1971 Oldsmobile 442. Viking Blue with white Convertible Top. Original numbers matching 455 engine. Turbohydromatic 400 Transmission with factory Air Conditioning. Pearl White (not Parchment) interior with Bucket Seats, full console and factory 8 Track Player. I have upgraded the stereo system to a RetroSound System with Bluetooth and kick panel speakers. The convertible top is power and in very good condition. I am the second owner of this car which I bought in 1982. I drove it for some years before I got around to doing a restoration on it. It is an older restoration that is still in excellent condition as the car has been garaged all it's life. The engine is rebuilt with approx. 35,000 miles and the trans is also rebuilt. I have owned this car for approx. 41 years and have lovingly taken care of it and never beat on it. Overall, the car is in excellent condition but not perfect. Body and paint are excellent (no dents or rust) but there is a peppering of small paint chips, that I have touched up on the bottom of the fenders and quarter panels. The car never required a frame off restoration as I have owned it since it was 11 years old and the previous owner and myself have always garaged it, meaning is has virtually never seen any bad weather in it's life and has been kept out of the sun. I have maintained a folder that contains receipts and documentation dating back 30+ years. This car still has all 5 of it's original SSI Chrome Wheels, original dash pad, most of it's original sheet metal and original factory firewall markings. I have the original Broadcast Sheet, Window Sticker, Protecto-Plate, Owner's Manual and the letter that was sent to the original owner who ordered the car new, by Oldsmobile, thanking him for the purchase and providing him with the new vehicles VIN. This 442 was also professionally appraised in July 2023 at over $ 79,000.
Generally speaking, this car checks all the right boxes for a well kept classic muscle car. It runs great, it looks great and all the accessories work including the A/C. It's been a blast to own all these years and has provided some great summertime fun and memories.
