1966 Oldsmobile 442

RARE 1966 Oldsmobile 442 W-30 number 34 of 54 produced. Track-pack engine, ebony black exterior and tow-tone blue cloth bench seat interior w/color-keyed vinyl floor covering, four speed, radio delete option, dogdish hubcaps, redline tires, documented by Olds Authority Curt Anderson. In 1966 Oldsmobile built 54 cars known as W-30's to be certified by NHRA to run in Stock Classes at NHRA sanctioned events. The NHRA allowed the cars but required that Oldsmobile provide them with the serial numbers and names of the purchasers of each car to be sure the requirement of 50 cars were sold and delivered in order to comply with NHRA Rules. The majority of the cars were sold to known drag racers. In June of 66 Olds built the 54 cars in the Lansing Michigan plant. Most were stripped models with no radios, some without heaters and all had the 466 gear rear end, Made for one thing - GO FAST in a straight line for 1/4 mile. They were sucessful as they won the C Stock Class in 66 and 67 over Chevrolet, Pontiac, Ford and Mopar. The cars had the special Shroud over 3 two barrel carburetors with ram air hoses routed through the bumper. Close ratio 4 speed in all cars with the battery located relocated to the trunk. Each car was numbered and this is certified as car #34. It is an F-85 442. Many were made with cloth interior and with plain and color combos to discourage the showroom buyers from wanting to purchase the car. Hence Blue interior with Black Body. This car is a piece of Oldsmobile History as there are only 14 of these cars in existence today. Because of their rarity, they are considered the Holy Grail for Olds Collectors. It has been restored to correct specifications and has been awarded First Place in it's Class at the Oldsmobile Nationals in 2004. This is your chance to own a piece of Oldsmobile history. I have an album of photos of the original frame-off restoration. Serious buyers only. Call Mike with any questions at 863-618-6179. Photo gallery below:
