Sellers original description:
1971 Oldsmobile 442.
Stunning and beautiful, powerful and show winning, numbers matching and truly desirable: This 1971 Oldsmobile 442 is all of the above and more: Grand Champion at the 2007 Oldsmobile Nationals and stored in a private collection since, with a mere 35 miles since restoration. Documented and flawless from top to bottom.
We have the original Protect-O-Plate, warranty card and cowl tag. Bought new at Conner Oldsmobile in Lima, Ohio, the original owner was named Grover Cleveland Pruitt: Now there was a family proud of their state's former US president! Grover must have had a good experience with his new car and the selling dealer, as we also have the Protect-O-Plate to his brother's new 1971 Olds, purchased three months later! The P-O-P shows 29 miles at the time of delivery versus 17 for brother Bill's F88: The end of the muscle car era was coming quickly, and the salesmen must have wanted one last ride!
