1970 Olds Cutlass 442 – 7.5 Liter Big-Block V8 Engine With a Very Cool Story
In this YouTube video we hear George talking about his 1970 olds 4 4 2, he found the vehicle while looking for a car for his son while he was 11, the son wanted a Ford but George isn’t a Ford person.
Since the son insisted they went up North to get it, but the seller there sold only Mustangs, they decided to get a Mustang, but while looking around he noticed a car that looked like a Chevelle on the corner, and asked the man if it would be okay to take a look at it. After a look, it was Oldsomobile 442 that was also his favorite car, so they decided to take both cars, the Mustang and the Olds.
