1970 w30 Oldsmobile 442

Here is a rare opportunity to own a basically, unmolested numbers-matching w30 with paperwork! Car runs and drives perfectly.
Motor (455) nor the transmission (turbo 400) have ever been out of the car. Car has the factory 12-bolt posi rear and power disc brakes which were only available on the automatic models. It's had one repaint that looks amazing. Just a few chrome pieces have a little pitting. The interior in this car is totally original and is just about perfect.

This car also has some rare options for a W30 which include air conditioning, power windows, power steering, power brakes, column shift, and bench seat. It also has factory tachometer and front and rear sway bars.

The car runs phenomenally. Mechanically this car is very solid. No leaks to speak of. Transmission shifts perfectly. The motor is extremely quiet, makes no noises, and does not tap or smoke. It runs very smooth. The car also has the original carburetor, distributor, intake manifold, air cleaner, cylinder heads, etc. The floorboards in this car and frame are extremely clean and solid with no patchwork or undercoating to hide anything. The trunk is also spotless. The car has all the original sheet metal and is as clean as you could ever want.

Once again, this is a rare opportunity to own a very unique and sought after 1970 W30 Olds with paperwork.

Protect-o-Plate numbers match exactly, however, the written numbers on the paper inside the sleeve are 2 numbers off. This is clearly human error as all other information matches.

So what does everyone think of that last part, "Protect-o-Plate numbers match exactly, however, the written numbers on the paper inside the sleeve are 2 numbers off. This is clearly human error as all other information matches"? Legit W30?

This isn't the first time I've heard of things like that happening but I don't see any documentation that it's a W30

What about this build sheet? Does it hold any validity?

Of course, but that wasn't attached in the ad you posted. It's a Fisher Broadcast card, not a build sheet though

Yikes, so I found bad code in my site that was limiting the images being displayed to 18 and not 24. I expanded it. I still see some formatting issues depending on the browser unfortunately that I don't have time to immediately dig into. So broadcast cards don't help in validation?

Yes, In 70-71 they do. I assume for 72 as well. W30 (or W31) is listed on the Broadcast card. They don't do anything for 68-69's because W30 or W31 doesn't appear on the broadcast card. The only thing similar the broadcast card of a 442 has is W29 in 68-69, which only tells you its a 442. Of course the VIN tells you that too so it doesn't help much
