  • I first saw the 1966 442 Club Coupe in early April 2003 on the classified advertisement section of www.442.com. I had been looking to find a 1966 because I had a 1966 Cutlass when I was younger and came across several that I missed out on because, either I didn't act quickly enough, or l thought needed too much work. When I saw this one, I immediately emailed the seller and asked for more details & pictures but I received no response. All I got was the seller's answering machine when I called. I finally heard from him (he had been away) and called him back to discuss the car. Everything sounded good but I needed to check a few things and by the time I re-contacted him the car was taken - waiting for the buyer to come check the car in person. I figured "another one lost" but two days later I received an email that the car was available again as the previous buyer couldn't inspect the car for several weeks. I immediately camped on the phone (it was busy but I redialed for 20 minutes) until I reached the seller. We consummated a deal and a week later the car was delivered to Golden Oldies Performance, Inc. in Wiscasset, ME. We have since installed a correct 400 block with "B" heads and L-69 tri-carb (rebuilt to W30 specifications), replaced the 3.23 rear end with a 3.90 and installed an M21 close ratio in place of the M20. I am very pleased that I now have a 1966 442 and a rare one at that. The car is currently undergoing a complete repaint and all new suspension parts are being installed. It should be ready by the summer of 2011.
