1970 Oldsmobile 442 -- Additional Info:

A real-deal 1970 Oldsmobile 442 that's in its correct factory triple-black, and it's loaded with everything from an A/C interior to the original 455 V8 under the hood. Oh yeah, this is what muscle car dreams are made of. This Olds was born to be the bad boy. Slick black paint with a black vinyl roof showed that this luxury Olds had a serious dark side. Plus, the full-width rear spoiler, form-fitting rear bumper with proper exhaust tip... notches, and correct SS1 wheels add plenty to the intimidation factor. These hardtop coupes had some of the best lines of the era, and this one does a terrific job of showing it off thanks to the full white pinstriping package that highlights the flared fenders and dual power bulges in the hood. You can see it all so nicely because this coupe was restored in 2015. The black interior completes the ultra-desirable factory triple-black package (exterior, roof, and seats.) But more than just a legendary color combo, this is in-demand for its Olds-quality luxury. You get handsome button-top seats, and in-between the front buckets is the optional center console. There's plenty of burled walnut applique on the dash, door panels, shift knob, and console. The three-spoke steering wheel gives you an excellent view of the full round gauge package. And this one looks correct, right down to the factory air conditioning controls. Because this is still pumping plenty of cold air, you remain feeling cool while looking cool in this pillarless hardtop. Under the hood is exactly what you want to see - the original 455 cubic-inch V8. There has been a solid investment here during restoration, and so the bright blue block truly looks like it's radiating power from within the engine bay. Beneath the correct Olds 442 air topper is the correct Rochester four-barrel carburetor (also believed to be original.) There's a thunderous presence as an upgraded header package adds even more power as it contributes to the rumble of the dual exhaust (Yup...400+ cubic inches, four-barrel carb, and dual exhaust - it's a true '70 Olds 4-4-2.) The stout TH400 three-speed automatic connects to a 12-bolt rear end to make sure all the power properly gets to the pavement. The correct FE2 suspension - including boxed control arms and sway bars front & rear - give this muscle machine the right heavy duty backup. But no matter how much power it's putting down, this one still has all-day usability of an Oldsmobile. It comes from features such as power steering, front disc brakes, and the grip of BF Goodrich T/A radials. Something this special needs the right paperwork, and so the sale comes with the factory buildsheet, original warranty card, owner's manual, and restoration receipts. A turn-key total package muscle machine like this never stays idle for long, so don't miss out. Call now!
