1969 Oldsmobile 442
It's not just that you're looking at a real-deal code-4487 1969 Oldsmobile 442 hardtop coupe that's priced quite nicely... It's that you're looking at a stellar classic American muscle machine that also has a terrific presentation and it's highly documented.
Glade Green is a terrific factory-correct color to represent the '60s, and it only gets better when that metallic element is helping to give this a great presentation in the sunlight. It helps highlight the iconic curves of the Holiday Hardtop design arguably one of the most attractive coupes of the era. The flared fenders, rounded rear, and long fastback silhouette all give this an instant appeal. The 442 was on a dual mission to be both luxurious and sporty. You see this duo best on the how the dual white stripes emphasize the bulges in the hood, and the black vinyl roof is an instant symbol of '60s premium packaging. But above all, you want this Olds because of its style. They did amazing things in '69, like the trim line that starts at the headlights and highlights all the best curves of the sheet metal. In the rear, we know you love the way the trunk, taillights, and rear bumper are all part of one interwoven design.
Inside is more evidence of a well cared for car. You'll know that the moment you look at the bucket seats. The factory-correct gold has an interesting pattern that will draw attention all on its own. Plus, this tone nicely coordinates with the premium wood paneling on the center console, steering wheel, and dash. The door panels, carpeting, and headliner are all quite nice, and so you'll gladly take up to four family and friends with you for the ride. But even if you're driving solo, this Olds is still a lot of fun. You'll love slipping behind the three-spoke sports steering wheel that gives you a clear view of the sporty factory gauge trio. We know your right hand will instantly gravitate to the floor shifter with the wood-topped ball. As you gaze over the whole presentation, you'll love how it feels like a time warp, right down to the heat/defrost sliders and the factory AM radio with separate 8-track. But your true favorite piece will be when you twist the key and hear this one roar.
Under the hood is exactly what you want to see a big 400 cubic-inch V8. It looks quite nice with the red air topper, wires, and valve covers powerfully glowing from within the dark and clean engine bay. The block is believed to be a dealer replacement item from '71. So it retains an Olds legacy while erasing the first few years of the stoplight grand prix that many muscle cars were subject to. More than just a big displacement, this well maintained power plant fires up easily, and it gives a thunderous growl out of the long tube headers that feed the dual exhaust. Even with this power package, the luxury nature of an Olds always shines through. After all, it still has all-day usability thanks to features such as the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and sway bars front & rear.
The sale comes with all the right paperwork, including the factory build sheet, original warranty card, owner's manual, and maintenance records. A unique muscle machine like this never stays idle for long, so don' miss out. Call now!
