Classic Car Overview

This 1968 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 Convertible is a supercharged pro touring machine that has a mean look and the meanest component upgrades to go with it. Just to start with a few we could mention the supercharged 455, the six-speed manual transmission, or the upgraded suspension. Have your attention now? The 1968 Olds was redesigned to be a more intimidating machine, and so this real-deal 442 convertible makes for the perfect starting place for a full custom performance build. The paint has the right amount of gloss to make sure this sunshine-friendly drop-top looks sleek in the daylight. But with a name like Midnight Blue, you know this has a dark side. And it only gets darker with the blackout grille, bumpers, badging, trim, and even the taillights. So of course, the black convertible top really goes well with this whole package. The American Racing Torq Thrust wheels add a hint of brightness, but their real distinction is to draw your attention to the aggressive stance and meaty rear tires. And speaking of aggressive, the hood does a terrific job of using the classic Olds lines to integrate a big power dome in the center. It lets you know theres a serious beast within, and well tell you more on that in a moment. While the roof has a good look when its in place, we bet youll love going around with the top down even more. After all, the full black package coordinates with the exterior, and theres no better way to show you mean business than the full custom roll cage. In fact, that full custom metal tubing not only adds safety, but also it makes the whole car stronger. There are more competition-ready pieces, like the Sparco four-point harnesses (front & rear). But the full impression here is about comfort, too. Its a full custom setup with a fresh look and upgraded front bucket seats with terrific bolstering. Theres a custom cup holder center console, power windows, and USB chargers. You also have a custom dash face that integrates provisions for an upgraded touchscreen infotainment system (it will need servicing to function again.) And of course, this is built around the driver. Theres a Grant sports steering wheel on a tilt column, and that gives you a clear view to the stainless AutoMeter gauges. And have you counted the gears on the Hurst shifter yet? You can tell a beast lives under the hood. Oldsmobiles 455 cubic-inch V8 loves to dominate the streets, but this build takes it to a whole new level. After all, the addition of a Paxton Novi 2000 supercharger means supercar-level power from the moment you plant the accelerator. And theres much more to this build. You have Rocker Racing aluminum heads, Rocket Racing cast aluminum valve covers, a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Wenzler intake, an aluminum radiator w/electric fans, and a wicked set of long tube headers feeding the H-pipe dual exhaust. You have full control over this big power and awesome soundtrack thanks to a Tremec T56 six-speed manual transmission feeding a Currie rear end. The suspension was built for a muscle machine like this. Theres a Global West tubular A-arm front end with coilovers. And in the rear are boxed Edelbrock control arms, Edelbrock shocks, and a thick sway bar. Plus, Wilwood four-wheel power disc brakes, power steering, grippy ZR-rated tires make this mean machine easy to tame. Most real-deal 442 convertibles would be promoted on their rarity, but this one leads with its all-out awesome power. So if you want a classic muscle car that has been upgraded to take down some serious modern exotics, call today!
