General discription

New arrival! Coming soon!

 

Another great find by PTTM, and we are REAL proud of to be able to offer it to our clients!, 


This true and rare numbers matching, fully documented! And original 15000 low miles 1970 Olds 442 Holiday coupe 455cui 4 speed! It's also a real documented W30 with the W25 ram air hood car.  This car is one of the last TRUE muscle car legends !, and an amazing car to drive. 


This car is in amazing and super correct, all original condition and it has only 15000 ! 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 deluxe interior and its factory extra cost option white rally stripes. It stands on its factory original optional painted rally wheels and has the rare and original W25 ram air package with the special and functional dual scoop sport hood and its factory optional stripe package and wheel opening moldings which all make this car stand out even more.  Wow what a looker !


With only Approx 645, 455 370 HP 4 speeds cars ever 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 drive line 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.

 

We estimate this car is one of only a handfull ever build combined with all its special factory original options and being a genuine 4 speed car with console, and in this great and rare blue in and exterior color combination that looks just plain stunning. And how many of them would have survived more than 50 years, and still be in this all original condition today ? well we think not many for sure. It just makes this one all the more special and unique. 


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 335HP factory hp rating, which in reality was much more as was proven by many car journalists at the time. But when it was ordered with the performance package in a 442 and also the W25 cold air intake system, these cars produced a stunning 370 HP although many estimated the real HP to be 425 or more. But what makes these Olds 455 W30's truly amazing is there humungous torque !  more than 500 ft.lbs ! ( 675 NM), figures that even in today's world are huge. Of course this W30 is also correctly equipped with the special lightweight inner fenders. 


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

as four speed cars had a higher lift and duration cam. Four speed cars received the aggressive # 402569 cam with 328/328 degrees advertised duration and 475/475 inch lift were the automatic cars had the 285/287 duration and 470 lift cams. The comp ratio was 10.5:1


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, besides its better camshaft as stated above, is also 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. There for a 4 speed car is just much more valuable in a real Musclecar than an automatic trans car. 


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. And many car journalists and reporters back in the stated, these 442's were amongst the absolute fastest and the strongest muscle cars around on the streets that could

even beat the most famous engine's of its era, the Chrysler 426 Hemi. 


The car was, although it's a proven low mileage, and its survivor status, restored with respect for it's 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 absolutely loaded with rare factory options and has a gorgeous, very original blue factory interior with bucket seats and a 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 15000 miles. A super rare car indeed.


We personally can state honestly that we have never seen a higher factory optioned car like this one before and we probably never see one again in the near future as these car's are becomming rarer by the day. And keep in mind that this car, besides being loaded with these options that it has all these special options proven as factory original to this car by its buildsheet and paperwork. So this is NOT a car that was a base car and all the options you see are later added or faked. 


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 as stated, and we think its accurate when we studied the car and its components. 


The Oldsmobile 442 with the 455-370 hp 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. 


The car was restored between 2016/2018 and only drove a few hundred miles since and today's odometer readings are only a mere 15400 miles!. The engine runs like clockwork and was equipped with all new seals and gaskets as inside it was just brand new. The clutch was also rebuilt and received new pressure plates but otherwise all is left stock. The complete drive line and all the bushings and suspension, brakes, fuel systems were rebuilt at the same time.


The body and structure of the car is super solid and rust free and the cars' factory original color of Azur blue metallic has a great shine. All the chrome, emblems, glass, and trim are also in as new condition and the complete interior of the car, which is still mostly all original and untouched, was just restored where it was needed. The underside of the car is also very clean and restored and highly detailed.


All in all this car is in fantastic condition, and we would say very close to concourse condition, however that would mean it's a trailer queen and that's not the case with this car. It was restored with great care for its originality, but also to be really used and enjoyed. PTTM is now performing

a freshen up of the restoration and the car will be fully checked and serviced before it comes for

sale in our showroom. When were done with it will maybe even look better then the day it was build. 


And with this car being a true 4 speed W 30 car, in this color combination and with its many special original factory options and with this car's documentation and its low mileage its one of the best you can't find. As a car of this caliber with no proof 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 and a really rare and unique find that highly collectible and a great investment opportunity as well for your funds. We have recently seen other W30's getting sold at auctions for well over 135000,- Usd, and these cars couldn't even come close to this cars pedigree and originality and its many special and rare options and proven low mileage and not in the stunning color combo that this car has. .


The first owner who ordered this car new, must have had some $ to spend as he ordered almost every option that the factory had to offer. The car might also have been a dealer demo car or a a compagny car, or maybe even a car that was presented on carshows in the 70's as its incredibly high optioned. But we can't prove that at this point. 


So all in all this car will be a great investment opportunity for any serious muscle or classic car collector, as our asking price will leave room for future growth in value. However more important maybe, the car is also just great fun to drive and enjoy or to winn concours car shows with !

The car is currently being detailed and upgraded, checked and serviced and will be for sale in our showroom soon.

  • 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 !
