Here we have a 1970 Oldsmobile 442 W-30 Convertible in mighty fine condition. Said to have had a full rotisserie restoration and comes with broadcast sheet and full-back history. It’s nowhere near the cheapest 442 on the block, more at the top of the market, but the car will give an idea of not just current market worth of a 442, but also a look into an example of a muscle car which isn’t always the most popular, but still has top value.

The Oldsmobile 442 started as a option package for the Cutlass, then became its own model in the muscle car years of 1968-1971. The ‘442’ comes from the four-barrel carburetor, four-speed manual transmission and twin exhausts. 1970 was probably the zenith in design for the 442, with the 455ci. V8 being the standard in the 442 model, with updated design and styling. The W30 package added a W25 fibreglass hood, aluminum intake manifold,, upgraded camshaft, cylinder heads, carb. and distributor.


This example has the W30 W machine package, W27 aluminum differential package, ‘tinted windows, power steering, custom sports steering wheel, sports styled outside rear view mirrors, sports console, Rally pack gauges, stereo 8-track tape player, AM/FM stereo, Strato bucket seats, dual intake force air fiberglass hood and red inner fenders.’ ‘Firestone wide oval tires and Super Stock I 14″x7″ wheels.’


This Oldsmobile is clearly a top-notch example of its breed, with one point to mention the quality of photography helps loads with selling the car. Someone has definitely gone to extra lengths to make the car look as appealing as possible, not just providing detailed images but also ones that wouldn’t look out of place a large poster. Basically, for expensive vehicles it pays to produce very good photography. It shows off the vehicle in the best possible way and shows that the seller has gone to extra lengths.


This condition of vehicle with all the extras in one of the more well-known makes and models would cost far more money. The 442 is a fine collectors car, with all the attributes of the classic era of muscle cars.

Definitely a fine example of its breed and like any potential purchase, perform your due diligence, make sure it is what it says it is before you’re happy to buy.
