The Oldsmobile 4-4-2 (also known as the 442) is a muscle car
produced by Oldsmobile between the 1964 and 1987 model years.
Introduced as an option package for US-sold F-85 and Cutlass
models, it became a model in its own right from 1968 to 1971,
spawned the Hurst/Olds in 1968, then reverted to an option through
the mid-1970s. The name was revived in the 1980s on the rear-wheel
drive Cutlass Supreme and early 1990s as an option package for the
new front-wheel drive Cutlass Calais.
The "4-4-2" name (pronounced "Four-four-two") derives from the
original car's four-barrel carburetor, four-speed manual
transmission, and dual exhausts (Some maintain that the '2'
indicated a limited-slip differential). It was originally written
"4-4-2" (with badging showing hyphens between the numerals),1 #fn1
and remained hyphenated throughout Oldsmobile's use of the
designation. Beginning in 1965, the 4-4-2s standard transmission
was a 3 speed manual along with optional 2 speed automatic and 4
speed manual, but were still badged as "4-4-2"s. Because of this
change, from 1965 on, according to Oldsmobile brochures and
advertisements, the 4-4-2 designation referred to the 400 cubic
inch engine, 4 barrel carburetor, and dual exhausts. By 1968
badging was shortened to simply "442", but Oldsmobile brochures and
internal documents continued to use the "4-4-2" model
