Camaro Z28 messing with 455 GTO on the street
Late-Model Camaro Z28 messing around with a classic 455 powered GTO... The GTO jams it and then one of the passengers thought they were being tailed by an undercover B4C Camaro holding a radar gun (video camera, lol)... you can see the nervous, unsure look on his face as we roll beside... then the total relief once he recognized an old friend behind the wheel...lol.
This was shot many years ago with an old analog camera, so apologize for the poor quality...

1968 442 1979 Boulder City 2009 Burnout HD
When I posted my original video youtube called "1968 442 & 1973 340 Duster in 1979 Boulder City", I didn't know what ever happened to my 442. I had sold it in the early 1980's and never saw it again. I recently found it and the new owner was nice enough to let me drive it once again. It brought back such great memories. Darren (the new owner) brought it back from the dead (the guy I sold it to nearly destroyed the car) and suped up the big block 400 and it still has the massive torque it had before. The funny part of this story is that this was my first car when I was 16 years old. When Darren got it, it was his first car when he was 16 as well. Enjoy.

1968 Olds 442 Tribute Car With 455 and Muncie 4-Speed Driving
This is a 1968 Olds 442 Replica or Tribute car. It started out as a Cutlass S 2-door hardtop with a 350 Rocket and column shift automatic. I removed all traces of things that would say it was a cutlass. I put on original 68 442 parts such as grill, emblems, glove box door with emblem, trunk rocket emblem and original factory hurst shifter with 442 molded in. I put in a 1969 455 from a Toranado that I rebuilt and added an Edelbrock Torker intake manifold and headers. It is pushing 400 HP. You could not get a 68 or 69 442 with a 455 from GM. GM had a 400 Cubic inch limit on A body cars. Olds got around it by having a third party (Hurst) put 455's in a limited number of cars but they were not made by GM or Olds. Also they were automatics and this one is a 4-speed so you could not order this car ever. It has vintage autometer gauges from the 70's as well as vintage cragar SS mags. 15" x 8.5 on the rear and 14" x 7.5 on the front. I'm thinking of selling it but I'm not sure yet. The engine has around 4 miles on the rebuild. It has a new flowmaster Exhaust system and a muncie M-21 4-speed with factory original shifter boot for non console cars. I have already painted the door jams black in preparation for painting the car all black with a gold stripe along the bottom of the car from front to rear.
My 1968 Olds 442 4-Speed 455 For Sale
I built this 442 as a tribute to the first car I customized when I was 16 years old. I went with the same deep black with a metal flake gold stripe. This car started out as a Cutlass S. It had a rocket 350 with a 2 speed automatic on the column and a 10 bolt rear end. I rebuilt and put in a 1969 Toronado 455 at around 400 horsepower. I also put in a Muncie M21 4-Speed and a 12 bolt rear end. The new dual Exhaust are flowmasters and sounds great. It has new brakes and air shocks.You'd be hard pressed to tell this wasn't an actual 442. The 455 has around 11 miles on it and the car has around 96,000 miles. If interested, drop me an email.
