Rare 4-speed! Real 442 with vin # matching 455. Overall very
respectable car with a great list of options.
EXTERIOR: Special ordered paint color, has a - in place of the
paint code. Clean, straight body. Has original 1970 fenders, it
does not have the crumple zones in the jamb that 71 and newer had.
Smooth all along the bottoms. Paint is polished glossy. Stripes are
painted on. It has 1970 only sport mirrors. The front end trim and
bumper are shiny, grills are not broken. The stainless moldings are
straight and shiny around the windows and gutters. In back the
bumper is rechromed and has the cutouts for the exhaust trumpet
tips. The chrome 442 wheels are from a
later model. BF Goodrich tires look great. Door jambs are painted
nice, weatherstrips have been replaced. Windshield is replaced.
Over all not pristine but very nice.
INTERIOR: Very nice unabused interior. Looking at the dash, it is
really clean. The vents, bezels, gauges, heater controls, the doors
on the glove box and ashtray are all nice. I just noticed it's a
radio delete car. Has the matching cigarette lighter. All the
interior lights work- under the dash, some light, even the map
light on the mirror. The headliner is nice and tight, visors look
real good. It has all the seat belts including the shoulder belts.
It is loaded with features- inside hood lock, power windows and
seat, rear defog, console, sport wheel and clock. There is some
cracking on the edge of the driver seat that can be easily repaired
at an upholstery shop, door panels and armrests are excellent.
Carpet is excellent. Carpets look pretty new, has embroidered
carpeted floor mats. Below the dash is a neatly installed gauge
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Has VIN number matching 455 motor. The 70 is
the most desirable because it had the highest horsepower. This one
has been upgraded even higher. It has an aluminum intake, Edelbrock
carb and a set of coated headers. New alternator. Overall things
are very clean. The radiator has it's rubber flaps on each side,
the correct shroud, proper hose and plastic clamp. New washer
bottle, squirters are connected. Has insulation on the bottom of
the hood. It features power steering and brakes and factory air
conditioning. The A/C has been gone through.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Very clean, solid metal, has real nice gray and
white spatter paint. Bottom of the trunk lid and the jamb are
painted glossy. Has jacking decals, new weatherstrip. Original
trunk light still works. It has a spare and a jack.
UNDERSIDE: It has the rally suspension which includes front and
rear sway bars and boxed rear control arms. The front end was
completely rebuilt with new ball joints, bushings, shocks etc. The
rear suspension is also rebuilt, new bushings and shocks. The
floors appear to be very solid, good clean metal. The frame is in
real good shape. The bottom of the motor is not freshly painted but
it is very dry, starter looks recent. The vin # on the drivers side
of the block matches the car. The 4-speed Muncie trans looks very
clean. The tunnel where the shifter goes through the floor looks
original. The original rear end was a 3.23, recently rebuilt and
upgraded to a 3.42 posi. Brakes were serviced, has disc in front.
The e-brake cable looks new. Dual exhaust looks good.
I drove this car, very nice. The 4-speed in an Olds is rare. A
4-speed with air conditioning in any muscle car is very rare and
desirable. This is a very collectable, investment grade 442.
