This 1971 Oldsmobile 442 received a full frame-off restoration to the factory standards in July of 2008. The body was taken down to the bare metal and re-sprayed a beautiful metallic silver with black stripes. During the restoration process any area that showed signs of corrosion was replaced and this included the floor pans and the quarter panels. The 455 C.I. V8 engine has been completely rebuilt and only seen 20 miles since the day of completion.
Oldsmobile was the first GM division to join the muscle car party started by the Pontiac GTO, by placing a large engine in its midsized Cutlass model. The package originally included the best engine from Oldsmobile, a 330 C.I. V8, although the \'71 received a 455 C.I. V8, and was named the 4-4-2 because of the engines 4 barrel carburetor, 4 speed manual transmission, and dual (2) exhausts. Although these standard specifications eventually changed the \"442\" name stuck and the car became known for its balanced performance and excellent handling. Changes to the 1971 \"442\" model included the famous Force Air induction system and also the hotter cam setup started in 1970.
