Your first thought is to click through our inventory of second generation Chevelles. But, as nice as all those Super Sports are, they're just a bit too common. Then, your mind migrates to team Chevelle's flamboyant cousin: The Pontiac GTO. Problem is, the second generation GTO, with all its stripes and bolt-ons, is just a tad over-the-top. Frustrated, you think: there's always Buick, but good luck finding a good one. And then you remember the humble outfit known as Oldsmobile. GM's technology division definitely created some of the nastiest stoplight warriors ever unleashed on American roads. And this fully restored 442 is a prime example of their 'bar brawler in a tuxedo' philosophy. Featuring an original, 455 cubic inch Rocket V8, a tough 4-speed transmission and flashy looks that swap '70s glam for middle-of-the-road sophistication, it's a car that's nice enough to covet but not so pristine you'll be afraid to hit the road. If you're in the market for a great alternative to GM's traditional stars, there are few cooler cars than this sweet Oldsmobile hardtop! BODYWORK/TRIM Assembled in Lansing, Michigan during the second week of February, 1971, this awesome Oldsmobile is an impeccably restored classic that's benefitted from an extensive, ground-up restoration. During that thorough reboot, the car's solid profile was decked in correct Viking Blue base, trimmed with sinister W-30 stripes and sealed in glossy clear. And today, this coupe rolls as one razor-sharp classic that's primed for both the street and the show! 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 Olds, a black and silver grille hangs a black 442 emblem between a small rocket badge, clean T3 headlights and a guarded bumper that's finished with clear parking lamps. At the top of that grille, a fiberglass ram air hood anchors stainless tie-downs opposite like-new glass that's framed in polished stainless trim. At the sides of that hood, 442 and W-30 fender emblems lead a clean profile that reflects traditional door handles and thin door guards in dent-free wheel rings and body-matched sport mirrors. And at the back of the car, a 442 branded decklid hangs a large wing above pristine taillights, a second guarded bumper and trumpeted exhaust tips. ENGINE It's not immediately apparent why this coupe'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's branded with a correct 396021F casting number and a matching partial VIN. Stomp the throttle and a restored Quadrajet 4-barrel mixes juice from leak-free fuel lines with wind that's supplied a familiar 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 Packard TV R Suppression cables, which snake around correct H heads, and stamped and painted valve covers. Below those covers, restored exhaust manifolds shoot charred dinosaurs in to big, true-dual pipes. Mechanically, the stout mill is all day reliable, spinning 370 lb./ft. of rock-crushing torque from one of the largest and most p
