This 1969 Oldsmobile 442 hardtop is a terrific mix of powerful and premium. After all, you have detailed paint and an A/C interior. But there's also enhanced V8 power, four-on-the-floor, and that awesome stance. It all makes for the coupe that already has all the investments you really love.
Maroon is an ideal color for this setup because it has the aggressiveness of red, but with a deeper and more sophisticated tone. It's a quality application that loves to show off this car's sporty nature in thoughtful ways. For example, the good gloss lets the light show off the big flares in the fenders. The white pinstriping outlines the power bulges in the hood and gives the trunk a unique set of racing stripes. And the blackout grille goes well with the black vinyl roof. Olds gave these a ton of style in '69, like the trim line that starts at the headlights and highlights all the great curves of the Holiday Hardtop's sheet metal. Plus, we know you love the way the trunk, taillights, and rear bumper are all part of one interwoven design. But the piece that you will probably notice most about the rear is the wheels. You have the classic Super Stock style setup, except now the rear ones are a custom piece that allows for some seriously meaty rear tires and an awesome stance.
The interior was also given all the right investments on this classic. The handsome buckets have a nice intricate pattern and plenty of comfortable bolstering to perfectly deliver the 442's dual luxury and performance personality. The burled walnut applique on the dash adds to the vintage upscale feeling. Plus, you have the working Delco AM/FM radio, and the factory air conditioning is blowing cold with R134a refrigerant. And this is a great driver's car with classic elements like the four-spoke sports steering wheel and center console. Those are joined by upgrades like the Hurst shifter and full AutoMeter Carbon Fiber gauge package with handy tach.
A proper 442 means serious muscle under the hood, and this one doesn't disappoint. The big 400 cubic-inch V8 has been built right with an Edelbrock 750 CFM four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock dual-plane aluminum intake, and long tube headers. And the mild cam gives this one a great muscle car feeling and growl out of the H-pipe dual exhaust. It's a strong runner that also has the right supporting components, like an Optima red top battery and an aluminum radiator. Best of all, you take firm control with a four-speed manual transmission. This feeds a stout 12-bolt rear end with an upgraded diff cover. This one was built to be a solid driver, that's why you have power steering, power, brakes front discs, boxed rear trailing arms, and thick sway bars front and rear.
Power and comfort make for an awesome car, especially on a desirable real-deal 442. A total package like this never stays idle for long, so don't miss out. Call today!!!
