Details by owner
The information on this car was provided to me by the previous owner who owned it for several years, and also by having it checked out by a local auto restoration shop after I purchased it earlier this year.

1970 Oldsmobile 442. VIN is 344870Z125xxx.
The "44" in the VIN verifies this is a REAL 442, with the Factory correct 455-V8 (365-hp).
The engine casting # reads 396021 F. The heads # reads 403686, the carburetor # reads 7040253, Rochester Q-jet.

The other Factory options are as follows,

M-21 close ratio 4-speed transmission with Hurst shifter, Bucket seats, Power steering, Power disc brakes (very rare on 4-speed cars), Sport steering wheel, Gauges, Tic-Toc-Tachometer, Sonomatic AM radio, Remote control drivers door mirror, Map light in rear-view mirror, 15-inch Rally wheels, 12-bolt Posi-traction rear axle with the 3.42 gear ratio. The odometer shows about 74,800 which according to the previous owner is the correct mileage.

The car was originally Gold with a black vinyl top. One of the previous owners paid thousands of dollars to have it taken down to bare metal & repainted the reddish/orange color it is now, to resemble a 442 shown in one of the original ads for them from 1970 (see picture). He obviously chose to not have a vinyl top put back on, but the new owner can do so if they want. Aside from the paint color change & vinyl top, the rest of the car seems to be all original, and is a very solid, rust free car that needless to say get's attention & complements when ever people see it! The headliner is beginning to sag a little, but otherwise the rest of the interior still looks nice & clean. The car is powerful & runs strong like a good big block should, and is very fun to drive!

It's not perfect, not a show car, but it is pretty much in excellent overall condition. The current NADA values (when you add on for the 365-hp motor & 4-speed transmission) are as follows,, LOW is $25,500,, AVERAGE is $37,750,, HIGH is $61,000. As described the car is much better than "Average", but does lose some value with the non-original paint color (even though it's a beautiful car). It's being offered on a first come, first serve basis. I'll sell to the first one who shows up in person for $25,000 Firm. In order to buy my car,, you need to come SEE IT in person & talk with me in person.
