1970 Oldsmobile 442
1970 Oldsmobile 442 with the desirable and rare W-30 performance option. But this car goes far beyond being a W-30. In the stunning color combination of Sebring Yellow with White interior AND the dual-gate automatic transmission, Am/FM 8 Track and air conditioning. We’ll be willing to bet that this is the only example with these features. Leading to the… reason this car has been on many magazine covers and articles. The W-30 option included the venerable 455 cu in V8 with the fiberglass hood with integrated air ducts feeding into the low restriction air cleaner. The engine was tuned for greater performance, making sure that this was not your mothers Buick! The automatics used for the W-30’s used the dual-gate Hurst shifter and were tuned especially for the car. The power is delivered through the 3.42 Positraction rear end. We love the iconic red fiberglass inner fender wells that separate the W-30s from other 442s. Whether looking inside the hood or outside the fender wells, the red panels are impossible to miss! And the minuscule amount of weight they save might help the 0-60 time by .000001 seconds!
