The 442 also features its original, factory-installed, matching-numbers drivetrain, including the 455 CI 4-barrel V-8 and Turbo 400 automatic. With the exception of the carpet, it retains its original interior, including the upholstery and burled-walnut dash, door and side-panel inserts. The 1970 model year would prove to be the high-water mark for the 442's performance. After two years with an emissions-oriented, small-bore 400, that engine was dropped from the Olds lineup, and the larger 455 was added to the A-body platform, opening up a new level of performance and durability. The base version of the 455 was a docile, yet incredibly responsive powerplant and developed 365 HP at 5,000 RPM with 500 lb-ft of torque at 3,200 RPM. The optional W-30 version was rated at 370 HP at 5,200 RPM, with the same axle-snapping 500 lb-ft of torque at a slightly higher 3,600 RPM. This 442 convertible comes with its original broadcast sheet, which verifies its provenance.
