a large majority, it is possible the Oldsmobile Club of America with its various chapters might buy it just to "round out" their collection of Oldsmobiles...this one has the 3.0 V6; so its a bit more torquer than the 2.5 already, the fact there's so many pictures, might get bidders to bid like crazy just because of the key word, CUTLASS!!! lol.

lol Cutlass. I think I may have mentioned this before, but I almost didn't get my Ciera because someone else heard it was a "Cutlass" and basically went blind at that point, offering twice what the car was worth and not realizing, at least at first, that it wasn't the car they were thinking of. Not to mention mine is a '96 and thus not even a Cutlass according to GM that final year. ;)

I wish there was a way to notify the buyer to A-Body.net.

Only thing I can think of is to contact the seller and see if they'll pass it on.

Back in the early days of eBay, weren't the winning bidders visible to all? I swear I remember contacting a buyer and informing them something important about their purchase. I've been a member since like 2000, back when most auctions didn't even have pictures, and if they did they were taken from a webcam.

Edit: Contacted seller myself, and sent a nice cordial message inviting him to point the buyer to our friendly forum. Figure it can't hurt, the worst that can happen is the seller is a jerk and tells me to mind my own business. :p
