This 1970 Oldsmobile 442 W-30 is one of a kind. The car was completely gone through in 2008 and was restored as a resto-mod, although the car could easily be returned to stock if desired. I am not the original owner and I purchased the car following the restoration. The description listed below was provided by the restoration shop that completed the work. This is an original W-30 car, but it is not a numbers matching car. If requested, I can provide the contact information for the shop, which can verify the work and the authenticity of the vehicle. Trust me, you won't be disappointed with this car when you see it in person. It's got tons of power with a wicked rumble and exhaust note to match.
Body: This 442 still retains most of its original sheet metal. When we obtained the car it had some very minor rust issues on the bottom sides of the quarters behind the rear wheels and on the lower front fenders. These areas were cut away and replaced with patch panels. All of the remaining sheet metal from the floor pans, to the roof are all original. This car is now 100% rust free. The body is as straight as an arrow. This 442 also has its original OW2 Ram Air Hood which is fully functional and in excellent condition. This 442 was originally gold but that color scheme was scrapped and we went with a 1969 GM Blue which looks absolutely gorgeous in person. It was done in a base coat clear coat setup and was done professionally. The majority of the chrome on this car is brand new. The bumpers and grill, brand new. The car has all new weather stripping. The doors shut with ease and line up perfectly. The windows also roll up and down with ease as they should. All of the glass is in excellent shape with no major pitting or scratches. The 442 is sitting on a set of new American Racing Torque Thrust II's (20's and 18's) and almost new tires. The car also has an original spoiler, not a remanufactured spoiler.
Engine & Mechanical: The motor within this 442 is a correct 1970 date code 455 but is not the original numbers matching setup. It has been completely gone through and is in excellent condition. The motor does not smoke, leak, or burn an excess amount of fluids. It has been balanced and here are is a list of what has been done with this motor:
• TRW Forged Flattop Pistons
• ARP Rod Bolts
• ARP Main Studs
• Mondello High Volume Oil Pump
• Mondello Oil Restrictors
• Edelbrock Aluminum Heads
• Torquer Intake
• 950 HP Holley Carburetor
• Powerdyne Super Charger
• B & M 2500 Stall Converter
• Aluminum Radiator
The transmission in this 442 is a Turbo 400 and it too has been completely rebuilt during the restoration process. The transmission is controlled by a new B & M automatic shifter. The 442 still retains its original 342 Posi rear end which was also gone through and is in excellent working order. The car now has aftermarket lift bars on it. The 442 also has a brand new 3" Exhaust setup and ceramic coated headers which compliment the motor very nicely. The 442 also has a new power steering setup and new power brake setup. Both are in excellent working order. The car had AC from the factory, but it is not currently set up.
Interior: The interior as you will see below, has been completely gone through. New carpet, new headliner, front and rear seats have been completely redone, The dash is also in excellent condition as it has been refurbished as well. The only wear you will find through out the interior has been on the drivers side seat which could easily be cleaned up. All of the electrical components on this 442 have been completely gone through and are in excellent working order. The 442 also has a new CD player, amp, and LCD that folds out. All of which are in excellent working order. For
Sale: I have enjoyed the car very much, but it is time for me and my family to move on. I am not forced to sell the car, but I am willing to work with a serious buyer for a reasonable price. Please contact me with any questions or to set up an appointment to view the car in person. The car is currently located in South Paris, Maine, and is available for inspection by appointment. I am willing to assist in shipping the car worldwide at the buyer's expense.

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.
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.
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.
