455 CU IN OF POWER AND TORQUE

        The name '442' first appeared in 1964 as an option on the F-85 and Cutlass. The 442 was technically the 'B09 Police Apprehender' option which included the four-barrel carbureted 330 cubic-inch V8 with dual exhaust and 310 horsepower. The suspension. shocks. clutch. transmission. driveshaft. brakes. and wheels were also greatly improved. The name '4-4-2' evolved from the combination of options: four-barrel carburetor. four-speed transmission. and dual. meaning two. exhausts. The 442 had been offered in retaliation of the Pontiac Tempest GTO which was unexpectedly popular. Oldsmobile wanted some of those sales. The 442 was offered on any F-85 or Cutlass model except the station wagons. The Olds 455 V8 was introduced as the standard 442 engine for the 1970 Oldsmobile 442. With a 370 hp W30 option available. output was 365 hp and 500 ft-lbf. the 365 and 370 hp power ratings were conservatively underrated at a lower rpm. Both engines were believed to produce 410 to 420 hp. The 1970 Oldsmobile 442 was the pace car at the Indy 500 race in 1970. along with the Cutlass Supreme.
         
          The W-30's received a W-25 fiberglass OAI hood to replace the bumper scoops that were on the 1968 and 1968 W-30's. in addition to the standard 442 offerings. The W-30 also received an aluminum intake manifold. cylinder heads. special camshaft. distributor and carburetor.
         
          For 1971 the engine output was down due to a lower compression ratio which affected all of GM's engines. The base engine 455 was rated at 340 hp while the W-30 achieved a rating of 350 hp. For the first time since 1964 the sport coupe disappeared. only to return the following year.
         
          In the 1972 Cutlass Holiday coupe. Cutlass S sport coupe. Holiday coupe. and Cutlass Supreme convertible. the 442 name reverted to an appearance and handling option package. This package consisted of suspension upgrades. side striping. faux hood louvers. a unique grille and fender and decklid badging. When ordering the optional 455 engine. a rear bumper with cutouts for exhaust tips could be had. To keep the high performance arena strong. an L75 455 in³ V8 was available. but the smaller Oldsmobile 350 V8 came standard. In 1972 a special edition Hurst/Olds paced the Indy.
         
          The famous W30 option was still available in 1972 and included the still-potent L77 455 engine that produced 300 hp and 410 ft-lbfs of torque. The W25 featured a fiberglass ram-air hood. a lightweight aluminum intake manifold. anti-spin differential with 3. 42:1 gears. and heavy duty cooling.  Power brakes were only available with an automatic transmission. In 1972 only 113 W30 convertibles and 659 W30 coupes were sold.
