One of 264 Oldsmobile 442 W30 convertibles produced in 1970. I bought it in 1998 with 262 miles on a frame off restoration, and currently the 442 has a little over 3000 miles.
Bought from Drew Koba who restored the 442 W30 with NOS parts collected over 15 years. Drew has told me he did all the restoration with some help from Ken at Specialty Olds.
