1968 Oldsmobile 442 Project W30

By  | 


VIN: 344878M238175
Engine: 400 V8
Transmission: 4 speed Muncie manual
Color: Spanish Red
Mileage: 60,000
Price: $7,700.00


This once Spanish Red 1968 Oldsmobile 442 may look a bit rough, but is surprisingly intact which would make what looks on the surface a straightforward restoration. It doesn’t have its original engine and now looks black rather than it’s original red, however there’s definitely potential here.

This Oldsmobile was originally R-R Spanish red, which has almost all disappeared over the years. The interior looks in reasonable shape especially since it is white and on first looks seems to need more of a overhaul and a complete replacement.

The engine and transmission are unfortunately not in the car, but at least it is a 400 V8, the original having long since gone. The ad. says there are a few elements missing from the engine such as the intake, carburettor and distributor. These engines originally produced 350 HP and 440 lb-ft of torque, a very reasonable amount for the times and very competitive with the rest of the muscle car market. Oldsmobiles from this era were every bit as good as their competitors and one in top-notch condition is a fine sight to behold.

Considering the condition of the car, intact interior and supplied engine, the asking price seems quite reasonable. Being an original W30 it would be great to see this example brought back to its original condition and here it rumble once again.
