AutoHunter Spotlight: 1968 Oldsmobile 4-4-2

Has a heart transplant from Dr. Oldsmobile

-

Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this 1968 Oldsmobile 4-4-2 Holiday Coupe. It is powered by a Rocket 455 V8 backed by a three-speed automatic transmission. Features include air conditioning, power steering and brakes, AM radio, and Super Stock II wheels. Finished in light green-gold over a matching cloth and vinyl interior, this Olds comes from the selling dealer with a clear title.

The reportedly rust-free body has been finished in Willow Gold. Features include hood louvers, bodyside protective molding, fender-mounted antenna, wheel well trim, and notched rear bumper with protruding exhaust “trumpets.” A walk-around and test drive video can be seen below.

A set of argent 14-inch Oldsmobile Super Stock II wheels is wrapped in 235/70 Dayton Daytona radial tires.

The cabin is furnished with Willow Gold cloth and vinyl interior including front bucket seats. Features include power steering, air conditioning, center console-mounted automatic transmission shifter, and AM radio.

The instrument panel includes a 120-mph speedometer, clock, fuel gauge, and warning lights for various systems. The odometer reads 62,230 miles, though the true mileage on this vehicle is unknown.

The original 325-horsepower 400 has been replaced with a Rocket 455, which is backed by a Turbo-Hydramatic 400 automatic transmission.

This Olds was factory-equipped with an independent front suspension and a solid rear-drive axle. Braking is provided by power drums. A dual exhaust system exits at the rear.

Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in metropolitan Phoenix.
