Rare V-Code. #'s match throughout

Rare V-code 442. #s matching motor, trans, rear, carb and colors. 71,599 actual miles, same owner since the late 1980s. Very nice, unabused condition. California built car. The V in the vin number designates this is a 4-speed car and the motor is 20 hp more than the standard 455. We don't know exactly how many were made but it was hundreds, not thousands.

EXTERIOR: Very solid, straight car. I didn't find any problem areas, no bubbles or rust. The panels fit real nice. Original quarter panels. Repainted it's original Pewter Silver color. The metal flake is laid out evenly and the clear coat is glossy. The black W-29 stripes are nicely painted on. A rear spoiler, sport mirrors and no vinyl top add to its muscle appeal. The chrome and trim is overall good. The rear bumper has the cutouts for the exhaust which was on the 455 cars only. The 442 grills and the taillights are excellent. Jambs are clean, weatherstrips were replaced. Original glass, the windows are tinted. The SS wheels are good original shape.

INTERIOR: Unabused. The dash area is not broken, cut or bear up. It has the rallye gauge cluster and the famous tic toc tachometer. It also has rare 4-speed console in great shape. The carpet is real nice, it has a set of reproduction Oldsmobile mats. It also has complete set of GM seatbelts. The seat upholstery is very nice, headliner is tight, door panels are excellent. It also features a sport wheel and rear defroster.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Vin # matching original 455 motor. The V code cars used a W-30 cam and heads. This engine was professionally built locally by Powersource. It was magnafluxed and balanced. On top it has a Pertronix ignition hidden under the stock cap, ultra rare original Quadrejet carb unique to a 4-speed car and dual snorkel air cleaner to a V code. It was upgraded with a set of headers which are covered in heat wrap.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It is clean and complete. Solid metal with no rust or patches. Neatly spatter painted. The silver is painted real slick. It has working trunk light and power trunk release. Excellent weatherstrip, decals and correct 2 piece mat. It also has a 5th matching spare tire and wheel. Complete jack assembly and lug wrench.

UNDERSIDE: Underneath this car looks to be very solid and proper. It has the rallye suspension which includes swaybars and boxed rear control arms. The front end components are clean, look like they were rebuilt/replaced. In back the bushings, springs and shocks look very recent. It has a dual exhaust with crossover pipe, Flowmaster mufflers and the correct trumpet tips. The brakes were the originals which helps verify the low miles. They have been recently rebuilt. The e-brake is hooked up. Now put the motor it's clean Vin # matching M-20 Muncie 4-speed. It was a 3.23, now upgraded with a 3.73 posi. It also has an aluminum W-27 cover.

This is a genuine investment GM muscle car. Rare, authentic and desirable!

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.
