In 1968, the 442 became an official Oldsmobile model. Previously an option package for the Cutlass model, the 442 became synonymous with performance. 4-4-2s, originally representing 4-barrel carburetor, four-speed transmission and dual exhaust, were built for sheer performance and luxury. 1970 was the pinnacle year for Oldsmobile in terms of performance engineering. The horsepower arms race was at its peak in America and Oldsmobile was not going to be outdone. It's success in the race was confirmed as the 442 was chosen as the pace car for the Indianapolis 500 in 1970.

This 1970 442 is the result of an outstanding frame-off restoration. The matching numbers 455ci V8, the first 455ci engine ever allowed by GM, is tied to an automatic transmission, both of which were rebuilt during the restoration. When you approach the car, it becomes obvious that the nearly $18,000 invested in paint was well spent as the Hugger Orange with white longitudinal striping defines perfection. On the inside, the car's Parchment interior pops against the black carpeting a wood trim dash. This 442 is loaded with options, including Air Conditioning, power top, twin-scooped fiberglass hood,bucket seats, power steering, front disc brakes, bucket seats, Hurst Dual Gate shifter and more.

Unless stated otherwise, mileage shown on odometer is exempt and unknown if original.
