It is really a find if you can spot a real 1967 Oldsmobile 442, let alone a convertible. Well, look no further as we have a sweet one here at Skyway Classics.
The Oldsmobile 4-4-2 (also known as the 442) is a muscle car produced by Oldsmobile between the 1964 and 1980 model years. Introduced as an option package for US-sold F-85 and Cutlass models.
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. It was originally written "4-4-2" (with badging showing hyphens between the numerals) and remained hyphenated throughout Oldsmobile's use of the designation.
The 442 we have here at Skyway is a restored car from top to bottom. And as you will see below on the tags, it is a verified “real” 442 convertible, not a clone or tribute car like you see on a lot of other national sites.

The 442's engine is painted the correct Olds gold and has correct valve covers, hoses, PS, PB, and a detailed engine compartment. The 442 rides on 5 spoke mag wheels and great wide tires with a redone suspension featuring newer shocks, springs, and detailed underside.
