For starters, the car must be in tip-top condition. In some instances, determining that is as easy as looking at pictures. But it always helps to have some form of documentation of either a thorough restoration or serious survivor chops. Speaking of documentation: the more, the better. In summary, what we're looking for is anything that can tell the car's story or confirm its exclusivity. And ultimately, the market will directly reinforce that exclusivity, as cars of the same quality often sell for close to the same price. By those standards, this incredible 442, a fully documented car that stayed with its original owners for over 23 years, is definitely investment grade. It wraps an original 455/4-speed drivetrain in correct blue on black aesthetics. Those strikingly handsome visuals were achieved through a $150K, body-off restoration. And since world class GM A-Bodies continue to be a sure bet for impressive gains and solid returns, it's easily some of the hobby's most desirable metal! BODYWORK/TRIM Assembled in Lansing, Michigan during the fourth week of February, 1970, and sold through Aloha Motors of Honolulu, Hawaii, this awesome Olds is a lights-out classic that recently benefitted from a detailed, professional restoration. Prior to that 2014 reboot, conducted by Mike Mancini's American Muscle Car Restorations Inc. of North Kingstown, Rhode Island, the car spent 23 years with its original owner: A Navy veteran who traded up from a '65 Corvette. And today, a mere 100 miles out of its rebirth, this 442 rolls as one razor-sharp coupe that mixes correct Twilight Blue 2-stage with correct Black trim and vivid W-30 war paint. Like all second generation A-bodies, the 442 continued to get better year after year. The car's clean, boxy lines were no doubt a play on its parent division's engineering leadership within the GM hierarchy, and the resulting design continues to weather exceptionally well. At the front of this classic, a 442-specific grille centers monochromatic 442 lettering between stainless-trimmed T3 headlights and a mirrored bumper that's finished with clear parking lamps. At the top of that grille, a fiberglass ram air hood leads the eye to like-new glass that rides behind straight stainless trim. At the sides of that hood, traditional GM handles and color-keyed sport mirrors perfectly complement clean marker lamps, dent-free wheel rings and a slick combination of 442 and W-30 fender emblems. And at the back of the car, a smooth decklid hangs more monochromatic 442 lettering above a second mirrored bumper, silver-trimmed taillights and correct, trumpeted exhaust tips. ENGINE It's not immediately apparent why this Olds's body carries so much sizzle; that is, until you see what's under its hood. Twist the locks, fling the resin and you'll find 455 cubic inches of Rocket V8 that hangs a correct 396021F casting number over a matching partial VIN. Stomp the throttle and a restored Quadrajet 4-barrel mixes juice from leak-free fuel lines with wind from a correct W-30 air cleaner, and shoves it in to a Winters high performance intake. At the back of that intake, a traditional points distributor feeds fire through proven Pack
