Car History

Oldsmobile's leap into the muscle car wars was with the car called the ''4-4-2." That name was derived from the original design of the car which included a four-barrel carburetor, four-speed manual transmission, and dual exhausts
.
The 1969 badging was shortened to simply ''442'', but Oldsmobile brochures and internal documents continued to use the ''4-4-2'' model designation.

We have a very nice numbers matching "true Oldsmobile 442", vin #344879M206340, (all true 1969 442 cars came with the 344879 vin number) here at Adventure Classics that has that has that four-barrel carburetor, four-speed manual transmission, and dual exhaust and showing only 26000 miles on the speedometer!
