We are excited to offer this amazing 1971 Oldsmobile 442 convertible for sale. This very rare muscle car (one of only 1,304 built in 1971) is a loving tribute to a long lost Olds. The frame off restoration was performed by American Classic Restorations in Uxbridge, Massachusetts in 2006 for a super enthusiast who had owned a similar one of these in his youth. The finished product puts many trailer queen show cars to shame.
#344671M183468 comes from the Michael Schudroff Collection to our hands via auction last year at RM in Monterey, California. She last was sold with a pre-auction estimate of $150,000-$200,000, this year she will be worth significantly less so make me a fair offer and have this incredible car for a fraction of her real value.
The restoration shop is known for there detail and kept record of the cars progression week by week till completed, these records show that every mechanical part was rebuilt or replaced with NOS or OEM parts. The engine was rebuilt not only to the highest specs but was balanced and blueprinted as well as having hardened valve guides installed to run on contemporary fuel.
Options include the original outside air induction setup under the highly desirable W-25 hood, 3:42 rear end with W-27 cover, Rocket Rallye Pack with center sports console, sport steering wheel, bucket seats, AM/FM solid state radio and SSII wheels with new BF Goodrich T/A tires.
This beast is covered in very desirable Viking blue paint with Artic white stripes and factory correct pearl white interior and white top.
The two year restoration ended up costing the prior owner $130,000, a staggering sum but obvious immediately when you look at the quality everywhere you touch. Every clamp, tag, sticker and inspection mark has been carefully placed in it's correct factory location and for all intents and purposes this appears as though it was a brand new Olds 442 off the showroom floor.
The vehicle comes as-is with original owners manual, spare keys, tank sticker, and folder with restoration documentation. Trades gladly considered, leasing and financing available with approved credit.
