Vehicle Description

This car is a spectacularly careful recreation of one of the iconic muscle cars of the 1960s, the Oldsmobile 442.

A total nut and bolt, frame off restoration was completed just five years ago. Since that total rebuild this car has only been driven some 250 miles.

It was a total rebuild since the owner replaced the frame with a new power coated frame. At the same time the engine was totally redone with a Ram Rod 350 intake added to the 350 cu. in. engine which had been brought up to 442 specification with new carb, headers and camshaft. The transmission is a floor mounted automatic.

This car comes with power brakes, power steering, power top and air conditioning.

In addition to mechanical upgrades this restoration included a new dashboard, new fabric on the seats and floor and a new white convertible top. Dual 442 style air ducts were added under the front bumper of the car. The wheel wells are red composite which was part of the W-30 package.

It is painted a deep blue known as Nocturne Blue and the bodywork including the chrome is in remarkable condition. The interior is white with bucket seats in front.

This car was originally a Cutlass S model and rebadged as a 442 much as the original 4-4-2 was created from the Cutlass model in 1964 by Olds to compete with the highly successful Pontiac GTO. At that time the car was also brought up mechanically to 442 specifications.

Unbelievably clean this Olds 442 is a real beauty and an excellent opportunity to own a real muscle car.

ESTIMATE: $35,000-$45,000
