This 1968 Oldsmobile 442 W-30 Tribute has been well-equipped to mirror the "performance-plus" version of the model, carrying period correct big block power under its hood that pairs with its strong classic looks.
This classic Olds makes a very strong impression, putting it in pretty select company as far as curb appeal is concerned. This is one very sharp looking muscle car. The paint presents very well, with a nicely applied, even basecoat combining with a very strong clearcoat to produce an impressive result. Up front, the grille sits precisely aligned between the pair of dual headlights over a table straight, clean bumper, while in back the prominent "442" badging really pops against its yellow background. Fresh weatherstripping surrounds the doors and deck lid to keep the elements out, and every emblem sits securely in place. This is a very well-detailed classic.
The interior has been refurbished in black and retains the factory look this Olds had when it left the factory. Owing to their light usage, both the wide-backed buckets up front and the bench seat in back remain very well padded, with their covers showing no real signs of wear. The black of the seating presents a nice contrast against the black center console and fresh black carpeting running underneath the seating. The shift lever sits within easy reach, beckoning you to climb in and put this vintage muscle car through its paces. Just beyond the stock Oldsmobile steering wheel, the dash area looks great, with wood inserts that appear to have been recently applied and a set of gauges in the instrument cluster that sit behind clear lenses. The trunk area in back is nice and tidy, with an unstained liner on its floor and fresh rubber seal sitting against the deck lid.
The "442" model designation of this Oldsmobile refers to its combination carb, manual transmission and dual exhaust, and it's well represented here, with a 4-barrel sitting on top of a 400 cubic inch V8 and equipped with an Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold and heads. The engine has logged so few miles that it's just coming into its own and sounds great as it sings through its dual exhaust. The 4-speed manual transmission sitting just behind it is known for its power-handling capabilities, so it's right at home in this setting. Power steering makes navigation a breeze, while Four-wheel power brakes that feature discs up front, provide plenty of stopping power as this great looking GM classic cruises on its 15" Oldsmobile wheels.
This 1968 Oldsmobile 442 W-30 Tribute is in top form and would be a fitting centerpiece of any classic car collection. Call today!
