Lot 96 1971 OLDSMOBILE 442 (W30) | If you are in the market for a great alternative to GM’s traditional stars, there are few cooler cars than this Saturn Gold Oldsmobile! Assembled in Lansing, Michigan during the second week of February, 1971, this spectacular Oldsmobile is one of only (810) 442 W-30 hardtops produced for the 1971 year model. 50 years after rolling out of the showroom, it is one head turning muscle car that intimidates like a cruise missile and shines like a new penny. Unfortunately, the block’s partial VIN was completely milled off during a rebuild, so we can’t authenticate its status as a numbers matching piece. We can tell you this 350 HP Engine is road sound and ready for an adventure. Standard fare for the 442 trim was a factory heavy duty suspension which is augmented with beefy front control arms, better front shocks, thicker coil springs, boxed rear control arms, a standard rear sway bar, and in this car’s case, rear air shocks. Behind the wicked 455, the car’s original Muncie M22 4-Speed, which wears a correct 6925661 casting number, a matching partial VIN and a Muncie (P) M22 © assembled on December (T) 17th, (17) of 1970 (1) build stamp, sends power to stout 10 bolt rear end that’s equipped with easy living gears. Frame Off Restoration, 455 CID, Muncie M22 Manual Transmission, Hurst Shifter, Saturn Gold and Black Strip Exterior, Saddle Leather Interior, Showing 78,515 Miles, VIN# 344871M151712
