1968 Oldsmobile 442
This a no reserve auction on my 1968 Olds 442 convertible. This is an original 442 convertible, not a clone, that wasoriginally a4 speed car that at some point in it's life was converted to a TH350 automatic transmissionwith an automatic console from an earlier 442. Itruns and drives fantasticand 1 of only about 1500 built that year. The 400 ci engine isfrom a 1965 442and has been rebuilt and a rebuilt original numbers correct carburetorinstalled.The OEMstyle blackaluminum radiator is new. The front suspension is rebuiltand power disc brakes were added.The Goodrich tires and Hurst aluminum wheelsare also new with very little miles on them. I still have the original wheels as well if you want them. The interior is very nice with newly redone seats, door panels, carpet, quarter trim, etc. I also have agood replacementradio bezel for the broken one in the car. The drivers floor board hasa screwed inpatch and small area of rustis showing under the 20+ year old paint on lower fender, otherwise itis a very solid and rust free. Pics of the floor boards from when I replaced the carpet are included in the ad as well as pics from under the car. The power convertible top works well but thetop does have a rip in it.I hardly ever drive the car with the topup so I never took time to address it. The car is very dusty in the pictures from sitting in my shop but gets a LOT of thumbs ups.The previous owner owned it for 40 years before me and it mostly sat in his garagewhere it gotthe paint chips, scratches, etc while being stored. The car is not perfect but with paint and a top would be a VERY nice car. I checked the body with apaint meterandthere appears to be little or no body work. The left tail light lens is brokenbutare available new. I've tried to describe the car as accurately as possible andhope I didn'tmiss anything but Iencourage you to comeinspect and driveit yourself. I didn't intend to sell herbut another vehicle has caught my eye (and yes 'squirrel' very much applies when it comes to me and cars) so it's timego. Please don't hesitate to ask questions and I encourage anyone to come have a look and go for a drive if interested in buying it. I will gladly assist by driving the car locally to a shipper arranged by you but highly encourage local pickup.
A video of the engine running can be found here:
