For Sale: 1966 Oldsmobile 442 in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

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!
