1967 Oldsmobile 442 W-30 Saffron Yellow

The 1967 Oldsmobile 442 quickly became a legendary sleeper, and every Oldsmobile fans and muscle car enthusiast knows that very well. The appreciation for the car and its L78 engine with a four-barrel Quadrajet carburetor is quite easy to understand. There were 502 units of the 442 with the W-30 option produced by the factory in 1967, with some converted via a dealer installation. The W-30 trademark, the red inner fenders, came straight from the factory on W-30 cars only – at least, in the beginning.

In August, 1967 Super Stock Magazine tested a 4-speed, 4.33 geared W-30; it did the quarter mile, in 13.99 at 102.4 mph, right behind the 427 Corvette and the 400 Ram Air Pontiac GTO. How did it do that? Well, the naturally aspirated L78 V8 developed 350 hp and came with the W-30 forced induction package and an automatic transmission. This 1967 Oldsmobile 442 W-30 Saffron Yellow also packs power steering and brakes and unique exterior shade. The black interior, including bucket seats, a sports console, a tilt-away steering and rally gauge pack are a nice touch, but no one can ignore the Chrome Rally wheels and Redline tires
