1967 Oldsmobile 442 Convertible
When it comes to 60s GM muscle, Oldsmobile enthusiasts often spend years searching for a clean, numbers matching car that's worthy of investment grade money. But every once in a while, a pristine rocket hits our website and causes a BIG commotion which results in a flood of calls and one lucky buyer finally cashing in on a rare opportunity. My Advice...Call NOW!
Benefitting from a frame off rotisserie restoration, this car was brought back to life in a big way. Totally redone, except for an engine rebuild which included the installation of later model cylinder heads, and just cleaned and painted, this car has rarely seen rain, or any bad weather. As I said, Call NOW!
Panels were painted with direct to substrate build primer and then hours of block sanding. After this process, 2 coats of Triple Saffron base and a clear coat which I'm just wild about. At this point all re-chroming was initiated, as well as the consignor polishing all the stainless...for days to get the shine he needed. Well minded gaps now showing, some black pin striping at the top of the fenders through the door sills, and nicely ribbed rocker covering just at the bottom of the doors and not on the actual rockers. The convertible top is new and has a totally clear rear plastic window and moves up and down flawlessly. 14-inch Magnum 500 wheels are wrapped with red line radials. A large panel dual headlight curved in the rear tail light, a big steel slabbed car looking beautiful when that top is dropped.
Making use of the structures of the seats which were totally rebuilt with foam, and wrapped with Saffron vinyl to match the new door panels, and a fresh roll of gold carpet, bring this interior right back to the pristine state. Notable horizontal and vertical thin strips of chrome accent the door panels, along with power window toggles, door actuator and side view mirror joystick. The low back buckets with tuck and roll inserts and smooth bolsters and euro design headrests sport seat belts in gold. A rear bench in the same pattern as the buckets has some nicely padded armrests complete with ashtrays. While the seats were redone, the vinyl material was not stretched tight enough and has resulted in some wrinkling. Also, a very good condition tonneau Saffron colored top cover is showing. A sleek styled center console houses a glovebox, and the Hurst shifter. In front just above a Saffron metal bottom strip is a dark brown padded vinyl dash. In its center is an aluminum panel which shows very well, and houses the A/C vents, AM/FM radio, power top button, and A/C and heat controls. On the driver's side are 2 large round gauges showing speedometer and a tic toc tach just behind the original steering wheel which is also looking good. Power steering, power brakes, and a power antenna are all here and working. Gold carpeting is flooding the floors. Call me mellow yellow.
After extensive research and casting numbers check we know we have a 1966/67 400ci V8 442 Block. A check of the head stampings and these are not correct as they decode as 1967 through 1969 425ci/455ci V8 Cylinder heads. A single 4-barrel carburetor is atop and this number runs through as a 1967 AUTOMATIC engine carb. The intake is correct. A 4-speed manual Muncie transmission is on back, while it is a 1967 unit it carries a VIN stamp from another vehicle, and power goes through a 10-bolt 3.23 posi rear axle.
Fully stripped and recoated with rustproofing black paint, we now see power disc brakes up front, and power drums for the back. Independent coil spring suspension up front and a 4 link with coil springs on back.
A fine runner and great cruiser. All the power options work save for the rear driver's side window which only works from rear drivers side seat switch, the tachometer does not move, and the top control switch has a tendency to stick. All else is just working swimmingly.
All buttoned up and painted with a matching color way for the interior, that being Saffron. With the engine power, and good looks a car that you truly can be wild about! Come on down.
