The 1970 Olds 442 was the pinnacle of performance from Oldsmobile. GM dropped the regulation of no more than 400ci, so Olds responded with the Olds 455 V8 as the standard engine! Output was 365 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque with a 370 hp variant available with the W-30 option.
With the new engine and revised styling, the Indianapolis 500 came knocking requesting pace car services.
The W-30 package included a fiberglass hood with functional hood scoops and low-restriction air cleaner, aluminum intake manifold, special camshaft, cylinder heads, distributor, and carburetor.
A Rallye 350 model became available and not only came with the smaller 350ci, it also had an extremely unique look. The body was painted a bright Sebring Yellow, and both the wheels and the bumpers were the same color. Orange and black accents were added to the hood scoops and trunk-lid spoilers of the car.
To distinguish a 442 as a 1970 look for vertical bars in silver grille, rectangular parking lights in front bumper, and vertical taillights.
About the Artist:
James Knake is a professional illustrator/graphic designer with a B.F.A in Illustration from Ringling College of Art & Design. He has had a fascination with cars since he was a young boy. Always playing with car toys and building models. While in high school, he was hanging around with the guys who had Camaros, GTOs, Mustangs, anything fast with a big motor! James became obsessed with Muscle Cars from the 60’s and 70’s. After high school he purchased an old beat up 1967 Pontiac Firebird for $300 and proceeded to spend his time fixing it up and learning on the go. Bodywork, engine rebuilding, electrical systems, you name it. He sold that car years ago, but his love for classic muscle cars continues to this day. Now James has turned his attention to illustrating them. He decided to start painting some of his favorite cars from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.
