Vehicle Description

One of 1,518 4-speed convertibles produced in 1968, this 442 underwent a professional, frame-off, nut-and-bolt rotisserie restoration performed by renowned automotive restorer Jerry Csontos of Northampton, PA, and has been driven approximately 100 miles since its completion. Under the hood is a detailed engine bay housing the matching-numbers 400/350hp Rocket engine dressed in factory-correct colors and linked to the original, matching-numbers Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission, which feeds power to the factory-original 10-bolt rear end with 3.42 gears. All correct casting codes and partial VIN stampings are present on the engine and transmission. The car idles and drives as it should, and has plenty of power and torque through all four gears. The factory power steering is smooth and tracks straight going down the highway. Formerly part of the collection of Paul Teutul Sr. of "American Chopper" fame, it is rust-free and laser-straight. Underneath, the car is as nice as it is on top. It's riding on 14" Super Stock II wheels and new Firestone F70-14 wide oval red line tires. The interior features Teal Blue vinyl bucket seats, a console with Hurst shifter, and brand-new door panels, kick panels and carpeting. All of the original gauges, lights, blinkers, cigarette lighter and AM/FM radio function as they should. The white vinyl power convertible top is wrinkle-free, goes up and down quickly and precisely, and comes with a new factory-correct convertible boot. The trunk has been restored as well with a new Firestone F70-14 wide oval tire along with the correct jack assembly, crowbar and labeling. Included in the sale are documents verifying Paul Sr.'s ownership, the original owner's manual signed by Paul Sr., 300-page 1968 Oldsmobile service manual and a complete photo history of the restoration.
