1968 Oldsmobile 442 W30
Why This Vehicle is Special
The fastest production Oldsmobile in 1968 was the W30 Package Ram
Air equipped 442 W-30 4-speed coupe that boasted dual air intakes
feeding its 400/360 HP V-8. Just 246 W-30 Sport coupes were
equipped with this car's close-ratio Muncie 4-speed, but even fewer
are around today. We have a pristine Black one with documentation
here at Skyway Classics!
Our 442 has a period correct 400 engine completely rebuilt,
documented, very strong sounding with performance cam, factory
exhaust headers and performance exhaust and mufflers flowing out
the factory tips.
It is painted in the factory copper color and is sitting in a very
detailed and clean engine compartment with all the right original
valve covers, new chrome air cleaner with original included, and
factory everything else too. W-30 option cars were equipped with
Ram Air intake hoses leading from a chrome-topped dual snorkel
black air cleaner to special under-bumper air scoops and set off by
bright red plastic fender wells
W-30s were rated at 360 hp. Car Life also tested a four-speed W-30
with 4.33 rear end gears and recorded a 13.3 at 103.30 mph, which
shows you how quick these W30 442s really were.
The original black bucket seat with chrome console, black carpet,
factory dash and gauges, looks fantastic as does the interior
options including Wood grain Sports tilt steering wheel, AM/FM
radio with power antenna, Stereo Tape Player, tinted glass, safety
belts, floor mats and much more.
Our 442 is mostly original but for a 1994 repaint of original AA
Code Black Paint. It has the F-41 rear- sway bar, boxed control
arms, Red Rally Stripe, optional bright exterior trim package,
Super Stock 1 wheels and, great Redline tires.
The 442 also retains the original window sticker and a wooden ruler
from the selling dealer stashed in the clean and detailed trunk
which has a factory black mat, spare Super Stock Wheel, and
Do not miss your chance at this very rare and very original 1968
Oldsmobile 442 W30 we have at Skyway Classics. It is a great piece
of Oldsmobile history and a great muscle car of its time.
