Oldsmobile 442 1969 Description

This 1969 Oldsmobile 442 convertible combines iconic bodylines with serious speed. It's a real-deal code-4467 convertible, which makes it rare. And it has been upgraded to a 455 V8, which makes it unbeatable.There are very few designs from this era that could say both "sporty" and "luxury" so well. This convertible has all the great dramatic curves, flared fenders, and a handsome front end that was instantly recognizable as being from GM's rocket division. It's coated in its factory-correct Blue Turquoise paint, which has been professionally re-sprayed for a terrific premium glossy finish. All the details are correct on this car from the 442 badging, to the trim line that starts at the headlights and follows the Coke-bottle silhouette all the way to the taillights. And of course, Oldsmobile's color-matched Rallye wheel package is a must-have for a cool cruiser like this.Beneath the pristine black folding soft top is a pristine black interior. The textured bucket seats, door panels, and carpeting all feel fresh and show no signs of being left out with the top down. This level of presentation is a great reminder that the 442 is a muscle car for family and friends with enough room to carry five in wide comfort. But that shouldn't surprise you. After all, Oldsmobile was about providing a premium feeling over the standard cars of the day. So that's why you also get great features like the wood paneling on the dash, four-spoke sports steering wheel, and power folding top complete with glass rear window and boot cover.Olds fans were a bit confused in '69 why GM didn't lift its displacement restrictions and allow the larger 455 cubic-inch V8 in the hot 442. This car rectifies that conundrum, and the extra large Olds big-block is under the hood for a more potent muscle car. The Rocket 455 V8 looks terrific filling the engine bay with its golden goodness. Plus, there's an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and headers to add even more muscle to this machine. This added power fires up with authority and makes a great rumble as it exits out of the dual exhaust (yup...400+ cubic inches, four-barrel carburetor, and dual exhaust it lives up to the namesake of the 1969 Oldsmobile 4-4-2!) As usual with an Oldsmobile, no matter how much power it's putting down, it still has the luxury of all-day usability. This comes from features such as a TH400 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes. Even the classic redline tires hide the more modern grip of BF Goodrich radials.You're looking at the perfect mix of vintage cruising droptop and adrenaline muscle machine. That's why we know a classic like this won't stay long in out showroom. Call today!!!
