BaT Exclusive: 1967 Oldsmobile 442 W-30 Sports Coupe

clear that the Aurelia B24

This 1967 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme 442 W-30 Sports Coupe is a 31, 952-mile car that underwent a body-off restoration to show-quality standards in 2005-2006 and hasn’t been driven since. With 502 built, ‘67 W-30s are rare, and pillared sports coupes like this one are even rarer as just 129 were produced. Adding to this car’s uniqueness is the fact that it started life as a specially ordered Olds test car and saw use at the division’s proving grounds for a short time before being raced at NHRA events, where it had the benefit of  engine prep by Oldsmobile Product Development and suspension modifications done by Olds proving ground employee Dale Haas. Haas has provided a letter documenting the car’s history.  It is available in Southeast Michigan for $89k.

The W-30 option was introduced for 1966 to comply with NHRA rules requiring factory-built drag racers in sanctioned events and to make the 442 more competitive against other muscle cars. The option was obscure, however, and just 54 W-30s were built that year by the factory though dealer conversions were available. The package reportedly turned these cars into real beasts with additions such as a Force-Air induction system, a hot cam for the 400-cubic-inch V-8 and suspension modifications that included revised shocks, springs and sway bars as well as boxed rear control arms. In addition, the battery was moved to the trunk for better weight distribution. The car comes with two sets of wheels and tires: the stock rallye wheels with radial T/As shown and period-correct American Racing mags with Mickey Thompson Sportsman tires. We think it looks great as it sits. The car was professionally appraised in 2007 (the appraisal suggested a value of $150k) and all items were rated as being in “A” condition.
