The Oldsmobile 4-4-2 was always at the forefront of the muscle car movement in the 60's and 70's leading the way with some of the largest power plants ever offered by General Motors. The 1970 version was the pinnacle of performance from Oldsmobile with an enormous 455 cubic inch big block V8 producing 370 horsepower and a neck-snapping 500 foot pounds of torque, like found in this W-30 optioned model. This 4-4-2 is a true survivor in every way and is 1 of 262 Sports Coupes ever made. Sporting its factory numbers matching powertrain this muscle car has stood the test of time and is in exceptional original condition. Finished in what we believe to be the original Silver Platinum, this 4-4-2 has the unmistakable Rally Striping Package as well as red inner fender wells. It is well optioned with the aforementioned W-30 package which added functional air scoops and low-restriction air cleaner, aluminum intake manifold, special camshaft, cylinder heads, distributor and 4-bbl Rochester carburetor. This time capsule also included from the factory air conditioning, power brakes, power steering, bucket seats, center console and much more. Nicely documented with the original Oldsmobile Protect-O-Plate, original Owner's Manual, original brochures as well as ownership paperwork dating back to new. They say a car is original only once...well here is your chance to own one of the most important vehicles of the muscle car era...in outstanding survivor condition.
