If you're in the market for a great alternative to GM's traditional stars,
there are few cooler cars than this Saturn Gold Oldsmobile!
Assembled in Lansing, Michigan during the second week of February, 1971,
this spectacular Oldsmobile is one of only 810 442 W-30 hardtops produced
for the 1971 model year. Impeccably maintained throughout its entire life,
the car has never undergone a complete, frame-off restoration, and has
managed to maintain a great presentation with the help of as-needed
refurbishing. Today, 42 years after rolling out of the showroom, it's one
head turning GM muscle car that intimidates like a cruise missile and
shines like the family's best gold. And yes, that IS a correct combination
of GM code 53 Saturn Gold and GM code 19 Ebony Black paint you're currently
Twist this awesome 442's hood locks and you'll find a correct 455 cubic
inch Rocket V8 that's branded with a familiar 396021F casting number.
Unfortunately, this block's partial VIN was completely milled off during a
rebuild, so we can't authenticate its status as a numbers matching piece.
But we can definitely tell you the big engine, which creates 350 horsepower in factory guise,
is mechanically sound and ready to hit the road. Stomp the throttle and a
Rochester Quadrajet carburetor mixes juice from leak-free fuel lines with
wind from a correct low-restriction air cleaner, and shoves it into a
correct aluminum intake. Behind that intake, a traditional points
distributor feeds fire through fresh AC Delco Packard TV R Suppression
wires that are loomed around correct "H" branded heads and clean blue valve
covers. And below those valve covers, correct cast iron Exhaust manifolds shoot charred dinosaurs into
big, true dual pipes.
Standard fare for the 442 trim was a factory heavy duty suspension which is
augmented with beefy front control arms, better front shocks, thicker coil
springs, boxed rear control arms, a standard rear sway bar and, in this
car's case, rear air shocks. Behind the wicked 455, the car's original
Muncie M22 4-speed, which wears a correct 3925661 casting number, a
matching partial VIN and a Muncie (P) M22 (C) assembled on December (T)
17th (17) of 1970 (1) build stamp, sends power to stout 10 bolt rear end
that's equipped with easy living gears. And at the corners of the car,
chrome Magnum 500s spin fresh F70-14 Goodyear Polyglas GTs around rocket
branded center caps.
Inside this old school Olds, you'll find a high quality Sienna interior
that appears to be mostly untouched original equipment. At the center of
the car, rebuilt bucket and bench seats ride on clean brown carpet that's
protected by color-keyed mats. In front of those seats, a warp-free dash
hangs familiar 442 wood around correct Rally gauges and an original AM/FM
stereo. And in front of the driver, a custom sport steering wheel is
centered on a striking rocket horn button.
Tired of the same old Chevelles and GTOs you can find anywhere, anytime?

This is a video my buddy and I made about 10 years ago. It actually didn't
turn out too bad. The car had a decent little 403 in it back then.
