Introduced in 1964 to counter Pontiac’s popular GTO, the Oldsmobile 442 was an instant hit, but Olds engineers were not finished. In 1965, they bumped displacement to 400 CI, with a commensurate increase to 345 HP. Then in 1966, they issued Oldsmobile’s first Tri-Power carburetion package since the early 1950s, topping it off with the W-30 forced-induction system. The W-30 442 was visually distinguished by a pair of scoops mounted below the front bumper that fed fresh air through flexible hoses to a special chrome-topped air cleaner, not to mention its red, plastic front-fender liners which provided extra visual pop. GM outlawed the Tri-Power setup for 1967, but by then the W-30 package was fixed as the most potent addition to the 442, delivering 360 HP and 440 lb-ft of torque. The 1969 Olds 442 was very similar to the 1968 except the division tooth between the grilles, the trunk lid inlets for the taillights, wing windows deleted on Holiday Coupes and convertibles, steering lock ignition switch on the steering column, standard headrests were added to the front seats, and the paint scheme.Twin hood stripes were now available to highlight the new dual-bulged hood. Another hi-po engine was offered, the W-32. It came with the Forced Air Induction plumbing found on the W-30s, but it had a milder cam like the base engine. It was only available with an automatic. 297 were built. The Hurst/Olds returned with a Cameo White and Fire Frost Gold striped paint scheme, functional ram air hood scoops, rear spoiler, and the best part, a 380 hp 455ci V8. 906 production Hurst/Olds Holiday Coupes were built, plus 6 prototypes and 2 convertibles for a total of 914 cars.
