You're looking at a real-deal code-44 1970 Oldsmobile 442 hardtop coupe that's been restored with great extras, like an overdrive transmission and cold-blowing air conditioning. And not only will you love this for being a big V8 muscle machine, but it's also a TV star, too.
The appeal of this coupe is as clear as black and white... literally. Bright white paint is bold choice, but then again, the 442 is quite a bold muscle car. Dual hood scoops, hood locks, and notches in the rear bumper to cradle the large dual exhaust tips – it all looks awesome. And the full black stripe package does a great job of highlighting all of this aggressiveness, including the drawing extra attention to the flared fenders. And the restored black vinyl roof is soft to the touch, so it drives home the premium feeling of an Oldsmobile... and at the same time it really showcases the sporty Holiday Hardtop profile. Bright chrome bumpers, shining bezels, and proper Super Stock II wheels complete this total package. But while this is an awesome muscle machine, there's a bit of extra fame here, too. This is a celebrity as a features restoration on the TV show Desert Car Kings.
All the black trim on the outside gets you ready for the full blackout presentation inside. Handsome bucket seats with an intricate button-top insert really kickoff a total package of both premium and performance. In fact, the darkness is broken up by premium walnut wood-like inserts on the door panels, dash, and center console. You've got terrific classic pieces like the Olds performance steering wheel and even the original AM radio is still on display. But you can also tell they made the right investments in upgrades. After all, the R134a air conditioning means you get to stay cool while looking cool in this hardtop. And the full iEquus gauge package, including the large tach, really lets you enjoy what's in the engine bay.
Under the hood is exactly what you want to see – a 455 cubic-inch V8. And with a solid investment here, it looks great with everything from polished components, to crisp new inner fenders. But what you'll really love are all the investments around the V8. The proper Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor gets extra help from an Edelbrock aluminum intake. And this exhales with added power and authority as long tube headers feed the dual exhaust. There's plenty of great V8 power, and now you get better ratios to enjoy it thanks to the upgraded 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive. That gearbox really helps fulfill the 442's dual luxury and performance mission, and so do features like power steering, front disc brakes, and sway bars front & rear.
A cool celebrity with the best features – this 442 really get it right. So if you love turning heads, and always having a story to tell, call today!
