TIn 1968 the Oldsmobile 442 became its own model, having previously been an option available on the Cutlass F85 line. The 4-4-2 moniker still stood for four-barrel carburetor, four-speed manual transmission, and two exhaust pipes, and brown paint for today’s 442. In time it has become a muscle car icon, ranking up there with Pontiac’s GTO or the Chevrolet Chevelle, and I can’t see why you wouldn’t want to drive this one unless you are afraid of discovering that you love big gas guzzling rusty brown cars.
