VERY NICE, REAL 442, #'S MATCH 455, 4 SPD, A/C, ALL DOCS, PWR STEER/FRNT DISC A+
This is a real-deal 1970 Oldsmobile 442 at it's best. After all, it has the numbers-matching 455 V8, four-on-the-floor, A/C, and when was the last time you saw one that was preserved in its distinctively original green-on-green colors?
You're going to love the paint the moment the sunshine hits this super-straight body. This is a very well done respray of the factory-correct Forest Green. It give the car a more modern luster and metallic element. But it also doesn't carry an overzealous "electric" personality, so it stays closer to the original 442 spirit than some modern resprays. These are the sleek kings of the streets, with the fastback profile and bulging quarter panels. This one continues to hit all the right notes with added W-30 badging, fiberglass force-air hood, twist lock hood pins, and spoiler on the rear deck. The intricate white stripes do a great job of highlighting the aggressive look. This A-body retains its unique Oldsmobile identity thanks to chrome bumpers (correctly notched in the rear) and a few bright stainless trim pieces that really dress it up – especially on the Olds-specific rallye wheels.
It's not just that this one retains its factory-correct green vinyl interior, but also the desirability comes from the handsome button-pattern buckets that instantly attract so much attention. In between the buckets is the optional center console that's a very desirable option. Of course, as an Olds, there's plenty of burled walnut applique on the dash, door panels, and console. It does a very nice job of adding a Olds-level premium character to the interior. Everyone benefits from features like the AM/FM/cassette radio and comfortable factory air conditioning. But still, this is a true driver's car at heart. The four-spoke sports steering wheel should look familiar to any Olds fan, and beyond that is a set clear original gauges. And of course, that Hurst shifter boldly protruding from the center console is a whole lot of fun.
Under the hood is exactly what you want to see – a numbers-matching 455 cubic-inch V8. The engine bay is an impressive time machine that looks like this car just left the Linden factory. Those great hood scoops feed the massive air cleaner, and below that is a four-barrel carburetor. The power makes a great rumble as long-tube headers connect to the dual exhaust (Yup...400+ cubic inches, four-barrel carburetor, and dual exhaust – it's a true Olds 4-4-2.) But real 442 fans know part of the original legend includes a four-speed manual, and so this one has that, too! It means you get complete control over this massive V8 package. As usual with an Oldsmobile, no matter how much power it's putting down, it still has all-day usability. This comes from features such as power steering, front disc brakes, and the grip of BF Goodrich T/A radials.
This is a real-deal (VIN 334) Olds 442 in distinctive original colors. It even comes with a ton of paperwork, including the original window sticker, dealer invoice, warranty card, factory buildsheet, maintenance receipts, and owner's manual. So this is an award-worthy 442 with the docs to back it all up. Yes this muscle car is that good and that rare, so you better hurry before it's gone forever. Call today!!
