Oldsmobile 442 1967 Description

You know how everyone wants triple black car, but what about triple red? Well, when you see this 1967 Oldsmobile 442 W-30, you will understand just how special this all is.The 1967 Oldsmobile Cutlass is already a great looking car. The extra wide headlights and stacked taillights gave these a mature appearance that looked like they owned the road. But this straight-laced classic coupe has a serious wild streak thanks to its 442 packaging. The Holiday hardtop body, Mag wheels w/redline tires, and all the correct tri-color 442 badging was the ultimate statement of cool. But really it's that paint that grabs you. The red has a hard shine that makes it worthy to be with mirror-like chrome bumpers and rocker trim. It's an overall appearance that tells you someone invested heavily in the right restoration.Open the door, and you'll instantly remember what premium was like in the late 60s. 'Most of these muscle machines look best in black, but it's hard to argue with a nicely restored red interior on this Olds. After all, with the exterior paint, red wheel wells of the W-30 package, and the red interior, you can tell people this is a triple-red coupe! But more than just a cool description, the restoration has made this looks fantastic. The interior is pristine, which is nice because it's tough to retain the correct intricate stitching on the door panels and the bucket seats. The center console is one of those features that not only adds comfort, but also it's an instant prestige symbol, too. The dashboard is one of those great exercises in driver dominance. The big chrome panel houses everything including the heat/defrost controls and original style AM radio with enough space to give them each their own zip code. Big, round gauges fill the instrument panel ahead of the driver and they are in original condition with crisp markings that seem to hover over the needle spinning behind the speedo. The final piece for the driver is the grippy three-spoke steering wheel that lets you take full control over this 442.Open the hood, and the first thing you notice are the dual intake hoses feeding the chrome air grabber. That's the unmistakable sight of the performance W-30 package. Below that is the hallmark Olds golden block for the 400 cubic-inch motor, and that has the ultra-desirable 390925E casting. Best of all, according to the consignor, you're looking at the numbers-matching V8 in this American muscle icon. The whole engine bay has a great presentation that shows an investment into a proper restoration. So it is quite factory correct, aside from a few nice upgrade such as the 1968 W-30 heads. Part of the fun of owning a '67 is getting to tell the story about how the 400 ci motor was the maximum GM would allow in its production intermediates at the time. But this 442 is less about talk and more about driving. Fire up the big V8 and let the rumble be your conscience. It's a powerful brute when you want, but it also never loses the Oldsmobile premium core. So features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and modern BF Goodrich tires, make this a comfortable cruiser whenever you desire.Complete with all the right paperwork, including a huge file of receipts and the Protect-O-Plate from Olds, you know the significance of this 442 that you're viewing. So hurry on rare triple-red treat before someone else grabs your dream Olds. Call today!!!
