1969 Oldsmobile 442 442

Here is my 1969 Olds 442 (34487) I am selling at NO RESERVE 3 DAY AUCTION (ends Sunday NIGHT) . I surely hate seeing it go because I love this ca, but things have come up and I must sell it along with much of my other cars and parts I will be listing. I've owned many classics and this car is super nice solid car that is very presentable as is but it's not a show car . Being a ASE master certified auto body tec, and restoring a few cars in the past I know what I was looking for in my personal car and that's a good solid original frame and body - this 442 has that ! Original panels front to back and original unaltered body seams !
Please ask any questions - I don't want to be boring and tell stories that are 20 pages long. I'm gonna list some solid points of the car -
original rebuilt 400G block Big valve C head, original Muncie 4 speed with good clutch - no slip or chatter . The 4 speed has reverse lockout as well which makes you put the transmission in reverse before the ignition key can be removed . The rear ended is original and is tight and has original rear sway bar and posi . Boxed control arms as well. The fram, body and floors are 95+% rust free. The interior is 90 % with its original consol, bucket seat, rally dash with gauge, but it has a aftermarket radio . Door panels and headliner original and nice .
Steering and suspension is tigh, smooth and about effortless to drive and handling is amazing for a old classic car due to the 442 suspension and disc front brakes .
Emergency brake work, tachometer is intermittent -
The exterior body and paint and trim would be a area of inprovment needed for show quality but is in decent driver shape . The car has some ding, scrape, and chips . Paint looks like a redo maybe back in the 1980s . Still looks decen, but I would redo it eventually .
Vinyl top is original and has no bubbling or blistering and car is real nice around the windows with no rust .. The wheels are vintage cragars with vintage bias ply tires ( old school ) that's the way I bought it . Since then I put 50 miles on the car driving it to the park a couple time, and ran, drove and handled nicely and then I noticed the power steering hose leak and parked it indoors . I'm not going to register it for this summer so what's the point of me even keeping this 442 - let someone else enjoy it as-is and maybe take it up to the next level eventually . Car isn’t torquey, quic, and super fun to drive . Sounds nice as well
I have a open title /ref and I will assist in loading the car for shipping reasons . This is a as-is sale because anything that's almost 50 years old can have problems or issues . There are no refunds of any kind . We will accept cas, or wire transfe, or certified check . Good luc, and feel free to ask any questions or check out other items . We are selling all cars and related items (parts, tool, trailer, etc .) FRAME and under side floors like new .

- Last week I took the car for a test ride - first time this year . Ran perfect and had excellent oil pressur, I went over the top of some very very crappy bumpy rail road tracks and looked down at my tach and oil pressure gauge on the ralley pack- The oil pressure went right down to nothing after the rail road tracks . Anyways I brought it home on a trailer and just like I suspected the oil pump pickup tube was laying in the bottom of the oil pan . I pulled 1 rod bearing - perfect shap, I pulled 1 main bearing and it has a light scratch or score. It’s gonna need the crank polished and re bearinged . And a new oil pump installed . I’m just gonna sell it as is to someone with a bit more time on there hands . Perfect opportunity for someone . You won’t find a more solid original 442 in this price range . Bring a trailer or I’ll helpLoad it for shipping reasons . NO RESERVE 3 day Auction ends sunday night- be sure to check out all my ebay items as well!$30-$35,000 car with some work, but not far off as it stands . NO RESERVE
Last picture shows one of the bearings . Polish crank and rebearing with new oil pump. Rest of the engine is brand spankin new as you can see under the valve cover .
