1971 Oldsmobile 442 Convertible 455 Cu In Engine
This was the first car I purchased for what has become my own little collection of cars. In 1982, I was looking for a Oldsmobile 442 convertible and happened upon this car and purchased it from a private owner. The car needed lots of work and I proceded to have our Body Shop tear it down, strip off all the old paint and apply a fresh coat of Laquer paint.
I replaced the top, interior and trim items in need and put new tires and wheels on it. Some 25 years later, I had the engine completely rebuilt, balanced and blueprinted. Many new hotter than stock parts went into the rebuild and the horsepower increased tremendeously. The list of improvements is way too long to list, but let’s just say “It’s not your fathers Oldsmobile anymore”
