I have for sale a rare 1978 Oldsmobile 442 W-29 Cutlass Salon Aeroback coupe.

It's Maroon and White with a Red interior.

It is factory equipped with the W-29 option (442 handling and appearance package),

260 ci V8 engine and 3 speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, A/C, and the rare factory optional aluminum sport wheels.

Inside, there are cloth bucket seats and console, and I added the factory rally gauges and the factory 2 spoke sport steering wheel.

The windows, door locks and seat are all manual operating.

This is a very straight, solid car that runs and drives great and really looks very nice inside and out. It gets thumbs up and lots of attention everywhere it goes.

This is not a restored car, rather, it's a nice original car that had been cared for and used as regular transportation by the previous owners, and then parked.

The car had been mostly parked from 1994 'till late 2009 (yes, 15 years).

It had been repainted at some point in it's distant past. It's an average paint job that is form an average paint shop, not a "show" paint job.

I purchased the car in September 2009. I am the second registered owner. Prior to my owning the car, it was last registered in 1994.

Since I brought it home I've spent a lot of time cleaning and detailing this car as well as bringing the mechanicals to their current excellent condition.

I would not hesitate to drive this car anywhere.

Here is a list of major improvements in the last two years:



fuel pump

radiator hoses

exhaust system

spark plugs

wires cap & rotor

R-134a a/c conversion


New tires - B.F. Goodrich Radial T/A

Front and rear Gabriel gas shocks

Front sway bar links

Idler arm

Center track link

Rear control arm bushings

brake master cylinder

Front brake rotors and pads

Rear brake drums and shoes



Re-colored badly faded plastic parts and upholstery

Installed leather wrapped factory 2 spoke sport steering wheel

Installed factory sport instrument cluster

Installed Hurst ProMatic II Shifter


Touched up numerous scratches in the maroon paint

Touched up several small rust spots and resprayed the lowest part of the white area (below the body crease)

Buffed and waxed

I've got a number of new parts that I was planning to eventually install.

They will go with the car. These include:

New front tie rod ends, upper and lower ball joints, upper control arm shafts and bushings.

A set of Olds 307 heads and aluminum 4bbl intake manifold, new upper engine gasket set and water pump.

Transmission shift correction kit (quick shift kit)

I'm asking $6750.00 and the car is located in the Chicago area.
