The 4-4-2 (also known as the 442) is a muscle car produced by Oldsmobile from 1964 1987. Originally it was introduced as an optional package for the F-85 and Cutlass models. The 2nd generation was introduced in 1968 which is when the 442 became its own model. In 1969 the changes were subtle and included a division tooth between the grilles, the wing windows were deleted, trunk lid inlets were added for the tail lights and headrests were added to the front seats. This particular example is believed to be a 4 owner car with 38,268 original miles. It retains its original 396026 400ci V8 engine that was professionally rebuilt by Jimmies Motor Rebuilding Co. out of Peru, IL in August of 2021. At the same time the original T400 transmission was also rebuilt and both now have less than 1,000 miles on them. It is fed via an Edelbrock 4 barrel carb and Performer intake. It is sparked by an electronic ignition and exhaust is handled by a set of performance headers and a new performance dual exhaust system which sounds just plain nasty when you get into it. At the same time the engine was rebuilt the suspension received new springs and pads and the brakes received a new master cylinder, wheel cylinders and lines. It also received new steel braided fuel lines, vacuum lines, transmission lines, coolant lines, a new water pump and a new radiator. It was repainted in its original color of Red about 20 years ago which has held up very well but is starting to show its age. All the weather stripping was replaced when the engine was done as well and everything lines up and closes as it should. The interior is all original with the exception of the B&M slap shifter and the aftermarket gauges. Everything works as it should except for the voltage meter and the gas gauge. When it was repainted it was also upgraded with the W-32 dual snorkel air intake which is 100% correct. Pictures of the engine casting and serial #s are posted below. The car is an absolute pleasure to drive and in need of nothing but having a couple of gauges repaired. Based on the current NADA values we would conservatively appraise this beauty at $49,600. We have priced it much lower than that to get her sold quick so if you like what you see dont wait until it is too late to contact us!
