Michael Maxwell's '72 442

This is my 1972 4-4-2 W-29. It is based on the Cutlass S model. In 1972, 4-4-2 was an option on any Cutlass. The code for this option was W-29. I have had this car for 14 years. I am the 2nd owner. The color is Sunfire Yellow, color code 56. This was the only year for this color. As you can see, it is a beautiful color and the SSIII wheels really set it off.
 

Options:
W-29    4-4-2 Appearance and Handling Package. Includes body-side and deck-lid striping, 4-4-2 grille, 4-4-2 numeral badging on fenders and deck-lid, plus options FE-2 and Y-73. Available with any engine (350 or 455). I have the 350.

The base price for a Cutlass S Hardtop Coupe G87 was $3086.60. You won't believe the cost for the W-29 option! It was only $29.00! When you add up everything the take home price was $4368.90. The A/C and auto-trans jacked up the price a lot.
 

My 2nd paint job and restoration was completed this summer (1999). It was in the paint and body shop for 6 weeks. These pictures are after round one of the bodywork and just after painting.
