1966 Oldsmobile 442 Street/Strip
Here's a 1966 Oldsmobile Cutlass with a big V8 that's just barely tame enough to have a license plate hung on the rear. Cars that look this good and are custom built for serious performance are rarely this affordable. So dig in to all the details, but just know you're not the only one admiring this right now.
The first generation of the Cutlass never looked better than in '69. The wraparound chrome bumpers that cleanly integrate into the extra wide front and rear panels; the sporty silhouette of the hardtop design; the flying buttress rear pillars; and sheetmetal that has a sporty kick-up integrated into the rear fender. This is '60s styling at its best, and you see it perfectly in a coupe treated correct where the doors still shut with authority. But there's much more going on there than an iconic classic design. The matte black paint instantly announces a more sinister machine. And the gloss black on the hood draws attention to the huge power bulge. Plus, a matching gloss black trunk and 15-inch American Racing wheels add to both the style and enhanced performance attitude.
When you open the door, you're greeted by custom two-tone seating with a premium diamond pattern insert. This setup is repeated on the door panels for a great custom appearance. But while this one is luxurious like a good Olds should be, you also instantly know the coupe is on a pure performance mission. After all, the roll cage, fire extinguisher, auxiliary gauge trio, and B&M shifter for the stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission are the perfect accessories to be dragstrip ready. And as you grab the wood and chrome sports steering wheel, it gives you a clear view at the huge AutoMeter SportComp tach with shift light. That's a nice indicator that this is one serious coupe.
Under the hood, you instantly recognize the signs of pure performance. The big 455 cubic-inch V8 has all the right go-fast goodies, including a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Torker 455 intake, MSD ignition, and Hooker long tube headers. Plus, it has been fortified with the right supporting components, like an electric fuel pump, aluminum radiator, and an electric fan. Not only does this have a ferocious growl out of the dual exhaust, but also when you really want them to hear you coming, there are cutouts so people can fear you by the sound alone. A good street & strip machine also needs a good suspension, that's why you have a thick sway bar up front, upgraded rear, power steering, and power brakes with disc up front.
An intimating appearance and ferociously fast coupe meets a terrific price. It's time to grab this speedy Cutlass before someone else beats you to it. Call today!!!
