1 of only 142 Sport coupes made with the W-30 performance package
and a 4-speed! #s matching motor. Believed to have 31,200 actual
miles. Rust free original metal. This is the almighty 442 muscle
car. The post coupes were popular with the drag racers because they
were typically the cheapest, lightest and the stiffest. 1970 was
the peak year for Oldsmobile horsepower. The W-30 was the top dog
and when ordered with a 4-speed, the cam was even hotter.
Therefore, this is one of just 142 of the most potent Oldsmobiles

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
