1972 Oldsmobile 442 Convertible
With its original V8 engine, A/C interior, and terrifically coordinated color combo, this 1972 Oldsmobile 442 tribute convertible is a total package classic finished to a high standard. The Olds Cutlass/442 line from '72 had the ideal sheetmetal that accented the sporty curves with also delivering crisp lines that made these equal parts aggression and elegance. And this convertible really takes that feeling to a whole new level. Freshly painted earlier this year, the Bittersweet Metallic paint has a great clearcoat radiance in the sunlight Ã¢â‚¬â€œ exactly what you want in a sunshine-friendly droptop. And the white striping does a great job of highlighting your favorite sporty features. After all, it not only draws your attention to the dual hood scoops, but also to the flares in the fenders. And the way these coordinate with the fresh white folding top makes this convertible look great even when the roof is in place. There's even more great performance touches with the hood locks, full-width spoiler and iconic color-matched SSIII wheels. Even the chrome is great on the form-fitting bumpers, with the rear ones correctly notched to accept the dual exhaust. For the same reason you like the way the white top looks against the exterior, you're going to love the fresh white seats inside this Olds. After all, a convertible was meant to be open to the world, so it's great they were thoughtful in the restoration to keep a cool combo inside and out. This might have been an intermediate-sized car in the '70s, but today that means plenty of room to share with family and friends across the two wide bench seats. Plus, there's plenty to keep them happy with the upgraded AM/FM stereo w/digital tuner, power convertible top, and cold R134a air conditioning. But a car like this is also a true driver's machine. That's why you have the fold-down armrest to create an individual level of comfort. The upgraded wood and chrome steering wheel goes nicely with the trim on the dash and doors, and you have a clear view of all your gauges. Oldsmobile people know that a Rocket 350 cubic-inch motor is something very special. Olds manufactured their own V8 engines during this era, and they earned a hardier reputation than even some other GM small blocks. This is the numbers-matching motor to the car, and it looks great presented with its correct golden block and correct decals. There's plenty of power from the four-barrel carb topping this V8. It has a distinctive growl as this more sophisticated motor exhales through dual exhaust pipes. Like a true classic Olds, this is a fantastic cruiser thanks features such as power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and a three-speed automatic transmission. The sale comes with plenty of great paperwork, including the original warranty card, owner's manual packet, maintenance records, and restoration photos. So when you can look this good and drive in such nice open-top comfort, you know this is a unique deal that won't stick around long. Call today!!!
