Frame Off Restored 442 Convertible 400 V8 3 Speed Automatic Air Conditioning /// Wrapping rich Aztec Gold aesthetics around sedate Saddle vinyl and 400 cubic inches of spry Rocket motor, this 442 is the stuff of legend! During a professional, body-off restoration that was completed by Harbor Auto Restoration of Rockledge, Florida, this authentic 442 convertible was entirely disassembled and completely stripped of its dull, original pigment. And, after a bit of hard work, the car's clean body presented itself... as an excellent foundation for a slick coat of correct Aztec Gold 2-stage. Hoist the hood and you'll find a correct, 400 cubic inch Rocket V8 that's branded with a familiar 396026G casting number. A super-efficient wedge head design, that hot V8 utilizes a proven 455 cranktrain to turn stout 10.5 to 1 compression into 350 horsepower and 440 lb./ft. of stump-pulling torque. That mill fronts a correct Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed, which is paired to a correct 1969 (69) Oldsmobile 442 400 (OG) assembly tag. That proven transmission sends power to a stout 12-bolt axle, which features a date-correct "R2" assembly stamp. That pumpkin pushes a requisite heavy-duty suspension. Power-assisted stops are provided by a correct combination of calipers and drums. Turns come courtesy of factory power steering. And at the corners, chrome Magnum 500s spin G70-14 Goodyear Polyglas Custom Wide Treads. Inside this impressive classic, you'll find a restoration-fresh interior that's both comfortable and appealing. At the center of the car, stainless-trimmed seats ride stain-free carpet. In front of those thrones, a warp-free dash frames factory air conditioning. A slim console frames a stylish shifter. And in front of the driver, a Sport Steering Wheel laps a factory tilting column. With striking aesthetics and a sorted restoration, this awesome 442 is a fun classic to cruise in virtually any setting. Call, click or visit to add this rocket to your orbit!
