This 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 W30 4-speed convertible is only one of 33 built out of a total of 113 produced in
72. Sporting its original Viking Blue exterior (code 026), white bucket seat interior, a white A coded top with
matching original stripes, manual steering, tilt sport wheel, super stock III wheels and the W30 package.
This highly sought after model is a true rarity to be among only 33 1972 4-speeds, 32 1971 4-speeds and 96 1970
4-speed convertibles. 1972 is the only year that the X designates the W30 option within the VIN. This car was
built in Lansing, MI, sold in Lansing MI and 10 years ago moved to the Chicagoland area.
The L-77 Coded engine with 300 hp 455 V-8 balanced and blue printed from the factory. One of the last true
muscle cars offering in excess of 300 hp.This vehicle has its born with numbers matching engine, M21-4-speed
transmission, 3.73 ratio rear end (gears replaced), carburetor, distributor, alternator and aluminum intake.
The second owner purchased this 442 in 1973 and had it appraised in 1991 by Excel Appraisal Service. The appraisal
states the actual mileage at that time was 43,814. The current odometer reading is 45,765, showing very little
mileage has been added to date.
The pictures will show the condition of the paint work that has been done to this 442. The appraisal will confirm
that most of the paint work that was done below the stripes was completed prior to the date of the appraisal. After
speaking with the second owner, she had revealed that the 442 had been in an accident in 1974 and had been repair
with old lacquer paint. The repaired areas and the overall original paint is showing evidence of wear and tear,
however it's too nice to repaint. There is some visible rust in the typical A body locations even though it was
undercoated in its early days. The trunk has its original factory splatter paint, not perfect, but too nice to
mess with an original survivor. The tires are 20+ years-old and should not be driven too far at highway speeds!
The convertible top and interior has a couple of small rips and tears due to age and dryness. The engine
compartment and the radiator support have been repainted, but require some detailing. The floor pans have held up
well for a midwest car due to early undercoating and plenty of oil leaks.
