What specifically are you looking for. Hemmings News has plenty of Olds info, and parts suppliers.

Re: ANY information on REPAIR/RESTORATION on a 72 Delta 88 Convertible

i have to rebuild the motor, which i am familiar with, replace the convertible top, sand and prime, wiring(definetly need ALL wiring diagrams),replacing the carb, replacing carpet... just to name a few. I bought this car for $425, running a little rough and missing a fender. I replaced the entire front end and trunk because of dents. i have also replaced all seats. this is actually my husbands project, but i am also really into automotive work. he is unable to do ANY work on it now and i wanted to surprise him with having some of it done. i do have one more question... i have gas and oil mixing...what can than be caused from? THANKS A MILLION!

Overly rich mixture in carb, or a ruptured diaphragm in the fuel pump. If this has a vapor cannister that could be loaded with fuel and enrichening the mixture. Also you should get a factory shop manual. You may want the Fisher body manual also.
