Lot #1256 - This particular Oldsmobile 442 sport coupe is truly a step back in time. It has spent it's recent life in a museum and private collection and there have been very few miles driven since being refinished, cosmetically refreshed and preserved to original as much as possible. It has it's original matching numbers motor, transmission and rear differential and came from the factory finished in Matador Red with black interior. It is powered by the most powerful power plant available, the very rare optional W30 455cid high performance V8 with a close ratio 4-speed transmission and posi-traction rear end. Documentation shows that this beast was special ordered through Holiday Oldsmobile in Illinois on February 16, 1970 and delivered to its owner the following month in March. Until recently, this car was still titled in the original owners name and that original title is also included. Impeccable iron clad provenance also includes the original Window Sticker, dealership sales invoice, receipt for payment, special order invoice, owner's manual and two Build Cards. A rotisserie pictorial and break down and decoding of the vehicles major components and numbers, and W30 documentation, statistics and literature. Only 262 W30 sport coupes were produced in 1970, of those only 142 were optioned with the 4-speed transmission. Only a handful of authentic documented real deal W30's remain in the world today.
