Oldsmobile is a division of General Motors. This 442 version of the brand is actually a member of the muscle car club. In the beginning of 1964 the selling of was first started in America. This was best designed to compete with the major contenders in the same category that was available at that time. This hasty attempt was nicely received and was flooded with applause. The basic idea about the design of this car comes on the basis of four speed manual transmission, four-barrel carburetor and also that with a dual exhaust. This car is available in 2-door coupe and 2-door convertible.
The car was fitted with 5.4L V8 engine 330 cu.in and also another 6.6L V8 400cu.in variant was available in the car frames.
These engine types are well complemented with manual, turbo hydraulic and automatic transmission modes. 4-speed, 3-speed, 2-speed transmission modes are present in the cars. The frame of the bike is designed with heavy duty clutch, heavy duty driveshaft, oversized brakes, shock absorbers and also with air cleaner. All these are combined to form this extremely potential car.
In the following years of 1964 this car underwent thorough and continuous changes. It was supposed to be continued till the last year of production. The use of the name was discontinued in middle years which were again revived through other car models. Last this car was produced in 1991.
