442 stands for 4-speed/4-barrel/Dual Exhaust! This 442 has it all!!!

All of the head lights were replaced with new low beam and high beam Halogen headlights for premium
brightness. I did replace all the tail light and brake light bulbs as well. All of the chrome on this true 442 is
mostly in nice driver's quality condition or better. The prior owner said this true 442 does still have the
original 4-speed transmission as well as the original 12-bolt positive traction "posi" rear-end believed to be a
3.23 with the original boxed control arms, and the original rear sway bar. The original posi tag is still in place.

The hood is an original 1970 Genuine GM W-25 steel framed ram-air hood with the factory screen with brand new
chrome twistdowns. I believe the 442 ram-air hood is the nicest looking hood on any muscle car bar none. The
carpeting looks like it was replaced at some point, because it is in fairly nice shape with newer door sills. There
is also a new set of four black carpeted floor mats. The bucket seats were recently professionally reupholstered,
so they should be nice and comfortable for many years to come. There is a nice factory 4-speed console. I added the
brand new boot that surrounds the shifter handle with the plastic housing and new chrome insert to the center of
the console. The balance of the interior appears in very nice condition as shown in the pictures with all 5 pairs
of the original correct 1970 seat belts. The dash board is in very nice shape and the original AM/FM radio is still
in the dash. The radio will need to be hooked up, but at least this dash was never cut up like was typically done
back in the day to fit aftermarket stereo's. The dash includes the rare options of rally gauges, and the classic
tic-toc-tac original to the car, but will need to be hooked up.

Inside the drivers door still maintains the original blue General Motors manufacturer decal with the vin
number still in tact showing this car was built in March of 1970 which also verifies the drivers door as original
to this 442. The power convertible top canvass is brand spanking new with the glass back window. I never worked on
getting the top working, so that will be left up to the new owner. We had a very rough winter up here in Wisconsin,
and I don't have a shop anymore. I was limited with all the prep work it took to present this 442 for sale. All the
top down fun can be enjoyed by the new owner. Spring is here, so there will be plenty of months to enjoy a
convertible like this. The top padding was all replaced at the time the top was changed.

This 442 sits on a set of four Firestone G 70-14 Wide-O-Oval raised white lettered ply tires with very nice
like new tread mounted on 14 inch Super Stock I wheels like when these 442's rolled out of the factory onto the
showroom floor. All four wheels have all four bolt-on center caps, all four beauty trim rings, and all new chrome
lug nuts. The floors look in good condition as well as the frame. The trunk floor looks to be original, but appears
that some patchwork was done at some point, but the trunk floor was coated with A/C Delco black and aqua spatter
spray to appear like it came out of the factory. There is a new trunk gasket with a new trunk mat that has an
original 1970 442 restored jack, jack stand, bumper mount, and crow bar sitting on top of the new mat. Also
included in the trunk is full size Super Stock I spare wheel with a full size spare tire. This way if there is ever
a mishap the car can be back on the road in minutes.

This 442 came from the factory with power front disc brakes. It is very rare to find a real 442 with this many
options that include: tinted glass, power steering, power disc brakes, rally gauges, tic-toc-tac, bucket seats,
console, 4-speed, matching clam shell sport mirrors with the drivers side being remote controlled, chrome door edge
guards, genuine GM ram-air hood with functioning ram-air cleaner, genuine GM Whale Tail Spoiler, cut-out rear
bumper with chrome trumpet exhaust tips, and Super Stock I Wheels. This Olds is steered by the awesome four spoke
442 sport wheel. The actual mileage stated on the odometer reads 62,378 miles.

eBay Find of the Day: 1976 GMC Motorhome is a jolly green giant

Wed, 18 Jun 2014

If you have a need to relive the 1970s, then here is the vehicle for you. This groovy blast from the past is a 1976 GMC Motorhome currently for auction in Florida on eBay Motors, and it is one green machine - just not in the modern sense.
The seller claims that this beast has had just two owners and has covered a mere 61,308 miles in its decades on the road. It's reportedly never been restored or repainted and comes with all of the necessary books and manuals. A 7.5-liter (455-cubic-inch) Oldsmobile V8 with a three-speed Turbo-Hydramatic automatic transmission powering the front wheels propels this far-out RV, and the double set of rear wheels out back use a self-leveling air suspension to provide a cushy ride.
The purported low miles and good condition really make this GMC a stand out, though. The exterior combination of lime stripes and beige with just a touch of green is like nothing else on the road today. Plus, the polished bumpers and wheels make it all pop. Inside, it's even better with monochromatic green upholstery and shag carpet. It features everything you'd ever need on a long trip, including a bathroom, kitchenette and lots of seating. The only hint of modernization is an HD TV next to the stove, but its size is a perfect fit for the hole there.

Ferrari FF pitted against Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser in crazy Generation Gap comparison

Thu, 13 Nov 2014

The folks behind Generation Gap have lost their minds with this latest video. The goal here is to determine the ultimate family cruiser, but the choices are what you would least expect, with a heavily modded 1970 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser going up against a 2012 Ferrari FF.
You might anticipate an over-40-year-old Oldsmobile to pale in comparison to any modern Ferrari, but this wagon has a ton of secrets under its skin thanks to Lingenfelter. First, it packs a supercharged LS3 V8 with a claimed 650 horsepower and a six-speed manual gearbox. That big upgrade in power is further helped with air suspension and massive Wilwood disc brakes. The result is nothing short of deafening, with blaring yelps whenever the driver even nudges the accelerator.
The alternative sounds just as good, albeit in very different way. The Ferrari's 6.3-liter V12 pumps out 651 hp and 504 pound-feet with a part-time all-wheel drive system. While the FF lacks a lot of the hauling ability of the Olds, it makes up for the deficit in handling, luxury, and in many eyes, simply by having the famous prancing horse on the grille.

Jay Leno bangs up his own Toronado in GT6

Wed, 11 Dec 2013

Ever since Gran Turismo 4, Jay Leno has had at least one of his cars included in the popular racing simulator (starting with the Tank Car), and more of his machines appears in Gran Turismo 6. They include this nose-heavy, front-wheel-drive V8-powered muscle car. Yes, that aptly describes a 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado - except Leno's is rear-wheel drive. And it has a Cadillac CTS-V race engine modified to pump out 1,070 horsepower.
For the latest Jay Leno's Garage episode, he takes his real Toronado out for a cruise and then drives the virtual one like he stole it, accruing some body damage along the way. Leno also drives the virtual supercar Mercedes-Benz designed for GT6, the AMG Vision Gran Turismo Concept that debuted at the LA Auto Show, along with the real one, which is a 1:1-scale model. The model is radio-controlled and equipped with a small electric motor, sufficient to move it on and off of auto show floors.
Head below to watch the episode, which includes a few words from GT6 creator Kazunori Yamauchi.
