A sorely missed American automobile manufacturer is Oldsmobile. They have gained an almost legendary status in the muscle car scene. Founded in 1897 as the Olds Motor Vehicle Company, the manufacturer went on to become a division of General Motors in 1908. Oldsmobile is now revered as an innovative company that built iconic vehicles with equally iconic engines. From 1964 to 1991, Oldsmobile built the Oldsmobile 442, a through-and-through muscle car, during its production from 1964 to 1987. Fun fact the "2" is a reference to the limited-slip differential. Feast your eyes on this second-generation 1969 Oldsmobile 4-4-2 convertible that is reported with an original mileage of 31,642 miles.
This classic muscle car bears an Aqua Blue exterior finish with superimposed dual-racing stripes in a contrasting black color. The 1969 Oldsmobile 4-4-2 convertible features a distinctive design of the era. The front features a longish hood with dual bulges that accentuates its aggressive style. A pair of round headlights on each side flank the 443 chrome badge in the center of the split black-painted grille. The lower portion consists of a chrome bumper and vents. More 442 chrome badging can be seen on the side fenders, while the rear hosts a chrome bumper with twin exhaust tips. While the car sits on a set of OEM color-matched 4-4-2 wheels, the top is covered with a powered soft top in black. The black interior features front leather bucket seats and regular leather seats for the rear. Wood grain accents are used for the interior trim to add a bit of class which extends to the 3-spoke steering wheel as well.

The 1969 Oldsmobile 4-4-2 convertible is known for its typical muscle looks and its innovative engine. The muscle car is powered by a 455ci (7.5L) V8 engine coupled with a 3-speed automatic transmission. The car uses a four-barrel carburetor that helps it to achieve 290hp of power; this enables it to zip past from 0-60 mph in just 7.0 seconds. Luxurious options in its time were power steering and power brakes, which are standard on the 4-4-2.
