Adorned with the Hurst/Olds appearance package.

Vintage Cruisers of Flagstaff, Arizona is pleased to announce this 1974 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 W-30 455 big-block coupe up for sale. It may sound like a mouthful, but that’s because this is no ordinary 4-4-2. This W-30 455 example is mostly original but includes some added goodies.

For starters, it’s equipped with the Hurst/Olds appearance package embossed with special paint schemes and sleek pin striping. The car is dressed in its original paint with special H/O insignia on either side. The interior features the optional swiveling black vinyl bucket seats. A special vinyl top further designates the special nature of this model and gives it a T-top appearance.

The easiest and quickest way to tell the difference between a 350 V8 and a 455 V8 version is by looking at the front fenders of the 1974 model. If it’s powered by the 350, it has the Cutlass script emblem, while the 455 includes “W-30” decals in place of the written word.

The heart and soul of this 1974 Oldsmobile 442 is the powerful asphalt-ripping, high-performance 455 cubic-inch “Rocket” engine, which pushes out a potent 230 horsepower when mated to the 400 Hydramatic transmission with the Hurst dual-gate shifter. It’s equipped with power front disc brakes behind Drag Weld alloy wheels. With the turn of the key, this W-30 fires right up, sounds amazing, and runs great.

The car has recently been serviced and is among the last of the big-block muscle machines. What’s more, we all know that these types of vehicles are “only original once” and they don’t make ‘em like these anymore. This unrestored W-30 455 has just 13,488 miles on it with a mostly rust-free body and chassis.  The sale of this Olds includes the factory paperwork, all manuals, original spare cover, and jack.
