You can view more photos, video and information on our website: V8vintage.comVehicle Description: This one has the 442 look you want as well as the performance and power to go with it. The Bright Red paint is slick and the body alignment is very good. According to the VIN and data plate it is an original matching numbers V8 4spd with only 61,000 original miles! This 442 is the most desirable red exterior with black striping and black interior. The exterior is in very nice condition. There are only some very minor paint defects that are pointed out in the photos and described below. You can also see in the photos the shine and reflection of the overall body, very nice!
This car as it is now starts right up and drives great! It has a racy note through the dual exhaust. The engine is powerful and easily breaks the tires loose if your not careful (or if that is your intention), and the transmission operates properly. Lots of 442 options. The car has factory power steering and factory power front disc brakes as well, making driving enjoyable and effortless. This one also has the lightweight inner fender wells, the functional fiberglass Ram-Air hood also for a weight savings and better engine aspiration, and finally the functional Ram-Air intake assembly. We did find that this car also has the 442 performance rear trailing arms. A very great looking, great driving classic!
Tires are decent on original vintage wheels with great looking paint and trim and matching valve stem caps. The trim is all in pretty great original condition. This car has been stored indoors in a private collection. All of the glass is good and works perfect. The radio works like new and the glovebox is in good condition. The 442 sport steering wheel is in good condition and the horn operates properly. The interior is in great shape. The seats appear near mint and very comfortable. The driver seat belt latch appears to have a bad spring in the button and sometimes take a few tries to catch. The gauges and lights work except tachometer reads low, as if it is not properly calibrated. The weatherstripping is in aged but good condition and appears to be all there. The car runs and drives amazing. I have driven it alot for testing and pleasure and it is alot of fun and gets alot of attention. The car has no mechanical problems. We are confident that the miles are original. This car also comes with a cool miniature 442 keychain so you dont forget which car the keys go to.
It has all the visual horse power you could want as well. It has the W30 spoiler and wide stripe 442 appearance package.
The exhaust is true dual with the correct tips and really calls out when you open up the secondaries. Being red and black with bucket seats, 442 trim, Rally Wheels and a 4 speed with Ram-Air options you couldn't find a nicer combination and it makes for a great collectible or pleasure vehicle. Don't miss out on a chance to own one of the more desirable Olds from the 70s, ready to enjoy now.
