Vehicle Story

This 1968 Oldsmobile 442 is finished in red over a black vinyl interior and is powered by a 455ci V8 paired with a 3-speed automatic transmission.  The car was sold new in California and it has resided on the west coast its entire life.  Equipment includes power steering & brakes, bucket seats, and dual exhaust. Located in Gladstone, Oregon, this 442 is now offered by the selling dealer on a clear Oregon title.

The car was professionally refinished in red with factory style black vertical stripes on the fenders. 442 badging is found on the fenders and grille, while faux vents are featured on the hood. All chrome and brightwork are in good condition, including the front and rear bumpers, window trim, bodyside moldings, and decklid trim. A dual exhaust is equipped with factory style trumpet tips.

Black multi-spoke aftermarket wheels were fitted and are mounted to radial tires at all four corners. Braking is handled by power-assisted discs in the front and drums in the rear

The interior is fitted with black vinyl bucket seats with matching door panels and carpet. A black center console is mounted between the front seats and contains a storage compartment as well as the polished shifter for the automatic transmission with a wood shift ball. The black dashboard features a 442 emblem on the glove box door, and the factory radio has been upgraded to a modern head unit with a removable faceplate. A crack is noted on the dash pad near the gauge cluster, photos are available in the gallery.

The instrumentation sits behind the factory three-spoke steering wheel and includes a 120-mph speedometer and a 7k-rpm tachometer, as well as gauges for fuel level, voltage, and coolant temperature.  An analog clock resides within the tachometer cluster as well.   The five-digit odometer reads 13k miles, though true mileage is unknown. 

The 455ci Rocket V8 is not original to the vehicle and was sourced from a 1970 model.  It is equipped with a four-barrel carburetor and resides in a fully restored engine bay finished in matte black with a gold block and a red air cleaner.  Recent service work includes an oil change as well as replacement of all other fluids.  Power is sent to the rear wheels through a console-shifted 3-speed automatic transmission, which was rebuilt under prior ownership.
