Description

TRUE W-30, 455 V8, TH400 AUTO, PWR STEER, RARE COLOR COMBO, CLEAN IN/OUT, NICE!

You're looking at a real-deal code-44 1970 Oldsmobile 442 hardtop with the ultra-desirable W-30 package. And between its full cool blue presentation and performance-built 455 V8 under the hood, this is a head-turner with head-snapping power.

You're going to love the paint the moment the sunshine hits this super-straight body. After all, when was the last time you saw an Oldsmobile in its factory-correct shade of Azure Blue? It has a bright personality that's highlighted further by the gloss of clear coat that came during a professional respray. Plus, we love how the deeper blue stripe package highlights some of the most aggressive features of this fastback body. At the same time, it demonstrates how straight the sheet metal is. This A-body retains its unique Oldsmobile identity thanks to chrome bumpers (correctly notched for the dual exhaust in the rear) and a few bright stainless trim pieces that really dress it up – especially on the Olds-specific SS1 Mag-style wheels. This one continues to hit all the right notes with W-30 badging, fiberglass force-air hood, twist lock hood pins, and spoiler on the rear deck. Plus, you can easily see the lightweight red inner fenders that are the hallmark of the W-30 package.

It's not just that this one retains its factory-correct blue vinyl interior, but also its desirability comes from the handsome button-pattern buckets that instantly attract so much attention. In between the buckets is the 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. The terrific condition of it all lets you know there was a solid investment here in preservation and restoration. It makes for a great machine to share with family and friends. But even when it's Just you, this 442 is a fine driver's sports coupe. The four-spoke sports steering wheel should look familiar to any Olds fan, and beyond that is the cool round gauge package. Of course, that His & Hers 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 455 cubic-inch V8 within the red fenders. This is a service replacement block, so you get the correct Rochester four-barrel carburetor, aluminum intake, heads, distributor, and alternator from the original W-30 car, but it's now on a block that didn't spend its first few years playing stoplight dragstrip. And today, those great hood scoops still feed the massive vacuum operated ram air topper, and the power makes a great rumble out of the dual exhaust. So it's a coupe with 400+ cubic inches, four-barrel carb, and dual exhaust – a true '70 Olds 4-4-2. The stout TH400 three-speed automatic is believed to be original to the car, and the consignor said it was rebuilt to continue to provide reliable performance. Add in power steering, sway bars front & rear, and front disc brakes, and this Olds reminds you that its mission was to be both fast and comfortable.

As a real 442 W-30 coupe you'll be happy to know the sale comes with the factory buildsheet and maintenance records. Yes, this muscle car is that good and that rare, so you better hurry before it's gone forever. Call now!
