1969 Oldsmobile 442
350 CI V-8
12 Bolt Rear
Power Front Disc Brakes
We are showcasing a very nice 69 442. The paint and body work are extremely nice. The power top is in very good condition and works as it should You will see this in our video. As per the VIN# the car codes out to be a 442 convertible. This model has a 350 ci engine painted gold, which we researched as being an option. At first we thought this might be a clone, however now we believe it is a real 442. It appears the engine is not the original however. We have shown all of the numbers on the engine and body tag.
This appears to not be a matching numbers car, but has correct components. Someone has changed the valve covers and air breather from original to aftermarket. We do not have the originals. The engine compartment is clean and the core support is solid. We did not detect any rust on this car. The interior is in good condition, not perfect, but very presentable. The under sides of the doors are solid with no rust. The dash has no cracks and is in excellent condition. All 4 of the 215/70R14 tires and factory wheels are in excellent shape. There is a small imperfection in the top here in the front, and the vinyl covering over the windshield is coming loose a bit. The trunk is in excellent condition, and includes a new spare and matching wheel and jack.
The rear window is glass. The undercarriage is a little dusty, but very solid. We found no rust here either.
