This is the kind of car you want to collect. It's a 1966 Oldsmobile 442 with plenty of documentation to indicate that most of the important components are correct and original. So it's time to dig into the details of this full blue package that has big V8 power and four-on-the-floor.
This is a great generation to own a 442. These first few years are when they seemed to have balanced sophistication and speed perfectly. This one shows it off particularly well. It has an elegantly detailed style with form-hugging chrome bumpers, flying buttress rear, and a full-length trim that flows over the flared wheel arches. This is believed to be a three owner car with a long-term second owner. So you see the care in ownership by the way the well-creased body lines remain looking so crisp. It also helps that the factory-correct Royal Blue was resprayed less than five years ago. It was a quality application that's still smooth to the touch. But while that gives you a great-looking classic, there's a performance car on display, too. It's a muscle car hardtop with a wide/imposing grille, large dual exhaust tips, and boldly colored 442 badges. The theme of merging premium and performance is so comprehensive, it's even on the wheels. That's why you have Olds wire wheel covers with classic-style redline tires.
The factory-correct light blue interior looks terrific against the exterior dark blue. The intricate design on the seats and door panels are the kind of things Olds fans really look for at the car shows. And the bucket seats with a center console in-between will certainly keep you comfortable. The details here are great - from the smooth dash to the plush carpeting. It has a great mix of preservation and investment to keep the atmosphere vintage. Even the correct AM radio and vacuum gauges are still there for display. But this is also set up to be a true power muscle machine. That's why the dual-spoke steering wheel gives you a great view of the gauges, and your right hand will love resting on the floor shifter.
We all love the look of the Oldsmobile golden motor under the hood. And you'll love being about to tell people that the casting codes confirm this is a rare era-correct 442-specific 400 cubic-inch block. And with known ownership of this car, it's believed to retain its original drivetrain. While that is the kind of history we love in a muscle car, this era is all about power. So it's awesome to see it upgraded with the best from its era at GM with a triple set of Rochester dual-barrel carburetors. This monster motor fires up nicely, and it makes a great sound out of the dual exhaust. The Muncie M21 four-speed manual transmission gives you full control over the full power and speedy soundtrack. Plus, you have power steering, boxed rear suspension arms, and sway bars front and rear to give you the right driver confidence in this 442.
The sale comes complete with the original warranty card, owner's manual, title documentation, and handwritten notes about the previous owners. This is the full-blue 442 that has a terrific sense of prestige and power. So you know you need to get your hands on this special coupe. Call today!!
