The 1968 Oldsmobile 442 is an iconic American muscle car that holds a special place in automotive history. The name “442” originally stood for “4-barrel carburetor,” “4-speed manual transmission,” and “dual exhaust,” highlighting its performance-oriented features.

The 442 was based on the Oldsmobile Cutlass platform but was upgraded with a more powerful engine and other performance enhancements. In 1968, the 442 was offered as both a coupe and a convertible, giving buyers options based on their preferences.

The 1968 Oldsmobile 442 is highly regarded by car enthusiasts for its combination of power, performance, and style. It remains a sought-after collector’s item today, cherished by those who appreciate classic American muscle cars.

The restorer of this 442 purchased it from his brother who had owned the car since 1974! His dream was to build one with a 455 and that he did. This frame-off restored 442 has been done for 4 years and has been driven just over 700 miles since completion. It has excellent paint and body work and was taken off the frame during the restoration process. The car has tight gaps throughout and the paint has been sanded and buffed to a show quality finish. 

The 442 rides on a completely rebuilt suspension system, restored steering set up, all rebuilt brakes. It maintains the classic smooth Oldsmobile ride.
