Allmän beskrivning :
This 1972 Oldsmobile 442 is a true treat with its correct factory color combo, A/C interior, and the numbers-matching 455ci big block inhaling through those big fresh air scoops in the hood. And that's just the beginning of a long list of great classic details and solid investments. So dig into all the info on a Olds that just wants to make your muscle car classic dreams come true.
They always say save the best for last, and so a 1972 Olds 442 is absolutely worth collecting. This was the final hurrah for the second-gen Cutlass body, and the form-hugging bumpers and fastback-like style is now a true legend. The factory correct Viking Blue paint was updated later in life, and so that means it retains a modern clearcoat luster in the sunshine. We can also see there's been plenty of care to make sure the gaps and panel fit are looking good, too. Plus, there's a coordinated and sophisticated sporty style with the white double stripe running down both sides and the streaks on the hood showing off the big air scoops. The 1972 cars need a buildsheet to verify the full 442 status, but this one carries all the right indicators, right down to the notched rear bumper that accommodates the dual exhaust. And this has all the classic muscle car features you love, including details like the hood twist locks and the color-matched Olds Super Stock III wheels.
If you like the white accents of the exterior, then you're going to love the full white interior. But where the exterior stripes are for showing off the sporty side, this Olds also adds in luxury, too. There's a great vintage style with the button-top upholstery and plenty of wood-like trim. There have been recent investments in the right places to keep this looking good, including fresh carpeting and newer door panels. And we love the details like the working dome light and clock. Of course, the heart of the car's appeal is all the driver-ready features. You get the Oldsmobile sports steering wheel mounted on a tilt column. There are desirable classic features like the tic-toc-tach, and they are joined by worthwhile upgrades like the auxiliary gauge trio under the dash. Plus, the it's always awesome to see the Hurst His and Hers dual gate shifter. The stereo has a vintage style, but it's really a more modern AM/FM digital tuner. This also has the rare option of power windows, so you never have to leave the driver's seat to show off the pillarless hardtop profile. There's even cold-blowing R134a air conditioning so you can enjoy this feeling even in the summertime. Oh yes, this is the classic coupe that you get to easily roll down all the windows, crank up the tunes, and go driving around all weekend without breaking a sweat!
The last year for this generation 442 could be had with any motor, but we all really know there's only one we all want. That's why it's so desirable to see the numbers-matching big 455 cubic-inch V8 under the hood. Especially because the functional W25 Ram Air hood directly feeds fresh air to the four-barrel carburetor. More than just big muscle, there have been the right recent investments in the fundaments, including the starter, fuel pump, and electrical. It makes for a coupe that fires up promptly and commands authority from the rumble of the dual exhaust. The stout TH400 three speed automatic transmission handles power swiftly, and even the receipts indicate the torque converter was re-done in 2015 (a $1,500 investment all on its own.) Features like the power steering, power brakes, front discs, and sway bars front & rear make for a powerful car that's also a fine all-around driver.
The sale comes complete with build receipts, maintenance records, and a car cover. We even have a list of $15k worth of investments in just the last year alone ranging from paint to hood hinges. It all shows this is a well-respected true muscle car that loves to impress in the details. Call now!
