Oldsmobile 442 1972 Description

Up for sale is an original, ocumented 1972 Oldsmobile 442 with the W30 option.I have GM of Canada documentation on the car, ut in 1972 the "X" in the VIN denotes the vehicle as the real thing. The car originally isa white bucket interior and Radiant green exterior.The car runs and drives nice, ut it really needs someone to restore it. As the photo's will show, he car needs work but can be used as is. As far as driveability the only issue is the transmission will not kick down into a lower gear when the throttle is depressed hard. The car still sports all of its original sheet metal. A brand new engine bay wiring harness was just installed.The trunk floor is still pretty decent as the photo will show. The body floor has a few minor issues but I don't believe it needs the entire floor replaced. The fenders and quarters have the usual rust issues, utthe hood, runk lid, ndlip,doors, nd front and rear window frames all appear to have no significant rust issues. The most significant issue the car has is with the frame. The car was used by a previous owner on gravel road, nd at some point the car I believe ended up ona roadside berm. I removed lots of gravel and stone from various nooks and crannies. The hood shows no sign of being hit so I assume the damage to the frame was caused from the under side and said berm. The frame was repaired and car drives straight but I want to disclose this and be as honest about the condition of the car as I can. The vehicle no longer has the original motor and transmission. It now has a 1973 Delta 455CI and I believe a 1969 turbo 400. It does have the original "TO" coded 3:73 rear end. The car currently has 3:08 Posi gears in it for highway driveability, ut the original 3:73 gears are with the car for switching back.

Original, ocumented,unrestored W30'sare starting to get harder to find. This car I believe is a prime candidate. I would rather not sell but have more cars than I can do already. I have other parts available for the winning bidder. I will be happy to answer all questions, nd have many more photo's for those interested.

Good luck bidding.
