1972 Oldsmobile 442 W-30  (Lane Exact Detail) 1/18


Many muscle car enthusiasts refer to the 4-4-2 W-30 as the last true Oldsmobile muscle car. It was the last year the 4-4-2 could be ordered with the W-30 option, and subsequently offered 4-4-2's and Hurst/Oldsmobiles lacked the genuine appeal of the earlier model's performance and styling. 1972 also maked the year that the 4-4-2 lost its status as a model and once again became an option, as it had been until 1968. The basic 4-4-2 option, signified as W-29, cost a mere $29.00 over the base Cutlass price. Only 772 4-4-2 W-30's were ordered in 1972, the lowest total since 1967, with just 13 of those produced being convertibles.
