1970 OLDSMOBILE 442 W-30
This 1970 Olds 442 W-30 is original and has been well preserved since day one. By reading the description and viewing the pictures there is NO WAY denying that this is one rare car that has maintained its originality.
Other tell tale signs of authenticity are the following:
Original Fiberglass hood with metal frame and original metal mesh.
Original (never removed from vehicle) are the red fiberglass inner fender wells and fenders.
Motor/Trans has never been removed from the vehicle
Viewing the pictures you'll see all original parts underneath the car including starter, radiator, fuel pump, hosing, and original leather brackets to dampen vibration on front fenders.
Viewing engine bay from top you'll see original flapping around radiator, original W-30 compartment sticker, factory marketings on firewall, trim tag, wire hold downs and all original paint and even original factory stamped exhaust manifolds.
Even a good portion of the original exhaust system is still intact and on the car.
The Exterior:
As you can see from the pictures, the car presents beautiful. About 75% is original and there is evidence of re painting on the right fender, the hood and top of the left fender. It is apparent that the repaint was done in the late 70's or early 80's because it was redone in lacquer and is showing signs of aging. Any maintained paint work was done with parts never being removed. As for the rest of the body that paint is original with some minor touch ups over the body. The car was maintained, the chips were touched up with a brush and the whole car shows as an original lacquer paint job should from a car this era and age. The body is straight and solid and wears all its original metal. Underneath the car is all original and solid. All the glass is original, date coded and correct. The chrome bumpers are original and are still brilliant in its luster. The brightwork is all intact and in excellent original condition. The wing appears to have been added but the paint shows its age. Its hard for us to tell if it was dealer installed or installed very early in its life. Also, the rear two wheels have been upgraded with a larger size and larger tires, however, the two rear original wheels come with the purchase. The front two wheels are on the car and original.
The Interior:
The interior is all original with the exception of the carpet and the rear speaker tray. The original speaker tray comes with the purchase. Everything else is original right down to the upholstery, headliner, door panels and dash and all are in excellent condition. Everything works inside including the glove box and console lights.
It has the original AM radio that still works and all dash lights and signals work perfectly.
The Drive Train:
The drivetrain is all original and numbers matching. It has been maintained for its 88k miles and has never been rebuilt, redone, restored or out of the car. It runs flawlessly. The transmission is as strong as the day it was new. There is no way to replicate a car and the way that it drives when its original. I was lucky to drive this car and it's literally like going back in time and driving a 5 year old car. There are no rattles, no squeaks, no vibrations.....nothing. And when you step on the gas you'll push this car sideways. If you let it, it'll roast the rear tires right off the car. It's amazing how well this car has been maintained and preserved. You can't replicate originality. When you restore a car you lose the originality and the way the car was intended to drive. This car is roadworthy and I wouldn't hesitate driving this car anywhere.
