For Sale: 1971 Oldsmobile 442 in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

You're looking at a real-deal 1971 Oldsmobile 442 that has everything from a distinctive color combo to a loaded A/C interior. And with the true ram air hood force-feeding the big 455 V8 underneath, this is a head-turner with head-snapping power.


Viking Blue is this car's original color, but there has been a serious investment to respray the coupe. That means a deeper tone and a great metallic finish. This upgraded paint does a terrific job of showing off the curves that makes this hardtop an icon. Plus, you have the best sporty details on this real-deal 442. It includes the ram air hood, twist-down hood locks, notched rear bumper, and full-width rear spoiler. Plus, the color-matched Olds Super Stock III wheels are a must on a proper 442. But this is also a premium Oldsmobile, and so it balances out these intimidating features with a premium side. You see it in places like the bright form-fitting chrome bumpers. And the black vinyl roof not only looks upscale, but also it coordinates with the full-length black pinstripes and the stripes that highlight the twin air scoops on the hood.


The black accents of the exterior get you ready for the full black interior. This is equal parts attractive and crisp, and that presentation starts with the seats. The handsome button-pattern buckets have that instant look of a well-respected classic. There's plenty of burled walnut applique on the dash, door panels, and console. It does a very nice job of adding a Olds-level premium character to the interior. In fact, speaking of premium, this one has exactly what you want in a classic upscale car, including the correct AM/FM radio and cold-blowing factory air conditioning. It's the kind of coupe that family and friends will always want to go for a ride. But even when you're just going solo, this is a ton of fun. You have the Olds four-spoke sports steering wheel on a tilt column, and beyond that are the round gauges w/large speedo and tach. And you may have noticed that this also comes with the classic Hurst dual gate shifter.


Under the hood is exactly what you want to see: the big 455 cubic-inch V8. After all, the bright blue block truly looks like it's radiating power from within the engine bay. This has the correct look with the air topper sealing to the ram air hood. Beneath that is a correct-style Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor. There's a thunderous presence with the rumble of the dual exhaust (Yup...400+ cubic inches, four-barrel carb, and dual exhaust: it's a true '71 Olds 4-4-2.) The TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is the ideal pairing for both stout construction and easy automatic shifting. The correct sports suspension with boxed control arms and sway bars front & rear give this muscle machine the right heavy duty backup. But no matter how much power it's putting down, this one still has all-day usability of an Oldsmobile. It comes from features such as power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and the grip of Firestone Firehawk tires.


This Olds not only has the look of quality, but also you feel the investment out on the road, too. It's the powerful classic with all the features you want. So don't miss out, call today!
