Of all the "A-Body" intermediate muscle cars produced by GM in the 1960s and early 1970s, the Oldsmobile 442 was best known for its winning combination of all-around performance and sophistication, in addition to blistering acceleration. From relatively humble beginnings in 1964 as a civilianized version of Oldsmobile's new "Police Apprehender Pursuit" package, the 442 was relentlessly developed into what Hot Rod magazine declared "the thinking man's GTO" in  a 1970 road-test report.
 
For 1970, Oldsmobile's engineers took full advantage of the removal of GM's edict prohibiting its intermediate models from using engines larger than 400 cubic inches. Accordingly, the 1970 edition of the 442 featured a 365-horsepower, 455 CI V-8 as standard equipment. With its 10.5:1 compression ratio, stout internals, high-flow Rochester carburetor and dual exhaust, the 455 belted out an incredible 500 pounds-feet of pavement-melting torque at just 3,200 rpm. While easily capable of 14-second quarter-mile times in stock trim, the 442 was quite docile in everyday driving and with its single carburetor and hydraulic valvetrain, surprisingly easy to maintain. Promoting its storming 442, Oldsmobile advertising featured the maniacal "Dr. Oldsmobile" and his obedient henchmen, adding a fun and cheeky twist to muscle car marketing in 1970.
 
Built at the Framingham, Massachusetts assembly plant, this 1970 Oldsmobile 442 Hardtop was restored to exceptionally high standards by the noted Oldsmobile marque experts at Thorton Muscle Cars. The matching numbers 455 CI Oldsmobile V-8 engine, factory-rated at 365 HP and 500 lb.-ft of torque, is paired with the original Turbo-Hydramatic 400 automatic transmission. Highly sought-after features include the legendary W25 outside air induction system with fiberglass hood, Pearl White upholstery and bucket seats, factory air conditioning, a center console, Hurst Dual/Gate shifter, and Anti-Spin limited slip differential. Amenities include a Sport steering wheel, original 8-Ttrack stereo, original Rally Pack gauges with tachometer, and dual Sport mirrors. The trunk features a correct plaid floor mat, mounted spare, and factory-type instructional decals. Super Stock II wheels mount new and correct Goodyear Polyglas G70-14 tires.
 
Looking fabulous and correct, with awesome all-around performance, this 1970 Oldsmobile 442 is quite likely one of the finest in existence. Ready to show and enjoy, it is a collector-grade example throughout. Contact us to experience it first-hand, obtain full details and get ready to make it yours today!
