This all original 1970 Oldsmobile 442 W30 is a prime candidate for a full restoration and at a current bid of under $4381, a fine specimen of a 1970s muscle car.


One of the main benefits of this find is that the car is said to run and drive with only 60,980 miles on the clock, which means it can be driven and possibly worked on at the same time.
However, giving this a full rotisserie restoration will be a great idea as this is a prime candidate for such a process.

The exterior looks like it’s had its surface rust addressed in the past and all the panels seem to look straight and solid.
There is evidence of rust on the rear quarters, but on the upside there is a NOS repainted hood, which shows at least a start of a restoration job in the past.
The chrome work looks in reasonable shape, but will need touching up in areas.

The 455 CID V8 engine is not the original, but it’s period correct and has 1972 W30 cylinder heads. It’s driveable but clearly needs a good clean, service and repaint to get it back in fully workable order.
The rest of the engine bay looks in good condition with no signs of rust and still has the original paint.

The interior of the car looks reasonable with the burr dash still intact, with only slight whirring around the chrome gauges.
The driver’s seat has a rip, but apart from that the interior almost looks like it just needs a good clean up to get back in shape.

Overall, this Oldsmobile has plenty of potential and although the engine is not numbers matching, the price is at a good enough point to buy this as a great restoration project.
