1966 Olds 442 W30 MuscleCar Nationals Race & Show Fun

Great memories racing and showing my 1966 Olds 442 Tri-Carb W30 with friends at the MuscleCar Nationals in Sacramento. I restored it to showroom condition in the 1980's, including balancing and blueprinting the original Olds 400 engine and drivetrain to factory specs as documented in the 2-part article I wrote for Musclecar Review magazine. It's all 442 including the original Olds 400 "E" block, heads, carbs, intake/carbs, etc, and raced on DOT legal street tires through mufflers and full Exhaust per Musclecar Nationals factory stock rules. I raced my first 442 in stock eliminator during the 1960's, and had a ball with my friends showing and racing this one at various events around the country. I hope you enjoyed sharing this trip down musclecar memory lane with me. If you need quality restoration parts or would like a professional video or slideshow of your car, visit our SuperCar Specialty website at http://www.supercarspecialty.com. This video is dedicated to my good friend John Seguin, who died shortly after he videotaped some of the racing scenes in this video for me. Here's to John and our other friends who share our passion for cars: cars and shows may come and go, including the MuscleCar Nationals, but our memories make sure that "Good Friends are Forever".

1937 Oldsmobile
Follow the Leader is the sales introduction film prepared for dealers to let them know all of sales advantages to be found in a 1937 Oldsmobile. In 1937, Oldsmobile was a pioneer in introducing a four-speed semi-automatic transmission called the "Automatic Safety Transmission", although this accessory was actually built by Buick, which would offer it in its own cars in 1938. This transmission featured a conventional clutch pedal, which the driver pressed before selecting either "low" or "high" range. In "low," the car shifted between first and second gears. In "high," the car shifted between first, third and fourth gears. S134





1967 Oldsmobile 442 Classic Muscle Car for Sale in MI Vanguard Motor Sales
http://www.ClassicCarBuyingSecrets.com Click now for an instant download on "How to Avoid the 7 Deadliest Mistakes of Buying a Classic Car Online"! 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 www.vanguardmotorsales.com
