to compete with brand rival Pontiac and their newly introduced GTO,
in 1964 Oldsmobile introduced the 442 option for the Cutlass. The
name was derived from the car being equipped with a 4-barrel
carburetor, 4-speed transmission and dual exhaust. Although in
later years the car would be offered with an automatic transmission
option, it retained its status as the top-of-the-line performance
model. As the muscle car wars began to heat up, Oldsmobile made the
442 a stand-alone model instead of just an option package to focus
on increasing the performance of the car even more. By 1970, they
had reached the pinnacle, offering a standard 455 V8 engine rated
at 365hp with a host of go-fast options available. This particular
442 is a three-owner car the most recent owner acquiring it in
1975. The car was cherished by the family and eventually retired
from daily driving duties. At that point, a complete nut-and-bolt
restoration was commissioned to restore the car to exact factory
specifications. It was refinished in the original shade of Astro
Blue Metallic, a correct blue convertible top was installed and
matching blue interior complete with bucket seats was
reupholstered. During the restoration process, the body was taken
off the frame and down to bare metal, the original matching-numbers
engine and transmission were rebuilt, and every detail was
addressed. Once the highest-quality restoration was completed, it
won First Place at the 2011 Oldsmobile Club of America Nationals
and took Best in Class at the 2012 Oldsmobile Club Pacific
Regionals. From the factory, the car came well-equipped with
options like air conditioning, performance 3:23 posi-traction axle,
power disc brakes, automatic transmission, deluxe steering wheel
and more, all documented on two original Build Sheets.
Additionally, the car comes with a binder of restoration photos,
receipts, original Protect-O-Plate and various other paperwork f
