A real-deal 1966 Oldsmobile 442 hardtop dressed in a distinct and
vibrant color makes for a great muscle car look. It is the right
mix of vintage and upgraded that you're going to see all over this
muscle car hardtop.
The 1966 Oldsmobile Cutlass is already a great-looking car. The
extra-wide headlights and stacked tail lights gave these a mature
appearance that let them own the road. And while a premium Olds can
be a straight-laced coupe, this 442 has a serious wild streak. It
is painted a special color called Seraph Orange. It's a GM color
that has a deeper red-like tone than even Hugger Orange, and
there's a great metallic element to let it radiate even more. So
it's a great way to have a bold look while still staying in the
General Motor family. This also has all the classic style with the
dome-hugging chrome bumpers, tri-color 442 badges, and iconic
Holiday Hardtop profile. And the feeling of modern and vintage
comes together nicely with classic Torq Thrust wheels done in a
larger size to better fit modern tires.
The interior has an intricate seat pattern, stylish door panels,
plenty of wood-like trim, and even a working dome light. So it
makes for an attractive and vintage style. The center console is
one of those features that not only add comfort but also is an
instant prestige symbol, too. The dashboard is one of those great
exercises in driver dominance. The big chrome panel houses
everything, including the stock AM radio that's still on display.
But while you'll enjoy the vintage look, you'll also love how much
this is a driver's machine. The big round gauges have the right
supplemental pieces, including upgraded readouts for the oil
pressure, power, and water temp. Plus, the AutoMeter Sport-Comp
tach is mounted prominently on the steering column.
We all love the look of the Oldsmobile golden motor under the hood.
And you'll love being about to tell people that this is a rare
era-correct 442-specific 400 cubic-inch block. 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 a Holley four-barrel
carburetor, Edelbrock intake, MSD ignition system, and newer H-pipe
dual exhaust. This monster motor fires up nicely and loves to hit
the road. You even have a 4.11 rear end for powerful take-offs. And
this is a solid all-around driver. Power steering, a three-speed
automatic transmission, power brakes, upgraded front discs, boxed
rear arms, and sway bars front & rear all give you the right driver
confidence in this 442.
The sale comes complete with build receipts and the owner's manual.
Bold, powerful, vintage, and upgraded, this Olds 442 has the right
total package to be irresistible. Call now!
