For Sale: 1966 Oldsmobile 442 in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

A 1966 Oldsmobile 442 hardtop dressed in bold red is already an attractive package. But this restomod means you're upgraded in all the best ways. That includes more comfort with pieces like the bucket seat A/C interior. And there's more performance, too, with the professionally built 455 V8, five-speed, and four-wheel disc brakes.

The wide and imposing design, pillarless hardtop profile, full-length trim, and a hint of flying buttress in the rear are all that make the 1966 Olds 442 the ideal balance of sporty and sophisticated. And the full-length black pinstripe shows off the Coke bottle curves while also coordinating with the black in the grille and rear panel that make this coupe look more aggressive. The red paint helps announce you have an extra-hot restomod. There's a good gloss on what's an overall driver-quality finish. So while you can always upgrade to a show-ready style, you'll likely agree the appearance is already ideal for a driver-ready coupe like this. After all, they have stealthily added plenty of better driving upgrades. That's why the wheels look like classic mags, but they are really modern 17-inch alloys with modern performance tires.

The black interior looks good against the distinctive red exterior. The details here are great - from the smooth dash to the full lighting package that greets you when you open the door. And those 442 floor mats add a nice splash of color within the deep black style. This is the kind of car you're going to enjoy with family and friends, and so you'll appreciate well-integrated upgrades like cold-blowing air conditioning and a retro-style AM/FM stereo with Bluetooth. This mix of vintage and modern is especially nice for the driver's package. You have the front bucket seats with a center console in-between. There are cool factory-style gauges like the center-mounted vacuum readout and the 442-correct tach mounted on the side of the dash. These are joined by nice upgrades like Bosch auxiliary readouts and a factory Hurst shifter that showcases this car's extra gear.

This coupe exceeds the '66 Olds 442 specs. It starts with a larger motor, the 455 cubic-inch V8. It has a show-ready style with the golden block classic GM hoses, and an overall tidy style. But what you'll really love is the substance behind the style. This big V8 was built by a local Olds specialists with parts and guidance from Bernard Mondello Racing. Plus, it has go-fast goodies like a Holley four-barrel carburetor and headers feeding the X-pipe dual exhaust and Pypes mufflers. It's even already set up to accept a fuel injection system. We have a long receipt file documenting over $32k invested since 2011 in creating terrific restomod. It includes an upgrade to a TKO600 five-speed manual transmission with bronze synchro rings. This feeds a strong rear end that was rebuilt in 2019 that now runs a versatile 3.23 with Positraction. There are even upgraded rear trailing arms, a sway bar, and Bilstein shocks. Add in power steering, hydroboost power brakes, and upgraded four-wheel discs, and this is a beastly coupe that's also easily tamed.

Power, comfort, and style are all part of an impressive package built into an iconic hardtop. So since you know how good this coupe is, you also know how quickly you have to act to make it yours. Call today!!!
