TRUE 442, 455 V8, TREMEC 5 SPD, W-30, POSI, PWR STEER, FRONT PWR DISCS, NICE!

You're looking at a real-deal 1970 Oldsmobile 442 hardtop coupe with a long list of cool modern upgrades from digital gauges to a five-speed manual transmission.

These big bold 442 coupes always look best in Rally Red. After all, they are kin to Chevy's legendary aggressive Hugger Orange. These are the sleek kings of the streets, with the fastback profile, red inner fender wells, and bulging quarter panels. This one continues to hit all the right notes with W-30 badging, ram air hood, twist lock hood pins, and spoiler on the rear deck. The intricate black stripes do a great job of highlighting the aggressive look. This A-body retains its unique Oldsmobile identity thanks to chrome bumpers (correctly notched in the rear) and a few bright stainless trim pieces that really dress it up – especially on the Olds-specific rallye wheels.

The black interior is pure Oldsmobile. The handsome button-pattern buckets have to be this perfect because they attract so much attention. In between the buckets is the optional center console that's a very desirable option. Of course, as an Olds, there's plenty of burled walnut applique on the dash, door panels, and console. And, when the wood is this nice, it actually does a very nice job of adding character to the interior. Everyone benefits from features like the AM/FM radio and heat/defrost, but this is a true driver's car at heart. The four-spoke sports steering wheel should look familiar to any Olds fan, but beyond that is a set of blue digital gauges, to give this vintage muscle machine a cool modern touch. And that's not the only interior upgrade...you have counted the gears on the shift knob right?

Under the hood is exactly what you expect to see in a 442, a big block motor. In '71 buyers really wanted a 455 cubic-inch V8 like this one. You can tell by the engine bay that this is car show ready from the moment you pop the hood. It carries a lot of original pieces like the air cleaner, but you can also see bright upgrades in the shining valve covers, and ceramic coated headers. That latter upgrade is part of a long tube setup that connects to a Flowmaster dual exhaust sytem. So you know this one has a loud bark and the bite to back it up. Part of the origins of the 4-4-2 name included four-on-the-floor, but this one goes one step further. There is a Tremec TKO600 five-speed manual connected to the monster motor to make sure you can always stay in the powerband. To make sure this reliably gets to the road, the power is sent through a 12-bolt Positraction rear end. But there's more to the Olds than just muscle. That extra gear means overdrive cruising, and the power steering, front power disc brakes, and modern Turbo-Tech GT tires all make this 442 handle nicely on a Sunday drive.

You're looking for a VIN 334 Olds 442, and you've found it, with all the right features already installed. It's priced right to move just as fast as this big-block coupe can take it. Call now!!
