1967 Oldsmobile 442

1967 OLDSMOBILE 442 BACKGROUND
Oldsmobile spun the 442 off of the Cutlass/F-85. For the 1967 model year, it was offered in three body styles: The Holiday Coupe (2-doors with no post), the Sport Coupe (2-doors with a post), and the Convertible. Appearance-wise, the 442 received a special black-out treatment on the grille, along with a 442-only hood with two banks of working louvers, and of course, the usual handful of special badging. Underneath, the suspension and brakes were beefed up with off-the-shelf Police Package components (including shocks, springs and stabilizer bars), along with stronger front engine mounts and a heavy duty driveshaft. All 1967 Oldsmobile 442s got a 400 V8, albeit in three forms, with 300hp, 350hp and 360hp. The W-30 continued to be the top-performance option package.

1967 OLDSMOBILE 442 ENGINE OPTIONS
There were three available engines for the '67 442, and all were 400s. The base engine was the L66 400 V8 with 300 horsepower. Next up was the Rocket V8 with 350 horses, then at the top of the heap was the W-30 400 with 360 horsepower. The 1967 Oldsmobile 442 with top-line W30 option was capable of a 6.5-second zero-to-60 time, and it could cover the 1/4-mile in 14.1 seconds at 103 mph. Heady stuff in 1967. The base transmission remained a 3-speed manual, with the 3-speed Turbo Hydramatic, and two 4-speeds (one with close-ratios) optional. All had floor- or console-mounted shifters.

ABOVE & BELOW: This is the Rocket V8, which is a 400 that makes 350 horsepower.

WE’RE JUST GETTING STARTED

We are growing as fast as we can, gathering and taking eye-popping photos of awesome Classic American Muscle Cars, doing research on specifications and history, and writing content. We all love these great cars, so it’s not like work, in fact, it’s a blast. But it does take time. If you see that we’re lacking in some area, we just don’t have the photos and/or content yet to finish. Give us some time and as we get more eye-popping photos, we will continue to flesh out the site. Join us as we grow, but please be patient with that growth.

PS: Special thanks go out to Specialty Sales (www.SpecialtySales.com) for the hundreds of eye-popping pictures they've allowed us to use. Specialty has 4 classic car showrooms in the San Francisco Bay Area full of gorgeous classics. We'd also like to thank The Goodguys (www.good-guys.com) for putting on some of the best car shows around, and allowing me to take all these great pictures. Thanks again to you both.
