Beginning in 1972 442 was no longer a model but, now an option. This vehicle was born in Arlington TX as a Cutlass S (V) code meaning a 455 ci engine with a Muncie M20 4 speed transmission. The motor is non matching number however, the original numberd block is included with the sale of the car. Trans. is matching and the limited slip differential is a 70, 12 bolt, Ponitac. When I purchased the vehicle the previous owner had begun adding the options associated with the 442 package, which I later completed. During the process of body work and painting, holes had been mistakenly drilled on both front fenders below 442. The fix was either to fill the holes and repaint or buy and install the W30 emblems, it was $400 vs $60. This car does Not have the W30 option. All gauges and lights work as they should. Ball joints, idler arm replaced, front end alignment, new starter and new a/c condenser, clutch, pressure plate just to name some of the parts that have been replaced just recently. I also have some photos of the body during it’s restoration.
