For Sale is a rare 1973 Oldsmobile 442. 87000 original miles. 350 rocket. The beige interior is in excellent condition. A thorough tune-up of new plugs, cap, rotor, wires, coil and points using Accel parts has been completed. A new carburetor and exhaust were also installed. New tires and chrome rims were added to the car last year. The original wheels are also included, along a new hood liner. The car runs excellent! The body is in great condition and the frame is solid. The suspension on this car is great and the car rides nicely. This car gets more attention at cruise nights than the older model 442s because you never see these models any more. It's a real head-turner.
I purchased this car from Ohio four years ago and have enjoyed driving it to local shows in the evening. It was stored at a local shop over the winters so it did not see any snow or salt. Now priorities have changed with the arrival of my son and I don't have time to devote to all my cars anymore so I need to sell at least one. This is the one I had the shortest time so it's the first to go. I have pretty good records from the previous owner and some info from the owner before that dating back to 1978. I have all the records for the car since I owned it. It's a very nice car but not a pristine show car. I'm also asking half of what a pristine show car might run. Make me a reasonable offer and the car could be yours.
Disclosures: I don't see any rust on the car. I'm sure it has been refinished at some point in its life. The paint is in good condition but there are a few small imperfections. The panels are straight with no noticeable dings. There are no bondo waves in the body when looked at from an angle. The inside of the trunk shows no prior bodywork. The interior is in excellent shape. The swivel seats have no tears and little to no wear. The driver's seat needs restitching on one corner, but no tears. The dash is not cracked and the headliner is in great shape. You'll be very happy with the interior. Mechanically, the car runs great and starts well. I have had no problems with it at all. It shifts hard when it is cold but that goes away when the car warms up. The A/C is not in working condition. I don't know what it would take to make it work but all the parts are there. It doesn't look like anything was ever removed. I go to car shows regularly and have another 442 that I compete with so I am very critical of cars. I would call this car an extremely nice driver to have fun with and take to cruise nights. It could become show quality with a little work, which was my intention what I bought it. Overall, it's a nice, affordable classic car and a very reasonable price.
I recently lowered the asking price to $9,400. I am open to negotiation so that I don't have to put it in storage again. I am not hurting to sell it and am not desperate so please don't waste my time with low-ball offers. The asking price is already very reasonable for such a rare car in this condition.
