This was a video I took of my best friend and his wife after their wedding. I purchased the car in origional condition in 1999 when I was in high school. It then was a Cutlass Supreme with the origional Rocket 330 and 2 speed Jetaway auto trans. I drove it without any mods for about a year then I decided to fit a Olds 455 in it. I built the engine from a Vista Cruiser and put a turbo 400 behind it with a full manual shift. I then completely rebuilt the rear axle and put lower gears in it with the olds cone type posi. I call it a 442 but it was a CS.
I ran it down the strip a few times and it got mid 14's. One day testing on the track the float in the carb failed and ran the engin dry at full throttle halfway down the quarter mile. The resulting super lean mixture at 6000 rpm cracked #8 piston. I did not know it was damaged at the time since it was running well so I readjusted the carb a drove it home. On one of my trips from WYOTECH to home I gunned it hard up a hill and the piston let go. It was fun while it lasted.
I then removed the engine and took the car to my Chassis Fab class at WYOTECH where I completely removed the body, boxed the frame and control arms and installed an NHRA certified rollcage.
I was then deployed to Iraq for a year and then was married-----I never had the time or money to finish my project. I sold it to my best friend for $1000 and he has turned it into more than I could ever afford. There is most likely 10 grand in the engine alone and more mods are being done everyday. Its great to still be able to see the car I fell in love with 10 years ago being enjoyed today by a great friend.

1967 Oldsmobile Cutlas STK 39
Last-year body style 1967 Cutlass Supreme sports coupe that's in excellent
condition. This car has won both Oldsmobile Club of America 1st place and
Best In Class trophies. The color combination is highly desirable and
suites the sharp body lines of the '67 Cutlass perfectly. Per the firewall
tag, it's code P-P Pewter both top and bottom with no vinyl top option.
This car gets compliments on its color combination everywhere it goes, it's
perfect and will never look out-dated. Inside you'll find a black vinyl
interior with bench seat (correct Code 920). The interior is really clean
from the carpet all the way up to the headliner and is show worthy.
The engine is the 330 CI V-8 with Ultra High Compression which produces a
factory rated 320 horsepower. Gears are shifted automatically by a Jetaway
transmission with switch pitch torque converter. Both the engine and
transmission in this car are #'s matching. The original limited-slip rear
end is still out back and houses factory 3.08 gears. Other factory options
include power steering, power brakes, and air conditioning making this one
luxurious ride for 1967. The car rides on factory Olds SS-I rims wrapped
with BF Goodrich radial tires. They provide a sporty, yet still
unmistakably classic, look.

1971 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442, ends up Wrecked!
Okay here is a vid of a beautiful Old's Cutlass that would come to my work for repairs. overtime I took vids of it when we did some work for the owner. and then after all his time and money he put into it. it had a very sad ending! I used Marilyn Manson's sweet dreams for a background song. I know in the end its not a sweet dream but rather a nightmare. but I like the song cause it was a sweet car, and that a dream car to me with a tragic end! I'm glad for the family and owner of the car that I heard everyone was okay, other then what had happened. that matters most! though the car may be wrecked, with pictures and videos you can always reflect back to how it was so sweet, but sadly you have to move on, buy another like it, and alot of hard work to bring it back or make the other as nice by using what parts are good still. I wish them the best. I and my coworkers and others will always remember the beautiful car he had and wish them the best on moving on towards a new project just like it.
1969 Olds 442 burnout
A couple of short burnouts in my 442. Nothing crazy just one from idle and a small brake stand to get the tires a little smokier.
1967 Oldsmobile 442 Classic Muscle Car for Sale in MI Vanguard Motor Sales

