1976 Oldsmobile 442 Cutlass

Ready for the local cruise night! Show up in this cool and rare 1976 Oldsmobile 442 "W29" hardtop coupe in beautiful Lime Metallic with the White stripe package and you are bound to get attention! What really makes this 1976 Oldsmobile 442 stand apart from others is the factory drive-train option! This 442 was ordered with the optional Oldsmobile 260 V8 engine and the "rare" Borg Warner 5 Speed manual transmission which was only available in Cutlass & 442 Models for 1976-1977 and in very limited numbers! This is a low production 442 in a stunning original color combination and it's powered by the most unusual if not the rarest drive-train combination offered in 1976! Only 9,576 W29/442's were built in 1976!
This 442 is said to have only 44,000 original miles and the title shows the 44,000 actual miles but I have no other documentation to prove the actual mileage on the car.The engine compartment is nice and clean.The 260 V8 engine starts easily and runs very well with no unusual noises,leaks and no smoke.The engine is completely stock with the exception of a pair of Hooker Headers and dual exhaust with catalytic converters and chrome tips installed by a previous owner.The headers and dual exhaust give the engine a nice deep rumble.The 5 speed manual transmission shifts easily with no unusual noises, no grinding, no popping out of gear.The clutch feels good also.It really drives nice down the freeway also!The wheels are the original Oldsmobile 15x7" Rally Wheels or the SSIII style wheels in original Lime Metallic with all of the original stainless inserts,trim rings and center caps.The tires are newer BF Goodrich Radial T/A's (P225/70R-15).All the exterior lights work correctly.The power steering and power disc and parking brake work nicely also.
The body on this 442 is in pretty nice shape overall.The car is very straight and quite solid.The Lime Metallic paint has a great shine and there is plenty of metallic in the paint which gives it an absolutely awesome look in natural sunlight.It has been hand waxed and holds a great smooth shine.It does have some typical minor nicks,chips and touchups. All the doors, hood and trunk have nice gaps and close properly.The glass is clean and clear.The chrome looks good and bumpers are straight.The frame,trunk and floors are solid and rustfree.All the weatherstripping is soft.The Bright White interior is in good shape overall for its age.The front bucket seats swivel nicely and the white vinyl looks very good.It is equipped with AM-FM stereo with windshield antenna and electric rear defroster.The carpet appears to be newer and the headliner,door panels and sunvisors are in good shape.The windshield wipers,courtesy & dome lights and key buzzer all work!The original green consolette is in great shape. The original 5 speed shifter is in good operating condition with it's original 5 speed shift knob with the shift pattern still legible.The original owners manual and build sheet are included also. Perfect cruise night car and just a blast to drive!
