1972 Oldsmobile 442 442 w30 hardtop Additional Info:

Up for auction is my original paint numbers matching 1972 442 w30. I bought this car in 1998 as a complete original car with 105719 miles on it (has 106731 on it now). Though it ran it was in need of a mechanical rebuild. Engine was bored sealed power pistons were added in the complete rebuild as well as comp cams extreme energy camshaft and added comps adjustableroller rocker set. all new bearings and the big valveheads were rebuilt to stock. During the rebuildI replaced the original intake with a reproduction (original goes with it) and also replaced the original 4 coreradiator with after market (the original also goes with the car). Any items that came on the car that were replacedgo with it. I have built many olds 455 engines and this combination works very well for a stock rebuild, its not radical and allows the big olds 455 tomake power the way it was designed too (tons of low end torque and good mid range) combined with the 3.42 rear it makes for a solid performing package. Transmission and front suspension were also rebuilt at that time. My intentions was to rebuilt the mechanics get it road worthy and then start on the repaint/restoration and take it racing in the pure stock/fast series racing. Life and manyother projects got in the way and now 18 yrs later for better or worse it isin the same condition as I purchased it other than its roadworthy and runs very well. As for the condition of the car it is a very solid South Carolina car that still wears most of its original paint other than minor blending/repaint on passengers door and fender above the w30 stripe and the obvious primer and patina. The extent of rust on the car can be seen in the picture with the dime taped to the lower passenger quarter.The trunk lid was replaced at some point with an original paint matching color to the rest of the car ( sequoia green). A sharp eye will noticea trailer harness plug has been added to the rear bumper. Interior is in good original shape, head liner needs replaced, bench seat though not the original to car but of correct 72 gm vintage will need recovered. Car has been stored in a climate controlled shop for as long as I've owned it. This car originally came as a bench seat column shift turbo 400automatic car without any frills other than the sport wheel and mirrors. It doesn't have the factory tachometer and gages, it was ordered without them. It does have a vintage indy tach mounted on the column that I thought was way too cool to remove. It's nothing fancy but it is a w30. If you're not familiar with the w30 package please do your research, it's allotmore than just a big motor.
