1976 Oldsmobile 442 PR Photos

PR materials were sent to all automotive journalists, newspapers, magazines and any other media for use in any articles contemplated.

For the A-Body faithful the 442 was still offered and still could be had with the detuned, smog stifled 455. At least it had torque. And of course, those of us in the know could figure out how to bring it back to 1972 specs - at least.

Photo one is quite interesting in that the car is equipped with "dog dish" hubcaps rather than the usual Rally Wheels. Had Lansing so given up on the car as to be willing to photograph it with such pedestrian shoes - or was a W-30 455 lurking within?

Photos with an asterisk (*) are high resolution and if copied to glossy photo paper will represent like the original. Other items will reproduce exactly as were originally generated.
