1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442

1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442

The word Cutlass is defined as a short curvy one-edged sword that was used by sailors. The Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme was the bestselling car in Olds history. With its clean lines and numerous model offerings, it is clear to see why. The "4-4-2" name (pronounced "Four-four-two") derives from the original car's four-barrel carburetor, four-speed manual transmission, and dual exhausts. Some maintain that the '2' indicated positive traction rear differential. It was originally written "4-4-2"

For consignment, a 1970 442 that very well may be optioned with the W30 package. This Oldsmobile 442 is equipped with many of the giveaways to be a W30 car. A W25 fiberglass hood which provides outside air induction through functional air scoops, a low-restriction air cleaner, a Winters foundry aluminum intake manifold as well as the correct carburetor, cylinder heads and rear spoiler.

Exterior
Straight steel side panels with coke bottle form, and fiberglass dual scooped hood with consistent gaps are all bathed in Burnished Gold Metallic paint. Up front a split grille is flanked by dual headlights on either side and a large chrome bumper below. All is nice and tight and in good alignment with no rust or fading on chrome. Black satin accenting paint is seen on the hood as well as a painted in belt line spear which runs the gamut of the sides of this car. The roofline slowly slopes gracefully to the trunk deck, where we see a rear spoiler attached. As the trunk rolls downward it greets a shiny rear bumper with inset taillights. Dual exhaust pipes peek out from underneath this bumper. On all 4 corners we have 14-inch Oldsmobile Super Stock II wheels all wrapped in raised white letter BFG's. Very 70s and very nice.

Interior
Opening one of the doors we are greeted by pristine textured gold vinyl horizontally stitched with nice chrome accents, window cranks, and vinyl wood grain panels with gold carpeting below. Front buckets in high back form have buttoned and stitched front and back bolsters with some curved smooth inserts, also in gold. The rear bench is all vinyl and takes on the style of the buckets. A look forward to the dash and a very clean one indeed, with gold color padded vinyl and curved metal to match, and plenty of wood burl appliqué for this dash front. This includes the round gauge cluster background and a strip below that houses the temp sliders and Olds AM radio. Just below the radio is a dealer installed Oldsmobile 8 track player. The gauges include a tic top tach on drivers right. Factory air is also optioned in. A rally steering wheel fronts the dash, and the console which sports a sleek design, houses a Hurst shifter. Clean gold carpeting in great shape floods the floors. The headliner looks good and tight, and it has original lighting. A shout to the trunk interior which is beautifully preserved and coated in charcoal gray speckled trunk paint.

Drivetrain
A 455 ci V8 which was produced in Lansing Mi in 1969 is a correct W-30 engine casting number but with an earlier production date that is not original to this car. Cylinder heads are correct for a W30 engine, and a single 4-barrel carburetor is atop. The intake is correct for a W30 car as is the carb correct for a manual transmission W30 car. Muncie provides the non-original M20 4-speed manual behind this mill, and all sits and fits very nicely in this clean restored engine bay. The air intake is functional using the scoops in the hood for extra air. The rear axle is also correct and is a 12-bolt 3.91 posi “TO” stamped carrier.

Undercarriage
Nice and straight with some undercoating chip off and a small bit of surface rust, but the frame is strong and sturdy. Power disk brakes are upfront, drum brakes are in back.

Drive-Ability
A quick starter and excellent performer with the 455 cubes and 4 barrel carburetor. All functions are working, and options are correct right down to the hood pins. Plenty of power, good braking, and a comfy ride.

An extremely nice example from the year 1970. Cared for and garaged, very clean car with a mere 11,904 miles but the title shows the mileage as exempt. Interesting 70's gold motif inside and out, with all surfaces in very nice condition. Also, the W30 option with those correct extras. Nearly like a new Spanish coin, turn the key and start enjoying 1970 all over again.
