Automotive History: The name '442' first appeared in 1964 as an option on the F-85 and Cutlass. The 442 was technically the 'B09 Police Apprehender' option which included the four-barrel carbureted 330 cubic-inch V8 with dual exhaust and 310 horsepower. The suspension, shocks, clutch, transmission, driveshaft, brakes, and wheels were also greatly improved. The name '4-4-2' evolved from the combination of options: four-barrel carburetor, four-speed transmission, and dual, meaning two, exhausts. The 442 had been offered in retaliation of the Pontiac Tempest GTO which was unexpectedly popular. Oldsmobile wanted some of those sales. The 442 was offered on any F-85 or Cutlass model except the station wagons. Sent from my iPhone
