It's not just that you're looking at a real-deal code-44 1969 Oldsmobile 442 hardtop coupe... It's that you're looking at a true classic American muscle machine with a mean stance and even meaner V8 power.
The 442 has always been a balance of power and luxury, but it just seems like this one tips the scales towards performance. The red is a bold and aggressive color that has plenty of luster in the sunshine. And this has a nicely-done dark side with the blackout grilles and dual black sports stripes. The aggressive streak continues with proper 442 badging and a forward-leaning stance that is meant to be intimidating. But the classy appearance of the Olds continues to shine throughout on great brightwork like the form-fitting bumpers. And the idea of classic shine and muscle car aggression come together nicely on the Cragar SS wheels.
All the black accents of the outside get you ready for the inside. The handsome bucket seats have a nice intricate pattern and plenty of comfortable bolstering to perfectly deliver the 442's dual luxury and performance personality. In between the buckets is the optional center console that's a very desirable option. Of course, as an Olds, there's plenty of burled walnut applique on this console as well as the dash. There's plenty of room for family and friends, and even an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo to keep them happy. But this is a true driver's car at heart. The four-spoke sports steering wheel feels grippy, there's a full auxiliary gauges trio, and within all this darkness, the added AutoMeter Autogage tach is like a bright beacon of performance.
Olds fans were a bit confused in '69 why GM didn't lift its displacement restrictions and allow the larger 455 cubic-inch V8 in the hot 442. This car rectifies that conundrum, and the extra large Olds big-block is under the hood for a more potent muscle car. The Rocket 455 V8 is a true performance build with upgrades like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer RPM aluminum heads, and Edelbrock Torker intake. Plus, ceramic-coated long tube headers add even more power while also contributing to the thunder of the shortened H-pipe dual exhaust. You'll even spot the right supporting components like the MSD ignition, steel-braided hoses, and a Milodon oil pan. A stout three-speed automatic transmission feeds a 10-bolt rear end with Positraction. Plus, this has the right control out on the road with front disc brakes, air ride rear shocks, and thick sway bars front & rear.
