The original Oldsmobile Omega was a badge engineered version of the X-platform Chevrolet Nova and was sold in two generations 1973-1974 and 1975-1979. The Omega was more luxurious than the Nova it was based on, but it still rode on the same basic chassis and is just as wonderful or horrible depending on who you talk to about it. Novas in good shape demand some coin, but the equivalent Oldsmobile Omega (or Buick Apollo or Pontiac Ventura) are offered for cheap. Find this 1973 Oldsmobile Omega offered for $6,500 in Spokane, WA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

Selling my 1973 Oldsmobile Omega Sport Coupe, hatchback. Car has sat since 2004 in the garage of the original owner. Tons of recent work done to put it back on the road. ZERO RUST!

Car does have air conditioning, but it is not currently functional. Runs like a dream, great sounding exhaust with a Flowmaster-ish muffler, air shocks in rear that hold air… has a few dings and one good dent. Was painted 20+ years ago and should eventually be repainted. Preferably back to it’s original orange color. Licensed, clean title. Drive it home worry free. Serious inquiries only please. $6500 or reasonable offer. No trades.
