1971 Oldsmobile 442

VIN: 344871Z114213

This '71 442 scored 969 out of 1000 by the Oldsmobile Club of America and you can see why after a close look! It's finished in a beautiful blue metallic paint with a black vinyl top and has all the W30 appointments: correct block, heads and intake. It also has factory A/C, a sport steering wheel, console with his-and-hers dual-gate shifter, gauge package with power windows, trunk release, power seat, tilt wheel, power brakes, cruise control and rear defogger; this 442 is loaded with options! The exterior features a W25 Ram Air hood with black stripes, red inner fenders, rear spoiler and trumpet exhaust. She's powered by the correct 455/340hp engine with TH400 3-speed automatic transmission, which has 52,500 original miles, with less than 3,500 miles since frame -off restoration! The trunk is signed by Hurst/Olds legend Doc Watson, so she's ready to show!

A reproduction owner's manual, copy of the original build sheet, catalogs, magazines, photos of build, invoices/receipts, a 1971 chassis service manual and spare parts are included with sale!
