It might not be a loaded-to-the-gills 4-4-2, but this 1967 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme two-door hardtop for sale on Hemmings.com – which has benefited from some refurbishment, but apparently hasn’t required a complete teardown – looks like it could provide about all of the enjoyment of a 4-4-2 but without the muscle car tax. From the seller’s description:
Numbers matching. Equipped right. Factory original except the tires and wheels.
Engine: Ultra high Compression Jetfire Rocket V8 330 cu. inch/320 hp. Runs perfectly. With the dual exhaust this car has a sweet mellow tone.
Transmission: Automatic. Oldsmobile referred to this as the Jetaway transmission which proved very durable. This was basically a Powerglide transmission with an electronic kickdown. Shifts beautifully.
Factory Air Conditioning: Converted to the new R134a refrigerant. Blows cold, works well. Power Steering and Power Brakes: In 1967 Oldsmobile went to the dual master cylinder for safety. Both the PS and the PB work very well.
Factory Options: This car has the rare “Split bench seat and the Rear window defogger. Both very desirable among Cutlass collectors.
Body: Wonderful clean and crisp body panels. Doors, trunk and hood open and shut perfectly. These cars had razor sharp lines especially on the tops of the fenders and this car exemplifies the beauty of the 67 model. The Saffron yellow paint is very nice, and shines well. The chrome bumpers and stainless trim are in very nice condition. All glass is also excellent.
Interior: Beautiful and fully restored to very high standards. Seats were completely rebuilt and recovered by a professional upholsterer. Gorgeous! There is an updated radio currently installed. The factory original is available if you wish. Carpet, dash, headliner also very nice. Rubber seals like new.
Other items: Factory spare and tire in the trunk. Sorry, we do not have the original rims. However they are easily available thru many parts suppliers. The tires and wheels currently on the car are; Riken brand tires, 255/45Z/R18 on the rear and 225/40Z/R18 on the front. Tires show very little wear
