1968 Oldsmobile 442 History The Oldsmobile 442 was a muscle car produced by the Oldsmobile division of General Motors. It was introduced as an option package for F-85 and Cutlass models sold in the United States beginning with the 1964 model year. The 442 title comes from the configuration of the car: a four-barrel carburetor, a four-speed manual transmission, and dual exhaust pipes. The 442 became a separate model from 1968 through 1971. All standard 1968 442 engines are painted a bronze–copper color, as with the 1967s, topped with a fire-red air cleaner. 1968 was the first year for side marker lights and the last year for vent windows on hardtops and convertibles. 442s for ''68 had unique rear bumpers, with exhaust cutouts and special exhaust tips. 1968 Oldsmobile 442 VIN 344878M363791 This 442 was originally delivered to Cooper Motor Sales of Coral Gables, Florida.
