The 1967 Oldsmobile 442 convertible was everything you could want. It's big V8 power wrapped in a premium package, and so it's great to find such a correct-style example. This is also quite a rare piece of 60's muscle as only 3,080 real-deal 442 convertibles produced in this year.
The Oldsmobile Cutlass convertible was already a great-looking car, and the 442 package added a touch of aggression to its straight-laced style. In fact, this one does it exactly right by adding the polished Torq Thrust wheels and with larger 17-inch size. Proper 442 tri-color badging and louvered hood add to the performance attitude. This one was even upgraded from white to a sporty red later in life. But while the powerful style announces the big motor under the hood, we also love these because there's always an underlying sophistication. The chrome bumpers have the added shine of investment, and the way the rocker trim follows the car's full form was a touch of Olds elegance. So it's attractive for far more than just muscle car aggression.
Black and red are a timeless color combo, especially for powerful machines. So we are not only happy to see the crisp black vinyl roof, but with the flip of a switch, it disappears to also reveal an eye-catching full black interior. There's plenty of room for family and friends across two wide benches, but the driver is truly the king. That's why you have a fold-down armrest for true individual comfort. This has a ton of terrific vintage details, like the working courtesy lights, three-spoke Olds steering wheel, and the classic AM/FM radio that's there for display. But because this is a true driver's classic they cleanly installed under the dash an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input. That way you get to choose the best driving music for this 442.
Under the hood is exactly what you want to see. The 400 cubic-inch V8 is an era-correct powerhouse that looks exceptionally stock. So you can love it for a survivor-like presentation or give the 442 air grabber a nice polish to really make it pop. Underneath that is an upgraded four-barrel carburetor w/electric choke. The power makes a terrific rumble as it exits out of the dual exhaust (Yes...400 cubic inches, four-barrel carburetor, and dual exhaust: the namesake of the 1967 Oldsmobile 4-4-2.) Plus, features like the stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and grippy modern tires keep this big motor classic in the confident cruiser category.
The trim tag tells you this is a real-deal 442, and the exhaust tells you there's a big V8 under the hood... So this powerful convertible offers a very appealing package. Call today!!!
