Lot #733.2 - The name had its roots in a simple formula: 4 barrel, 4-speed, dual exhaust. As simple as it was, the 442 moniker became the symbol of a most intimidating machine, the Oldsmobile 442, but few were as instantly intimidating as this 1969 442 convertible whose triple black color scheme evokes a singularity of purpose furthered by its blacked out grille and chrome dual exhaust trumpets. Very rare 442 convertible thanks to its combination of color, 4-speed manual transmission and factory air conditioning. This genuine Code 344 442 is the culmination of an excellent restoration to complete factory originality including its 400cid Rocket V8, power steering, power brakes, wood grain sport steering wheel, bucket seats, console, power windows, remote drivers mirror and push-button radio.
