STK 2477 1966 Oldsmobile 442 Tri-Carb

This is definitely not your Father's Oldsmobile. The 4-4-2 option to the 1966 Cutlass came in a variety of flavors and this stunning coupe is one of two very high-end performance offerings – the 'L69 4-4-2 Tri-Carb Performance Package'. The L69 option was available only in 1966 and only 2,121 were delivered. This California 4-4-2 retains the factory drivetrain and was the benefactor of a full frame-off restoration that was completed in 2013. (There is a CD included with the car that documents the restoration process.) Other documentation includes a build sheet, window sticker and numerous dated registrations. The beautiful 2-stage Target Red finish is accented by Olds 5-spoke SSI chrome wheels and redline radials. The black vinyl interior is fully restored to virtually factory condition. Our 4-4-2 was originally delivered with all of the factory “Deluxe Interior Equipment” packages including a factory tach and 'economy gauge'. An Oldsmobile AM/FM provides tunes, there are retractable seat belts for everyone and the 'Hurst' shifter could not look more at home. All that said, it appears this Olds was originally ordered for one purpose - straight-line acceleration - and it was built to be as light as possible. There is no A/C, no power steering and no power brakes. Under the hood, the rebuilt matching numbers 400ci Oldsmobile powerplant produces 360bhp and a whopping 440lb/ft of torque. However, progressive linkage to the (3) Rochester carbs allows for very streetable performance. It is backed by the factory Muncie 4-speed close-ration (M21) manual transmission and factory 10-bolt posi-traction differential (G80) with 3.55:1 gearing. Suspension is 4-corner coil springs with a 4-link rear axle and front/rear sway bars. Drum brakes utilize 9.5” drums, manual steering components are heavy duty and the factory spec exhaust is 2” diameter. This Olds is a beast. Many folks have said that if Oldsmobile would have marketed their '60s performance offerings with some energy, sales of the Pontiac GTO may have been left in the dust. This 4-4-2 L69 adds an exclamation point to that statement. ALL VEHICLES SOLD “AS IS”.
