Lot #710 - 1971 Oldsmobile Hurst-equipped, 455ci Ram Air 442 W30. Matching numbers W30 engine package, 455cid engine, transmission and rear end. The W30 option featured numerous enhancements, including a balanced and blueprinted version of the 455 using a higher-performance cam, special Quadrajet carb and high-flow dual exhaust. A twin-scoop forced-induction fiberglass hood was sealed to the vacuum-operated air cleaner to optimize breathing. Underneath, the W30 was outfitted with plastic fender liners, FE-2 suspension and posi-traction differential. Of the 1,304 442 convertibles built in 1971, only 110 were W30 convertibles. A complete rotisserie restoration has returned the car to factory-fresh state, including the blueprinted cold-air 455. Originally Lime Green and upgraded to dazzling GM yellow finish with black W30 striping that works very well with the bright red inner fenders and all-black interior and top. The interior was updated from green to black. This example is especially well-optioned and retains its documented born-with factory options: power steering, power brakes with front disc, power-operated top, power windows, tinted glass, custom sport mirrors, custom 4-spoke sport steering wheel, push-button radio with rear speaker, Super Stock I wheels, sport console with Hurst Dual Gate shifter, wood-grain inserts and Rally gauges. GM of Canada-documented.
