Description

TRUE 442, 455 V8, TH400 AUTO, A/C, PWR STEER & BRAKE, FRESH RESTO, DOCUMENTED!!

You're looking at a real-deal code-44 1970 Oldsmobile 442 hardtop coupe that's been restored in exactly the way you'd want, right down to the A/C interior. And in the process, it has also been given some ultra-cool W-30 upgrades.

The Oldsmobile 442 was on a dual mission to provide performance and luxury, and this coupe seems to do it best. A full frame off restoration completed in 2014 shows there was a true investment in a professional hand on this body. Sebring Yellow was part of Oldsmobile's palette in 1970, but you never got it looking like this from the factory. Modern clearcoat and a careful application means a bright and even shine over this iconic fastback silhouette. Plus, the intricate black stripes do a great job of highlighting the aggressive look. Oldsmobile was one of the best at integrating bumper design into their overall style, and these chrome kings really help this A-body retain its unique identity. The rest of the trim looks just as good – especially on the Olds-specific Rallye wheels. This one continues to hit all the right notes with added W-30 badging, forced-air hood scoops, twist lock hood pins, rear spoiler, and of course, the hallmark W-30 lightweight red inner fender wells.

The black interior is pure Oldsmobile. The handsome button-pattern seats have to be this perfect because they attract so much attention. After all, that yellow streak added to the top to match the exterior is a true artful touch. In between the front buckets is the optional center console that combines the comfort of the armrest with the performance of a Hurst shifter. Plus, the four-spoke sports steering wheel should look familiar to any Olds fan, and beyond that is a trio of round gauges. Of course, as a premium Olds, there's plenty of burled walnut applique on the dash, door panels, and console. And, when the wood-like appearance is this good, it does a very nice job of adding character to the interior. Everyone benefits from upgrades like the vintage-style AM/FM stereo that has upgraded speakers and an input for modern music players. And there's even modern R134a air conditioning blowing ice-cold to keep you cool while looking cool in this pillarless hardtop.

Under the hood is exactly what you want to see – a restored 455 cubic-inch V8 within the red fenders. There has been a solid investment in engine bay during restoration so that it's an impressive time machine that looks like this car just left the Lansing factory. Those great hood scoops feed the massive vacuum operated ram air intake, and below that is a four-barrel carburetor. The power makes a great rumble out of the dual exhaust (Yup...400+ cubic inches, four-barrel carb, and dual exhaust – it's a true '70 Olds 4-4-2.) The stout TH400 three-speed automatic connects to a 12-bolt rear end to make sure all the power properly gets to the pavement. But no matter how much power it's putting down, it still has all-day usability of an Oldsmobile. This comes from features such as thick sway bars front & rear, power steering, front disc brakes, and the grip of BF Goodrich T/A radials.

The restoration photos and receipts detail the serious investment in this coupe. And the undercarriage photos show you the all-around quality that kind of money produces. A turn-key total package like this never stays idle for long, so don't miss out. Call now!
