Collector owned (and former President of the region's Olds club) - this is a very rare 1971 Olds 442 Convertible that was ordered with the very desirable W-30 performance package. Those in the Olds camp know what this car is and how rare it is, it's only one of 78 automatic W-30 convertibles built in 71 (how many are left). This is a frame off restored car - done by a well known restorer that's had plenty of magazine coverage - (Bunjie's Hot Rod Garage) he knows his stuff. NOM (but date correct) 455 engine built to exacting W-30 specs inside and out, the original Turbo 400 is hanging off the back of the engine as is the original Olds Posi rear. The Matador Red paint is stunning and the shine is show worthy, panels hang well and the gaps are very good. The 442 Stripes, OAI hood (orig), and white convertible top tell people that this is a special car - this car was invited to the Greenwich, CT Concours d'Elegance in 2003 and has been driven very little since. It has been shown on the cover of "Cruisin' New England" and the "Improper Bostonian" magazines with associated articles. This is a very loaded car - options include (besides the W-30 option), power steering, power disc brakes, tilt-wheel, AM-FM with an 8-track player (original GM 8-track still in the plastic), power windows, power locks, Air Conditioning, power top, Cruise Control, etc. (you get the idea). OKAY - so some high-lights >> It was an 80,000 original mile car with full documentation including 2 build sheets. The car was originally owned by an 82-year-old Kansas City woman and had a three-year complete frame off restoration using mostly NOS parts to obtain the highest possible level of correctness. The car has been driven about 2,000 miles since completion of the restoration and has been retired for preservation reasons, although it still goes to a few select events. This rare W-30 convertible is believed to be one of, if not the last W-30 made in 1971 as the car was built the second week of July 1971 and production ceased on July 10th that year. The car has a very long list of options totaling $ 6,209.41, and was a very expensive and heavily optioned W-30 in 1971. Asking $140,000 obo
