Description

Rocket fans the recent popularity of the 442 is a double-edged sword. On the one hand it's great that the musclebound Olds is finally getting the recognition it deserves. On the other cars like this 1969 hardtop won't be this affordable for too much longer. A quality survivor with a single repaint and some fresh chrome this 442 is highly desirable and quite reasonably priced but only for now. Repainted sometime long ago in the original code 69 Platinum Silver this 442 has a great all-of-a-piece look that typifies the best survivors. It offers the feeling of a factory-assembled car that no restoration can duplicate and thanks to decades of careful ownership it remains eminently useable and highly attractive. Nobody will argue that the 60167 miles shown are most likely authentic (but aren't documented) and the car certainly looks like a low-mile preservation piece from just about every angle. The repaint which probably happened back in the '70s still looks great with a vintage shine that looks like period-correct enamel and not shiny modern urethane and it's obvious that the bodywork has not required major surgery to get into its current state. Thanks to spending the past few decades in protected storage the sheetmetal doesn't have the usual dings from being a daily driver and that vinyl top remains in excellent shape with no UV damage or popped seams. The chrome was refinished in the '80s and remains in very good shape today. The black bucket seat interior is original and shows just how well-preserved this car really is. Sure there's some very minor wear on the seats but the original materials have a warm inviting look. Burled walnut appliques on the dash and center console are appropriate given the Old's upscale position and this one carries some very desirable options include a tilt wheel factory A/C (not connected) and a remote trunk release. Factory Rally gauges including a Tick-Tock-Tach are in excellent order with bright markings and the original AM radio still lives in the center of the dash. The back seat looks almost new as do the carpets which are protected by matching rubber mats. Hit that remote trunk release and you'll find a very nicely finished trunk with a matching wheel and redline spare tire. Part of the 442 formula included a 400 cubic inch V8 which is this car's original numbers-matching engine. With just 60000 original miles this one has probably never been opened and it just isn't necessary at this point. It starts easily and runs superbly and still looks quite good from the bright red air cleaner to the factory Oldsmobile Bronze paint on the engine itself. There are no untoward modifications and it still uses the original intake and exhaust manifolds to make horsepower the way GM intended. A stout TH400 3-speed automatic is more than up to the rigors of the Old's prodigious torque output and powers a set of 3.23 gears out back. The exhaust system is recent and has a fabulous soundtrack and you'll be impressed by just how clean the undercarriage is. Shiny factory SSII Rally wheels are maybe the best-looking GM factory wheel and wear 225/70/14 Firestone white-letter radials. 442 prices are on the move and highly original cars like this will always command a premium. The fact that it's also a blast to drive and in outstanding shape make this one very desirable A-body. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Charlotte showroom.
