The Model –Technically the 442 was still a performance and trim option package for the Cutlass, and new for 1967, available only on that series’ Supreme models. Growing in popularity and acceptance as a top performer, it gained a reputation for being a “gentleman’s muscle-car” providing a bit more luxury than some of the lesser models. For 1967 a total of 24,833 Cutlass Supreme’s came with the 442 option and only 3,080 of those were convertibles. Differentiating the 442 from the standard Cutlass Supremes was a special paint pinstriping treatment, a black plastic egg-crate grill behind the unique chrome bars, special 442 badging and louvered hood, to mention a few. Not readily visible were such items as heavy-duty springs and motor mounts, with high-performance wheels wearing Red-line tires. Most all of the convenience options available in the Cutlass were also offered with the 442 package.

The Car – GM’s Oldsmobile Division always seemed to be the cutting edge for design and style and the Cutlass series throughout the 1960’s were definitely trend setters. But no other company could duplicate the mystique of the 4-4-2. This outstanding Saffron Yellow Supreme convertible is the perfect platform for muscle-car performance and looks. With matching yellow vinyl bucket seats with full-bench seat to the rear, plus the handsome white soft top, this car looks showroom fresh. According to the original window sticker the factory installed power steering and brakes, a deluxe steering wheel and even a remote-controlled outside rear-view mirror. One upgrade is a recently installed stereo system neatly mounted in the dash. For 1967 there was plenty of muscle to be found, and this 442 is a prime specimen of the power offered. Offered from our consignor’s private quality collection, it really deserves to be in an equally nice new home.
