James Smith's '65 442


I have finally taken the opportunity to send my Olds pics to you. I would like to add that your efforts in creating 442.com are greatly appreciated.


I rebuilt the engine last winter on my own with the help of the information provided on your site. I also did the spindle upgrade and installed disc brakes at that time.


I purchased the car out of Tampa two years ago. The previous owner's name was also Jim Smith. It was like destiny. The engine was painted the 455 blue(much like Ford blue)and it had to go. The paint job turned into a rebuild and several dollars. The history I was told about the car was that it once belonged to the inventor of the tandem parachute harness. One never knows. Thanks again for your work with 442.com
