This 1966 Oldsmobile 442 was delivered new to Lowes Oldsmobile, Inc. of Elkin, North Carolina, and remained with its first owner until 2005. It is finished in Burgundy Mist over a red vinyl interior and is powered by a 400ci V8 paired with a close-ratio four-speed manual transmission and a 3.90:1 limited-slip differential. Equipment includes a Tri-Power induction setup with three two-barrel carburetors, a push-button AM radio, a Hurst shifter, a dual exhaust system, and 14″ Hurst chrome wheels.
This 442 is offered with its dealer car shipping order, its Protect-O-Plate, its voided original title, and the owner operating manual. The body is finished in Burgundy Mist (N) and features chrome bumpers, chrome drip rail and window moldings, Soft-Ray tinted glass, and tri-color 442 badges. The seller believes that the car was repainted during previous ownership. The reverse lights are said to illuminate when the running lights are turned on.
14″ Hurst chrome wheels are wrapped in 215/75 Coker Classic redline tires, and the included shipping order shows that the car was factory-equipped with heavy-duty manual steering. Braking is handled by four-wheel drums, and the car rides on coil springs at all four corners.
The interior features low-back bucket seats upholstered in red vinyl, matching door panels, red carpets, and a maroon dash pad. Equipment includes a Hurst shifter, a center console, a push-button AM radio, glove box and luggage compartment lamps, and embroidered floor mats. The radio does not work.
The red two-spoke steering wheel frames a 120-mph speedometer, a fuel-level gauge, and generator, oil pressure, and temperature warning lights. A manifold vacuum gauge is mounted to the center console. The five-digit odometer shows 45k miles,
