CMC has yet another incredible car in our showroom. This is a one owner 1970 Oldsmobile 442 Convertible! Yes, One owner, fully documented, fully restored and is one outstanding ride. Not many cars are this documented and maintained!

Robert A. Phillips purchased this car new on March 23rd, 1970 from Remlinger Oldsmobile Cadillac Inc. The car was special ordered with Sherwood Green Metallic Exterior with an Ivory Deluxe interior and Ivory Convertible top. Additional options were the 455 Rocket V-8 Producing 365 Horsepower and 510 LBS. of Torque, Turbo 400 Transmission, 12 Bolt rear end, Power Convertible Top, Factory Air Conditioning, Power Disc Brakes, Power Steering, Optional Sport Mirrors, SS II Rally wheels, Heavy Duty Suspension, tinted glass, Convertible top boot.

Mr. Phillips retained ownership until he passed away leaving the car to his wife. During his years as a caretaker of this special Rocket, he did one terrific job. The car was meticulously serviced from new and Robert made a record book of every service done including gas, oil, or a bulb being replaced. These records go with the car. He also moved quite a few times and he saved every title transfer receipt. He made copies of every title and the original title goes with the car. As you flip through the pages on this length documentation book, you will see the history of this fine Oldsmobile in full detail.

As you explore the documents, you will see that the motor was rebuilt, balanced and blue printed by NHRA Legend Otis "Otie" Smith. This was actually the last engine that Otie built! The car was always garage kept and well serviced.

Robert eventually decided to restore the 442 and had the car professionally restored in the original Sherwood Green Metallic. An all new legendary interior was installed including seat covers, carpets, door panels, convertible top boot, new weatherstripping. The exterior chrome was all rechrome plated including bumpers, door handles, moldings, and emblems. New grills tail light lenses, and ornaments accent the beautiful paint job.

Mechanically, this car runs and drives better then any A-Body muscle car that I have ever driven. This is a testament to the service and lovingly care that this 442 received from Mr Phillips and his family. The car starts right up on fast idle. The motor is strong and quiet. The air conditioning is very cold and the heat is hot. All lights and gauges operate well. The car ride so smooth and has no squeaks, rattles, or shimmies. I have personal driven this car for the weekend and took it out to get ice cream with the family. My wife said it feels smoother then her new Cadillac Escalade! This car is truly one of a kind!
