For Sale: 1971 Oldsmobile 442 W-30 in Connersville, Indiana

$74,500 (OBO)

Vehicle Description

This is a 2-owner 4-speed. I have all original documentation. Unusual color combination.  POSSIBLY the only color, in this particular color combo produced. Ground up restoration, completed in 2004.  The vehicle did win 3rd place in the 2017 World of Wheels. The car is mostly original.  Has correct year and type block, but not for this particular car.  Dealer installed short block. Otherwise all original car. The engine runs very strong. Does have some minor wear since restoration. The following list of parts that I will let go with car for an additional $5000.00: Brand new, year correct power steering conversion, Mondello roller cam set, roller rockers, and most parts to freshen up motor. Stainless steel 2.5 inch exhaust with 2.5 inch stainless steel exhaust tips, original factory service manual and parts books. If these parts do not interest you, that is fine. Just putting out there for an option.

This car is equipped with 342 rear axle, M22 4-speed, manual steering, manual front disc brakes, inside hood lock. All standard W-30 options.

I purchased this car from the original owner in 1987. Since the death of my son, I have lost all interest in the car. I no longer enjoy driving the car. The car was appraised for much more a few years back. Had it apprsised for insurance coverage reasons  Selling as is, where is: please only serious inquiries only. 

This is a very solid, strong running car. I have had quite a bit of enjoyment with it down through the years. Like I stated earlier since the death of my son, my heart is no longer with the car. I do hope the next owner enjoys her as much as I did. You won't be disappointed.
