This particular 442 W-30 was treated to a body-off-frame concours restoration, which was completed by Mascar Classics in Costa Mesa, California. It includes a refinish in the factory-correct code-19 Black with White Pearl stripes, as well as factory-correct white bucket seats. The W-30 version of the 455 Oldsmobile Rocket V-8 was the most powerful engine ever offered in an Oldsmobile intermediate, and like its GM cousins, would be the zenith of the muscle-car era. With a 4.12-inch bore and a 4.25-inch stroke, the W-30 featured a 10.5:1 compression ratio, a high-performance hydraulic cam, big-port heads and an aluminum intake manifold mounting a specially calibrated Rochester Quadrajet carburetor. It was rated at 370 HP at 5,200 RPM with 500 lb-ft of torque at 3,600 RPM. It had a well-deserved reputation as a torque monster and was one of the greatest street performance engines of the era.
