My 1968 Olds 442, 425 HP 455, 4-Speed
This is the last video I shot of my 1968 Olds 442 That I built. I put in a
425 HP 455 and a Muncie 4-Speed. Man I love the sound of that car. You can
see the other videos of it as I was building it.

If you're looking for a documented, investment grade classic that'll bring
home big trophies, and net an even bigger return, this 986-point 442 is
your roundtrip rocket ride to the moon!
Not long ago, this Oldsmobile underwent a professional, frame-off
restoration in which none of its bolts were left unturned, and all of its
panels were massaged to better-than-factory condition. Fit and finish is
light years ahead of most 60s classics, with even gaps all around. A
correct coat of GM code 52 Crimson basecoat was sealed in modern clear and
detailed with bright white stripes for all to admire. And today, six
figures into the future, this 442 is a razor-sharp muscle car that
intimidates like a cruise missile and shines like the family's best silver.
Hoist the car's mirrored hood and you'll find an original, 400 cubic inch
Rocket V8 which is branded with a correct, 442-specific 396026G casting
number and matching 39M287334 partial VIN. Since Rocket blocks are devoid
of date codes, we can use that partial VIN, which translates as a 1969 (9)
Oldsmobile (3) engine that was installed in car 287334 in Lansing, Michigan
(M), to authenticate this convertible's status as a real deal,
numbers-matching 442. Professionally rebuilt and fully detailed, the hot V8
is a super-efficient wedge head design that utilizes a standard stroke and
undersquare bore to create stout 10.5 to 1 compression, 325 horsepower and 440 lb./ft.
of stump-pulling torque. Stomp the throttle and a big Rochester Quadrajet
mixes juice from new stainless fuel lines with wind that's supplied by a
Fire Red, single-snorkel air cleaner. At the sides of that carburetor, "K"
branded heads hang above restored, cast iron Exhaust manifolds that make quick work of spent
gases. And at the back of those heads, a correct points distributor shoots
fire through fresh 7mm plug wires.
Behind that 400 cubic inch V8 lives a 400 of another sort: a rugged turbo-Hydramatic 3-speed that's branded with a
correct 1969 (69) 442 (OG) assembly tag. That proven transmission sends
power to a stout, 12-bolt rear end that's equipped with tall,
pavement-melting gears. That driveline hangs in a mandatory heavy duty
suspension, which includes better shocks, thicker coil springs, reinforced
control arms and a standard rear sway bar. And at the corners of the car,
Crimson, Styled Steel wheels spin 225/70R14 BF Goodrich Radial T/As around
spotless trim rings and Oldsmobile-branded center caps.
Inside this pristine drop-top, you'll find a new White interior that's both
comfortable and appealing. At the center of the car, stainless-trimmed
seats ride on fresh red carpet that's protected by thick rubber floor mats.
In front of those seats, a warp-free dash hangs familiar 442 trim between
rebuilt Rallye gauges, which include a cool tic-toc tachometer and a
modern, direct-fit radio. And in front of the driver, a satin-spoked
steering wheel laps a striking Oldsmobile horn button.

fan who wants something a little different, this rare A-Body is the perfect

132198 / 1957 Oldsmobile: Golden Rocket 88
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/blcwa26
Don't be fooled by the large-by-huge chrome wheels it's wearing today, this
particular '57 Golden Rocket 88 is an authentic J2 car, and is extensively
and thoroughly restored to original condition from top to bottom. Our
documents suggest that this is one of only four Golden Rocket 88 2-door
sedans in existence with the J2 engine.
The two-tone bodywork on this car is spectacularly done and looks
especially striking in black and white with a red stripe in the chrome trim
that separates the two halves. Bodywork is beautiful, with straight panels
and excellent fit throughout, evidenced by the miles-deep reflections in
The real story on this Olds is the J2 371 cubic inch engine under the hood.
Fully rebuilt during the restoration, it runs like new and the passing of
years has proven that these are some extremely durable engines. Detailing
is first-rate too, from the 'Oldsmobile J2 Rocket" decals on the valve
covers, to the correct 2-barrel carburetors, to the original power steering
system that's fully functional. You'll note that this engine sports a trio
of shorty air cleaners on the carbs, but the original dual oil-bath air
cleaner is also included.
The engine is backed by a 3-speed Hydramatic transmission, and drives the
original rear end. Brakes were rebuilt to stock specifications, as was the
suspension, although the car was given a subtle, aggressive look by
tweaking the spring height slightly. The car wears a set of chrome Billet
Specialties wheels, but the original 15-inch steel wheels and plain hubcaps
From the tri-tone seats with patented GM comfort weave cushions, to the
positively breathtaking instrument cluster, this interior is new. The
original radio has been upgraded to include an iPod interface. The trunk is
sporting a custom carpet, but an original trunk mat is included.
This Olds is fast, comfortable, luxurious, and about 2/3 the cost of a
comparable Chevy. There are no irreversible modifications, and this car
could be put back to 100% stock condition in an afternoon. Act fast and
