| 1980 Oldsmobile 442 W-30 Cutlass Calais Coupe 1 of 346 in White/Gold; 442 W-30; Highly Optioned I am the third owner of this car and am downsizing to a smaller home/garage. I have experience exporting cars to the United States and abroad and can assist with those arrangements. There is NO DUTY for this car if it returns to the USA. If you pick it up yourself you won’t have to pay any brokerage fees. If you hire someone to do it, the cost is usually around $500 give or take. |

The interior is in “like new” condition and has been extremely well cared for over the years. The original floormats are with the vehicle, but have faded in color over the years. The present owner is using aftermarket floormats to protect the carpet.
It was sold new at the GM/Chevrolet/Olds dealer “Seale & Thomson Ltd” of Courtnay BC, Canada on August 22nd 1980 and currently resides less than two hours from there in Victoria BC. This W-30 442 Cutlass has always lived in Victoria BC and has been incredibly well looked after by its three owners. The gold paint has been redone in the past year as it was starting to dull. The white paint is largely original. The body is incredibly well-preserved and in good condition.
It comes complete with original jack, spare tire, factory documentation, GM Canada build sheet, bill of sale, and lots of historical cut-outs from magazines on the 1980 442 W-30. It has been well-loved and deserves to go to a new caretaker who appreciates this rare Cutty 442 Coupe.

The Oldsmobile 4-4-2 (also known as the 442) is a muscle car that was produced by Oldsmobile. Introduced in 1964 model year as an option package for US-sold F-85 and Cutlass models, it became a model in its own right from 1968 to 1971, then reverted to an option through the mid-1970s. The name was revived in the 1980s on the rear-wheel drive Cutlass Supreme and early 1990s as an option package for the new front-wheel drive Cutlass Calais.
The "4-4-2" name (pronounced "Four-four-two") derives from the original car's four-barrel carburetor, four-speed manual transmission, and dual exhausts. It was originally written "4-4-2" (with badging showing hyphens between the numerals), and remained hyphenated throughout Oldsmobile's use of the designation. Beginning in 1965, the 4-4-2s standard transmission was a 3 speed manual along with optional 2 speed automatic or 4 speed manual, but were still badged as "4-4-2"s. By 1968 badging was shortened to simply "442", but Oldsmobile brochures and internal documents continued to use the "4-4-2" model designation.
The Fourth Generation 4-4-2
The 4-4-2 model moved to the notchback Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais to return to its roots as a performance car as it had a larger 350 V8 engine not available on other Cutlass models. It included W-30 badging on the front fenders above the side marker lights, with less dramatic graphics. Otherwise, the cars shared identical powertrain,(minus the Hurst Shifter), with the '79 H/O. Also available only in gold over white or gold over black paint, a total of 886 were built, 540 in Black, and 346 in White. The MSRP of a Cutlass Calais in 1980 was $6,919.57 (USD). Option W-30 4-4-2 Appearance and Handling Package cost $1,255.12. This package consisted of: Gold Accent Paint Scheme (Y71), Painted Grille Face, Applique Pillar Molding, Aluminum Sport Wheels, "W-30" Decals on Front Fender, Tail Lamp Bezel and Rear Window Molding to Match Body Color, "442" Emblem on Sail Panel and Deck Lid, Engine 5.7 Liter (350 CID) V8, 4-bbl (L34), Sport Console (D55), Rallye Suspension Package (FE2), Tires P205/70R14 Steel Belted Radial Ply Blackwall with Raised White Letters (QFV) and Digital Clock (UE8).
