This 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 W-30 Tribute convertible takes everything you love and turns it up a notch. That's how you get extra vibrant red paint, an interior loaded with everything you want - including cold-blowing A/C, and a fresh performance build of the big V8. So this is the kind of drop-top that's just the ticket for the true muscle car enthusiast.
Refinished in a deep metallic red, this has the smooth style you get from a quality application. It's not so fancy that you'll be afraid to cruise this convertible, but some people may also swear the finish is candy-coated. Good chrome and beautiful lines are all about that Oldsmobile elegance. It's also still a proper 442 tribute, and that means speedy upgrades like the Super Stock wheels, hood locks, and a notched rear bumper for the dual exhaust tips. There's a terrific white stripe package painted on the shows off the hood scoops and frames the wheel wells as it zooms down the side. And when the white convertible top is in place, this even looks like a sharply coordinated two-tone package. It all makes for a classic that's equal parts power and panache.
Because the white looks so good against the red, you've also got a full parchment white interior. They invested the right money here to be vintage yet fresh. For example, the upholstery, carpeting, and dash have been refreshed, but they keep the stock style, right down to the wood-like trim and button-top seatbacks. Even the full courtesy light package greets you when the door opens. This is loaded with factory-style features like a power convertible top, power locks, and power windows (the passenger side may need a little help.) Even the upgrades are subtly done, like the factory controls for the air conditioning now blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant, and the vintage style radio is really an AM/FM stereo that features Bluetooth. This has the best in driver's features with front bucket seats, a center console, and an Olds sports steering wheel mounted on a tilt column. Plus, the sporty round gauges even feature a tic-toc-tach.
Under the hood is exactly what you want to see: 455 cubic inches of big block muscle. With a solid investment here, it looks show-ready with the bright blue block, polished valve covers, and large air element that gets fresh air from the hood scoops. And this clean look is your gateway to talk about the solid investment in the motor. We're told this was rebuilt about 2k miles ago. This includes upgrades like Speed Pro pistons, roller rockers, and an Edelbrock intake. There's also an updated cam that adds power and rumble to the dual exhaust without getting too aggressive to stop this from feeling like a true Oldsmobile. And there's an investment in overall quality with the high-volume oil pump, Pertronix distributor, and an engine re-seal. The TH400 three-speed automatic transmission was rebuilt within the last couple of years to remain stout but smooth. It feeds a 12-bolt Positraction rear end with versatile 3.42 gears and an expensive W27 diff cover upgrade. And while you're looking at the rear don't forget to notice the stronger setup of boxed trailing arms and a thick sway bar. And the power steering, power brakes, front discs, and wide cooper cobra tires make a great all-around driver.
