1973 OLDSMOBILE OMEGA -- CLONED FROM THE CHEVY NOVA
In 1973 GM had the bright idea of utilizing the Chevy Nova chassis and body for the new compact Buick Apollo and the Oldsmobile Omega. Both clones look like a Chevy Nova except different front and rear end treatments. Of course both of these clones like the Chevy Nova were at the bottom rung of all three divisions. All three compacts came in a hatchback coupe, coupe and 4 door sedan. This coupe is one of 26,126 made and had a price tag of $2,613. Engines for the Omega were a L-head 6 with 250 cid and 100 bhp., and a V8, 350 cid with 180 horses. GM market share kept climbing, reaching just over 52% of the domestic industry. The Omega replaced the final year of the Olds F-85 which only came in a four door model and only 3,792 were made for it's last year. While the Buick Apollo sales faltered, the Olds Omega continued on through the 1984 model year and then replaced by the Olds Firenza. All three compacts could be dressed up with a vinyl roof and some power accessories. This example is hardly seen anymore and is in excellent condition. My guess is that is was an one owner car most of it's life and always maintained and garaged. I hope you enjoy this first year clone, the 1973 Oldsmobile Omega and thanks very much for viewing.
