The story behind this muscle car is quite impressive indeed – the original owner was an Oldsmobile engineer who ordered the vehicle and immediately deployed it at GM’s Milford Proving Ground as a high-performance test car. After serving as a tester for several months, the Olds went on to campaign as a drag racer in several major NHRA events. According to the sweepstakes listing, this particular 1967 Oldsmobile 442 W30 is believed to be one of only two W30 cars special ordered by Oldsmobile employees for NHRA racing that year. It’s believed to be one of 129 W30 Sport Coupes produced for the model year.
Fast forward, and this 1967 Oldsmobile 442 W30 is now fresh from a no-expense-spared frame-off restoration. The car retains its original Ebony Black exterior with a matching black interior, as well as a list of “born-with” go-fast bits, including a numbers-matching 400-cubic-inch, 350-horsepower V8 engine, Forced-Air induction, red fender liners, relocated battery, and Rocket Rallye Pac instruments.
The sweepstakes winner will also receive a $250 gift card from Legendary Auto Interiors.

The black paint, blackwall tires and dinky hub caps all bring back childhood memories of the ’67 Oldmobile CHP cars, although those were the large Oldmobile Delmonts. I think that was the only year the CHP bought Oldsmobiles for their patrol cars.
The way I heard it, Chevy, Ford, and Plymouth models that year had wheelbases that were too short for CHP standards. Olds must have outbid Pontiac and Dodge.
My Dad had a 1967 Olds Cutless Supreme with the 400 CI V8 but it was more in luxury than performance. The shifter was on the console, and it had a lot of power options (windows, steering, brakes, and more) with a red leather interior and bucket seats. I loved driving it to college in 1974. He sold it to our family mechanic.
I always thought that “442” stood for a four barrel carb, four speed tranny, and dual exhaust. I must be wrong as this is an automatic.
It did stand for that at its beginning in 1964, but then in ’65 Olds redefined its meaning to stand for 4 barrel carb, 400 ci V8 and dual exhaust.
I thought so also but this is what i found
It was originally written “4-4-2” (with badging showing hyphens between the numerals), and remained hyphenated throughout Oldsmobile’s use of the designation. Beginning in 1965, the 4-4-2s standard transmission was a three-speed manual along with an optional two-speed automatic and four-speed manual, but were still badged as “4-4-2″s. Because of this change, from 1965 on, according to Oldsmobile brochures and advertisements, the 4-4-2 designation referred to the 400 cubic inch engine, four-barrel carburetor, and dual exhausts. By 1968 badging was shortened to simply “442”, but Oldsmobile brochures and internal documents continued to use the “4-4-2” model designation.
My very first car (just my own, not sharing with my brothers) was a 1967 Olds Cutlass, pale yellow in color and definitely not the 4-4-2 version. Purchased used from the original owner who was a retired man who literally only drove it to church, post office, and grocery store. Very low mileage and extremely clean. I was sooooo proud of that car. I purchased fancy new wheels for it and boy did I think it was a beautiful car! Looking back, this was not as attractive as the later versions of the Cutlass. My very favorite was the 1972 edition, which my high school principle purchased and I nearly drooled over that car.
Fast forward to now…my C7 Corvette is truly a beautiful car!
Had a 86 olds cutlass salon, bought new. T tops and all, bucket seats. Really nice car, best part was flipping the top of the Air filter cover, then floor it, sounded bad ass, even if it didnt move quick, was a head turner.
Forgor to mention, had a 5.0, V8 4 barrel
