From our museum collection is this 1970 Oldsmobile 442 W-30 Sports
Coupe!!! It is 1 of 262 W-30 Sport Coupes produced in 1970. It is a
correct 455 block but not the vin stamped original block. The motor
and transmission have been modified somewhat but are the correct
combination that it came with when new. This W-30 has been in our
museum for many years and has a very interesting history! It was
drag raced from 1980-1985 in NHRA competition. The driver for some
of it's drag races was legendary engine builder Joe Mondello
contributor to the Oldsmobile W-30 program! It held the Division
III NHRA D-Stock Automatic record from 1980-1982 then went bracket
racing from 1983-85. It ran it's best time of 10.90 at 125 MPH
there and was retired after the 1985 season. It has been restored
back to it's original condition but still sports most of it's
original interior. This W-30 represents an interesting piece of the
best of the Oldsmobile muscle car era!!!
