What are 4 words you never hear together.
Yep, fresh from the 80's comes this pretty clean 1984 Buick Century Estate Wagon with the rarely seen 4.3 litre Oldsmobile diesel V6, FWD no less either! I think that at the time this was one of the few if not the only diesel V6 being made in the world at the time, not that diesel V6's are even that common now.
Mmmmmmm.....red velour and 80's GM straight edge dash boards, I feel like a kid again, watch out, dont cut yourself on all those angles.
Gauge cluster too, I think that the diesel engine option came with the gauges manditory.
Though GM diesels do have their bad rep, the 4.3 litre V6 used much of what was learned from the 5.7 and 4.3 litre diesel V8's, this was the only GM diesel that was used in both transverse FWD cars and convetional RWD cars too, it made about 90hp, it was too little to late and designed for a future that never came, by the time the new diesel V6 came out in 1983, the previous troublesome Olds oil burners had killed what little interest there was in diesels, not to mention that plumeting oil prices made gas cheap again, so by 1986 it was aloha to the diesel V6 and goodbye in general to diesel passenger car engines in the US for GM.
Look, its even got an ashtray for the kiddies!
This gem is on ebay now.
And for those of you who like your obscure GM diesels in sedan form...its Cutlass Ciera cousin is on ebay too.
