WHAT IS A OLDSMOBILE MUSCLE CAR

Oldsmobile was a pioneer for the 1949 model, they introduced their Rocket engine, which used an overhead valve V8 design. This engine produced far more power than the engines that were popular during that era, and found favor with hot-rodders and stock car racers. The basic design, with few minor changes, endured until Oldsmobile redesigned their V8 engines in the mid-1960s.  Oldsmobile's Rocket V8 engine was the leader in performance, generally considered the fastest cars on the market.

In the 1960s Oldsmobile's notable achievements included the introduction of the first turbocharged engine in 1962, the first modern front-wheel drive car produced in the United States (the 1966 Toronado), the Vista Cruiser station wagon (noted for its roof glass), and the upscale 442 muscle car.

Oldsmobile 442 - began as a 1964 muscle car option package (4-barrel carburetor, 4-speed manual transmission, 2 exhausts) on the F-85/Cutlass. In 1965, to better compete with the Pontiac GTO, the original 330 CID V8 rated at 310 hp was replaced by a new 400 CID V8 rated at 345 hp. The 442 definition was changed to "4" hundred CID V8 engine, "4"-barrel carburetor, and "2" exhaust pipes, and was named by "Car Craft Nationals" as the "Top Car of 1965." In 1968 the 442 became its own model and got a larger 455 CID V8 engine in 1970.

The final production day for Oldsmobile was April 29, 2004.
