1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 Additional Info:

You're looking at a real-deal 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass S 442 with its numbers-matching 455 V8. And while that's already tempting enough, you should really dig into the details, paperwork, and investments that make this cool coupe a great muscle car cruiser.
Viking Blue is a great factory-correct color to have on an Olds. Plus, this one has a more modern respray that lets the sunlight highlight the curves in the profile. So this one really loves to showcase one of the best hardtop styles of the muscle car era. The intricate white stripes emphasize the aggressive details in the hood and the flare of the fenders. And it coordinates with the premium white vinyl roof to give this coupe the right balance of power and sophistication that the 442 is known for offering. This same dual nature can be seen with the chrome bumpers where they stylishly hug the form of the car, and at the same time, the rear ones are notched to accommodate the big dual exhaust tips.
Black interiors are always great in aggressive muscle cars. But the nice recent investments here also uphold that premium Olds atmosphere. It's really a pleasant to spend some time thanks to the fresh feeling on the upholstery, headliner, door panels, and carpeting. They even got the details right with the button-top presentation on the seats and doors. And the wood-like trim warms up the atmosphere nicely. But what you'll love the best is how the driver is the true priority. That means front bucket seat with a center console in-between. And did you spot the Hurst "His n Her" dual-gate shifter? You have the correct Oldsmobile sports wheel, and beyond that is the cool factory round gauge trio including speedo and tach.
Under the hood is exactly what you want to see - a numbers-matching 455 cubic-inch V8. There's even some added style and substance with the bright Edelbrock air breather, newer alternator, steel braided coolant lines, and AN fittings. These are the kind of investments that make for a strong-running powerhouse. The mighty V8 fires up readily as it inhales deeply from the Rochester Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor. And it exhales with added authority from the glasspack-style dual exhaust. This one handles its performance nicely thanks to the stout numbers-matching TH400 three-speed automatic transmission (and don't forget about the control of the dual-gate shifter.) This is built to be a driver with power steering, power brakes, and front discs. Plus, there are some nice performance pieces, like the reinforced rear trailing arms w/sway bar, and the grippy ZR-rated tire that come for the upgrade to modern 18-inch Boss Motorsports wheels.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual packet and factory buildsheet that shows this is proper 442. It all makes for an irresistible package you know needs to be in your garage. Call today!!
