Mechanicallyexcellent (recent tune-up and State road inspection) and a tight driver as-is with only 59K miles. Moreover, this Olds 442 is an ideal candidate to make a top show winner with new paint and thorough detailing (Would return a top value in @ $50K+ range?) In my 20 years of being an Oldsmobile, Buick, and Cadillac hobbyist, I have never seen nor owned a 1968 Oldsmobile 442 Convertible- Very rare and special vehicle.
