Real 442, #s match. Show quality, gorgeous!

Wow, what a car! Real 442 with #s match 455 and very desirable factory colors. Show quality in and out. Stunning good looks with its stripes, scoops, and spoiler.

EXTERIOR: Very desirable born Viking blue without a vinyl top. Real ram air hood with no cracks and it fits right. The body is laser beam straight from rockers to the roof. No rust or damage. Repainted its original Viking blue without a vinyl top- code 26-26. The paint is laid out evenly with a highly polished clear coat. The stripes are painted on properly and smooth to the touch. The fit and finish is show quality. All the chrome, emblems, stainless trim looks like new. Original bumpers were sent to Utah for rechroming. New weatherstrips and window seals were replaced. New front and rear glass. I love the modern SS1 wheels. They are 17 inch billet with performance tires.

INTERIOR: I'm sitting inside this car and it is pretty much immaculate. Down on the floor is new carpet with matching embroidered mats. The bucket seats have been completely restored with cushions, upholstery, headrests, plastic trim, and the chrome trim. In between the seats is a restored center console with a Hurst dual gate his and hers shifter. In front of me the dash, bezels, vents, knobs, heater controls look like new. It has a rally pack gauge cluster and the Tik Tok Tachometer, the clock is actually ticking. Inside the glove box is the digital screen for the fuel injection, it also has a pouch with the manuals. It has retro stereo and kick panel speakers. Door panels have been replaced including the armrests. The headliner is new and tight, visors are redone. The mirror is new, it has original set of seatbelts. Interior lights work.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: It has its original numbers matching 455 motor that's been rebuilt. It is all stock including manifolds, valve covers, and the ram air system is functional. It was recently upgraded with a FAST fuel injection. Rebuilt air conditioning system blows cold. It has a hydroboost power brake and steering system. Every component looks clean. The entire compartment looks proper and complete.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Inside the trunk is completely clean metal with a very neat coat of gray and white spatter finish. It has the correct 2 piece felt Oldsmobile mat and a matching tire cover. It also has complete spare and jack assembly including the lug wrench. Under the trunk lid and jamb are painted smooth and glossy. The weatherstrip is replaced, I can see new insulation behind the back seat. It also includes a new 5th billet wheel for a spare.

UNDERSIDE: It has the rally suspension which includes front and rear sway bars, boxed rear control arms. The front end steering and suspension has been completely rebuilt. Rear suspension has also been rebuilt with bushings, springs, and shocks. Great sounding dual exhaust with stainless Magnaflow mufflers and correct trumpet tips going through the bumper. The fuel system was completely replaced and upgraded for the fuel injection system. Disc brakes up front, e-brake assembly is hooked up. Looking up at the motor it's clean, starter looks fresh, has a new flywheel cover. The trans has been upgraded with a rebuilt 700R-4 overdrive automatic. The rear end has an aluminum W27 cover. The floors are rust free clean original metal with a lot of the factory primer still showing!

Conclusion: This is one of the good ones. Fit, finish and function are all impressive. Everyone is going to look at this one. In just the first few days we've had it I've heard lots of compliments. Do you like compliments? Yes, well then buy this car!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail. **These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car, make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded, and you will be given a 1 year membership.
