This is the kind of car you want to collect. It's a 1966 Oldsmobile
442 with plenty of documentation to indicate that most of the
important components are correct and original. So it's time to dig
into the details of this full blue package that has big V8 power
This is a great generation to own a 442. These first few years are
when they seemed to have balanced sophistication and speed
perfectly. This one shows it off particularly well. It has an
elegantly detailed style with form-hugging chrome bumpers, flying
buttress rear, and a full-length trim that flows over the flared
wheel arches. This is believed to be a three owner car with a
long-term second owner. So you see the care in ownership by the way
the well-creased body lines remain looking so crisp. It also helps
that the factory-correct Royal Blue was resprayed less than five
years ago. It was a quality application that's still smooth to the
touch. But while that gives you a great-looking classic, there's a
performance car on display, too. It's a muscle car hardtop with a
wide/imposing grille, large dual exhaust tips, and boldly colored
442 badges. The theme of merging premium and performance is so
comprehensive, it's even on the wheels. That's why you have Olds
wire wheel covers with classic-style redline tires.
The factory-correct light blue interior looks terrific against the
exterior dark blue. The intricate design on the seats and door
panels are the kind of things Olds fans really look for at the car
shows. And the bucket seats with a center console in-between will
certainly keep you comfortable. The details here are great - from
the smooth dash to the plush carpeting. It has a great mix of
preservation and investment to keep the atmosphere vintage. Even
the correct AM radio and vacuum gauges are still there for display.
But this is also set up to be a true power muscle machine. That's
why the dual-spoke steering wheel gives you a great view of the
gauges, and your right hand will love resting on the floor
We all love the look of the Oldsmobile golden motor under the hood.
And you'll love being about to tell people that the casting codes
confirm this is a rare era-correct 442-specific 400 cubic-inch
block. And with known ownership of this car, it's believed to
retain its original drivetrain. While that is the kind of history
we love in a muscle car, this era is all about power. So it's
awesome to see it upgraded with the best from its era at GM with a
triple set of Rochester dual-barrel carburetors. This monster motor
fires up nicely, and it makes a great sound out of the dual
exhaust. The Muncie M21 four-speed manual transmission gives you
full control over the full power and speedy soundtrack. Plus, you
have power steering, boxed rear suspension arms, and sway bars
front and rear to give you the right driver confidence in this
The sale comes complete with the original warranty card, owner's
manual, title documentation, and handwritten notes about the
previous owners. This is the full-blue 442 that has a terrific
sense of prestige and power. So you know you need to get your hands
on this special coupe. Call today!!