Priced a 442 lately? Auction results show that these under-appreciated cars are finally getting the respect they deserve. They're still not quite competing on equal ground with big block Chevelles, but I don't think the market is done with the Oldsmobiles yet, either. This 1967 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 most certainly will get a ton of admiring glances at the local cruise night. It packs the potent 442 formula: 400 cubic inches, a 4-speed transmission, and dual Exhaust, making it a blast to drive.
Painted in a near mirror finish black paint, this car looks awesome in person. Oldsmobiles were for adults, and this is a sophisticated color that doesn't scream "muscle car!" the way Carousel Red on a GTO does. The panel gaps are fantastic all around, and the sheetmetal is smooth and straight, just like it needs to be in order to pull off such a color. There are no patches in the wheel wells, or anywhere else on this car. This is definitely a car that you will be proud to own and show one that will reward a Saturday afternoon washing and waxing it with a Saturday evening of gawks and stares as you go cruising. All the stainless and chrome is in great condition, as are the headlight surrounds and grille. All the 442 badges have been reinstalled, a nice styling touch that makes cars like this special.
Under the hood, you'll find the 442 400ci (casting number 390925E), with fresh paint. This motor runs awesome! The engine compartment is has clearly been freshened up recently, and looks great today. The giant 442 air cleaner up top is shiny and beautiful. Up front is a huge radiator. The restoration includes coated headers, HEI distributor, MSD wires, a new alternator, a new gas tank and a recent alignment. There is power steering, and upgraded disc brakes with a fresh power Booster. This car uses a newer Exhaust system and stainless steel mufflers. It runs extremely well, with that distinctive Oldsmobile sound, and will be one of the most bulletproof muscle cars you'll ever own.
The engine is partnered with a Richmond 4-speed. The rest of the undercarriage is solid, with no patches and no rust on the frame or floorboards. The rockers are rust free, you can see the spot welds and the fenders are beautiful. The rear lower control arms are reinforced and the sway bars and upper and lower bushings are all in good shape. There are new spindles as well. Power gets to the ground via a GM 12-bolt 3:73 posi rear end.
Settle into the black bucket seat interior and you're surrounded by one of the most inviting driving environments available in 1967. The black vinyl buckets have a cool, upscale texture to them that matches the door panels. The Hurst shifter comes up out of the floor instead of a console. There is a column mounted tach along with a trip of aftermarket gauges mounted under the dash. An AM/FM/CD radio with remote sits next to that trio of gauges under the dash. Most of the stuff in here is recent; including the carpets and headliner. All of the interior lights work. The wood steering wheel is beautiful.
If you've been watching the market, you know that underrated cars like the 442 and Buick Grand Sports are now coming into their own. Personally, I like them more than their Chevelle cousins; they're every bit as fast, but are more upscale and unique. This one is exactly the kind of car I like best, one you can get in and drive without worries. The mechanicals are solid and it looks spectacular inside and out, perfect for a weekend show or local cruise night. Heck, this is the kind of car I would drive to work every sunny day and not think twice about it, and no matter where you go, it'll get people talking. The pedigree is such that you can buy with confidence knowing that it won't lose value in the coming years, and any money you spend on it between now and then can be considered a smart investment a matching numbers 442 will only go up in value. There have been people having fun with this car for more than 40 years. Now it's your turn. Call us now! 7 days a week 248-974-9513
Lindberg '67 Olds 442 W-30
This was my most enjoyable build ever because I owned the 1:1 car back in the late 80's. My car had exactly the same paint scheme, interior all the way down to the gold carpet. Was it fast? Ooooh yea.
This build was fun because I never had to look at any reference photos. I had worked on the real car so much that I knew what everything looked liked. I did manage to miss painting the inner fender wells flat black but, eh,.
The kit is outstanding. What you see is straight out of the box. Great amount of detail parts especially in the engine and grille area. I would highly recommend finding one of these kits. Fit is perfect.
Yes, quite a bit of time spent on foiling this one. Rain channels are one thing, top of the door trim is like foil hair! Top color is champaign gold. Body is Testors bright white, different from the regular white. This car has been stripped 5 times! Couldn't get the white to look good with a clear coat. Did you know that clear gloss usually has a bit of amber in it? Trick is to go with regular gloss, not high gloss. I can get the # off the can if needed.
Thanks for watching. I've got more. Stay tuned!

Lonny Schoch's Oldsmobile Cutlass 455 Burnout Contest
My father in law, Lonny Schoch, won his 3rd trophy this year at the 6th annual Kroger Klassic Car Show Burnout Contest in Hillsboro, Ohio. Not bad for an Olds Cutlass with a 455. He has less money in this car then many of the other cars that competed, but he "Smoked them all"
