This big bad beautiful silver Pro-Street 1970 Oldsmobile 442 is for sale in our Louisville KY showroom. The 4-4-2 name derives from the original set up of the first car that debuted in 1964. The set up was just that a 4 barrel carb, 4 speed transmission and dual exhaust. Pretty much everything desired on your first generation muscle cars. Some people, even to this day, think that 442 is the cubic displacement of the motor but in all reality Oldsmobile never made a 442 CID motor. They did however make a 400 cubic inch big block and in 1965 it was the motor of choice for the Cutlass 442 cars. Now , being that you could get an automatic, the 4-4-2 stood for 400 CID, 4 barrell, dual exhaust. Sales would steadily rise through the first generations 4 year span topping out at a tad over 25000 units. The 1968 model year would see the 4-4-2 become its own model and not just an option any longer. This 70 is a great example of these timeless machines. With 25195 actual miles you can tell this beauty looks to be in great condition. This 442 comes with loads of paperwork including the original build sheet, window sticker, and protecto-plate. The silver with black stripes looks just like it did when it left the factory over 46 years ago. Pop the hood and the 400+ HP 455 cid motor looks right at home, especially with the Chrome Valve covers and air cleaner. Mated up to a turbo 400 this is one of the easiest driving big block muscle cars to drive. WIth the huge amount of torque being produced, these 442's were known for laying down some of the nastiest blackest burnout's that you have ever seen. Hence the reason this car was tubbed, so that a huge set of steam roller tires could be tucked up under the fenders.
