Chris Price’s 1967 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme 442 W-30 Sports Coupe is an actual 31,952-mile car that was originally built for NHRA’s C/SA class back in late 1966. The 442 package was offered only on the Cutlass Supreme series in 1967, a change from ’66, when it could be had on cheaper models. Another change from the ’66 model year was that an automatic transmission became available, which this car has. The 1966 442 W-30s were manual 4-speeds only.
Chris stated that this car is one of just 121 with the TH-400 automatic, which was equipped with a shift kit from the factory and switch-pitch torque converter activated by a second “dimmer” switch on the floor. How cool is that? When this car was pegged for the strip, it was followed down the line by specific GM engineers and was painstakingly guided in and out of the production cycle.
