442 Cutlass Convertible car restored with a custom everything. This 442 Oldsmobile was birthed from the muscle car competition between Pontiac as a response to the GTO which was also a monster. 1964 was the year the “four-four-two” was born. The name stood for the four-barrel carburetor, four-seed manual transmission and the two exhaust pipes. Well enough with history, check out the 442 Cutlass Oldsmobile video .
