Paul Martin's '71 442 W-30 Convertible


This 1971 442 W-30 Convertible was sold new at Dueck Chev Olds in Vancouver and was acquired by me in 1988 from the original owner. It is a well equipped version with all power accessories as well as tinted glass, tilt wheel, AM/FM/ 8 Track. As new it did not have the Rally Pac, Sport wheel or Super Stock Wheels.

A body off restoration was started in 1990 and finished in 1995. Over 130 NOS parts were used including all trim, body panels and even mufflers. The car had a 3.73 diff ,but that was changed to a 3.42 for better driveability.

Two unusual options are the auxilary trans cooler and a blower type rear window defogger. For show purposed the car rides on Polyglass tires and SSII wheels.
