Oldsmobile in the early days of motoring were famous for their first mass produced Curved Dash as well as their luxurious high quality Limited and Autocrat models. In the immediate postwar era they became positioned in the General Motors lineup as a mid-range car for successful middle class people. In the 1950’s Oldsmobile continued as a very nice quality car and was credited as becoming the first real muscle car in 1949 with the introduction of the “Rocket” V8 which was place in Oldsmobiles relatively smaller and lighter cars compared to the big heavy cars put out by other companies, some still with dated straight six and straight engines. Fast forward to the 1960’s, Oldsmobile had really swayed towards luxury and did not put so much effort into marketing their mechanical performance. It all changed in 1964 with the introduction of the 4-4-2 package for the F-85 Cutlass. The new 4-4-2 offered amazing performance and with that, Oldsmobile saw entry into the muscle car wars. New exterior design came in 1966 and again in 1968. Under the hood these cars were equipped with Oldsmobiles powerful 400 c.i. overhead valve V8 with a 4 barrel carburetor that produced 350bhp at 5,000rpm. The 4-4-2 has gone down in history as one of the most famous and best muscle cars of the era.
