This 1969 Oldsmobile 442 W30 is one of 47 ever built, and there is a good reason for it. The reason why is this car unique, it’s because is Canadian car. This Olds is the only one known Canadian ordered 442 in beautiful Code-10 black paint with red stripes and gorgeous red interior.
The 442 originally started with production back in 1964 as a version of the Cutlass model, featuring a four barrel carburetor, four speed transmission and dual exhaust. That’s where it get the name ‘442’. By 1968 the 442 was actually elevated into its own model and it’s technically no longer a Cutlass.
Under the hood of this 1969 Oldsmobile 442 there is a W-30 package. The 400 cubic-inch big-block Force Air Rocket Oldsmobile V8 engine, with a 4bbl carb on top, is creating 360 horsepower and 440 pound feet of torque. The engine is attached by 4-speed manual transmission that spins 3:91.1 rear-end. This combination gives a very fast vehicle, maybe faster than some people might think.
