AutoHunter Spotlight: 1968 Oldsmobile 4-4-2

This 4-4-2 may just be for-for-you

-

Featured on AutoHunter.com, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this 1968 Oldsmobile 4-4-2. It draws power from a 455ci V8, which is paired with a three-speed automatic transmission. Features include bucket seats, power steering, air conditioning, a center console, and power brakes. Finished in light green over a gold cloth and green vinyl interior, this second-generation 4-4-2 comes from the selling dealer in Illinois with a clear title.  

The hardtop body is finished in light green and equipped with a fender-mounted antenna, a driver-side mirror, tinted windows, side impact trim, and wheel arch moldings. 

A set of Super Stock II wheels wrapped in Daytona radial tires connects this 4-4-2 to the road. 

The cabin is furnished with gold cloth and green vinyl front bucket and rear bench seats. It offers manual windows, a center console, an AM radio, air conditioning, and a rear speaker. 

A 120-mph speedometer and a fuel gauge show important vehicle information. The analog odometer shows 62,233 miles, but the true mileage on this vehicle is unknown. 

Under the hood, the original engine has been replaced with a 455ci V8, which is paired with a four-barrel carburetor and a three-speed automatic transmission.  

Suspension underpinnings consist of an independent front setup and a solid rear drive axle. Power drum brakes help bring this 4-4-2 to a stop. 

The auction for this 1968 Oldsmobile 4-4-2 ends on Monday, July 1, 2024 at 11:45 a.m. (PDT).

  1. Well who doesn’t like old muscle cars? I wouldn’t know where to park it. I’ve got a few older Cutlasses out in the woods and a ’73 442 in the barn which I been working on for ten years. Obviously I’ll never finish but it’s just a reason to dream about a better day. Nice car. Good luck.

    • You are not alone, Richard. There seem to be plenty of enthusiasts out there who have long-term project cars. Good luck with yours!
