Classic Car Overview

This 1965 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 Convertible is a wonderfully restored, well-documented Real Deal 4-4-2 convertible! In 1964, Oldsmobiles GM sister brand changed the course of automotive history when Pontiac released its performance-oriented GTO package and kicked off what would become the muscle car era. Of course, muscle car aficionados know that the muscle car was born when Pontiac took mid-size car and placed its large 389 cubic inch V8 into it with the GTO package. In an effort to stay on pace with Pontiac, Oldsmobile repackaged its lesser-known Police Pursuit package into its own new performance-oriented package, the 4-4-2 which was released in the middle of 1964 on the F-85/Cutlass midsize platform. In its initial year, 4-4-2 stood for a 4 barrel carburetor, 4 on the floor 4 speed manual transmission, and 2 (dual) exhausts. The 442 package also included a 330 cubic inch V8 along with heavier duty suspension and cooling components. The following year in 1965, Oldsmobile replaced the 330 V8 with a larger 400 cubic inch V8 and made an automatic transmission available in the 442. When Oldsmobile made these changes however, it was also changed what 4-4-2 stood for; so, in 1965, 442 stood for a 400 V8, 4 barrel carburetor, and dual exhaust. Style-wise, the 1965 442 was largely unchanged from the 64 model however Olds did add a pair of faux air scoops on the rear quarters, removed a piece of chrome trim at the beltline, and added a chrome air cleaner atop the new 400 CID V8. By 1965, muscle cars began to gain traction among consumers and Oldsmobile ended up building 25,003 models with the 4-4-2 performance package in 65. This particular example comes to us from a southern-based owner along with the window sticker and protect-o-plate. Powering this 65 Cutlass 442 is a 400 cubic inch V8 engine fed by a single 4 barrel carburetor that together were said to have created a whopping 345 horsepower when new. The 400 V8 is backed by a 4 speed manual transmission that makes this Olds muscle car an absolute blast to drive! Exhaust exits this 442s powerplant via a dual exhaust setup that generates a fantastic throaty sound out of the rear tailpipes. Riding on a set of redline radial tires mounted on white painted steel wheels finished off with chrome wheelcovers, this 1965 Oldsmobile has a great look and even better ride. A drivers side mirror is a welcome addition since it makes squeezing in or out of a tight parking space much easier. The black vinyl power convertible top looks great and it goes up and down with the simple flick of a switch. The exterior of this 65 Cutlass 442 has been correctly refinished in beautiful Provincial White paint completing the exterior look of this muscle car. The interior of this 1965 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 Convertible is absolutely stunning! The front bucket seats and rear bench seat have been correctly reupholstered in beautiful black vinyl. The matching door panels, black carpeting, black padded dash, and steering wheel are all in great shape and all appear to remain in their stock configuration. The instrument cluster is equipped with a 120 MPH speedometer and fuel gauge, along with indicator lights for the generator, engine temperature, and oil pressure. The dash is finished off with a cigarette lighter, ashtray, and locking glovebox. Whether youre adding to your existing collection of muscle cars or youre buying your very first classic car, this 1965 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 Convertible would make a wonderful choice.
