The floor boards, trunk and all the typical rust-prone areas are completely solid and rust-free and the car has no signs of any accidents with a razor straight body. All the chrome has also been restored and the original spare wheel with it's jack is in the trunk.
The 455 V8 engine is extremely strong and powerful and this particular car drives absolutely magnificently - must be driven to be believed - drives straight as an arrow with no strange road wobbles, shakes or rattles - a truly remarkable daily driver that will give any modern day sports car a run for it's money!
The Oldsmobile 442 was born out of the competition between the Pontiac Division and Oldsmobile. It began as a response to the Pontiac Tempest GTO which had proved such an unexpected success in 1964. The package was dubbed the 4-4-2 based on it's combination of four barrel carburetor, four speed transmission and dual exhausts. The package also included a stiffened frame, boxed rear suspension control arms, a heavy duty clutch and four speed manual transmission, a heavy duty driveshaft, oversized brakes and heavy duty suspension package with heavy duty wheels, higher rate coil springs front and rear, heavy duty shock absorbers, a large front anti-roll bar and an additional rear anti-roll bar. The 442 became a separate model from 1968-71. It would rival any other muscle car of it's day and has a large and enthusiastic club following.
In summary, this is one great daily driving example of an iconic American muscle car and a sure-fire investment that's sure to appreciate over the years for any classic American muscle car collector or enthusiast!
