This 442 has the optional black vinyl top. The original Rally wheels and radials are included in this sale but they have been replaced with a set of Cragar wheels and Firestone wide oval bias ply tires to get the Hurst/Olds look.

The shifting duties are taken care of by the Turbo 400 transmission while the horsepower is put to the ground by the GM differential. This 442 is equipped with front and rear sway bars which provide incredible handling. One of the prime years for muscle cars was 1969 and the Oldsmobile 442 was a true player. Do not pass on this important piece of history.
