GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1987 Oldsmobile 442 for
purchase. The Oldsmobile 442 became its own model line in 1968
after being an option package for the Cutlass. The 442 etymology
comes from 4-barrel carburetor, 400 cubic inch displacement, and
dual exhausts. The 442 is a muscle car legend with its GM Cousins
of the same famous GM A-body platform (Chevelle, GTO, and GS).
From 1985 to 1987, Oldsmobile revived the 442 moniker to succeed
the Hurst/Olds models. The package included a beefier drivetrain,
15 X 7 fully chromed styled-steel wheels with gold trim, manually
inflated air shocks in the rear, special paint scheme (always
silver at the bottom) and gold body stripe decal package,
dual-snorkel air cleaner with chrome lid, mandatory A/C and door
panel 4-4-2 emblems. 3,000 were produced in the first year, and all
were sold quickly. 4,273 were produced for 1986, and 4,208 were
made in 1987. This generation of the 442 is muscle when there
wasn't much muscle produced.
Cosmetically this car is outstanding; it is immaculate inside and
out. It is covered in Black over a Gray cloth interior. The car
rides on factory 15"x7" 442 chrome wheels with gold centers. Other
options include AM/FM/Cassette player, rear defrost, spare tire and
jack, power steering, power brakes and air conditioning. The 5.0 L
v8 runs well and is paired to an automatic transmission that shifts
as it should.
