Oldsmobile got it just right for 1965. This included success in both the marketing department and making the performance package more powerful than it had been the year before.
One reason there was a jump in popularity was the increase in marketing to begin and that marketing was far more youthful to market the cars to younger drivers. Another, and perhaps bigger factor was that the package was faster for the year. The new 400 CID V8 was reserved solely for use in the Oldsmobile 442 package. The engine produced 345 horsepower, beating the previous 442 package’s horsepower by 35. The engine also produced an impressive (for the time) 440 lbs./ft. of torque, which was 85 more than the year before. The engine was now part of the trio of features that provided the 442 its name: the 400 CID engine, 4-barrel carb and dual exhaust. Despite the performance improvements, the 442 package kept the reputation it had developed the previous year as being relatively mild-mannered and one of the best handling mid-sized cars in all of General Motors. Most of this was achieved through a carefully tuned suspension that included front and rear anti-roll bars that was much stiffer than the standard suspensions available for the models. The 442 was available with an automatic for the first time, offering the two-speed Jetaway automatic.
This particular Olds 442 is in very nice shape an is, for the most part, a well preserved, straight original car that has had some light cosmetic restoration along the way to keep it looking as nice as possible. The engine, transmission and the rest of the running gear is in excellent shape, running and driving perfectly in line with one might expect with a well preserved classic Muscle Car. The power steering and brakes make the car easy to maneuver. The body is remarkably straight with no modification visible with close inspection and no signs of rust issues in the past or present. The interior is clean as is the engine compartment and trunk area. The under side is also very clean as it has enjoyed life in dry storage through out the years. No disappointments here.
