For those of us that can remember the sixties, we remember the automobile manufacturers being in a fierce battle to see who could
build the most widely accepted factory hot rod. Oldsmoble, the oldest American manufacturer of automobiles, produced the first 442
as their entry into the performance market in 1964. Back then, just as now, few people knew what the 442 stood for and just knew it was a fast car.
Do you want to guess before I tell you? The 442 stood for four-barrel carburetor, four on the floor and dual exhaust, all in one package.
Tony is a long time Oldsmobile fan and has been a member of the Oldsmobile of America organization for over twenty years. He is also a member of the
“Sunset Rockets” Oldsmobile club.
Tony has owned his 1967 Oldsmobile 442 convertible for ten years. He says the end of Oldsmobile production, after over one hundred years,
has made Oldsmobiles more collectable, and he is thankful to have a very desirable, heavy optioned classic.
