General discription

New arrival! comming soon!


Another great find by PTTM, and we are proud to be able to offer it to our clients!, this true and rare numbers matching, fully documented! and original LOW MILES 1970 Olds 442 Holiday coupe 455cui 4 speed !, its also a real documented W25 Ram air hood car.

This car is in amazing and super correct, all original condition and it has only 14000 ! documented original miles on the odometer. The car is LOADED with special options and has a great color combination of Azur blue metallic paint, blue de luxe interior and its factory extra cost option white rally stripes. It stands on its factory original optional rally wheels that were also painted in the correct color. WOW what a stunning looking car right ?.


With only aprox 3900 455 365 HP 4 speeds cars produced, this car can be considered a true collectors item. And that combined with the fact the car is genuine original and still has its numbers match driveline in place and is also highly documented makes it a real holy grail as

documented cars are much more valuable and rare than cars without that proof of pedigree.

For 1970 Olds introduced a complete new model and the base engine for the 4-4-2 became the 455 cui powerhouse with a monstrous 365HP factory hp rating, which in reality was much more as was proven by many car journalists at the time. Many estimated the real HP to be 425 or more. 

Combined with this cars 4 speed you have one of the absolute fastest production cars of 1970.

After 1970, as with many car brands, the 455's HP ratings dropped considerably because of the fuel crisis that was at hand and also because of the ever-increasing demand for less polluting cars. This means that the car you see here is one of the last true performance cars Oldsmobile ever produced.

The car was, although its real LOW miles, and its survivor status, restored with respect for its originality and rarity and almost every component on this car is therefor still factory original and correct for the car. The fact that the car is so original and super solid must also be due to the fact that it was almost never driven and pampered until the day it was restored. This makes the car look almost the same then the day it left the showroom of Olds dealer Kailer Youngquist inc. back in 1970. 

As stated the car is also loaded with factory options and has a gorgeous, as new blue factory interior with bucket seats and console shifter, power steer, rally dash and rally suspension just to name some. We found this amazing car with its last owner who took great care of it. The car also comes with a written low mileage guarantee, by what we think was the original owner and of course the original title that also states its low original 14000 miles. A super rare car indeed. 

The car comes with its factory original build sheet !, original dealer window sticker!, production card and owner history, it just doesn't get any better than that. All the cars parts, the engine and the drivetrain were checked by us on correct numbers and casting codes, and all appears to be factory original to the car. The low miles is also documented, and we think its accurate. 

A 442 alone is already a fantastic car by itself, but a 455cui Big block car with a manual 4 speed transmission is one of the fastest muscle cars of its era. As you probably know a 4 speed manual transmission car is faster than its automatic component due to the fact that the automatics lose around 30-35% of the HP to the drive line as were 4 speeds only lose a few percent. A manual 4 speed is also way more fun to drive and feel and use the real potential of a muscle car.

The Oldsmobile 442 with the 455-365hp factory hp rated engine is considered as one of the strongest and fastest muscle car of its time and a real investment grade classic indeed. And with this car's documentation and its low mileage its one of the best you cant find. As a car of this caliber with no prove of its history and originality, might just as well be a clone as most 442's these day's are. NOT this one sir.. It's the real deal and completely original.

  • Guide: Matching numbers

    In the collector car hobby, most investment-minded buyers are acutely interested in a specific car’s history. One of the main aspects of that history is an original or, as most people state it, numbers-matching drivetrain. At pedaltothemetal muscecars we feature a plethora of original and numbers-matching classics including ‘Cudas, Road Runners, Chevelles, Camaros, Corvettes and Trans Ams. And, if a potential buyer knows how to properly identify and interpret certain manufacturing codes, they can further validate their car’s history, or on request we can provide it.

  • Vehicle claims and descriptions

    Vehicle/product descriptions, representations and claims on or offline are based on what can be seen by the human eye, documentation, previous professional experience, opinion, factory claims, and, or, information passed on to us by previous owners or restorers. It's to the best of our knowledge that everything we advertise has all indications of being that claim. Please inquire as to what documentation we have on the vehicle you are purchasing or feel free to ask any additional questions you might have, But by no means you can accept our answers as facts as the are our interpretation and might not match yours. It is with integrity and honesty that we describe our cars, but they are in fact, up to 50 years old, may have had many previous owners, modifications or alterations that are unknown to the us, so it's not possible to verify everything about every car in detail. Thereby the stated conditions or details of a car can never ever be taken as a fact. As always we welcome personal inspections and or independent appraisers prior to a sale. Incase we speak of "Original" or "Matching numbers" it means that we asume that to be the case, but with old classic cars thats by no means a guarantee. So please feel free to verify that in person or with a third party.

    Pttm goes a step further than almost every other seller(s), as we also do a full inspection of our vehicles prior to having them for sale in our showroom and make repairs improvements if needed so. And when a vehicle/product is sold we give it a full service check before you receive it !
