Find Of The Day: 1971 Oldsmobile 442

By  |

This ride is one of those original survivors, with everything in place. 1 of 1,096 Oldsmobile 442 convertible auto’s built for this year.

The car was originally bought at Beglinger-Massey Olds in Plymouth, MI by Tom Kent, with the following options – 455 (standard with all 442’s), Hurst dual gate, buckets, console, a/c, tinted windows, RWL tires, SS1 wheels, Tilt wheel, am-fm stereo and 8 track, door edge moldings, hood lock, power seat, power windows, sport mirrors, floor mats, power trunk, rallye pak and guage cluster, bumper guards and light group which includes vanity mirror.

The paintwork is said to be 60% original, with one quarter panel and one door being repainted at some point in the past.

The ad. goes into detail about the rest of its originality from its original trunk mat, untouched engine and transmission.
The car still has its 8 track lights and AM FM stereo.

With this much claimed originality you would obviously need the documentation to back up the claims, which also seems to come with this car. Original window sticker, 2 broadcast sheets, 2 production sheets(because of the options there were a #1 and #2 sheet) protecto-plate and letter from the olds zone director thanking Mr kent for his purchase.

As you would expect for this amount of originality, the car is not cheap, but you are getting a time capsule that will only increase in price as the years go by.

For any Oldsmobile 442 fans out there, this is the one.
