If you love rare muscle cars, then we have a tantalizing treat for you. For our new Oldsmobile 442 giveaway, we searched high and low for one of the most amazing street machines of the original muscle car era. Here it is – a 1967 442 W30, which the original owner, an Oldsmobile engineer, prepped at GM’s world-famous Milford Proving Grounds and raced at the NHRA Nationals in 1967. It is 1 of 129 post coupe W30s produced and 1 of 2 that were test cars for General Motors.
This 1967 Oldsmobile 442 W30 has super low miles because it was driven a quarter-mile at a time.
It features a no-expense-spared frame-off restoration in its original Ebony Black exterior with matching black interior. It retains all of its “born-with” speed parts, including a numbers-matching, blueprinted 350hp 400ci big-block engine, Forced-Air induction, red fender liners, relocated battery location, Rocket Rallye Pac instruments and much more.
If owning one of the most incredible Oldsmobile W-Machines of the 1960s is on your to-do list, then this 1967 Oldsmobile 442 W-30 has your name written all over it.
Way back when folks considered themselves lucky if they owned a color television, a young Oldsmobile Test Track engineer special ordered this 1967 442 W30 and, once built, deployed to the General Motors’ Milford Proving Grounds where it served as a as a High-Performance Test Car the first few months of its life. This black-on-black W30 factory drag racer then campaigned in major NHRA events, representing the Oldsmobile brand on and off the track.
It is believed to be one of only two W30 cars special ordered by Oldsmobile employees for NHRA racing that year.
Did you know that 4-4-2 stands for four-barrel, four-speed and dual exhaust? That's why all 1964 Olds 442s are four-speeds. But, that was only for the first year. Because the name 4-4-2 became so popular, Olds stuck with it, even though nearly half of all 4-4-2s in 1965 were automatics. In 1967, you could order an automatic just as easily as a four-speed.>
And did you know that NHRA Super Stock and Stock had separate classes for stick shifts and automatics? For example Super Stock had ten classes evenly split between stick shifts and automatics. This wonderful grand-prize 442 W30 raced in S/SA (superstock) and in C/SA (stock), which were the NHRA classes for automatics with its horsepower-to-weight ratio!
With only 32,000 original miles, a fantastic frame-off restoration and provenance from the original Oldsmobile engineer, this is a holy grail of the hot muscle-car era! Don’t let somebody else score the lucky winning ticket.
You deserve a pedigreed muscle car this nice.
