For Sale: 1972 Oldsmobile 442 in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1972 Oldsmobile 442 tribute nails true muscle car appeal in all the best ways. A cool/coordinated color combo, cold-blowing A/C, and a big V8 make for the kind of muscle car we all dream about, but few get to hold.

It's hard not to get instant attention in a coupe done in such a bright yellow. But it takes more than just the right hue to look like this. The finish has a nice depth and shine to let it radiate in the sunshine and moonlight. It's impressive, but it's about being a driver rather than a show car. After all, this is what the 442 style is all about. And this one gets the muscle car look right with a black stripe package that includes the hood, trunk, and running the entire length of the sides. Plus, there's a terrific stance with the upgraded racing alloys with the extra wide set of Firestone Firehawk tires.

The black accents of the exterior get you ready for the all-black interior. It's quite clean, dark, and inviting. This has a nice vintage style everywhere, from the working dome light to the button-top upholstery. But you'll like how this one is built to be a driver. Front bucket seats, an armrest center console, a floor shifter, full gauges with tach, and an auxiliary readout trio make the driver's seat a command position. Features like the upgraded stereo and cold-blowing air conditioning are great for rolling down all the windows and going for a drive in this hardtop.

Under the hood, the desirable 455 cubic-inch V8. While it takes items like a build sheet to prove a true 442, the fact that the VIN tells us this was a big motor car with an era-correct block makes this one quite attractive. The four-barrel carburetor, Champion aluminum radiator, X-pipe dual exhaust, and Flowmaster mufflers keep this Olds running strong and growling with power. Lowering springs in the front, boxed trailing arms in the rear, a rear sway bar, and those extra meaty rear tires give it the right muscle car stance and feel. And when it's time just for cruising, the strip, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission make for an all-around solid driver.

When you have a bold color package, an A/C interior, and plenty of V8 muscle, you know you have an irresistible Olds. Don't miss this deal. Call now!
