This 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 W-30 has received a frame off
restoration completed by Klassic Rides of Denver, NC. Over 1,200
photos documenting the restoration are available on their web site.
The suspension and all elements of the interior including wiring
and electronics were restored/replaced with a focus on maintaining
the original look and feel including the rare Hurst Dual Gate
shifter. The 455 cu. in engine with outside air induction hood,
runs smooth and strong and has been driven less than 2,000 miles
since a rebuild by the longtime auto mechanic owner. The engine bay
is painted and arranged as original except for the starter motor
bracket which was modified to hold the starter away from engine
heat. Particular attention was paid to the suspension to provide a
firm and stable platform while cornering under power. Klassic Rides
finished the restoration with a beautiful gold & black paint that
matches the original factory production (per the data plate).
Independent research has confirmed that this is an original 1970
W-30 however the front fenders and grill are from 1971. Engine
block casting and aluminum intake castings are as shown on the Data
Plate. The original trunk springs, trunk spoiler, rear sway bar,
and lower boxed control arms are in place and conform to the unique
W-30 (only) specifications. This Cutlass has been beautifully
restored and gives a clean powerful driving experience.
