This 1965 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 is wolf in wolf's clothing. That's because while you know a 442 is already performance car, this one has a larger V8, fuel-injection, four-wheel disc brakes, a four-speed auto, and plenty more upgrades. It makes for a true classic that truly knows how to hit the streets.

We already love this for being a top-level car. Oldsmobile made less than 12,700 drop-top Cutlass in 1965, and that makes this one a rare find over half a century later. These have stand-out styling with full-length trim, crisp sheetmetal, and chrome bumpers that hug the form (a true Olds hallmark during this golden era.) This one really upholds that style nicely with a quality look. And the factory-correct Target Red paint sets the right tone for the more aggressive 442. Plus, the badging and dual exhaust have the right muscle car attitude, and the upgraded Ridler wheels hint at big investments beneath the skin.

This white convertible top has a premium style, but with the flip of a switch, it powers down to reveal an even more impressive interior. After all, red interiors are the perfect way to showcase performance and sophistication all in the first glance: and that's what the Olds 442 was all about. Bucket seats, a center console, auxiliary gauges, and Oldsmobile's four-spoke sports steering wheel are all part of a package designed to be a great driver.

The engine bay looks clean, tidy, and absolutely mean. After all, the golden glow of the Olds V8 is a special style that continues this car's performance and premium presentation. The first "4" in the 4-4-2 designation for 1965 meant 400 cubic-inches, but this one does it better. It has a later 455ci powerhouse. And not only do you have added displacement for more power, but this is also topped with a modern FAST electronic fuel injection system. It maximizes the power and consistency of this big V8. Plus, you'll just love the rumble of the header-fed X-pipe dual exhaust. There's also an MSD ignition, serpentine belts, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan in this total quality setup. Because this Olds is both a performer and a cruiser, you have nice driving features, like power steering, sway bars front & rear, newer busing, and four-wheel power disc brakes. And the 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission is a stout unit that makes it easy to cruise near or far thanks to overdrive.

This rare Olds 442 drop-top is also an awesome fuel-injected total package machine. So you know it's hard to resist this upgraded muscle car convertible. Call today!!!
