Here we have a 1972 Oldsmobile 442, matching numbers which is said to have started the restoration in the early 90s, but got no further. The The Rocket 350 engine was rebuilt and seems to come with a lot of parts for the CAR ready to be installed. But is it worth the near $8k asking price?

The body is said to be in good condition with only a few rust holes and paint bubbles (I wonder if you could get away with just patching up the paintwork rather than a complete respray ?). It seems to still have of the 442 package features, the interior being relatively intact, bucket seats and cool center console. the original vinyl top has been removed with a few rust holes poking through. In many ways the car is in pretty good shape and just needs putting back together and refined. But like any restoration project, there’s always going to be surprises along the way.

With the 350ci. engine this Oldsmobile is never going to be a super rarity, but if somebody got stuck into this project and made use of all the supplied parts, one in very good condition could fetch you a high $20k pricetag. With loads of documentation and the car that on the surface and may not need a complete strip down and rebuild, this could suit an Oldsmobile fan or somebody wanting a more straightforward rebuild restoration project.
