Vehicle Description

After Pontiac's success with the GTO, Oldsmobile followed close behind with the 442 package, so named for its 4-barrel carburetor, 4-speed manual transmission and dual exhaust. GM's decision to allow engines of a more than 400 CI displacement in its 1970 intermediates gave Oldsmobile free reign to offer its 455 CI V-8 in the Cutlass-based 442, creating the foundation for the mighty W-30, arguably the wildest Oldsmobile ever built. Advertised as the creation of one Dr. Oldsmobile, each W-30 engine was balanced and blueprinted at the factory, where it was fitted with a special high-performance cam, high-flow Rochester Quadrajet 4-barrel carburetor and low-restriction dual exhaust. The W-30 also incorporated forced air induction using a twin-scooped fiberglass hood with hold-down pins, red plastic inner fenders, and less sound insulation to reduce weight. This 1970 Oldsmobile 442 W-30 Coupe has been treated to a frame off restoration in 2008 and has a rebuilt F block 455/370 HP engine, OW tagged TH400 Automatic transmission and TM stamped 3.42 geared rear end. Beautifully finished in Reef Turquoise Metallic with white stripes. This 442 is very well equipped with power windows, power steering, power disc brakes, factory A/C, tilt sport steering wheel, Rally Gauges, Dual Gate Hurst Shifter, bucket seats with center console and power trunk release. This pinnacle Oldsmobile muscle machine is the real deal with Build sheet to verify authenticity. Owned by previous owner for the last 12 years. Call or email [email protected] or 715-687-4522
