THE OLDSMOBILE 4-4-2

Although the Oldsmobiles of the 1950s and 1960s had powerful engines, they were big and heavy cars primarily sold to successful middle-class families that needed a solid driver. That all changed in 1964 with the introduction of the 4-4-2 package for the F-85 Cutlass. The new 4-4-2 offered serious performance, and suddenly, Oldsmobile had entered the muscle car wars. New sheet metal came in 1966 and again in 1968. Finally, the sleek 4-4-2 had the looks to match its very credible performance. The new body was carried over into 1969 with only minor changes. Under the hood, one could pick among the base 400ci V-8, or the massive 455ci powerhouse. Even more ponies were on tap with the W-30 and Hurst packages.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Back in 1969 it was still possible to special order a production car, and that's exactly what the first owner of this Hurst 4-4-2 did. Heavily optioned with the most desirable specifications such as air-conditioning, power steering and power brakes, it was finished the second week of April 1969 in the Lansing, Michigan-based GM plant. It left the factory in the same Cameo White with Firefrost Gold trim scheme that the car wears today – a spectacular combination that makes this a rare and desirable piece of American muscle car history.

The car showed up in the beginning of this millennium at a Texas-based collection. The car was then sold by that collector to a Mr. Hutchins of Niagara Falls, New York, who commissioned a restoration from Jerry's Classic Auto Restoration of Buffalo, New York. The car was finished to an exceedingly high standard while in their care in 2004, so much so that this fine example of the Lansing-built muscle car would become a regular show winner with first place awards from the 2009 Oldsmobile Club of America Meeting.

Still in beautifully restored condition, this handsomely equipped Cameo White 4-4-2 can be driven anywhere or shown successfully at a variety of venues.
