1969 Real Deal Oldsmobile 442
Why This Car Is Special
The Oldsmobile 442 was a muscle car produced by Oldsmobile between the 1964 and 1987 model years that was introduced as an option package for US sold F-85 and Cutlass models and became a model in its own right from 1968 to 1971.
The “4-4-2” name derives from the original car’s four-barrel carburetor, four-speed manual transmission, and dual exhausts.
We have a “real deal” 1969 Oldsmobile 442 here at Skyway Classics verified by the Vin Number and the Trim Tag. The Vin # 344879M206340 means: 4-4-2 4879 2 dr. Deluxe Coupe.
All true 1969 442 cars came with the #344879 vin number and ours has the correct born with 400 cubic inch V8 engine with its four-barrel carburetor, four-speed manual transmission, and dual exhaust and showing only a tick over 26000 miles on the speedometer.
It has the factory correct block, valve covers, and intake all painted in the correct factory gold paint, Quadrajet 4-barrel carburetor, factory cast iron exhaust manifolds, power steering, the red Olds 442 decaled factory air cleaner, power disk brakes, front & rear stabilizer bars, the correct boxed trailing arms, all the correct looking hoses and belts and that engine sits in a very clean, painted and detailed engine compartment.
It is backed by the correct Muncie 4-speed transmission and a factory stamped S5 code H.D. Rear end with a 3:08 posi unit as well and rides on factory chrome 5-spoke Oldsmobile Super Stock wheels and BF Goodrich Radial TA tires with a great exhaust note coming out the back via the dual exhaust system.
The interior in our 442 is very original looking with its period correct twin black front bucket seats with the floor console which houses the Hurst 4-speed shifter and shifter ball, matching rear seat, beautiful factory tilt steering wheel, tinted windshield and Soft Ray tinted glass, headrests, matching door panels and headliner.
The dash has all the correct gauges including Speed Alert, factory tachometer and clock, buttons, instruments and knobs, 442 emblem, correct wood grain trim, original radio in the center, original seat belts and Oldsmobile floor mats, with carpet that is in very good condition, and the truck is original with a factory Oldsmobile logo trunk mat.
Our 442 has a dark blue paint job with the twin scoop factory 442 and a pristine black vinyl top. 1969 4-4-2s were very similar to the 1968’s except the division tooth between the grilles, the trunk lid inlets for the tail lights, and wing windows deleted on Holiday Coupes.
All the 442 badging, trim, glass, bumpers, and the chrome are in great shape as well.
The “real deal” 1969 Oldsmobile 442 we have here at Skyway Classics is a great car to take to car show and cruises and will certainly command attention from not only the 442 purists that see it but from all muscle car lovers as one of the true icons of the performance era made back then.
