Carroll Street Auto is proud to offer this beautifully and freshly restored 1972 Oldsmobile 442 W-30 hardtop. This documented, "real deal" 442 W-30 was acquired from a very high-quality private collection. Being a 1972 model year, this 442 represents the last year of the handsome 1970-1972 Cutlass body style as the following year would bring the controversially-styled, heavier and less potent "Colonnade" generation. The 442 is finished in factory "Radiant Green", a very rare color that was offered only this year. That gleaming color covers the impressive, all-original and arrow straight body panels that boast proper alignment. The proper white hood patches and bodyside 442 stripes, along with the chrome "Super Stock" style wheels wearing BF Goodrich T/As, add to the incredible presence this "last of the good ones" 442 has. Inside the crisp, brilliant white interior the 442 is equipped with the Strato bucket seats, center console (with Hurst "His and Hers" dual-gate ratchet shifter), a restored instrument cluster (including tach and rally gauges), power steering, manual front disc brakes, AM/FM radio and a driver's side remote mirror. Under the factory "Force Air" twin-scooped hood is a highly detailed engine bay packing the potent W-30 455 V8 with the correct air cleaner element, aluminum intake, carburetor, distributor, heads and block that were all rebuilt during the comprehensive restoration. Look under the 442 and you'll see that it was indeed the recipient of a complete frame-off restoration and only needs a light detailing to the underside to become what we call a "lasagna car", meaning so clean you could eat pasta off the floor pans and frame rails. The extensive documentation on the car includes the "Protect-O-Plate", owners manual and emissions control warranty info. Originally from South Carolina according to registration receipts dating back to 1983 and a copy of a South Carolina title with original owner. This is an investment grade, solid #2 condition 442 W-30 that represents a rare opportunity. For more information or to schedule time to see this thrilling icon of muscle car history, just give us a call at 603-627-5595. Financing is offered through our approved lender, interesting trades are welcome and enclosed shipping can be arranged.
