Vehicle Description

Vehicle Description 1970 Oldsmobile 442 Convertible. I am proud to present this excellent example of a 1970 Oldsmobile 442 convertible. This car is a true survivor from the past. All engine, transmission, and rear-end numbers are correct and matching. This is an investment quality car. There is no rust at all, anywhere on this; car! This car has spent much of its life in Bakersfield California, which for those that are not familiar with that location it is a very dry climate. Of the years it was in Bakersfield it sat stored in the back of a garage up on blocks, for at least 10 years time, maybe longer.; It was then sold to a gentleman in San Diego California who revived the car to driver status. The engine was pulled and resealed, an Edlebrock carburetor was installed, all suspension bushings were replaced, all shocks replaced with high-quality Bilsteins, all springs replaced with heavier duty units - the rear springs included airbag suspension, new heavy-duty sway bars were switched with the stock swaybars, new BFG tires and American racing alloys were installed, a full alignment was performed, and anything mechanical that was not up to par was rebuilt or replaced. The car was then used as a weekend driver. With the very little use this car has seen over the years it has only accumulated 85,914 actual miles (not 185,914 miles). Read on for more information. ; Please take a look at all of the pictures and read all of the information below before asking any questions. There is a large amount of information and many pictures listed below.  One of the very hottest GM cars to hit the street in 1970 was Oldsmobile's 4-4-2 series. Drafted from Cutlass and F-85 variants, the beefy 4-4-2 was welcomed into dealers' showrooms for its third season as a five-passenger coupe, a five-passenger hardtop and a drop-top convertible. Sizzle is what 4-4-2 did best standing still. Now fully evolved as a muscle car, engineers gave the Olds heavy-duty springs, stabilizer bar, special shock absorbers and wheels, special emblems, hood louvers, unique paint stripe, special tires, and a high output engine. A 455 CID high compression V-8 churning out 365 horsepower was introduced in the 1970 model. It would be the largest ever offered. ; This car was also used as the official pace car for the 1970 Nascar series.; ; This particular 442 features. The original 455ci engine numbers match the VIN New Edlebrock carburetor with w/electric choke.  Original Rochester is included 3 speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission 85,914 original miles Power convertible top Power disk brakes Power steering A/C original. 12 bolt rear end 15?
