1966 Oldsmobile 442

In 1966, Oldsmobile redesigned it’s mid-sized series with an all new exterior shell that included a pronounced hump over the rear windows and large C-pillars that extended beyond the rear windshield. The most exciting news was under the hood as the 400 V8 now packed 350hp and could be boosted up to 360 hp with the new optional W-30 tri power carburetor set up. With a long list of options that ranged from transmissions to eight axle ratios, the 4-4-2 was met with much enthusiasm. As always for Oldsmobile, handling was important and the 4-4-2 performance option remained top-notch in it’s field with suspension upgrades and other heavier-duty parts. Critics and fans dubbed the 4-4-2 as one of the best handling muscle cars yet.
