One of the highest optioned 442s! About 35 options, some I've never
heard of. #s match and heavily documented. Ground up restored to
factory specs. It looks and functions like a new car.
Documentation- 2 build sheets, order form, pre-delivery check list,
invoice, window sticker, protect-o-plate, glovebox pouch, manuals
etc. It also has complete owner history. It was bought new for a 16
year old girl, we have a letter from talking about the car.
EXTERIOR: Outstanding fit and finish, better than new. Every inch
is laser straight, panels fit precisely. No rust or damage. It has
1970 only sport mirrors and inside hood lock. Gorgeous factory
Twilight Blue metallic without a vinyl top. It is laid out evenly
and polished like glass. Jambs are detailed. Really, this paint is
amazing. Correctly painted on silver stripes match the wheels. The
bumpers fit really well and are rechromed. Emblems are new.
Stainless is all straight and polished. Rare optional chrome on top
of the doors. Grills, lenses, weatherstrips are all excellent.
Windshield was replaced. Restored wheels. Reproduction Wide Oval
tires still have the nubs on the tread. Extremely rare Night Watch
headlights, they stay on for one minute after the car is shut
INTERIOR: Excellent throughout, unabused. Full of options too and
they all seem to be functioning. Of course the upholstery, door
panels, headliner and carpet looks like new. The knobs, switches
and trim all look new too. It has power windows, locks and seat. It
even has power seat back release. In between the bucket seats is a
mint console with the Hurst dual gate shifter. On the floor is a
set of reproduction floor mats and mint set of deluxe seatbelts. On
the tilt column is cruise control and a sport wheel. The dash area
is mint. It has optional clock and speed minder. It also has an
Am-Fm stereo and 8-track player. Correct mesh rear speaker tray
with window defogger. It even has the Oldsmobile vanity mirror.

Jac Pac Delco air shock system. Suspension and steering were

Looking up at the motor it is very clean. Original Turbo 400
automatic transmission with its 1970 tag still riveted to the side.
The driveshaft was restored. In back is a 12 bolt posi with 3.08
gears and the W-25 finned aluminum cover.
I love this car. I've been doing this my whole life and I'm going
to tell you this one is exceptional. Fit, finish and function is
awesome. Everything I tried works down to the night watch lights,
seatback release, 8-track player, light on the mirror and on and
on. The list of options, amount of documentation really sets this
442 apart from the others. The factory colors are highly desirable.
I even love how the car sounds, deep and lopey. This could be in
the world's best collection or in your garage. Whoever gets it will
not be disappointed.
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for
virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant
amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my
professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to
assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are
answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video
that explains the car's condition in detail. **These cars are
displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car make an
appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment
there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car,
your admission will be refunded and you will be given a 1 year
