1969 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 Tribute

If you want high-visibility, aximum performance, nd plenty of luxury, ll with a side of open-air fun, hen this 1969 Oldsmobile 442 tribute should grab your attention. It's beautifully done in bright orange, o it definitely ain't subtle, ut the strong-running 350 and long list of Oldsmobile comfort and convenience features make it a great alternative to the usual A-body choices.We'll admit that bright Hugger Orange on an Oldsmobile seems like blasphemy, ut the original code 69 Platinum just didn't measure up to the excitement such a car should generate. So just recently it was torn down, moothed, anded, nd prepped, hen covered in that vivid orange paint, nd wow, s it bright! The two-stage urethane gives it a fantastic shine and the white stripes in traditional 442 patterns were painted on, ot decals, hen buried under the clear coat so it has a very smooth, eamless look. The big, old hood bulges practically lend themselves to the stripe treatment and outlining the wheel arches makes the car look even longer and lower than it is. Correct 442 badges have been placed in all the right spots, o it'll take an expert and a look under the hood to prove it's not a real 442. Other parts like the bumpers, he grilles, nd the cool Oldsmobile rocket side marker lights add up to a car that has a lot of visual appeal, ven up close.The black interior works rather well with the orange bodywork and it's also been beautifully refinished. They used a higher-grade of vinyl than the factory, o it feels luxurious and upscale without losing the OEM feel thanks to keeping original-style patterns. There's a center console that makes this Olds feel sporty from behind the wheel, feeling that's reinforced by the cool 4-spoke steering wheel and round instrument pods ahead of the driver. The gauge markings are big and bright and there's a brand new Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo head unit in the center of the dash, hich powers a set of huge speakers stashed in the trunk. A nice-looking power white convertible top offers a glass rear window and the trunk is neatly finished with what might very well be the original mat.Power comes from a stout 350 cubic inch Oldsmobile V8, hich is a distinct creature from its GM corporate cousins. Wearing Oldsmobile Gold paint and a few dress-up parts, t's a fun, eliable, nd torquey powerplant that suits this ragtop quite well. The engine bay is very clean, ith a lot of new parts, ncluding the intake manifold, -barrel carburetor, nd alternator. It starts with that familiar Oldsmobile starter chatter and settles into a nice idle, urbling through long-tube headers and Flowmaster mufflers. It's linked to a quick-shifting TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and a 10-bolt rear end, o the powertrain is reliable and durable. Other upgrades include recent shocks at all four corners and in back you'll note there are polished exhaust tips poking out through the 442 bumper openings. Ultra-clean floors mean this car isn't from the rust belt and it sits on shiny 5-spoke alloy wheels with 225/70/15 front and 235/70/15 rear performance radials.If you crave attention, his Olds will deliver. But if you simply want a fun ragtop with a comfortable interior and plenty of performance, ell, his is also an excellent choice for that. Either way, ou're getting a lot of car for the money.
