In the midst of the full out horsepower war in the 1960s and 1970s, Oldsmobile broke through the looking glass, no longer were they lost in Wonderland. Off ering up a fullfl edged
muscle car, some companies would have tried to place a cute sounding name on it but not Oldsmobile, they stuck tough and placed number-442. Originally standing for 4-barrel, 4-speed and dual exhaust, it made the debut in 1964 as a special police car package. As the war of horsepower heated up, the name would loose the meaning, but not the impact. Eventually coming standard with the 455-ci 4-bbl power plant, there was
no doubt this one was all muscle car. Oldsmobile 442 may not have had the fame that the GTO did or the sales that the Chevelle SS did, but nobody blended luxury and performance together like Oldsmobile did.
