In 1970, the Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme and 4-4-2 both were chosen to pace the races at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. All cars (358 Cutlass Supreme and 268 4-4-2 convertibles) were white with black rocker trim and black/red stripes along the side and similar stripes going from the W-25 fiberglass hood to the trunklid. But another 4-4-2 was used as a pace car at another track, as can be seen by this ad on eBay.
This 1970 Olds 4-4-2 convertible is not one of the Indy replicas but is more of a dealer-prepped pace car for Dover Downs’ “Monster Mile” in Delaware. Sure, it’s white like the Indy cars, but this one has the standard stripes that were a part of the W-30 package, which included a 455/370 with bigger cam, aluminum intake, standard W-25 hood, and other hi-po items. Besides its pace car pedigree and being one of 264 4-4-2 W-30 convertibles built in 1970, it has power windows, air conditioning, sport wheel, Super Stock II wheels, AM/FM Stereo, and a host of other options.
Pics of the car look good but the seller says it’s tired and deserves a restoration. Are you able to step up to the plate? The reserve auction is currently at $30,100 with several days left. There’s no saying what the seller is asking, but a 1970 4-4-2 W-30 convertible is a high-dollar muscle car that is usually included in the best collections in the country.
